Who were your vendors? (DJ, Photographer, Flowers, Hair/Makeup, Dessert, etc.) How did you choose them?
DJ- DJ Dewy
My two cousins used him for theirs, I highly recommend him. He called a week or two before the wedding and got a feel of our likes and dislikes, and he did not disappoint!
Florist- FireFly Flowers Gardens ( Sandy Pehler)
She is the mother to my Maid of Honor. Sandy has her own gardens and does beautiful and affordable work. She is at the farmers market in Winona all summer and fall, and her flowers are just gorgeous. I would definitely check her out! She took what I had in my head for my flowers and went above and beyond what I expected.
Dress(es)- Wedding Tree
My Matron of Honor Kacia is the manager at The Wedding Tree, so I knew hands down I would be getting my dress there. She set my appointment up with Mel, and she was amazing! Me listened to what I was looking for and being a plus size gal, that isn't always easy to find. by the third dress I found what I was looking for! I also found our bridesmaid dresses there and the groom & groomsmen items. We had a wrong size shirt the day of and was able to swing in, switch it out with no problems! Highly recommend The Wedding Tree!
Photographer- For HIS Glory (Artina Becker)
Artina and her husband blew Ryan and I away when we got our photos back. Her talent with the color scheme we picked turned out just beautiful. Artina was so organized and kept our large wedding party on track. I still can see her chasing my 5 year old son around and snapping some amazing candids of him, he definitely stole the show!
Videographer- Vision Media (Ryan Pitts)
Ryan did an amazing job with our wedding video. I think we watched it about 5 times when we got it back! He captured a lot of beautiful moments between Ryan and I , and also between my son Mason and I, and Ryan and Mason too. We have been to a few weddings since ours and are always excited to see Ryan knowing the couple's wedding video is going to be awesome!
