Co-Founder, Bruce Vassar, A Legacy

Bruce Vassar loved weddings from the very beginning. As a child he would sneak into church on Saturdays, peaking his head in to get a glimpse of the bride. His passion for all things weddings would lead him to co-found The Wedding Guys® where, along with his best friend Matthew Trettel, he would inspire couples to create a celebration that truly expresses their love.

Bruce leaves behind an amazing legacy, from covering the Royal Wedding of William and Kate to creating international-award-winning bridal shows so couples could be inspired and find the perfect vendors for their wedding. You can discover more about his amazing life and contributions here.
