OUR PREFERRED VENDORS
The following is a list of outstanding individuals in each category of wedding service. Every single person on this list is here for one reason, and one reason only: the work that they do (and the way that they do it) is exemplary. No one can buy their way onto this list, and we don't get anything out of referring these service providers except the comfort of knowing that our couples are in good hands. Your photographer, DJ, and planner will all have a unique impact on the quality of your video, so making sure you choose the best of the best is a critical step in the lead-up to your big day.

"I want to pause. If we were in person, I would give you a warm hug. Sounds dramatic, but I appreciate you being here and considering me to capture a moment that is important to you. The gift of marriage is divine and stirs my spirit every time I have the opportunity to capture a wedding. The celebration of a recent grad transitioning into a new season, a family portrait marking another year well done, the gift of a child, two people whose paths crossed and fell in love, or any other moment that you hold close, I am honored and grateful to take part in it & hand you the gift of a curated, perfected gallery to hold onto for forever."
"Hi there! I’m Carmela, a wedding and elopement photographer based in Arizona, but will travel anywhere for love! The reason I love photography is simple – I love people and I love stories. I am passionate about capturing the genuine interactions, spontaneous moments, and candids that make your personality and love unique. Sometimes, I still can’t believe that I get to do this full time and I thank God for this incredible blessing that I call my job! I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet and become great friends with many AMAZING people along the way and hope to be able to meet YOU and hear your story. Let’s adventure together!" –Carmela
HUDSON GREY WEDDINGS
WEDDING CONSULTING, PLANNING, & COORDINATION
"I'm Anna, owner and lead wedding planner at Hudson Grey Weddings.
I started out as a banquet captain for a corporate wedding venue company where I got to see the not-so-pretty side of weddings. As a banquet captain, I essentially learned the ins and outs of executing a full wedding from start to finish. Although it wasn't the most glamorous job, I realized after my first week that I had absolutely found my passion. I moved up with the company and after a few years, had helped open up two venues and was successfully executing around 100 weddings a year.
As my passion and love for weddings continued to grow, I was presented with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to open up the venue of my dreams in North Scottsdale. This was my final destination before deciding I was ready to offer full service planning exclusively through Hudson Grey Weddings.
As your best friend throughout the planning process, let us show you what it's like to ENJOY the wedding journey. We can't wait to be there with you every step of the way."
"My goal is to provide the highest quality service possible for your wedding ceremony. I am a Licensed and Ordained Minister, and have officiated hundreds of incredible weddings. My officiant package offers flexibility from a simple and elegant ceremony to a fully-customized and extravagant one. I offer religious and non-religious ceremonies, and I am an LGBTQ+ ally."
What makes Ryan unique is how he personalizes and customizes each wedding ceremony to fit the couple’s specific style, vibe, and needs. His enthusiastic approach and tactful delivery will move guests from laughter to tears and back again, escorting you across the threshold of engagement to marriage with all the tender love & care of a family member.
