Episode 001: The Importance of the Vendor Team
Featuring Josh Staley Productions & Michelle Joy Photography
When it comes to planning the perfect wedding day, there's nothing more important than your vendor team. Your vendor team is comprised of all the individuals you've hired to make your wedding day happen-- your planner, photographer, DJ/band, caterer, florist, and everyone in between. Every vendor has a role to play, a piece of the puzzle that they are responsible for, and if one person drops the ball, the mistake can ripple throughout your entire wedding day experience.
As a husband and wife team who work in two different arenas of your wedding day, we are hyper-aware of the importance of one specific relationship: the photographer and the DJ. Especially once your reception starts, the DJ will be the vendor leading the charge and turning your guests' attention to every special event. Your photographer is responsible for capturing all those events in the most beautiful way possible, and good communication between the two of them can make all the difference in both your wedding photos and guest experience!
Building the perfect vendor team of individuals who understand your vision is the best gift you can give yourself when it comes to your wedding day! You want to hire professionals who are not only willing to bend over backwards to make sure your wedding day goes off without a hitch, but also have the professional experience to deal with potential problems in the most effective way. A great vendor is flexible, caring, and loves their job.
