Welcome to A Bay Area Wedding, a site designed to help couples planning a wedding make informed choices regarding their big day. Consider this a curated list of wedding professionals and venues, each of which has been vetted and auditioned before being included here.

This is not an exhaustive list of all wedding vendors in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is not a site advertising or promoting any one wedding vendor or service. Most importantly, it is not a site that anyone can, or does, pay to be a part of. No vendor or venue listed here has requested their presence here, or been charged for it.

So what is A Bay Area Wedding? It’s a list of vendors with whom I’ve personally worked during my career as a wedding and event planner. I’ve been involved in the San Francisco Bay Area wedding and special event industry since 1989. During those years, I’ve worked at countless wedding venues, and with many caterers, DJs, and other vendors. Many were good, and some were so-so, but a select few were consummate professionals who provided impeccable service. Those are the wedding industry professionals whose work impressed me, and they are the ones spotlighted here.

If you are planning a wedding in Wine Country or the Bay Area, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the vendors listed on this page. Feel free to let them know you found them on A Bay Area Wedding.
