A licensed cosmetologist with over 7 years of experience, Danielle shares my belief that you deserve to look your absolute best & have your confidence soar on your wedding day! “I got into this industry because I loved seeing the confidence good hair and fabulous makeup brought out in others,” she told me. “When they see their vision brought to life, it’s like a whole new person is sitting in my chair.” Danielle is not only a creative wizard with makeup and a master of high-glam looks; she is also the sweetest person ever.

  • Rhode Island Minister (Officiant)

Home Base: Rhode Island

Areas Served: RI/MA/CT

Learn more about her & get in touch

Minister Tressie Seymour of Rhode Island Minister is a sweet, laid-back, easy-going & very open-minded wedding officiant who’s committed to giving couples their dream ceremony. “The reason I started this business was because I LOVE love!” she shared with me when I asked about her “why.” “Many couples say when they are meeting with officiants, they’re noticing they have certain beliefs on marriage and weddings that are a little old fashioned. I feel that you should be able to have your ceremony how you want it, and I am just there to make it happen. If you’re in love and want to be married, you should be able to be married! I never judge and accept everyone for who they are.” If you & your love are like many of my couples and want to do things a bit differently on your big day, Minister Seymour might just be your perfect fit (especially if you’re thinking about planning a Disney-themed wedding—it’s her dream to officiate one!).

A household name in the New England/greater Boston wedding industry, six-piece band Blurred Vision know how to bring the energy.

It is a gift that we have, and one that we are happy to share with thousands of people over the years. To be able to perform is a blessing, and none of us take it for granted.” On top of being insanely talented, the members of Blurred Vision set themselves apart by working very closely and personally with their couples. They have several different entertainment packages available so that you can have exactly what you’re looking for, and they’re available for weddings in Boston and throughout New England.

Learn more about her & get in touch

Couples who want a highly creative wedding cake made by a true artist – look no further. Michelle Scurio, who first launched her business Cake Monstah in 2010, pours her heart and soul into each and every wedding cake (or, as she very accurately calls them, “edible pieces of art”) she creates. “We are not a mass production facility where your order is just 1 of 50 wedding cakes being made that weekend,” she explained. “I limit the number of weddings I take on each weekend to allow myself to dedicate the attention and time each one truly deserves.” Over the years, Michelle has pretty much done it all, but she’s at her best and happiest when she gets the opportunity to sculpt, draw, paint, or use her airbrush on a cake. “I feel my talents truly shine on those pieces,” she shared with me. I could not agree more—and there won’t be any doubt in your mind either once you check out her Instagram page.
