Planning a Clovis Wedding & Need Help! :)

Hello all,

I currently live in Santa Clarita CA, but my Fiancé Ted and I are trying to plan a wedding in the backyard of our Clovis, CA house.

Since I'm not from the area and not able to make it up there often, I don't have a lot of time to run around and meet vendors, so your suggestions are needed! I've been to one Central Valley Bridal Fair and that helped a little, but I was really... hoping for your recommendations.

I have nothing but a dress, location and May 26th 2012 wedding date, so I need to get busy!

Thanks for your help,
Gina

    Florist- Marriah at Simply Flowers.  Her website is www.fresnoflowershop.com She did two of my friends' weddings and is doing my wedding next week.

    Photographer- Dave Barrios at Creative Captures.  His website is www.creativecaptures.net. He has already done our e-pics and did awesome.

    DJ- We are using Haro Entertainment.  Their website is www.haroent.com. My friend used them for her June wedding and she said the dance floor was never empty.  Their packages are very reasonable and they also have a photo booth package.

    Cake- I don't know what your budget is but Frosted Cakery in the tower district makes gorgeous cakes.  Their website is www.frostedcakery.com.

    HTH. Congratulations and good luck!
