If you're anything like me, you prefer to hire people that come highly recommended from folks who have worked with them before.  I've compiled a list of fellow vendors so you can feel confident in hiring businesses that are reliable and top-notch.

Shannon Joy is a llama mama, through and through.  You can have festive llamas at your wedding (therapy animals by day, party animals by night!) or even have your wedding at their property!

You can rent goats to be an activity for your celebration, or have them be the ring bearers!

If you're a plus size bride, the Pretty Pear is amazing.  They focus on body positivity, and have many wedding planning resources on their site as well.

DJ Switch

I've worked with DJ Switch at the PDXpelliarmus Yule Ball in 2023.  He had an amazing selection of whimsical and nerdy music that kept everyone dancing the entire party! 

DJ Dream Prashant

Amazing Bollywood dance music that will get EVERYONE on the dancefloor.  I've worked with Prashant for a large (200+ person) reception, and the dancefloor was so packed that guests danced around chairs and tables.  He even does a quick Bollywood dance lesson! 

Officiants & Vows


Officiant Jimmie

Jimmie is a phenomenal and funny officiant.  I've worked with him on a number of occasions, and his ceremonies and interactions with couples are incredible.

If you want a kind, welcoming pastor, David is wonderful.  He rocks a cowboy hat, cracks great jokes, and officiates beautiful ceremonies!  He is queer-friendly and very respectful.

The PDX Dancing Witches are a group of mystical and magical performers inclusive of all genders and abilities.  If you're having a spooky, magical, or whimsical wedding, this group would be perfect!

Pet Attendant Services


Tails & Vows
I've worked with Lindsay several times, and each time, she's been wonderful.  I've also photographed weddings and sessions where there is a pet without a pet attendant, so I have plenty of comparison.  Without fail, having Lindsay from Tails and Vows on site to help with pet coordination and care makes photos and the event itself run super smoothly.

Andy is a fellow queer wedding vendor, and a pleasure to work with.  She's full of energy, professional, and on her game.
