I haven’t picked a florist yet,  but I am leaning towards Kebbie Hollingsworth… only because the few florists in the area that I’ve been able to find seem to suck and Kebbie didn’t.

I haven’t met with a florist yet in Pensacola.  That’s the next thing on my list, but I want to meet with Celebrations in a couple weeks and I hear they are supposed to be great.  http://www.celebrationstheflorist.com/Site/Home.html

I can send you a list of florists from my vendor list if you’d like. 

I think K Hollingsworth who MissACS mentioned is on the list as well.

On a happy note…we just booked our DJ today!  Woohoo!

 

Best of luck!

I’m getting married in Santa Rosa Beach at Eden Gardens State Park!! Where exactly are you getting married? If you’re getting married closer to the Panama City Beach area, I can definitely help you out!

bellenga – We have not booked a florist yet, but I am going home to Pensacola in March to find one. And as far as entertainment, we just booked my FI’s friend DJ Shadow (his real name is Roger). He used to be the DJ for Seville Quarter, and he’s great. But, if you want a Jimmy Buffet type band, you might want to call a bar called Cap’n Fun on the beach, they have a cover band that plays there (or used to, I haven’t lived there in a while) but they played a lot of his stuff, and they were good.

For florist – Fiore is fantastic! They are near downtown Pcola. Prices are very reasonable.

I am finding Southern Floral Traditions doesn’t get back to emails quickly. Like a week goes by…  and no response.

Hey ya’ll!!! I am a Texan who is getting married in NC but doing a trash-the-dress shoot in FL! haha We are going to be honeymooning somewhere around Destin and I just wondered if yall have any advice on reasonably priced photographers, from what I have looked at it seems like the photographers in FL are much more expensive than those around TX and NC… thanks for your help!

@wakeboardbetty

Hmm, there are so many photographers in this area it’s hard to narrow one down. 

We are going with Sublime Studios.  http://www.thesublimewedding.com/

but I’d also check out Patsy Brown  @  http://www.patsybrown.com 

Both are great and reasonably priced…especially for this area.

I also love Rae Leytham http://www.raeleytham.net/ and

Meg Baisden @ http://www.megphoto.com/

PM me if you need more specifics. 🙂

Went with Southern Floral Traditions. Faith has been reasonably priced.

Catering, we’re going with Nancys Haute Affairs. Cannot recommend Paul enough.

Photography, gwynnemark.com  They’ve been great so far. Love their work. Great attitude.

Rentals, Kents Events.

DJ… this was tough because I felt there wasn’t much out there. Boogie Inc. We’ll see how it goes!

I’ll leave our officiant and his day of coordinator wife out for now. They’ve been kind of useless so far. we basically had to write our own vows even though “custom vows” were part of his service/price. We tried to let him do custom vows, twice, but they were clearly cookie cutter vows as the wrong names were in there a couple times… and the other time, he gave us a highly religious ceremony even though we discussed something very different. PM if you want to check your officiant against mine to ensure you’re not on the same path.

We booked Nancy’s too. Our wedding is 5/30/10. We haven’t decided if we’re gonna do a food tasting. How was all the food? And service?
