Favorite Wedding Vendors
Over the years I've had the opportunity to work with some great wedding vendors, and I wanted to list a few of them here. In general, these are people who I have found to be experienced professionals who radiate a sense of geniune friendliness and grace under pressure, and who deliver great results every time. Exactly the type of people you want around you on your wedding day!

I've worked a few weddings with Eddie now and he's a cool cat who knows how to get the party moving. I also personally love that he has a lot of great latin music in his library.
Carl stands out among the many DJs I have worked with for both his classy demeanor and the great music he plays. As a veteran of hundreds of weddings, I've heard the tired old playlists too many times to count. When Carl is on duty, his playlist lifts my spirits and gets my foot tapping as much as it does for the guests.

I've run into Jim Skipper at a bunch of wedding now and he's a relaxed professional who produces great video, works unobtrusively and is a pleasure to be around. Highly recommended.

It is harder for videographers to be unobtrusive than it is for photographers, but these guys have pulled it off every time I've worked with them. Check out the great work on their website.
