Purchase Area's Best Wedding Vendors

See also

The purchase area is very blessed with awesome and unique wedding vendors. Some brides want to keep it classy, and some want to take it up a notch. The key to finding the right vendor for you, is to find one that can meet everyones needs, regardless of personal taste. I have a list of local vendors, that are all locally owned, that can cater to every need. If you want a princess wedding, no problem. If you want a punk wedding while rocking out the Chuck Taylors, awesome! If cowboy boots are a must, no worries with these guys! Check out these local folks, and stay as far away from big name chains as possible.
Each wedding needs a venue. If you are going to get married, you will have to get married somewhere. That is a given. The most beautiful place to get married, in my opinion, is the Walker Hall Events Center. It is located in the Historic region of Downtown Paducah and has everything you could possibly want. When you rent Walker Hall, you also get the winding staircase, professional sound system, stage, and an oak dance floor. This place will take your breath away, and with 7,800 square feet, you have plenty of room to decorate as you see fit. You can contact Walker Hall at 270-575-4568.
To help you decorate, the absolute best florist you could possibly find is the Rose Garden Florist. It is locally owned and was voted Best Florist in Paducah 2013. There is no question in my mind why they were voted number one. These guys will set down with you and actually listen and take notes to everything you desire. If you aren't sure of a flower you want, they will bring out books and sit with you while you go through them. They will literally help you piece together each detail of your decorations and wedding flower needs. Contact the Rose Garden Florist at 270-442-0020.
Next is attire. Each bride has an idea for that special dress in her mind. If you go to Anne's Bridal located in West Paducah, they will go above and beyond helping you find the dress of your dreams. Unlike David's Bridal, you will not need an appointment, and they will not call and harrass you at a later date. The friendly staff at Anne's Bridal was voted the Best Bridal Shop by the Paducah Sun's Reader Choice Awards. Anne's has a huge selection of dresses, some by top designers that you will not find anywhere else. If you need an alteration, they can do it there for you, so you don't have to send it off and then have to wait for it to come back. Anne's Bridal can be reached at 270-744-6841.
Almost as important as the dress and flowers is the cake. Usually brides have a certain style of cake in their mind, just like they do a dress. Shannon's Sweet Celebrations is locally owned by Shannon Young. This lady has been making cakes since 1992, and she does a fantastic job! She has many different flavors to choose from, different types of icing, and all you have to do is tell her what you want and she will create it for you. If you would like to talk to her about your special day, call her at 270-559-3364.
If you are thinking of having your wedding catered, consider Laura Duff's Pampered Palate. If you are familiar with Kirchhoff's Bakery, The Pampered Palate is ran out of there. This whole family is absolutely wonderful. They are sweet, caring, and they give back to the community. Their children go to school in the local schools, and when you give to them, you are enabling them to give back to the community. Laura's food is delicious. For a small town catering facility, she captures a very upclass look. You will not be disappointed when you call her at 270-575-2015.
Finally, whats the point of doing all of this and not have someone there to capture the memories? Shoot Me Photography is the only photographer you will need. It is ran by Tate Graham, and she will travel to you. This photographer has a very easy going personality and will make your photo sessions fun, and in return give you beautiful memories that you will cherish forever. Shoot Me Photography is able to do all your photos from engagement photos all the way through to the reception. Tate can be reached at 618-771-6624.
Don't take my word for all these wonderful vendors. Check them out for yourself. I have added photos from them in the slide show, and have included links to their personal web pages in this article. Let these guys make your wedding easy, affordable, and memorable
