A Little Help From Our Friends

The Beatles were right, sometimes everybody needs a little help from their friends. Planning a wedding is no exception. Planning a wedding is tough business. It can be some of the most stressful times of your life. I know because I’ve done it. There is so much to plan and so much to do and you have so many people telling you different things it can be hard to know who to trust.

Since I’m in the wedding business, people often ask me for referrals of other vendors who I trust to do a good job. To help answer that, here is a list of some other vendors I can recommend. I’ve only put people in this list who I trust and who I know. Hopefully this will make your wedding planning easier.
