Make-Up and Hair by Kat – Kat is the sweetest and she did an absolutely excellent job for Alice and her girls for Alice & Dan’s wedding. I cannot say enough good things – she ran on time, did a stunning job, and was a pleasure to spend time with. Contact: kmtinney (at) gmail.com (e-mail preferred) or 707-360-8436. Highly recommend!
Make Up by Adele (Bay Area, Monterey/Carmel) – Adele did make up for Leigh Ann’s wedding. She’s sweet, easy to work with, on time, and fantastic at what she does.

She’s low maintenance, easy to work with, and fun to have around on your wedding day. Highly recommend!

Heart of Gold DJs (Bay Area) – These ladies are the bees knees! Seriously. If you want rad ladies who know how to party, have excellent music taste, and can get the dance floor poppin’, pick them! Also, ladies who DJ? Uhm, yesss.
Seafoam Films – Aparajita and Jawahar’s wedding. Shannon is the sweetest and super fun and easy to work with. She’s big into the outdoors and has a laid back style. Her films are playful, full of character, and super fun. She really personalizes each film to each couple. Love her!
Cine Matt – Created a film for Nick & Meredith’s San Francisco wedding. Matt is the real deal! He creates truly cinematic films that read more as love stories and fairy tale endings than “just” capturing the wedding day. He’s more involved and may ask you to “do over” a few moments during the day to make sure he has the perfect shot or a few perfect shots.
Thomas Hughes Films – Priya & Dave, Lauren & Travis, Kathleen & Jake. If you’re looking for a good, straightforward film, this team is it! They don’t get crazy with the storytelling or editing aspect, but you can expect a really high quality record of your wedding day from them. Thomas has a handful of talented videographers and then he takes care of all the editing and post himself. This choice is a little more budget friendly than the other options.

Off the Beaten Path Weddings – Event planning & coordination for Natalie & Michael’s Napa Valley Wedding. This was SUCH a stunning day and executed flawlessly by this team. I cannot recommend them enough!
