Sage Wedding Pros

March 18, 2010

I recently stumbled upon the Sage Wedding Pros blog and they were doing a series of posts on lessons for new wedding vendors:

Totally helpful and relevant. Some of the lessons overlap, like those related to networking and being yourself/finding your voice, but others were more nuanced like finding a reliable printer (for invitation designers) and the pricing-balancing-act (for planners).

The Sage Wedding Pros blog also regularly feature easy-to-read, to-the-point “Insider to Insider” interviews with some of the top vendors in the wedding world, like Nancy Liu Chinfloral extraordinaire, Stephanie Frazier Grimm of Couture Parties who I met briefly at Wedding 360 earlier this week, Jasmine Star the brilliant photographer, Jaimi Brooks of Fiore Beauty, and more!

I love, love the business side of weddings and pouring over a year’s worth of Sage Wedding Pros archives has been educational and thought-provoking. There is so much to learn… exciting!!

This is a BEAUTIFUL wedding shot by Jasmine Star and then published and lauded multiple times. I recently started looking at wedding planner blogs and landed at JL Designs… and look what I found, more beautiful wedding with benches! BENCHES! Okay sorry, this is about dessert.

Apparently this Carissa is self-proclaimed (or self-blogged) “die hard sweet-tooth” and she’s not kidding! Beautiful desserts from their wedding done by a combination of their caterer, Vanilla Bakeshop, and a central California bakery, The Dotted Apron.

Yum, yum, yum.

Mini peach pies- so beautifully and carefully made! Everything mini is.

Milk shooters with home-made chocolate chip cookies

Brownie pops

Cinnamon sugar donut holes

Baby banana splits!!! This is adorable.

I can’t imagine trying to eat all of this in one day, but I bet I could try…
