our

FRIENDORS

We’ve shot with hundreds of vendors at hundreds of weddings over the years and the people below have made the final cut. Not only will they give you the best experience and product, but we highly recommend hiring all your vendors as a team.  We love working with these friends, and a happy team makes it an even better experience for you and us!

Planners:

This is the one vendor we recommend the most! Think you, your friends and family can manage on your wedding day without a planner?  You can’t.  Want to save money?  We get it.  But don’t skimp here.  At least hire a month-of (there’s no such thing as a day-of coordinator) planner to take over, contact your vendors, create a timeline, run your rehearsal and wedding day.  This one cost will give you a worry free week before your wedding.  Furthermore, it keeps us from playing planner on your wedding day (which we’ve had to do in the past), freeing us up to document more and organize less. We can’t tell you how much more you, your friends and family will get to enjoy the day, too!

Hair & Makeup:

We only recommend teams that do both and that come to you!  These vendors are all the best at not only giving you the look you’re going for, but also keeping you on time for the entire day!

Stage Labs, Pacific Entertainment, A Rental Connection
Catering & Bartending:

CATERING: Command Performance, RoomForty, Tres LA, ECO Caters, LA Roots

BARTENDING: We are always so impressed when bartenders understand that at weddings, making one drink at a time can take too long so instead the pre-make batches of the signiture cocktail and pass them during cocktail hour so more guests get served faster.  And with only one bar on site, guests are thrilled!

Paper Goods:
The most important thing when choosing your save the date, invitation suite, place cards, signage, etc is consistency!  It’ll elevate your photos immensely!  That cute sign you found on Etsy?  Replicate it with your design to stay consistent. Choose two fonts – one bigger and bolder for headlines and one smaller for the little details.  And stick with one design and your two fonts.  Better yet, choose from among our recommendations below and have them do it all for you!

WE RECOMMEND: Prim & Pixie, Minted, Paper Culture
