Hmm…I’m getting married in Carmel too and our coordinator for our reception site gave us a little list of preferred florists.  When I find it I’ll post a few of the vendors.  ๐Ÿ™‚ 

We’re getting married there May 2010!  So excited!!!

I just checked on my blog (I haven’t posted in awhile, my fiance and I just moved back to Sacramento from San Jose, wo we’ve been very busy!) and I saw your comments!  ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Yep, my list is the same one that Richard from La Playa gave me.  I’m considering asking a florist in Sacramento to travel to Carmel…have you looked at photographers yet?  I wasn’t crazy about anyone that Richard suggested either. ๐Ÿ™

Yeah, I thought Mike was the best on the list…but I wasn’t crazy about him either.  We’re going to meet with a photographer from the Santa Barabara area, and we’re both pretty crazy about her.  Also, she gives the option to have a photobooth set up (I have no idea where it would go) but we both that it was a really fun idea!  http://www.jenslotphotography.com

I’m a little nervous to look at anyone else on his list as far as other vendors go.  Are you going to have your cake made there or through a baker?  We’re still on the fence about the cake…I guess we’ll have a better idea of what we want after we do our tasting.

Hi, I am planning a wedding in Monterey, CA this November and currently live in Carmel.  I have searched up, down, and all over for good and inexpensive vendors.  We are basing the wedding out of Carmel and we will shuttle guests to Monterey for the wedding and reception. So, feel free to ask me if you have any questions about vendors and I will see if I have any info on them.  I am using Pacific Grove Florist for the flowers and Kim LeMaire of Ensemble productions for photgraphy.  She has a GREAT pricepoint (and personality)!  Here is her web page…

If I could choose my florist all over, I would probably go with Rosehip floral, but too late!  Here is her web page…

Sorry, that is the wrong link to the florist.  I will have to track down her card if you still need a florist.  I saw her work at a bridal show here and it was amazing.

I’m getting married in Carmel too! When we went around looking for sites, I collected vendor lists from all of them. And we interviewed a few planners who gave up some info. You should talk to La Playa and ask him about florists that aren’t on the list- if you’re going local, there’s probably only a few to choose from. If you are looking for a few price gouging floral “designers”, those are easy to find, and I can give you their info. Do you want a floral designer or a someone to supply flowers to order? I heard that Swenson & Silacci is a great value. They have a crappy website- devoted to their online store- but they have better prices than my florist. If you’re ok with the non-designer type, ask them for an estimate. They may have more creative license than what I’m letting on- my planner didn’t have me interview them.

Also try cccrflowers.com, she might have good price point.

yelp.com, there are floral vendor recommendations there too.

I’ll be checking out the florist websites tonight.  I really need to start cracking on ceremony & reception decor and flowers.

Any suggestions on music?  That’s another area that I could use some help in. 

We’re meeting with our photographer on Monday – she’s from the San Luis Obispo area, and we’re crossing our fingers that her travel fees aren’t skyhigh.  But we love her work and are really excited at the thought of having a photobooth set up (she sets everything up for a pretty nominal fee.)  http://www.jenslotphotography.com if anyone is interested.
