Some Well Deserved Shout Outs

Fortunately for us, when we started planning our celebration it was a no-brainer when it came to selecting vendors. We have some incredibly gifted & talented friends..this page is dedicated them. You guys are AWESOME!

Brian (URBY) Urbanas: Owner & Operator of Bart & Urby's Downtown Bar & Bistro

Brian (URBY) Urbanas: Owner & Operator of Bart & Urby's Downtown Bar & Bistro

119 South Main Street

Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania 18702

My weirdest childhood friend, Brian Urbanas & his WONDERFUL mother, Patsy will be catering both the Pig Roast/Clam Bake Jack & Jill Shower as well as the reception. Both have been absolutely amazing throughout all of the planning with creative & fun suggestions that go beyond just selecting a menu. If you happen to have a special event in the future that requires catering, I urge you to consider Brian & Patsy. Their talent & expertise is unmatched.

Bart & Urby's also happens to be one of our favorite restaurants & places to grab a drink. If you haven't been there - make it a point to do so. You'll love the atmosphere which features local artists' photography & paintings, the menu has something for everyone, the fantastic staff and an incredible variety of beer selection which changes seasonally.

260 Photography

260 Photography

260 Photography was started as a personal project by Juli and Ryan for their own wedding. It was such a success that word traveled quickly and requests for the photo set started pouring in. A very unique and different approach...this is NOT a photobooth and in fact, much, much cooler. A photo set that was developed, created & constructed by Ryan, Juli & Erin - this is something we know our guests are going to LOVE.
