if you’re planning from afar, i would totally suggest getting a planner!  they’ll have all the local connections for vendors and such.

here are some ideas to start with:

lounge: try lounge appeal for the modern look or Concepts Events Design who has some great slightly vintage styled pieces (they have the contemp ones as well)

flowers: i fell in love with Paula from Rae Florae.  i had seen her work in a magazine and loved it and then my planner suggested her as well so i knew she was good and super reasonably priced as well.  we eneded up using Karen Tran since pauld didnt have our date

some other florists that i liked:

modern bouquet

botanica

lighting: i would talk to your venue first, since its a museum, the have a pretty strict list of who gets to work there.  they’ll probably have two or three companies to choose from

my planner rocked.  she also did all our graphic design (which is how i found her in the first place) and it really brought all the little amazing details together in the end. Jessica from Moira Events.

a good resource i found (other than Jess) was doing some serious blog stalking.  i would find a photographer from the area that i liked and see who they worked with.  i did that until i realized that i would spend hours looking at pictures and forget to eat meals.  then i hired someone to do all that for me 🙂

hope this helps!

Also check out bridalinsider.com.  It’s a San Diego only bridal site.  Great info!  

I went to a wedding at the Museum of Contemporary Art last year.  It was gorgeous!

@laurenrock:

We had a friend do the lighting for us…many DJs offer lighting packages…don’t know if you’re doing a DJ or band…but you might ask.

I will echo what others said about lighting.  You’d be surprised how reasonable they can be.  I also planned from afar and it was a life saver.  I was able to get a discount from alot of the vendors who my DOC recommended as well.
