It’s that time of year again – voting for Seattle Bride’s Magazine’s Best Of 2020 is now open!

Starting today (March 3rd) until May 4th, 2020, Seattle Bride will be accepting votes for the top Seattle wedding vendors. Voting will help to determine the Best of 2020! Winners will be announced at a special ceremony later this year and appear in the Fall/Winter 2020 issue of Seattle Bride.

What an absolute honor it would be to be nominated for one of these categories, and to be featured in the Fall/Winter issue of Seattle Bride. My heart still feels like it’s on cloud nine after my feature in the Real Weddings magazine earlier this year.

I’m still new in the PNW neighborhood, but I’m sharing my picks for some of the categories in case you’re looking for some guidance. Not to sway your vote at all, but really to share my own insight with those I’ve worked with or have heard really great things about and hope to work with in the future. I am a small business supporting other small businesses. I’m also not including categories where I haven’t personally worked with someone that I would recommend. You only need to vote in 10 categories, so you can skip the ones you’re unsure about!

Voting is limited to one response per email address, and voters must vote in at least 10 categories.
