It’s that time of year again! I’ve wrapped up another incredible wedding season—a year of beautiful events from Charleston to Annapolis. I have loved sharing each of my couples’ gorgeous weddings on my blog throughout the year, and I love expressing gratitude to my clients for bringing me along as their Charleston or Annapolis wedding photographer.
But I can’t let the year end without expressing gratitude for some of the other key players in my weddings. It’s a fact; I couldn’t do my job without my fellow wedding vendors. So much of my artistry and inspiration comes from the beauty that is placed in font of me on a wedding day. And while my couples are responsible for designing their events and picking their vendors, it’s the vendors themselves who make the magic happen!
So here’s a resounding thank you to all of the incredible vendors who I’ve been lucky enough to work with this year!
I love these people so much that I wrote a whole post dedicated to them earlier this year. These planners have been instrumental in keeping wedding days running smoothly and such a joy to work with:
Caterers and Bakers
I have worked with so many amazing caterers this year, who have not only produced delicious food and cakes—but beautiful food too! From fine dining, gourmet cuisine to bar-be-cue, my weddings have had a wonderful variety, thanks to these fine people:
– Sugar Hills Bakery – Chicago
It’s not a party without a little bit of libations, right? These people have kept the party going for my couples all year long:
What is a bride without her wedding dress?! My brides this year have looked incredible in so many show-stopping gowns from these lovely designers:
Florists are another vendor that elevate all of the weddings I photograph. As an Annapolis wedding photographer, I really don’t know what I would do without gorgeous blooms provided by these florists:
