Vendors

Assembling a talented, experienced team of professional wedding vendors is an essential part of organizing a smooth, low-stress wedding celebration. Your officiant, Photographer,  DJ or live entertainment, florist, caterer, hair stylist and makeup artist are all essential members of your team of professional wedding vendors. For this reason, it’s very important to do your research and choose vendors whose personality and style will be a good fit for your wedding.  Below is my personal list of favorites based on my experience with them.  If you choose to call them PLEASE tell them Kelly with Amor Ceremonies referred you!

The Photographer

Finding a Photographer is as important as finding an Officiant that you click with.   And I know that searching for a talented and reputable wedding photographer within your budget can be frustrating.  My personal favorite is  Roy Ricci of Ricci Photography, he specializes in shooting a creative blend of photo-journalistic  traditional, contemporary and artistic photography for each and every wedding.  Roy is  handpicked for his friendly personality, creative style and  professional equipment. Roy can be reached at 505-250-1113 or  http://www.ricciphotography.net/

The DJ

Selecting a great DJ is absolutely crucial to the success of your wedding reception. Not only does the DJ keep the music flowing, they will work with you to create a schedule of events that will keep you and your guests entertained. It’s too easy for a reception too loose momentum without the planning and enthusiasm a professional DJ provides. The last thing you want is for your party to deflate, but that’s precisely what will happen if you opt for the “iPod DJ”. The best, most flexible Albuquerque DJ we have worked with is Too Hot to Stop. They have been in business for 23 years and know exactly what it takes to make your wedding reception a success. They can be reached at 505-480-4601 or http://toohottostop.com/index.html

The Florist

Finding a talented florist is not only contributes to the beauty and ambiance of your ceremony and reception, it helps make your wedding photos even more spectacular. Nothing makes the bride look even more beautiful or dresses up a plain hotel ballroom like some artfully arranged flowers.
