Vendor Recommendations

I am getting married at Camden Yards in March 2014. This is a 2nd wedding for both my fiancee and I so we are paying for it ourselves and trying to stay within a budget.  I am not from the Baltimore area so I have no idea about vendors.  Any (reasonably priced) photographers, bakeries, florist, and dj's that you can recommend would be appreciated!

    Our photographer is Maria Linz and so far we LOVE her!!!  She has another photographer working with her, Helen, who's more traditional and about $500 less.  Also, our DJ is Lasting Impressions and they actually have a DJ/limo business and if you book them as a DJ you get a 10 person limo INCLUDED!

  • Bradley Images will give you one photographer for 11 hours, prints, and an engagement session for $2,500. I shopped like crazy for photographers and he was by far the best deal AND the best recommended. I work in Pikesville and he is used a LOT there for Jewish weddings, all of them gorgeous. 

    Absolute Entertainment puts on a great show; the DJ I'll be using, Jacob, did two of my neighbors weddings and people are still raving about him a year later. If you're getting married in a less popular month (like I'm getting married in August), Absolute Entertainment also has special deals. I have no idea how popular March might be.

    Florist: I'm deciding between Shelly's Blossom Shop and Flowers by Audrey. Shelly is a phenomenal florist who cares about all of her clients and will definitely work with you. She is reasonably priced. Flowers by Audrey works out of home, so that saves her a LOT of money, and thus saves you a LOT of money. I'm seeing her today to look at her arrangements.

    ALSO. A warning about Camden Yards. Make sure your gift box is very well designed or guarded; because the way the rooms are set up, the gifts may be in a place away from everyone else. My cousin and his wife were robbed at their wedding.

    My fiance is currently building a box with a padlock (that we will discreetly hide) for envelopes. Weddings are lovely and bring out the best in people, but also the worst in other people. (Sorry to end on a down note.)

    I WILL say that the Camden Yards wedding was a blast! 
  • Interesting about the cards. I am inviting someone to a wedding that makes me nervous could possibly do something like that. How will you discretely make a pad lock?

  • We're having the table up against the wall with the padlock painted and facing the wall, so unless someone is super nosy (which, in their case, serves them right; HA, we preemptively got you!), no one will notice. The box is a wooden box that he is painting in our colors.
