As I get (hopefully) closer to my new wedding date, I think back over the last 2 years and all the planning involved. I think about how excited I was to book my first vendor, after we had secured our venue. It took us about 2 months to find a venue and book a date, but in that time, I started shopping around for our photographers, as they were THE #1 most important vendor to me. I found a husband and wife team whose pictures called to me in a way that the other photographers I found did not. While we did meet with 3 different photography teams, the husband and wife team (although over-budget) were the ones we hired. I was so freaking excited about how amazing our wedding pictures were going to be! Now, with Plan C potentially occurring, I'm even more excited that I booked them because I know they'll do such an epic job in our potential elopement location. Which vendor was your first that you booked after your venue? Was their role the most important to you or did you just happen to get the contract locked in before others? Did you get your first choice or did you have to keep shopping around?
And just because my photographers are freaking rock stars, here's a shameless plug: Holding & Co Photography
