2018 was one for the books! We had the opportunity to attend 50 weddings with our vintage camper photo booths and along the way met some pretty rad vendors across Northern California. If only we had gone to that many weddings before planning ours, but hey, at least we get to pass down this new found knowledge to you. Here is a list we have compiled of vendors who are sure to rock your wedding day.
Sacramento: The Delta Diamond Farm
Rustic yet Elegant The Delta Diamond is located in Isleton, just a short drive from Sacramento, the Central Valley or the San Francisco Bay Area. The Delta Diamond is on the Sacramento Delta and is a perfect place to beat the heat of the Sacramento Valley.
Woodland : Taber Ranch
Taber Ranch is located on a 500-acre working ranch in the scenic Capay Valley. The site is surrounded by rolling hills, grapevines, olive and almond orchards providing a spectacular background for your wedding or special event. Their Wedding Hill plateau provides a panoramic view of the valley. The lawn area overlooks a pond filled with colorful Koi and our 90 year old rustic, but elegant barn.
Truckee: Mitchell’s Meadows
Mitchell’s Meadows has 80 acres of land completely surrounded by National Forest. Their three large meadows allow panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and picturesque streams amble through the property.
Bay Area : Piedmont Community Hall
Azaleas and camellias provide splashes of color near the circular landscaped plaza in front of the hall. Redwoods and flowering cherry trees shade portions of the plaza, and behind the building a stream and more trees complete the circle of greenery.
Healdsburg: Soda Rock Winery
Located in the gorgeous Alexander Valley, Soda Rock Winery is sure to exceed expectations for those planning a wine country wedding or special event. They offer a picturesque setting with both indoor and outdoor spaces which can accommodate your celebration year round with vineyard views.
Dot Dash officially started Summer of 2016, but it's roots go back. Joel and Drew, the creators of Dot Dash Productions, met sophomore year of high school. Since the beginning, the two shared a passion for creating. Creating anything. Through the years, this passion has lead to a slew of off-the-wall projects, and a few Great ones. Dot Dash is one of the Greats. Dot Dash is a one-stop-shop for modern cinematic film, digital and analog photography.
“I am a wife, mother, and dream chaser. I will always desire photographing real life and emotion over posed and staged any day. I document stories of love and celebrate the beauty in the mundane. My lil family and I currently live in a small beach town on California's Central Coast, chasing after sunsets, amazing food, and taking as many adventures together as possible.”
“I LOVE weddings. I love weddings like a hipster loves kombucha, because getting married is FUN. My ultimate goal as a photographer is to timelessly tell your beautiful and authentic love story.”
Wedding Planning + Day of Coordination
“I have been styling events and coordinating Weddings for years now and I’ve turned my passion into a career. I love what I do and find joy in every part of the process. My goal is to take away all of your stress and allow you and your loved ones to enjoy your event and take in the special memories. My style is classic and timeless. I love floral design, vintage glassware, collecting unique cake plates, mixing rustic barnwood with feminine details, and an urban chic style. This doesn’t limit me to what I can do for you, I love challenging myself, trying new things, and more importantly making an event totally describe YOU. "
“ My Style, Let’s talk about that! There’s a lot of branding going on out there. I get it. It works. But honestly, it’s a real struggle for me to define my creative style. Do I have to pick? Do I really have to limit myself? Put your hands up if you feel that variety is the spice of life!! I honestly believe that ANY style can be tasteful and classy if done right. I appreciate the modern bride who wants clean lines and splashes of art, the romantic bride who envisions soft, feminine textiles & whispy florals, the cowgirl (love me some country music btw) who wants to just keep it real and bring the family together for some good food and line dancing, to the bride who wants to pull in her cultural background with the food, decor and feel of her native land. (Better yet, let’s travel to your country for your special day!- I just renewed my passport) My point is this > every. single. style brings me joy. And to help you develop your vision is so exciting for me!! “
Adventurous Elopements + Bad Ass Weddings
“ I'm a Wisconsin-born, California-living gal and it's top priority for me to provide exceptional service to my clients as we embark on this planning journey together. Whether we are creating your wedding from top to bottom, searching for a venue, conspiring to elope on a mountaintop, or tasting cakes and steaks (and wine), I am dedicated to curating the perfect party for you and your guests while actually enjoying the planning experience!
I've got an education in interior architecture and design as well as a professional background in event production for a major music venue. I'm tough, I'm quick on my feet and I get the job done.
When I'm not hanging with my clients, you can find me hanging with my pup, Chuck, on the beach, hiking in the Oakland Hills, skiing, surfing, or scuba diving. I love to cook, bake, play with flowers, and I'm a painter and a sewer. Basically, if Martha Stewart and James Bond had a kid, I'd be that kid.”
“At Ash + Oak we hand-pick all of our flowers from the San Francisco flower market using the freshest flowers each season has to offer. We do not import any flowers as each season has its own beautiful flowers to choose from. All of our arrangements are custom designed to fit your vision.”
San Francisco-based floral designer and lover of all blooms + fun

“I am a Creative Stylist. I love, love, love showcasing ordinary things in unexpected ways to elevate the atmosphere. Nothing elevates the atmosphere like a jaw dropping, larger than life balloon with a dazzling hand made tail cascading down!
I never expected to fall head-over-heels in love with giant balloons! I fell hard while styling my daughter’s Sweet Sixteen Bash. Inspired by the beautiful, modern trends, I rented some helium, bought some balloons, gifted them to friends and Lifted Balloons was born.
Since I opened up shop in July, 2016, I've expanded offerings to include swoon worthy custom garland, modern balloon architectural pieces, balloons and blooms, exterior installations, rentable photo backdrop fixtures, and full service design for your event. Intimate gatherings to grand scale events, there isn’t an event too small or too big. I am over-the-moon delighted to create for you!”
