Wedding Services for Monterey and Carmel Weddings

Certified By The Guide wedding vendorsLooking for the best services for your Monterey or Carmel wedding? We’ve got them right here. How do we know? We ask. And ask. And ask. The wedding photographers, caterers, wedding planners and so on that you find here have all been Certified By The Guide. That means we’ve asked dozens of people (other professionals who’ve worked with them and brides and grooms and mothers of the bride, etc.) for feedback on each one of them…and they passed with flying colors.
