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. These are the type of vendors I would hire for my own special events.
Singer / Piano / Guitar
One of the best vendors to book for your wedding! I've photographed countless weddings over the years and seen many couples spend a fortune on a band or a famous singer but no one captured hearts of the guests like Tess. I kept hearing all the guests rave about her the entire wedding. The bride herself said many times that she feels like she hired a Hollywood Star. Whether you'd like her be part of your ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner gathering or all of it she will capture your guests hearts like no one else. Tess can sign countless/hundreds of the most popular and beautiful songs that you will want to dance or sign along to. You can listen to some of her music on her site. Contact info also below...
I've worked with many videographers throughout the years but I find it's rare to find a talent like Jeff's. He really is a true artist. His work is beautiful and timeless. I've seen many of his videos and every time have been very impressed which is why I continue to recommend him to couples. He is busy so if you're hoping to get the job done quick he may not be the person for you but when it comes to getting it done beautifully so that you can have the best memory ever of your beautiful day, he has never disappointed anyone I have recommended him to.
You can contact him through his site at: perspectivestudiosca.com
DJ & MC
This must be one of the best DJ and MC services we have yet experienced at any wedding. JM is upbeat and energetic and he will get your guests dancing and involved. If you're looking to have your guests remember your event like no other, then JM at iDJ Services will be a perfect fit for you.

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

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:
Piano and Saxophone
