I’m a Tucson bride!  We haven’t decided on a date yet, but already have a photographer, videographer and location in mind.

Cool!  I know for sure I want Michael Chansley as my photographer.  He has a videographer that works with him that is located in Utah, but is very talented and shoots in HD.  His name is Gerry Ruiz.  

The place I REALLY want to get married is the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch way out on the east side. I think it would be really cool! 

How long have you been waiting on photos LB?  I’ve heard from other brides that Michael Chansley gets back photos fast.  I’m not getting any prints other than possibly a canvas print.  The images are going to be on a CD which I can just take to Jones Photo or somewhere and get prints done cheap. 

We still haven’t decided on a date yet.  Thinking maybe September 2009.

Hey guys!  I’m psyched we have a Tucson board!  OK, here’s the scoop on the photos.  Chris put the full set on Pictage a few weeks ago (for ordering prints, albums, etc.), but they’ve got his copyright on them, so I can’t post from those.  

We just went over to his house on Sunday, had some drinks, and started picking out our favorites and talking about albums, proofs, files, and all that good stuff. He’s actually giving us the files since we’re ordering a few different albums, and he dropped them in the mail Monday or yesterday, so they should be here, like, any second.  Believe me, I’m dying to post them.  They’re pretty awesome, and Chris was talking about submitting them to Tucson Lifestyles Magazine. 

In the meantime, I need to post a vendor review (specifically, because I want to warn any Tucson brides against Maribelle). 

Yay! I’m so excited to hear about Tucson weddings! Definitely going to keep an eye on this board.

I’m a Tucson bride too!! We are getting married May 23, 2009 at Westward Look Resort!  I was happy for Mrs. Lovebug but sad to lose her posts after she was married!

To answer your question Macuna, we are using Complete Music DJ Services – http://www.cmtucson.com/.  The owner is named Jason and he is sooo awesome! He works with our Wedding Coordinator (Anne Bryan of Creative Events) a lot so there is a good working relationship.

Lovebug’s recent vendor review was really helpful and we hired Ambrosia of Tucson based on her recommendation from her blog about Janie months ago. I have also heard that Maribelle Cakery is NOT a good vendor to use so everyone out there beware. When my FI, mother and I went and tried Busy Bee Bakery, the cake itself was good but we found the owner to be very chilly and pushy.

Congrats to all Tucson brides!

We are using Andy from Satyr Entertainment.  His rates are very reasonable, and I like that he has no time limits.   He was the DJ at our friends’ wedding, and he did a great job.

I am using Kim with Windy City DJ’s. He works with Stillwell House a lot and knew the place really well and was also very highly recommended by Candace Flores, the owner of Stillwell. I am doing all the planning long distance from Baltimore, so I am relying heavily on her judgements, but I think he will do a great job. I did not meet with Maribelle, but I did do a tasting with Busy Bee. I thought the cakes were really good, just not what I was looking for when it came to my wedding cake. I think I am going to go with Village Bakehouse. I was really impressed with Paulette there. She too came very highly recommended to me.

Hey guys!  Anyone wanna be quoted in Tucson Bridal Magazine?  I’m writing an article about engagement rings (and how couples chose them) – if you’d like to help me out (by giving a short explanation of how you decided on your ring), I’d be most appreciative!

You can reach me at [email protected]

Gracias, amigas!

I’m also having ours at the Stillwell in November – and doing most of the planning from the Bay Area.  We are playing with the idea of hooking up an ipod for music and having a friend MC…any thoughts on that?   Working with a pretty tight budget.  Out of curiosity, how much does Windy City charge?
