Looking for the top wedding vendors in Southern California? Here’s some of the best people you need to hire for your wedding day!
While there are dozens of different kinds of vendors (ranging from caterers to planners to furniture rental companies to on-site churro cooks), there are a few common categories of wedding vendors that most weddings need.
The most common vendors you probably want to hire are:
These are probably the most common vendors couples want to hire for their wedding day (aside from a wedding venue, of course!). Let me help make sure you get the best team possible! Here are my recommendations.
Without a doubt, Alesha from De La Planning is one of the BEST wedding planners I know!
Why hire Alesha?
She has excellent attention to detail and won’t miss a thing, she promptly communicates with both clients and vendors, and she makes sure that everything runs seamlessly on a wedding day by putting out fires that the newlyweds never even hear about!
Hiring a good wedding planner will take a load of stress from your mind. Instead of worrying about final details just days before your wedding, trusting your wedding planner to handle it will give you peace of mind and the ability to truly enjoy your own wedding experience.
DJ Will Gill gets the crowd dancing like no other DJ I’ve seen before!
Why hire DJ Will Gill?
He has a fun, approachable personality that connects with your people, he has helpful tricks to get guests out of their seats and onto the dance floor, and he knows just what songs to play for each and every moment!
Don’t trust your friend with an iPod and an aux cord to be your wedding DJ. Will comes with all his own sound equipment and years of experience to deliver an epic night of dancing that your guests will remember for years to come!
Well…hopefully this one is pretty easy to figure out 😉
Drew Wyman from Scrap Media Films creates films that truly capture the feeling of your wedding day!
Why hire Drew?
He has a documentary-style approach that captures candid moments at weddings, his editing lends to a storytelling effect that helps you relive your wedding day, and he works seamlessly with photographers which creates a relaxed, collaborative environment for everyone.
While it might seem like a good idea to hire a “cheap” or brand new videographer, I wouldn’t recommend it. Drew comes prepared for any lighting or sound situation and tons of knowledge when it comes to editing your wedding video so you’ll be thrilled with the outcome!
Vanessa from Cultivated by Faith makes beautiful flower arrangements that bring life into any wedding celebration!
Why hire Vanessa?
She works closely with engaged couples to create bespoke floral arrangements that fit the tone of their wedding day, she isn’t afraid to create something different and unique to fit her clients’ needs, and she can even remain on-site at your wedding to repurpose arrangements from ceremony to reception.
DIY flowers are exhausting and incredibly difficult. Trust me, I’ve put together a few flower arrangements for dinner parties and couldn’t BELIEVE the amount of work! Trust Vanessa’s experience and vision, and she will make sure your flowers bring warmth and life into your wedding!
Emily from Emily Lynn + Co. is a talented hair and makeup artist that will make you feel amazing!
Why hire Emily?
Emily’s goal is to make you feel beautiful and empowered through your wedding hair and makeup look. She is devoted to making sure her clients are thrilled with the outcome and does trials with her clients prior to the wedding to perfect their vision. Emily ignores the lie that heavy makeup looks better on camera and opts instead to create natural, glowy bridal looks that benefit every shade and skin tone.
So, what are you waiting for?! Hire these top wedding vendors in Southern California for your wedding day immediately!
