Our Vendors Rock

After spending a super busy day at the mall, Mr. S and I had crossed many things off our list.  His suit is finally getting altered.  He, thankfully, now has a dress shirt and snazzy shoes.  We both got new bathing suits for the honeymoon and I found a perfect bra (hopefully).  Whew!  After a long day at the crowded mall, we were both feeling exhausted and decided to go back to my apartment to watch a Redbox.  Yes, unfortunately this is also secret code for “get my craft on.”  Blah, not the most exciting evening.

Anywho, I checked my mail as we pulled up and inside was such an unexpected surprise that I just had to share:


In case the text is too small, it says:

Hey you two!

We cannot believe how close the big day is getting and we can’t WAIT to see you guys! It’s no secret that the month leading up to a wedding can be pretty stressful, so we’re sending a mini date your way. Go have a coffee or a cake pop, enjoy some time together, and for just an hour or two don’t talk seating charts or schedules.

Love and laughs

(and see you soon)

Sarah & Ben

Sarah & Ben are our FABULOUS photographers. As you can see, they included a gift card to Starbucks. How cute are they? Like seriously…what vendor does this? This card just reiterated for about the 100th time why we chose to work with Sarah & Ben. Not because they send us gift cards, but because they get it. They know that right now, Mr. S and I are stressed to the max preparing for this wedding and Sarah and Ben wanted to help alleviate some of that stress. These two are exactly who I want up in my face snapping pictures on our wedding day because they crack us up and calm us down. Cheers to awesome vendors who are invested in us as a couple. And yes, they even take amazing pictures. :)

I’m going to pop out and grab some Starbucks with my loverboy. I think all you other spring brides should do the same! It is so easy to get caught up in the wedding chaos. Thank you, Sarah and Ben, for helping us cherish our relationship.

Who else has amazing vendors who go above and beyond??

    I had to double check your location because I am in the process of finding a photographer and this was such an awesome, thoughtful gesture. Want to find a photog just like this! Too bad I’m in the Northeast :(

    Our photographers sent us a little mini flip calendar for Christmas the year of our wedding. They used our photographs from both the engagement session and the wedding, and they even put a little heart around our wedding date. We had already had our wedding, paid our bills, but that little touch was a great way to end the year. We had already suggested them to everyone we knew getting married in the Chicagoland area, and I will continue to do so forever 😀 They are iluvphoto in case anyone is interested!
