It often takes quite a few people to pull off the beautiful wedding days you see. Because of this, we all have the pleasure of working with countless vendors each and every year. But, every once in a while, you connect with one in a way that leaves you anxiously awaiting the next time you’re able to work together.
From bridal boutiques, to florists, to coordinators, videographers, and hair stylists – these are a few of my favorite vendors based in and around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
