Hi all - My fiance and I were engaged in Sonoma in May 2008 and are planning to make a trip out there next month to start the search for venues. We have considered a coordinator, too, but just don't know where to start. As you can tell, we're a little overwhelmed!
Can anyone suggest coordinators and/or vendors who will do good work while understanding what we can/can't afford? While they don't need to have experience w/ gay weddings, they've got to be 100% comfortable - and experience would be a plus :)
Congrats on your engagement! We are getting married at Cornerstone Gardens. I'll recommend Mary Phan or www.verymerryevents.com as a coordinator. She is a joy to work with and will certainly consider your budget when suggesting vendors.
You may already have some great recommendations, but I have heard wonderful things about Traci Stuteville – firstname.lastname@example.org Office: 707-255-9262. Have a great time! I got married in Napa and have shot lots of weddings in Sonoma- one of my favorite places to shoot- and be! Don't overlook Yountville, too, for wonderful restaurants and gathering spots!
