Planning a wedding can be overwhelming with so many choices around us. Doing countless weddings over the years I have worked along side many vendors and been adding to the list of my favorites for those times when some couples ask me for some recommendations or perhaps for when I happen to plan my own future events. Realizing how helpful it's been to many couples I decided to create this page. If you have any further questions about any of these vendors feel free to send me a message. I hope this list helps to some. These are the type of vendors I would hire for my own event.
Videographer - Andrey
Working along side other vendors can be touch especially in small spaces as we are all trying to get the best angle and the best shots while not obstructing the view for others. I have worked on at least a dozen of weddings alongside Andrey and found that we work really well together landing each other a helping hand and help each other get the best shots we can without obstructing each others views. Andrey has over 20 years of experience in this field and yet I find htat he charges far less than most videographers I have come across. You will get your raw files along with a 20-30 minute edited version to your favourite music. He is also willing to make changes if you have specific requests. He charges a flat fee of $200 per hour for a minimum 8 hour day. Check out some of his work at the following link:
Videographer - Jeff
If you have a higher budget I would highly recommend Jeff Toledo. His videos are true artwork, captivating and beautifully put together. He uses some of the latest technology including drones to add some beautiful details to your video. To see some of his work find him on Facebook or to view a price-list and get in contact visit his site at
Neetu is another one of my favorites. She does beautiful work and she's so good that she even teaches. I love how she's able to pull out scissors and quickly trim the hair if necessary to create that perfect look which can make a huge difference in the bridal hair styling. She's easy to work with and if you find yourself missing something chances are she has it in her bag LOL.
Hair and Make-Up
One of my favorite make-up artists. She's amazing at doing a smoky eye which I love. She can do a simple and natural look or she can go all out making you shine like you are meant to be in a magazine. Atefeh can usually come to your preferred location.
$300 for hair and make-up / $150 for a trial of both hair and make-up

Living Magic - by Julie
Simply extraordinary face painting, magic shows and balloon animals. If you have at least a few kids at your event Julie is a wonderful person to hire to add something unique and memorable for kids to enjoy. I photographed a couple events when she painted kids faces, arms, etc with beautiful and lively cartoon characters and she does it quick. She can pain up to 15 kids an hour and she only charges $100 per hour. Highly recommend her. I personally love the photos I took of the kids painted faces as they all look amazing and add so much fun and joy to the event. Highly recommend! website:
Another wonderful way to add some fun to your even for those little kids that love fairytale characters. I have personally observed children being so captivated and at awww with some characters, following their every step of the way, that I think this truly makes any event unforgettable for many children. Pacific Fairytales have dozens of characters to choose from Frozen to Rider at Paw Patrol and will leave those children amazed and talking about them days after.

5M Photobooth / Paper Flower Wall Rentals
I have come across them at an event where they did a paper flower wall for photos. I though Mark and Grace did a beautiful job. They have several walls that can be rented and can even do a custom wall for the same price as they often end up reusing it again. See their site or other pages for samples of what they do:
