2010 :: A Year to Celebrate!

Whew - what a year! Resha launched our Houston office with enormous success. My adorable son was born (swoon!). And, we won The Knot's "Best of Weddings" for the fourth time! I'll say it again, Whew - what a year! :)

We coordinated some amazing weddings and events this year, and worked with over 400 vendors. Our events wouldn't be nearly as fabulous if it wasn't for some of these fabulous vendors, so we've narrowed down the list to our favorite ~150 vendors of 2010. Our own little "Best Of" list. :) Of course, be sure to talk to your coordinator about which vendor is the best fit for your style and budget, and remember this list is limited to only those we worked with in 2010. It'd be closer to 1,000 if we listed our favorite vendors of all-time!

To our awesome vendors - thank you for making our job a delight. We look forward to working with you in the future!

Much Love,
Jessica, Resha, Lorena and Lauren
