Hi Kate, my mother’s friend used to be an event coordinator with Bella Flora and is doing DOC for my wedding as a family favor. I’ll ask her if she’s still doing it professionally for you, if you’d like!

Wow, now I am in love with Nouveau! Their lookbook is incredible – I just got so many ideas from reviewing it!

If you’re still looking for a photographer, find out who shot that lookbook!

Wow, I have spent the last 45 minutes poring over the blog of Vue Photography! Meg Baisden is good too, but Vue has some really innovative shots – like the one of the couple reflected in the groom’s ring.

We’re going with Ursula Graham out of Pensacola. I think we are, anyway. I’m actually flying down there tomorrow (Tuesday) for ten days, and meeting with her on Wednesday in person for the first time to go over details and possibly sign the contract.

I am a Panama City bride and I love my wedding planner.  I have hired her to be a full fledged through the process planner, but I think she does DOC as well. My family has known her since I was a little kid (literally, she used to be my baby-sitter!) shes organized and friendly and is the go-to cooridnator for all the locals. (Locals mainly because she doesn’t have a website since she gets enough business from word of mouth.)  Her name is Rachelle Youd and I would highly recommend her.  [email protected] is her email.

 

As for VUE photography,  I met with Genya and loved her.  In my opinion, after lots of research.  Paul Johnson is the best of the best and no one can believe he’s from Panama City!  He’s a steal for his quality, but that doesn’t mean he’s cheap. Genya (VUE) is second to him I believe.  She has an amazing personality and eye for detail.

NOTE TO ANYONE LOOKING AT VUE PRICES:  Those are basic package set-ups, but are by NO MEANS set in stone.  KateMW said you have to get the biggest package to have two photogs – not true!  You can add on a  additional photog to any package, its just the one she’s got it listed with.

Rounding out the top 3 photogs o teh Gulf Coast (IN MY OPINION) is Rae Leytham. She is my photographer and I love her and her husband to death.  They travel ALOT for weddings, and it actually doesn’t change the price by much.

Paul’s wife does most of the website and blog if thats where you saw the comments.  I am surprised to hear they were bad mouthing anything, I’ve met them and they were so sweet.  It could be worth asking them to see if they found a particular snafu with that venue that you might want to be aware of ahead of time.  They are pretty down to earth people. And if he is in your price range – def worth straightening that out.

I am not sure which list you are looking at but Rae should be on the Seaside vendor lists.  I’ve seen her work from there and is amazing. Rae will be hauling it all the way to PC for my wedding.  (OMG RAE is my photographer!! I signed a contract with her a few months ago and I am still excited about it!!)  I am shooting a boudior session with her next week, so then I will be able to give my personal opinion on working with her.  But from the meetings and emails, her personality rocks. Her and her husbands photography is top notch. And I am told their professionalism and preparedness at weddings is unrivaled. (I’m told that by other photographers who know all about the cameras and back up systems etc who all ooh and ahhh over their work and materials.)

She’s definitely not on your vendor list, but I signed a contract with Ursula Graham out of Fort Walton Beach the other day – great style, dirt cheap. Photos were comparable to Dawn Anderson (who, by the way, if she is on your vendor list I would recommend – she came highly recommended to me, but was out of my price range).
