Certified By The Guide wedding vendorsLooking for the best vendors for your South Bay or San Jose wedding? We’ve got them right here. How do we know? We ask. And ask. And ask.

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.
