Vendor Love is about some of the amazing vendors I had/have the pleasure to work with at weddings and events, so we definitely share a common story, a common day where we have worked together to make a couple’s dream come true. I want to get to know more of these amazing professionals, and on top of it, I want to make sure my couples know about them too and recommend them all the way (I want them to have the best out of the best for the day)!!! On this episode, I had the honor to chat with  DJ Brian Crow, the Owner of Crow Entertainment and DJ Ricky G, who is a full-time DJ with this amazing company!

They went above and beyond. Could we do it without a DJ table, of course.

Next on your list is to ensure that the bride gets dressed Certainly it's her special day and she will need all the attention to look perfect and while she gets set; you might have the photographer document your mom [...]
