UNDER CONSTRUCTION: THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE.
Here's a collection of local vendors I have worked with and would trust for my own events. I update the list when I'm impressed by new wedding vendors... and if you'd recommend someone, let me know and I'll look in to them.
A genius when it comes to designing with color.
Mira is a local industry OG. Her boutique stocks the trendiest & prettiest gowns and has professional staff that know how to make you feel gorgeous. Christie (gown attendant) is an absolute gem.
CLAY BY STEPH
Looking for something a little fun and quirky for wedding jewlry? Clay earrings are so trendy right now, but the best part about them is that they are incredibly light.. so you can opt for a statement earring without feeling them all day.
There are a lot of options out there, but I know Steph will take care of you. She launches new earrings twice a month, but takes comissions if you're after something extra unique.
I don't know the proper terminology for this, but the thing about Jocelyn is that her makeup STAYS ALL DAY. I mean, it looks the same at the end of your wedding day as it did at the beginning. No lines, no smudges, no places where your foundation has worn off... you get the point.
I am no makeup artist, but I've photographed enough weddings to know that all-day power is not universal. I've also never photographed a wedding where she's made the day run late. She is a total professional and worth hiring!
MAKEUP - MARKELLE ROCHA
I met Markelle at a styled shoot I helped put together in 2019. She did makeup for two bridal models in under an hour - and they looked incredible! So friendly and professional, I'd happily work with her again and recommend her to my brides. <3
PAGEO LAVENDER FARM
A classic venue just outside of Turlock, Pageo has vintage charm and gorgeous gardens around every corner. The staff are incredibly helpful and have prepared for every possible scenario - including a Plan B for rainy days. (So important if you're having a winter wedding)
BIG VIC'S BBQ
I'd hire Big Vic's for the cheesy bread rolls alone. They are THAT good. Thankfully, they are also a super professional business with friendly staff, great food, and affordable pricing.
I have never heard a bad word about them from former brides, and they've always treated me well as a vendor. If you're looking for a tasty meal where everything is made from scratch, you need to contact these guys before they're booked up.
