Our Preferred Wedding Vendors

Welcome to our preferred vendor page!  The following is a list of vendors that we confidently recommend for your wedding day.  How does someone become a preferred vendor with us?  To start we must have worked with this vendor either personally or through our photography business & be able to serve weddings in the local Cedar Valley area.  The vendor must have a website that allows for easy contact as well as a phone number.  The performance of the listed vendor is also something that we feel strongly about in the fact that if we were to get married again we would have no problem contacting them to help us.  We also limit our preferred vendors to three businesses per group (except for Reception sites) to keep things simple.

If you’re a vendor that we’ve worked with or you’re a bride and think we need to fill the gaps here with your vendor please let me know!  We want this page to be as full of a resource as possible for your wedding day.
