the best of the best

we can't thank the people that helped with our wedding enough. like I said in the previous post we had an amazing crew.

fernando- who makes the best al pastor tacos hands down. he is available for parties and works out of a little convenience store in pasadena ca. (909) 873-0703, cell (626) 278-6327. 1135 n. summit ave. pasadena ca 91103. he was a lucky find.

the fry girls- our guests are still talking about the mini donuts we had as dessert. I only wish I had eaten more!!! thanks for all your deliciousness.

el gallo giro- best horchata in orange county. we bought a little too much...but thanks to rob and cori for picking it up.

summit catering- pam was a dream to work with and did a great job supplying us with salads, drinks and mac n cheese for the kiddos. also they worked hand in hand with the rentals which helped a lot!

signature party rentals- they delivered to the sand, were timely and had competitive rates.

jonathan canlas- photographed our wedding and took loads of stress off me. I know I will have fantastic wedding images and that was one of the most important things for us. jon, we love you man. thanks for being so easy to work with and for making all those" you're going to die when you see these" expressions.

leo patrone- photographer who rocked our our whole wedding day with a holga camera. Thank you so much for coming along and taking such amazingly artistic photographs. we love them!

jared purrington- our good friend and illustrator who created the masterpiece we used as our invitation. he creates some of our favorite art. thanks purr. bear hug.

penelope's- penny, made my amazing layered skirt that flounced around the wedding. she doesn't have a website yet, but is located in SLC and does beautiful work. 801-582-5010. 1670 e 1300 s, salt lake city ut 84105.

mom- for staying up till the wee hours of the night sewing so that I had a top to wear with my skirt. I was stressed and anxious and you were calm and agreeable. thanks for loving me and knowing how to sew. what will my daughters do?! I better take some classes.

oc wholesale flowers- this is a wholesale shop (you have to have a business license to purchase flowers through them), who made my flower dreams come true...for next to nothing!! thank you natalie for helping me pick put the perfect flowers. I wish I lived closer so I could buy bundles of fresh flowers weekly.

the beach house- this location is private and not available to rent, but I had to give a shout out to paul and missy for letting us use it. all we both ever wanted was a party on the beach, and because of you we got it.

there are loads of others to thank.....friends who helped with set up, lights, smore's, the fire, cleanup, music, salsa, parking, friends and family poster, showers, bachelor party, driving, our parents generosity...

oh, and we have to thank the weather. a sunny, warm day in the middle of a rain week?...amazing.

If anyone has any questions about any of the people we hired or wants more information please let us know. we highly recommend all of them.
