I need some recommendations on: florists, caterers, cake makers, & officiants in the Austin area.
Since I am not from the area (we live in the DFW), I’d really love some help finding affordable vendors that are still wonderful to work with and do an amazing job! We are planning to make a trip to knock out some wedding booking in late August & I’d really like to have an idea of where to start.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks a bunch,

Cake- Rise and Shine Bakery! They don’t do a whole lot of wedding cakes, only 1 (maybe 2)/weekend if they do. They were *MUCH* cheaper than the other bakeries in the area, but they only do buttercream; no fondant. So keep that in mind. The cake was really yummy and not overly sweet. Their chocolate cake is REALLY good (and I normally don’t like chocolate!). I got a white cake with a layer of lemon curd and a layer of berry filling. Mmm! I can’t wait to eat my anniversary cake! http://www.riseandshinebakery.com/
Catering- Kenny’s Coffee and Catering Co. They were super affordable and delicious! We had a BBQ buffet and their pulled pork is AMAZING. Like, the best I’ve ever had! awesome. Everything was well seasoned and Kenny was awesome to work with. He helped SO much with thinking of a layout and logistics. He met me at our venue and spent 2 hours working with me and answered every question I had. We also got our bartenders from him and my guests loved them. One in particular (he was really cute, hahaha). But I have absolutely no complaints. Definitely check them out. Also, we got a coffee bar from them and that was a big hit! Their coffee is delicious!
Edit: Just a note about Kenny’s.. they can do much more than what’s on their “catering menu”. Such as the pulled pork. I didn’t know about it until my brother went to another wedding they catered and he had it there. So if there’s something you have in mind that’s not on the menu, just ask!
