Planning a Wedding in Salida

Whether you have a year or four months to plan your wedding, it never feels like there’s enough time, nor enough vendor options to choose from. You bounce between feeling gleeful and stressed, and all you really want to feel is joyous, feel the love all around you and like everything is going to be perfect. When you’re planning a beautiful wedding in Salida, your options may be fewer, but they make up for that in quality and service. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorites that can really help deliver a stunning and memorable day.
