Written by  Michaela Stock

From your favorite tattoo parlor to the best realtor around, the Services & People category is all about trust.

 This year’s winners have built their reputation on taking care of West Michigan residents like you and me, and for many, their services have left a permanent mark on our lives--sometimes literally. Congratulations to Sovereign Arms Tattoo Co. and Pete Bruinsma at Grand River Realty!

Let’s not forget about our furry friends, either. Cascade Hospital For Animals took first place in both the vet and grooming category as the most reliable spot to keep your pets healthy and fluffy.

Elise Kutt at Mod Bettie proved herself to be a trusted portrait photographer with her mission to empower women through creating a safe space for female expression. Likewise focused on creating moments of authentic and exceptional love for multicultural couples is winning wedding planner Tanya Lawrence at Tanya Lynnette Events. 

But for many winners, this isn’t their first time getting gold status. Take Funky Buddha Yoga Hothouse, Peaches Bed and Breakfast, and Meraki Salon for example — all trusted champions for years now.

Whether winning for the first or fifth time, the services and people we choose to trust capture our special moments, tattoo our bodies and plan our weddings all hold one thing in common: providing exceptional experiences for West Michigan residents and beyond.
