Here are a few vendor's Jo would love to recommend.
"Our flowers. I honestly didn't care all that much about them beforehand, other than to make sure our florist kept out a few flowers (gladiolas, daisies) and included herbs and fruit her product. But the day of, when I saw my bouquet... I fell in love. There's something transformative about fresh flowers that make you feel special. Vendor: Viviana at Petal Play Design.Thank you so much to Jo and Wyl for sharing their day with us. Big thanks to Crasco Photography once again for sharing the beautiful photos. And of course, congratulations to the happy couple! We wish you the very best.
My dress. I got a sample Christos gown from a few years back at White Chicago, a designer gown resale shop. The dress was in perfect condition and it felt like it was made for me! I was comfortable all night and felt absolutely beautiful in my entire ensemble. I got most of my attire over the internet, actually My hair comb was Naugi, my earrings were Redot, my bracelet was White Aisle, my veil was Veilshop, and my shoes were from Zappos! It was much easier to shop at home than get swept up in the limited selection and high prices of a bridal shop. I made the sash myself, and used an old pin I had for my something old.
Our photographers. Oh man, I will recommend Carasco Photography to anyone that listens. Scott Nava literally laid in the street (a busy, downtown street, with cars driving my his head) to get the shots he wanted. His constantly creative eye discovered special places in my hometown that I'd driven by for twenty years and not realized were there. He brought out the best in me, Wyl, our wedding party, and all our guests. I'm still looking at photos and finding things that I think are special.
Our DJs. Rachel and Kate from Toast & Jam Djs were never, not for one second, cliche. We asked for very specific music (sixites motown, Sam Cooke, Oldies, Rat Pack and Big Band for the cocktail hour, and a list of specific songs) and they never once played something that didn't fit is fabulously. The dance floor was packed from the first dance to the last, with even the old folks whooping it up. K & R even handled the added challenge of Greek music and dancing flawlessly!"
