I got married in November and used the following. I highly recommend both.
Cake: Edna at Panifico - http://www.panifico.com/ She did an AMAZING job on my cake. They looked and tasted amazing. She's not afraid to try different things.
Band: DJ Platinum - http://www.djplatinum.com/ Brandon is VERY professional and can please a diverse crowd.
My daughter is getting married in San Antonio in May. Our band is Southern Edge with Chris Story! He is Fantastic and comes highly recommended!!! His website is http://www.chrisstory.net/
Our florist is Botanika. Melissa is wonderful! Her website is http://www.botanika.com/
Our cake lady is Cathy Young with Cakes by Cathy. She works out of her house, does not have a web site and was the Knot 2007 pick, and usually stays booked way ahead. She came highly recommended by every wedding planner and cater we interviewed! We went for a tasting a couple weeks ago and the cakes were to die for! Our wedding planner told us that most of his brides don't even go for a tasting, she is that good!
Good Luck with your search!
I'm getting married in July and absolutely love all the vendors I am working with!
Our florist is Pizzini Designs. Steven is FAB! He has great visions and really understands how to make your ideas into reality.
Our cake is from Sweet Traditions. Lynda is beyond accommodating and highly impressive.
Our DJ came highly recommended by a couple of friends.
Let me know if you need any recommendations for any other areas. I love this!
I used Margaret with A New Leaf for flowers and HIGHLY recommend her. She'll work with any budget and has tons of pics for ideas.
I also HIGHLY recommend Cakes & More by Cynthia. She was so accomodating; we booked on a tasting of her frostings alone! We literally had no cake left at our wedding, everybody loved it. We used Pino de Fazio via gigmasters.com for Spanish guitar and loved him. He even sent a CD of his music after the wedding as a thank you for booking him.
Thanks everyone. Anyone used a live band that played a diverse collection? Any photographer recommendations?
I think Chris Story can play just about anything. We booked him for his Country music. He's played for Red McComb's Birthday bash and Donald Trump's Miss America pageant if I remember correctly. For a photographer, we would highly recommend Elan Imaging. http://elanimaging.com/ Teresa is great! She is very personable as well as professional. She did my daughter's engagement pictures and they were fantastic. I am a photographer and I looked at a lot of photographers in San Antonio. Her lighting and color is fantastic.
I would HIGHLY recommend Mark as a photographer! http://www.mtdigphoto.com/
I have truly enjoyed working with him and his work is outstanding. He did our engagement pics and they were professional and so 'us.' He is doing my bridals, the rehearsal dinner, and the entire day for us this summer. I could seriously go on and on about him! This was an area I was willing to splurge on because the pictures last a life time, but with Mark, not only am I getting exactly what we wanted...excellent work, professional, fun, personable, etc., he is reasonable on the bank account! Please let me know if anyone needs further help...love it!
Thanks for the nice review. I am really looking forward to Kadie's wedding. It is going to be Beautiful!
Hope all your wedding plans are coming together for you. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to help.
Have a great day!
Anyone have any suggestions for hair and makeup, preferrably on location.
For flowers:Botanica or Pizzini. For band: Groove City Band
