Vendor Poll!

So, there have been a lot of intros lately, and a lot of us are married now and have vendor reviews. So, I figured it might be time for a vendor poll to give all the new people some ideas. Feel free to add any vendors I forgot, and link to your vendor reviews/bios if you have them!Ceremony and Reception Venues: Officiant: Photographer: Videographer: Florist: DJ or band: DOC: Hair stylist: Makeup Artist: Transportation: Room blocks: Tuxes: Dress shops: Cake:

    Ceremony and Reception Venues: Belle Mer - we are in the Island House- its absolutely stunning, has a water view, and beautiful view of the Newport Bridge. The venue is very modern, and chic.Officiant: Victoria Burdick - she has been so sweet to chat with and comes highly recommended on here from past girls that have used her.Photographer: Snap! Photography- I am working with Mariah and she is awesome... I know that she is the perfect fit for our wedding day- great communication and just FUN! Snap photos are AMAZING- check them out at www.snapri.com Videographer: Mike Picard- We are not having a videographer but if we were, we would book with Mike for sure.Florist: Flowers By Semia .... incredible workDJ: Suzanne at Moondance- heard nothing but good things about not only Moondance DJ but Suzanne as well- looking forward in working with herDOC: Colleen Kimmel at Classic Weddings- Colleen has been nothing short of fantastic to work with so far. I am planning my wedding from Florida so Colleen has been a huge help and I know she will take care of everything the day of so I have nothing to worry about. She also comes very highly on this board from other girls that have used her.Hair stylist: Gina Joubert- will travel to you for an additional fee- she is out of Shrewsbury, MAMakeup Artist: Kristin Greene- has a 3 person min. for bridal/bridal party makeup and will travel to youTransportation: Viking Tours/Newport Trolley- we are using a trolley to shuttle the us and the bridal party around Newport for photos and then it will pick up/drop off guests to/from the hotel and Belle MerRoom blocks: Newport wedding- MIDDLETOWN hotels is the way to go for room blocks- its cheaper, not a far distance from Newport, and you won't get hit with 2 night minimums that most Newport hotels are going to hit you with on the weekendTuxes:  Carl Anthony TuxAll Paper ( invites, STDs, placecards, programs, etc.): Designs by Sofia- she does amazing work, and is reasonably priced !Cake: Diane's DelectablesUplighting: Ormonde Productions Dress Shops ( Bridesmaids): Flair Brides Maids and Aria- located on Newbury St in BostonBoudior Photos: Melissa Robotti Ceremony Musicians: check out www.gigmasters.com -this is how we found our string trio. You can search by genre, price, location, listen to music samples, etc. They response time is pretty quick as well. I do recommend not booking directly through gigmasters as you have to pay an additional fee, so its best to contact the musician directly after you have gotten all their info off the site, etc.Rehearsal Dinner ( Newport area ): Atlantic Beach Club- we are going the New England Style Lobster Bake, and cannot wait for this. I have heard many good things about the ABC not only for rehearsal dinners ( food/service ) but also for their weddings as well... you also get amazing views of the ocean HTH !!  Happy Planning :o)
