During this really hard time of COVID-19, I feel the need to share some joy around in my community! A lot of small businesses, mine included, are being hit very hard by this pandemic.
Today I will be sharing my personal favorite vendors to work with + spread some love!
First and foremost, I’d like to explain my feelings on this whole issue of COVID-19. My photography business took quite a hit. This is devastating because I was starting to feel really good about it. My side job at Plato’s Closet has also taken a fall. Our store hours have lessened, my hours got cut, and overall there are less and less people coming in. Seeing stores with no toilet paper and moms who are unable to get formula is absolutely terrifying and I think we may have taken that part a step too far. I’m not sure why we need to hoard supplies… Another thing I am terrified of is my pilot school starting in June! I am SO SO worried that I won’t be able to start on time. But cross your fingers and lets get this happiness started! Without further ado…my favorite Arizona wedding vendors:
If you’re looking for your wedding to run as smoothly as possible, not having to worry for a second about ANYTHING, and to have a stress free experience- I cant stress how important wedding planners are. But even more than that, I can’t stress how amazing Miranda Madison is at her job. She is a professional cake slicer, dress bustler, podcaster, decorator, designer, planner, friend, and ACTUAL PROOF that angels do exist.
When it comes to picking a venue, I think there is a lot more to it than just how it looks. This is the place you are going to be saying “I do” to the person you will spend forever with!! You want to make sure this place can feel like a safe, beautiful haven.
The first venue I recommend is owned by Norman and Lorraine Wellington and is called Wellington Ranch. As SOON as you step foot on the property, you are welcomed with open arms and it feels like another home. This ranch has a rustic – modern feel to it. From BEAUTIFUL sunsets, to beer burrows, to lights strung above the dance floor, this venue has it all.
Another venue I highly recommend is Wedgewood Weddings at Lindsay Grove! Every single time I get the chance to shoot here, I get SOO excited!! The space is just absolutely jaw-dropping and is a photographers lighting heaven. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves…
HAIR + MAKE UP
This to me is a no brainer. If you’re looking for an amazing hair and makeup team, I don’t think you can get any better than Bella Bridal Beauty. They are an on-site traveling team. They will make you feel like the queen herself, I can assure you that. Literally a Disney princess.
Every girl dreams of the day she puts on her wedding dress, gets the butterflies, and “says yes to the dress”! I don’t think there is a better place to do that at than Brilliant Bridal. Wow. Their dresses never ever fail to amaze me.
Thank you all for reading about some of my favorite Arizona wedding vendors!! I figured now is the best time to spread some love and cheer amongst the chaos happening throughout the world. Please give them a follow and wash your hands everyone!!!!
