i’m using leonora at the paula dorf counter at Henri Bendel.  I got to meet Paula once through my job and she personally recommended her. I had my trial and it was *insanely* wonderful, compared to other make up artists i tried out.  You can call the store at 212-247-1100 and ask for her.  Good luck!

Here are some vendors I’ve dealt with: Makeup/Hair-Sachiko Yanese [email protected]  (917)282-2081  I had my trial with her a few weeks ago and I LOOOOOVE her! She lives in Queens, but can travel to your wedding the day of for no charge if it is within an hour of the city.  She is fantastic!  Can’t say enough about her.  I have pics so email me if you would like to see some. 

Sissi Chan  [email protected] She is doing the hair for my BMs only but she does charge a fee to go outside of the city. (My wedding is in Long Island).  I have not met her in person, but the pictures of her work are phenomenal and she’s quite affordable.  But she only works with long hair.  She also does makeup work, but I cannot attest to the quality as I have not tried it first hand. 

Photographer

ADA Studio http://www.adastudioinc.com/ I hand picked my photographer Lisa who also has a side business on her own.  If you’d like to get in touch with her personally, I could give you her contact information, but I’d rather not post it as I do not know her preferences.  She did our engagement shoot a few weeks ago and I will be getting pics soon so I can send them to you if you’d like to see.  She is very easy going and very nice!  We  love her style.  Although she did "pose" us for some shots, the results that came out looked very natural.  My FI and I are big fans of unobtrusive photography and we are confident in her.

Dynasty Weddings http://www.dynastyweddings.com They are a team of brothers and close friends who started out doing DJing services at High School Parties, but have expanded their services to include much much more.  I met with Chris (the DJ) and his brother (the photographer) back in December and we instantly fell in love with their style.  They are very energetic and highly resposive.  We had already hired our photographer by the time we met them, but had I not, they would have definitely been a consideration.  The pictures they have on their website is only a small example of what he has done. Some of the pictures that I saw when I met them were truly stunning.  I would definitely recommend their services!

Florist http://www.designsbyroseinc.com They are a team of two and are so sweet.  You can either go to their location in Far Rockaway or they can come to you to show you examples of their work.  They are very reasonably priced and I’ve been to 2 weddings that have used their services.  They were prompt and their flowers were very fresh!

Officiant

Pastor April [email protected]   She lives in LI and we met her a few months ago.  She will be officiating our wedding.  She is a very calm and peaceful person and my FI and I fell in love with her when we met her. The way she works is phenomenal!  She allows you to be as involved as you would like in the ceremony.  She drafts up examples of things she can say and you can decided what you like or don’t like.  As she put it, you can be as involved or uninvolved as you like.  For my FI and i we are all about making the ceremony personal, so we have worked very closely with her!  She’s very responsive and reachable at all times!  We love her!

OK, I think that’s enough information for now.  If you’d like to see pics and stuff just email me at [email protected] and I’ll send them to you!  Good luck!
