Venue- Croatian American Cultural Center

I am so excited to be getting married at this venue. Words cannot describe just how gorgeous it is, but what we (and others in the Sacramento wedding industry) like to call it is "Sacramento's hidden gem." It is the ideal wedding spot for Christopher and me.  I'm not gonna lie, when we pulled into the parking lot I was thinking "no, this can't be it." But as soon as we entered the gates and walked into the courtyard I was sold. Then we walked inside the hall and we knew we had found the place. So far, Mike, the events coordinator, has made some great recommendations.

Photography- Justin Buettner Photography

We actually won engagement pictures with Justin a few days after we decided to book him to be our photographer. We absolutely love our engagement pictures and are showing them off like crazy. You can see some of them under "Christopher and Me".

DJ-Exquisite Entertainment and DJ Service

We met with Sonny from Exquisite Entertainment and immediately knew that we wanted him to be our DJ. He had amazing ideas for our wedding that we cannot wait to implement and we look forward to the time that we'll be working with him. Once again, another vendor that Chris was highly involved in, which made me that much more excited for the wedding. 

Flowers- Party Petals

A lot of Sacramento knotties recommended Brandi from Party Petals and I must say, so far it has been great working with her. Even Chris is excited about our wedding flowers. 

Dress- De La Rosa's Bridal

Working with Bic from De La Rosa's Bridal has been a joy so far. She has been extremely helpful and very courteous. She has great customer service skills and never pressured me about purchasing a dress. In fact, the dress I chose I could have purchased online but decided not to purely because Bic was so sweet and helpful. I look forward to working with her again when we are picking out my bridesmaids dresses and when my dress comes in.


We are so excited to be using Ettore's as our cake vendor. Chris and I were astounded by the plethora of options that they gave us during our cake tasting. Lisa was also very sweet and seems like she with be great to work with. We ended up getting 3 different flavors and two 1/2 sheet cakes.
