Today’s wedding vendor interview is with Abby Sparks, Founder & CEO of Abby Sparks Jewelry based in Denver, CO! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Abby Sparks Jewelry was born in 2013, after I saw lots of my friends struggle finding the the perfect engagement ring and wedding bands. They didn’t want to blindly order something on the internet, and walking into a big box retailer and pointing at a ring felt weird to them. I saw my community seeking out a more personal, meaningful jewelry buying experience. They wanted to know how their ring was being made. . Using my jewelry design experience, I wanted to create an experience where my clients could get the unique ring they were looking for. Abby Sparks Jewelry started as just me, meeting clients at coffee shops and talking about their dream ring. Now, five years later, I have grown my business into an amazing, badass team of women in a beautiful loft space in the heart of Denver. From our jewelry designers to the creative department, the entire team works hard to give you a meaningful custom jewelry experience where you are fully involved, fully guided, and fully educated to create your dream custom jewelry.

Custom Groomsmen Gifts (4)

This rugged collection of customizable groomsmen gifts, brought to us by Groomsmen Central (Austin, TX) is full of fun ways to say “Thank you!” to the fellas. Enjoy:

We didn’t want to make the typical 6 oz. hip flask when we made these full 8 oz. copper-coated stainless steel flasks. The result is you and your groomsmen don’t have to settle for anything less than best. Add up to 5 lines of engraving and the result is flask perfection.

Today’s wedding DJ interview is with DJ Dan Moran of LifeBass Entertainment, LLC, based in Norwalk, CT! Enjoy:

Tell us about yourself and how you started playing.

I began about ten years ago performing for fundraisers and college events. Over time I started working corporate events in the area, this led to relationships with talent agencies like Kunjan Collective and Scratch Music Group. Next thing you know I’m DJing events across CT, NYC and Long Island and I’ve left my full time job in Finance.

Five years at Bridgewater Associates ingrained a doctrine of constantly pushing myself to improve in all areas and provide the best customer experience possible. That’s what all this is about at the end of the day, putting on a good time! And not just on the dance-floor, but before and after the event as well.

Meet a Wedding Vendor in Portland, OR: Picshare Party (5)

Today’s wedding vendor interview is with Jeremy Senn, Developer and Creator of Picshare Party, based in Portland, OR! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

As a Ruby on Rails full-stack developer that likes photography and getting down at weddings, I realized that the typical wedding picture sharing process is broken and needed to be “debugged”. Typically, there are three ways brides and grooms try and gather the pictures that their guests take at their wedding:

  • Text friends and family directly asking for any pictures after the wedding.
  • Try and convince everyone attending their wedding to download and install a phone app before the wedding, then post pictures via the app during.
  • Place disposable cameras around the wedding venue and hope that people will contribute.

Holly of Holly Von Lanken Photography, LLC (Atlanta, Georgia) shared this lovely wedding fair with us and we’re so glad she did! It’s absolutely brimming with impeccable wedding details. Here’s Holly to tell us more:

This workshop is the brain child of Nicole with Simply Catering. She had the idea for vendors to get together and showcase their talents for brides while also providing them with education. The afternoon was full of beautiful decor, delicious food, and tips from vendors anywhere from how to save your top tier of your wedding cake to cooking and floral demonstrations. It was the first of hopefully many “Simply” workshops for brides with so many amazing and talented vendors.
