Jason and I not only wanted the best of the best vendors, but we also wanted ones who we bonded with. Vendors that we felt comfortable with and ones we knew would make our wedding day that much more special.

Introducing Our Newly Weds helping the Newly Engaged blog series. I thought it would be helpful to ask my clients to share some post wedding wisdom to accompany the blog post. I had such a great journey with Krista and Jason. We all have Lisa Marie from L. Marie Events to thank for bringing us together. We hit it off at our first meeting. Our one hour engagement shoot turned into 3 hours, (but felt like 10 minutes 🙂 Prepping, planning, fun meetings, the amazing wedding day and finally reliving it all at their In-Studio preview. One of the first things I remember Jason saying at our first meeting was, “We want to be able to have a drink with our vendors after the wedding is over”. How cool is that? I love that Krista and Jason understood that is was important to surround themselves with not just vendors, but with people they could connect with. Vendors who would care as much about the wedding day as they did and take care of them. They got it that not all vendors are the same and building a team of great wedding professionals to surround yourself with was critical in the success of your overall wedding day experience. Thank you Krista and Jason for such a wonderful experience and for all of the great moment you gave me:) OX,Denise
Guest Post by Krista Oliver-Here I am a couple months since my wedding has past and I couldn’t be happier with each and every decision Jason and I made. You always hear, read and sometimes experience those wedding “horrors” that are sometimes preventable, and sometimes not. I am still in complete awe with how lucky we truly were in having the absolute perfect wedding day. I firmly believe someone up there was looking down on us. The reality of it though is all within the vendors you hire. Jason and I not only wanted the best of the best vendors, but we also wanted ones who we bonded with. Vendors that we felt comfortable with and ones we knew would make our wedding day that much more special. To say we succeeded in this is an understatement. I had the BEST vendors, from start to finish. Every single one of them surpassed all my visions and dreams. I understand some couples have strict budgets, but my biggest piece of advice would be to never skimp on the services and vendors. You can always swap out a rose, for a hydrangea, or those silk napkins for cotton ones- chances are your guests won’t even notice. They will notice poor food, not so good music, lack of service and all those imperative aspects that make your wedding stand out. Jason and I would look forward to meeting with each and every one of our vendors. They all understood my visions and made me feel at ease. A lot of brides are worry stricken in the weeks leading up to their wedding. I had not a worry in the world. I had the utmost faith and trust in each of my vendors. I knew they would deliver on my wedding day and boy was I right. I was also lucky enough to have the world’s best wedding planner. When I say she is the “worlds” best, I mean every single word of that. She gave me the gift of being a guest at my own wedding. She handled everything for me in the weeks leading up to my wedding. On my wedding day, she and her team were godsends. My wedding would never have been what it was without her amazing services, and her dedication to Jason and me. Because of her I was introduced to most of my amazing vendors, Denise being one of them. I am so grateful for not only having the most perfect wedding day a girl could dream of, but for being able to relive and remember that perfect day through all our beautiful pictures and albums. We couldn’t have been more blessed.- Scroll below to see some moments of their beautiful wedding and check out their list of vendors!
Krista loved the way her dress looked from above, like a trumpet. So I was sure to bring my 8 foot ladder to the wedding 🙂 The sun was going down pretty fast at this point. Having them look up at the sky gave us the last rays of natural light.

Krista and her “gorgeous” girls!
This was not prompted at all. You rarely see the groom get helped an fused over like this. These men know how to get ready!
The happiest guy in the world and he looks fabulous!
