Over the years, we’ve learned the vital role quality vendors play in creating a stress-free wedding day. We’ve worked with many vendors below, and we can’t recommend them enough. We chose these vendors for both the quality of their work and their professionalism on the actual wedding day.

Keep in mind when making your plans that the peak wedding season for most Charlottesville wedding vendors will be April/May/June and September/October. If you are getting married in those months, you can not book your wedding vendors too soon!

A 3 Cats Photo couple must highly recommend a vendor for them to be included on this list. We have also screened each of these vendors to ensure that they will joyfully celebrate all weddings for all couples.

Every vendor on our list must celebrate all couples, consistently provide stellar service and enhance each wedding day. If you are interested in adding a vendor to our index, please send us a quick email and tell us why!

(I love this image - this is what it is about for me - Alli’s mom had fallen and broken her leg a week before the wedding. The extra hand you see is Alli’s MOH helping her stand so she can help Alli into her gown.)
