Vendors are a Bride's Best Friend, Part 2.

Updated: Feb 17, 2019

A few months ago, I listed out a large group of wedding vendors {that I like to call Friendors} that I've worked with and enjoy working with! When it comes to planning your wedding, there are A LOT of moving pieces. Trust me, I've been there! From the venue, to the photographer, to the florist, to the caterer, to the dress, the DJ, the baker, the invitations, the signage, the officiant, the videographer... the list goes on and on. Yes, that is a lot to take in. So here I am again, with a few more amazing vendors for you to consider when planning your dream wedding!


Photographers & Videographers

Atlas + Emily DeFay

I've had the pleasure of working alongside Atlas and Emily at a magical winter styled shoot at Heavenly Farms in Myakka City, Florida! They are an eclectic couple with a sultry photo and video style that is full of life and warm tones. Don't ask them if The Office or Parks and Rec is better than the other, because they definitely won't agree.

Christina Seifert

Christina is a Colorado based photographer that loves adventure, the outdoors, and her sweet Siberian husky Kodak. She specializes in wedding, elopement and lifestyle photography. Christina and I went to high school together and she has the biggest heart! I'm so excited that she will be photographing my brother and soon-to-be sister in law's wedding in 2020!

Jontel Chere

Jontel is a witty, eclectic and fun-loving photographer based out of Southwest Florida. Her photos are always so warm and buttery, you just want to eat them up! She specializes in weddings, elopements, and portraits and will definitely travel for ya!


As mentioned up with Freehearted Film Co., I've had the pleasure to work with Heavenly Farms and boy is it a beautiful venue! The Heavenly Farms Wedding destination offers a very special venue for your very special day. Located in the heart of Myakka City, Florida, you’re treated to an elegant wooded setting and breath-taking grounds, making it the perfect intimate reception and ceremony site for your big day. This venue provides everything you need for the perfect event of your dreams. From warm waffles and fresh fruit for the morning-of brunch, to your unforgettable reception of dancing the night away, Heavenly Farms has it all.


Lisa Burford

Lisa is an imaginative baker with a knack for making gorgeous cakes! Residing in Trinity, Florida she loves to sculpture different elements and caricatures. Her cakes are as tasty as they are beautiful! She can be sure to make your sugary dreams come to life.

Morgan specializes in creating beautiful, delicious landscapes that become the focal point of your event. They offer made from scratch buttercream cakes, custom decorated cookies, cupcakes, gluten-free options and more! They take pride in perfection and Morgan bakes, decorates and executes the set up of each event. She designs the layout and provides all display stands, plates and decor that are all in line with bringing your vision to life. 

Event Rentals

Kristin Rose

From sparkle to ruffle to lace and everything in between, Kate Ryan Event Rentals specializes in providing a vast selection of specialty event rentals and we are continually adding to their growing collections! I've had the pleasure of working alongside Kristin at a styled photo shoot down at Fort Desoto State Park. The chairs, linens, and decor she brought really set the scene!


I hope this helps you {or your best friend or your sister or someone} out with the planning of your wedding day! Whether here in Tampa Bay, Central Florida or across the country in Colorado, these vendors are amazing in their own unique way and want to make sure your wedding is the literal best day ever!

Until next time, cheers! 🍾
