Tips from REAL Wedding Vendors

I asked REAL wedding vendors what they wished their clients knew and here are their answers:

Kory, owner of Kingston Photography:
Backgrounds and Locations-
"I wish they would discuss if there is going to be sort of color coordination so I can decide in advance what background or location to use." 

Wedding Planners-
"YES! You should definitely hire a planner, someone to be in charge of the event....there is nothing worse than getting orders from 10 different family members!"

Children-
"If the children in the wedding tend to get cranky when they are tired, make sure they take a nap before the shoot."

Weather-
"Check the weather on the day of your wedding. Keep in mind that if you are taking outside photos and it is windy, you need to have a comb, brush, mirror, hair spray, etc on hand."

Private Chef and Caterer Liz Davis:
"The total head count is the most important thing! I can work with any budget, but it does not do you any good if the head count is not accurate. Also, please hire a wedding planner. I have been a part of too many events that had too many people in charge. One key person that I can communicate with saves time and confusion."

Cosmetologist Jamie of Hair by J requests 3 simple things from you:
1) Be on time for your appointment on your wedding day. The day will already be hectic and filled with time constraints. Make sure that your wedding party is on time for their appointments also. 

2) Know what hair style you want. Do trial styles several weeks before your wedding day to determine which style looks best. 

3) Wear a button up shirt to keep your hair style in tact. It also comes in handy when you are getting your makeup done...no worries of rubbing your shirt against your face!

Mr. and Mrs. Pedersen 8.9.2019

May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky. I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage.
– Jalalud’din Rumi Maryam and Matt were married on August 9, 2019 at The Olana Mansion. This Persian-American wedding was filled with love, gorgeous flowers, and the most exquisite Sofreh I've seen.











Ashton Loves Kenyetta

"My heart stops when you look at me."

Ashton and Kenyetta were married on September 29, 2018 amongst family and friends. My favorite part of the ceremony was when Ashton and Kenyetta said their vows to their children, sweetly professing their unconditional love to them. The love was definitely felt throughout the church. The Bride chose rose and gold for her reception colors and they turned out beautifully.

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!




Congratulations on your engagement!! Now regain your composure and call your parents. Tell them the good news first. Then send a mass text to all of your family and friends!! The 'proper' way would be to hold an engagement party and formally announce your engagement, but let's face it...technology has changed all of the rules! So here's an idea....tell your friends and THEN have an engagement party and 'formally' announce your engagement!!

I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner (hint...hint) to help you with the logistics (date, location, theme, budget, style, etc.) of your wedding.

As your Bridal consultant I will guide you through every minor and major detail of your wedding day. Once you, your fiancé, and I have discussed the logistics of your wedding, both of you can sit back and relax knowing that your wedding day will be in the hands of a professional. 
On the day of your wedding, I will get you and your future spou…
