Patti Black and the girls at Black Ink created some of the most beautiful paper products I have ever seen. They worked with me through out the entire year of planning the wedding and designed beautiful save-the-dates, invitations, programs, escort cards, menus--literally if it was made of paper, they did it. Patti is an expert on proper stationery etiquette and Sloane designed some beautiful programs to help us save some money, too. They are great at getting everything ready in time (even last minute) and it is even just a breath of fresh air to walk into their store during all of the craziness of planning a wedding.

Drew B Photography
Drew did both our engagement and wedding photos and we liked her so much that our entire family is now hiring her. Not only is she incredibly nice and caring, and easy to work with, but she is also an incredible photographer. In fact, she is one of the best photographers I've ever seen, weddings/portraits or otherwise. She has such an eye for lighting and scenery, and captures your special moments in an incredibly artistic way. My husband and I got our photos back from Drew and couldn't believe it was us in the photos--she makes you look like models in an incredibly artistic wedding ad. If you're getting married you MUST at least check out the photos on her website... they will speak for themselves.

Hidden Garden Florists
The Hidden Garden creates the most beautiful flower arrangements I have ever seen. Trisha Haner was our coordinator and my part-time therapist, and she seriously made my dream wedding come to life. She is so easy to work with and not only is able to easily interpret what you're looking for, but also thinks of amazing ideas and details that you would have never thought of.

Makeup the Bride
Heather is so talented at doing makeup that after my wedding I've never been able to go to the MAC counter again! She has an amazing eye for complimenting your natural features and hair/eye/skin tones, and she makes you look extremely glamorous, yet natural. She did my makeup PLUS four bridesmaids and my mother in only a few hours, and we all looked like we were ready to go to the Oscars. On top of that, she is just an all-around fun and amazingly pleasant gal to spend time with leading up to your wedding. She kept me extremely calm and--most importantly--kept me looking like I was! I can't say enough great things about her as a professional, plus her prices are extremely reasonable for her work.
