Vendor Spotlight: Grand Event Lighting

As I often say, a great planner is only as good as the vendors they work with. I have known Tom and Vanessa for twelve years and have watched both their family and businesses grow along with mine. I always receive great service and they often bend over backwards to ensure my events are successful. From gorgeous tents, beautiful rentals, to modern furniture and lovely lighting, they are always my go-to companies. Take a peek at just a few photos from our events together over the years.

Vendor Spotlight: Two Cooks Catering

“Wow!” is always my first response when tasting Russ and Heather’s food. That’s why I am pleased to spotlight them for the month of August!

There are many facets to being a brilliant catering company. Two Cooks has them all…starting with delicious food, prepared with local and fresh ingredients (they actually have local farmers grow particular kinds of lettuce for my upcoming weddings!). As well as being a great chef, Russ is a very talented baker as well. Their food is always presented simply and beautifully, competitively priced, served by competent and friendly servers, and followed up by great customer service!

Check out the delicious images below from our Great Gatsby photo shoot that they catered, which is now featured on Style Me Pretty!

As a wedding designer, of course I strive to create the most gorgeous wedding aesthetically but equally important to me is customizing a menu that reflects who you are, where your wedding is taking place, and the family and friends surrounding you. I am so pleased that Two Cooks feels the same. They have truly mastered creating a one of a kind menu.
Thank you Russ and Heather for all of your hard work. It is my pleasure to continue to recommend you to all my brides. I adore you….and your cuisine!

Mike and his adorable, Rachel!

I really feel like he is a genius in many ways. His generous spirit and thriving talent makes him a great colleague, and even better photographer.

So happy to have Mike photograph my clients, Jacqueline and Matt! We are excited for their seaside 7/7 wedding!

Mike also took part in our Great Gatsby stylized shoot in May. I look forward to sharing our images from our Great Gatsby shoot with you soon. He captured the warm opulence of the roaring 20’s perfectly, collecting detailed shots of my design and beautiful portraits of our sun kissed models, Danny and Trea. They turned out as gorgeous as they sound!

Only Mike could capture this amazing shot from a past wedding of ours. Take a look at the reception in full swing and that lighting!

Stay tuned for the posting of our Great Gatsby images, but until then to see more of Mike’s stunning work visit, mikelarson.com
