My seamstress/veil maker–http://www.honeycombveils.com/

She was amazing–created flutter sleeves for my Hentry Roth dress with lace that was an almost perfect match, did them alterations, and took it in for me when I lost the weight even though she was working on tons of Broadway projects at the same time!  She also was willing to bring my dress to my apt when my final fitting was scheduled 2 days after I had an emergency appendectomy.  She was the best!  I originally bought a veil from her, but after working with my dress for so long, she wanted to create one that was designed to go with it– for free!

 

I also looved my cakemaker and my florist (local Alabama vendors).

My florist was my favorite vendor (Last Petal). She was the easiest vendor to work with and without much direction she executed some beautiful designs.

I would have to say our day of coordinator. Though she was new to the game she was orgainized, professional, and executed my vision for the set-up perfectly even though we were communicating over email with a distance of a couple thousand miles between us.

She even saved the day when I failed to bring the liquor permit to the venue! I would have lost it if there was no alcohol available.

I got my dress at Kleinfelds and absolutely loved them there. Stella was my seamstress (I really need to send her a Thank You!) and she did a fantastic job on my dress. I also had to cut my dress to get it off of me (that’s a long story), and they fixed that at no charge!! So now I have a pristine dress to… do what with, exactly?

My florist was by far my best vendor – Susan Garden of Garden Party (http://www.gardenpartynapa.com/). She was wonderful to work with, very affordable and her designs were incredible!

I loved so many of them.  Here they are, kind of in order of my favorites!

DOC: Sarah, Lusardi, New York Engagements was probably my favorite vendor of them all.  She was so organized and made it so the entire wedding weekend was totally stress free.  Really think the world of her!!  http://www.nyengagements.com/about.htm

Videographer: Steve Taub, a documentary film-maker.  Reasonable, captured all the important moments, beautiful editing, and the nicest guy.

Florist: Magnolia.  Loved Angelica, their work was great, and she was willing to work in our budget.  Plus, despite the unexpected 95 degree day, the flowers looked stunning and still looked great at brunch then ext morning.

I was more than happy with all my other vendors: Sally Duvall (makeup), Red Carpet Bridal Beauty (hair), Dave Cross (photography), Staccato (Etsy vendor for paper goods, she was AWESOME)

The only vendor I was dissapointed in was our music vendor – The Marc Topaz Band.  During the reception, the band itself was amazing, great.  We got a ton of complients on them. BUT there were a number of issues I had that I didn’t think I should have had for such an expensive vendor.  1) Ceremony musician showed up AFTER the time the ceremony was supposed to start, so we ran 15 minutes late.  I never received an apology (even though the band said they would charge ME for every 15 minutes over the agreed upon time they would work). 2) We asked for a short hora, wrote it on the sheet of instructions.  It went for TWENTY minutes and they only stopped because I finally went over and asked them to.  It was ridiculously long and I was super tired and sweaty from it.  3) The band leader was generally not responsive or interested in our input, he thought he knew best.

It would have to be our coordinator, Daniela De Luca of Dolce Vita Weddings. She really was my eyes and ears in Rome. For those thinking of a destination wedding in Rome, I highly recommend Daniela!

  • Wedding: September 2018 - The Desmond Hotel in Malvern, PA

I honestly can’t choose, they were all so great….. in terms of a personal connection, my favorite was our DOC, Jenn Poletti of Perfect Planners because we have become great friends.  But all of our vendors did a great job!

Definitely our photographer, who happens to be married to one of my best friends. They recently started a photography business and he does great work. They are now located in Colorado due to a military move.
