JENNIFER & CHRIS'S WEDDING

October, 2009 in Augusta

"Our wedding was exactly what we hoped it to be. October is a beautiful month, and still warm in Augusta. We also saved money on our honeymoon for vacationing in the "off-season"."

"Ms. Debbie is wonderful to work with! I had no idea what I wanted in a wedding cake and she helped me create one that was unique to my wedding! She asked for color samples from the dresses and started a file for me. She had a variety of cake, icing and filling samples available for me when I got to the consultation. She drew sketches of different cake types and even gave me tips on how I could save money!! She gave me copies of all the notes she took and encouraged me to call her if there was any details I wanted to add or change. I felt very confident when I left her shop. Her prices beat quotes that I got from bigger grocery stores like Publix, and my cake was absolutely delicious! She delivered it to my reception site and used a beautiful silver stand to display it on, which she does NOT charge extra for! Everyone else does. I saw guests taking slices home at the end of the night!! Best of all, as a gift to her brides and grooms, Debbie makes an additional top tier for you to freeze and eat on your anniversary!! So the cake you pay for can be sliced up and served to guests without fussing with getting a chunk of cake home after your wedding. She even wraps the extra tier for you and allows you to pick it up after your honeymoon, Now THATS customer service."

"Food was delicious! Wait staff was wonderful. On the other hand, owner/manager Robert Williams is hard to get into contact with. He doesnt answer his phone or return e-mails in a timely manner....pretty stressful when your getting down to the wire and trying to finalize details and payments. Worst, after paying him literally thousands, my final payment was MUCH higher than I expected it to be. Instead of being up front about costs, he initially gave me a low ball number ($27 per person), which I began to put down payments on. He then waited until 7 days before my wedding to hit me with taxes, gratuities and linens for the tables during the last week of my wedding. The total actually came to $46.50 per person. Ouch. I would have preferred that he be more up front and let me know that the original quote did not include taxes/gratuities/etc..., but I guess it would be pretty hard to get any business that way."

"VERY Happy with my experience with David. Its only been one month since the wedding and I've got all my pictures back 2 weeks ago. His packages offer alot of variety, and theres something for everyones budget. I received SO many compliments at my reception from guests who saw how hard David was working. He even brought me something to drink at my reception to keep me hydrated, that blew me away. He captured shots of me that I dont even remember him taking. *Bonus, he has the ability to edit out imperfections and make your shots really gorgeous. He is very personable too, I feel like we are friends. I am just as happy with my wedding photos as friends who went with much more expensive photographers, and I ended up with SO much more."

Wedding Day Beauty Vendor:

Tangles of Evans

"This salon is where its at! I was able to make an appointment for the day of my wedding and have all my bridesmaids meet for some pampering. The prices were reasonable (about $45 for an updo, around $65 for the bride). They allowed us to have brunch and provided a table to set up our snacks. They even helped me scrounge up a bucket for the champagne at the last minute because I forgot mine, and they provided ice out of their own freezer. I was thrilled with my hair which was done by Kayla. She is the updo Queen! After we were all beautified Kayla was sweet enough to offer to take pictures of all my girls posing with me. It was a really fun morning with no stress, and everyone loved their hair!"

Ceremony:

First Advent Lutheran Church

3232 Washington Rd
Augusta, GA 30907

"This church is absolutely gorgeous on the inside. Stained glass windows and the pews are set up for those tall candles if you want to use them. Pastor Matt Lash is really nice and allowed me to stop in frequently to look at the sancuary, take measurements, etc.. His secretary created beautiful programs *in color* for my ceremony. My only complaint was he flat out told me no when I asked if I could take down a tacky tapestry that was hanging on the wall at the front of the sanctuary just for my wedding day, and then re-hang it before we left. Make sure your photographer has the capability to photoshop little things out for situations like this."
