Okay, my peeps. You’ve asked & asked and I’ve finally gone and made a big master list of all the wedding humans we love working with. I’ve been holding off on making a preferred vendor list because I never want to give the impression that you *have* to work with these vendors, or that they’re the only ones worth your time.
First off, despite what the industry might tell you, no wedding vendor is a “MUST-HAVE” for your wedding day. They’re literally all optional (yes, including photography), so we never want to pressure people with the expectation of including other vendors if that’s not what they want for their day! Whatever kind of wedding you want to have is entirely valid, and don’t let pinterest and your-mom’s-good-friend-who-does-wedding-cakes tell you otherwise.
Secondly, there are SO MANY incredibly talented, lovely wedding professionals out there, and we’ve only worked with a small handful of them personally, so please don’t get discouraged if the folks on this list are out of your budget, already booked, or not a great fit for your vision. I guarantee you, there are some amazing PNW wedding vendors out there, and this list is just a jumping off point in your search!
Okay, with that little disclaimer out of the way, here are the people who work in the PNW wedding industry that we know and love, either from personal experience working with them at weddings, or we really love them from afar and haven’t had the chance to work with them yet, but we’re always looking to.
