“First thing we did was go through the lists of vendors that were required to pull off a cohesive “wedding” and boy, oh boy did we hit the jackpot!”
We launched Tap Truck Fort Collins March of 2022, when brides and grooms had mostly already locked in their summer wedding vendors. When this occurred to us, we were briefly nervous and bummed. But we didn’t stay there long! Instead, we started reaching out to other vendors in the Fort Collins wedding arena to see if they too wanted to boost their portfolio and use their creative juices to put together an aesthetic mock wedding for the blooming month of May.
First thing we did was go through the lists of vendors that were required to pull off a cohesive “wedding” and boy, oh boy did we hit the jackpot! These vendors included venues, photographers, videographers, wedding planners, florists, hair and makeup artists, bridal gown salons, gift shops (check out the vendor list below!) From casting out a wide net to the locals, a collection of premium vendors were on board and thrilled to offer their talents, skills and resources for the same goal – portfolio growth, great marketing tools via photo and video and one that I was really stoked about – community building! One thing that I am quickly learning about the wedding circle and special event spaces is that it is a big-time people industry. Vendors work collaboratively with others to make the special moments cohesive, stress reduced (because stress free is out of our control — ha!) and positive.
In putting this shoot together, alongside our event planner, Hanna from ElizaRose & Co., we are thrilled to have built relationships with locals and are eager to see the incredible bridal shots featuring our Tap Truck, Dolly! Tap Truck Fort Collins will gladly be participating in more styled shoots in the future. Cheers!
