Venues,Vendors & Helpful Links
I do want to take a second to explain a couple things on this page.. First these are just my opinions, everyone has different tastes and styles. I would love to put everyone on here and I probably should but I just wanted to give some of the ones credit that I have worked with over the years that I have seen go above and beyond the call of duty. I'm sure there are venues and vendors not on this page and its nothing personal at all. Again these are some of my own opinions, and a mixture of many bridal picks that I have seen on my paper work over the years. Lawrence has lots of other great venues and vendors so be sure to shop around and use your own due diligence.
