I am sure that you have probably found the vendors you are looking for, if not let me know!
I too am planning a wedding in santa cruz and would love to know if you found any great vendors that are budget conscious (we too are limited).
Thanks for the help and I am happy to forward anything that I come up with:)
Dave Medal (lives in SF but grew up in SCruz) is a great choice. :)
