My name is Jenna Miller and I'm the Creative Director for Here Comes The Guide. Before I started working here, I used to plan my wedding. It was by far my favorite wedding website due to its user-friendliness, pretty layout, and seriously detailed information.

I ended up finding my venue on and loved the website so much that I used it to find my vendors, too. I discovered vendors that I didn't know about and the site helped reinforce my decision to book certain vendors that I'd heard about elsewhere. It was great to be able to search Here Comes The Guide to see if the companies I was considering had been "certified," because in my mind that really validated them as a solid and reputable company.
