Lars & Alison were gifted with a gorgeous Summer day for their Carpinteria Lion’s Club Wedding. One of the best things about this fantastic wedding location is that few people know about it and it is one of the best wedding locations in Carpinteria and Santa Barbara. The park is impeccably maintained and has a variety of options. Best of all, the Lions Park has much of the equipment already onsite, meaning you do not have to add to your rental bill. From the on-site kitchen to chairs and tables plus their flexibility with the wedding vendors – this is a great location.

The Most Important Wedding Vendor Decisions

What to Consider when Choosing your Most Important Wedding Vendors

A LOT goes into planning a wedding… so where do you start?!

Important wedding vendors


Let us help you prioritize. The most important decision you can make while planning your wedding is the selection of your wedding coordination package. There are options to consider: day-of, week-of, full-service. We love (Ann Johnson Events!) If you choose a full-service coordinator that would automatically take a huge burden off your shoulder because this means that the coordinator gets in touch with all other vendors including your venue and begins plotting the details. A month of or day off coordinator also allows for a great amount of relief knowing that they will be there to ensure a smooth event day, which is half the battle.

Next is the venue selection. Once you secure your venue you can start getting a more realistic image of the other pieces that will come together to create your ideal space. Additionally, once this is solidified you can cross pondering different potential dates of your list. You will have the space, YOUR SPACE locked down for the most magical night of your life.

What is something that everyone looks forward to at a wedding? FOOD, yes, the food. Your caterer is an important selection when it comes to vendors. Many times, the venue will have in house Catering if you are planning your wedding at a hotel or resort. If this is not the case, staying within budget while still delivering some delicious food for your guests can take some research! More recently, we are seeing the food truck trend which allows you to spice it up and bring multiple different types of cuisine to your fun-filled event!

Another vendor who is very impactful on the big day is the DJ or musician. Typically, this person, or group, also acts as the MC who will announce your bridal party and groomsman when they enter, introduce your lovely mother and father for their speeches, and somewhat dictate the flow of the event overall. Choosing someone who is timeline oriented and that you have a good connection with is critical.

The photographer is additionally one of the most important people present during this once in a life time event! They are responsible for capturing what will be one of the best days of your entire life. Choosing someone whose style you resonate with, personality you vibe with, and skills you admire will ensure the ability to relive that day over and over.
