Folks I dig to help you out!
Here is a list of my favorite vendors. Tell them I sent you because
sometimes they will give you deals! I don’t get anything from passing these
names on to you except good karma.
Zoe Make up artist
(super high end and will do more cutting edge
stuff. Love her!)
Boston Bridal Lounge

Rose Fortuna AKA Rosie Cheeks:
I’ve worked with Rose and I dig her work.

Grace Mahoney at Blushing Brides

Hair in the Boston area
Darren Le is a sculptor with hair. No joke. I just worked with him and was
Danielle is the best of the best! She is located in Watertown and does
private sessions or even full bridal packages with your bridal party. Can’t
afford private, she does semi private sessions with other “diehards” at
various times throughout the day in her studio. Tell her I sent you.
Jim Altieri’s Vintage Cinema (he’s in CT but he does travel and it worth
the $) He has been featured on Style Me Pretty and knows his stuff
Doug Welch (my first choice)
If you want a DJ that is going to make your wedding guest move all night
and feel like they are at a kick ass club, Doug is my NUMBER ONE
CHOICE. He was a huge club DJ for years as well as doing weddings. He
can actually beat mix, which means he won’t kill a song in the middle of it
playing. Actually you won’t even know when one song ends and the other
begins. He doesn’t talk a lot unless you want him too. Can bring a light
show as well.
his email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
He also sings his ass off for you during dinner, but knows his music and get
the crowd up and moving quick! I can’t recommend him enough!
Ken Duquette’s Champagne Toast
The website is a little cheesy but I swear this guy had the dance floor
PACKED from start to finish!
Laser hair removal, facials and electrolysis
She is located in Brookline and I’m a client. Pain free and works really fast.
Ok, so I debated whether or not to list this but what the hell. No one is
vainer than me and I even retouched my birth photos.
So here goes…
Botox and other medical cosmetic things
Laura Kimberly of Lilly LA
Located in Newton, Laura is discrete, confidential and worth it. That’s all
I’m gonna say about that. (mention me and there could be a discount) She
does chemical peels too. Big discounts for all if you get your entire wedding
party involoved in some way. She can also come directly to your house and even throw a party, if you know what I mean. :-)
Limos and fun transportation
224 Calvary St
Waltham MA 02453-8366
Sarah Trainor Designs
Caterers and cakes!
Ok, they are a client but I have known Sarah for years and I LOVE her
cupcakes. She does wedding cupcake towers and has flavors for every taste.
Straight and simple or cupcakes with booze, they will keep your guests
happy and talking!
Davis Square 378 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA
Make sure to talk to Sarah and tell her I sent you!
If you want a cake that is not only a work of art, but so yummy you won’t be
able to stand it, THIS place is for you. Their chocolate mouse filling will
blow your mind.
32 Wood Road, Braintree, MA 02184
9 at home
If you have a little cash to blow, Barbara Lynch is the queen of the scene
when it comes to food in Boston.
Ana Sortun and Oleana Restaurant
Even though it doesn’t mention catering on their website, they will do it.
Ana Sortun is not only one of my favorite chefs on earth (I ate there while I
was in labor but didn’t want to go to the hospital until I was done my
dinner…I SWEAR), but she is also my husband’s first mentor. (He is a
chef) If you are having a small wedding, you may even want to consider
having your entire event at her restaurant. Not for the timid but a must for
It’s classic, fresh and yummy servicing the New England area. Very cool
Catering in the Berkshires and beyond
Nancy Thomas is the reason the Berkshire region has a restaurant scene.
She actually brought it there. (I actually know her from in days in
Philadelphia and she is the coolest woman I know) Her company thrives on
local and she supports and uses the local farmers in the region before going
elsewhere for anything on your plate.
