DOVER WEDDING IN SEPTEMBER

September, 2011 in Dover

"Our wedding was perfect. The weather was great and we were very lucky! We had so many good vendors and people that helped make our day wonderful. Dover is a great little town and there is a lot to do. Perfect for a weekend getaway for your guests. We had our rehearsal at Oriental Delight on Central Ave, which ended up being wonderful and delicious (they were so accomadating). The bridal party stayed at the beautiful Silver Fountain Inn on Silver St where the breakfast was yummy, the rooms and scenery picturesque and the staff was very pleasant. We blocked rooms at the Hampton Inn and Comfort Inn where guests were able to meet at the 99 Restaurants in between the hotels after the wedding for some after party fun. The ceremony was at St. Joseph Church and we were off to Berwick, Me (just a 10 minute drive) to the Red Barn at Outlook Farm for the reception. It was the perfect day."

Dance Instructor:

Kadanse

"Kelley and Fitz are amazing! We had the best wedding dance ever. They gave us a free 45 min intro lesson which is way more than you will get anywhere else. They can teach you a simple dance step that you can use or you can get the entire dance choreographed. We had 4 minutes of a completely choreographed dance with 2 types of steps to keep it interesting. Fits was such an amazing instructor and we highly reccomend Kadanse! You can also get into Zumba with Kelley to get fit before the wedding! Highly reccomend, we love them!"

"Jessica was so easy to work with. She helps us figure out exactly what we wanted. very reasonable prices and high quality work. The centerpieces, bouquets, church decorations, and everything else she provided were just perfect. Highly reccommend!"

Invitations Vendor:

VistaPrint

Asheville, NC, USA

"The best way to go. You just need to get creative. I also reccommend checking out Etsy.com, but VistaPrint provides many option and you just need to take the time to design everything. I ended up saving so much because it wasn't marked up for being labeled "wedding" products. I got notecards and post-its for Save the Dates, postcards for RSVPS, different sized cards and notecards for the invitations. I used their printed materials along with my crafts (stamps and ribbons) and everything came out wonderfully."

Limo Company:

Ledgemere Transportation - Wells, ME

658 Sanford Road
Wells, ME, United States

"Only 1 of the 3 school buses showed up to bring guests to the ceremony from the hotel. Then it parked in back without making a second trip for the 5 minute drive. The Hampton Inn saved us by shuttling the guests to the church. We started 30-45 minutes late. Thankfully all 3 buses were there by the end of the ceremony to take us to the reception otherwise they would have ruined my wedding. They refunded us partially but never gave any explanation as to why the screwed up. I would find another company for buses. My mom swears they took 5 years off her life with all the worrying they caused. BEWARE!"

Photographer:

Milestone Images - Angie Gaul

Dover, NH, USA

"Angie was wonderful. She got the shots we wanted and helped us every step of the way. It is a stressful day and its tough to take the time to get lots of photos in, but Angie helped us get it done quickly, and painlessly. We have only seen the preview and slideshow, but from what I have seen so far, I am completely satisfied. I found her on Offbeatbride.com and I am so glad we hired her. I highly reccommend having her attend the rehearsal as well. She was so great!"

Wedding Fashion Vendor:

Bridal Alteration by Anahit

Newton, MA, USA

"Anahit is amazing, and she does great work. Highly recommend. if you get your dress from VOWS in Watertown, she is the go-to seamstress. I recommend both."

Ceremony & Reception Venue:

The Red Barn

310 Portland Avenue
South Berwick, ME, United States

"The most beautiful venue, a wonderful waitstaff, and a great management team. The venue was so perfect. The building and scenery are so beautiful. Sarah Hanks, the coordinator/Manager at the Red Barn was wonderful. The veranda was perfect for cocktail hour. I recommend reserving the siding for it incase you face inclimate weather. The food was unreal! We had a duet plate of brocc/cheese stuffed chicken and filet and it was so good. Many people commented that it was the best filet they had ever had and that it was cooked perfectly cooked... I agreed. I highly reccomend the Red Barn at the Outlook Golf Links!"

Hotel:

The Hampton Inn -Dover

Dover, NH, USA

"I'd give them 10 stars if I could.. maybe 100. They were absolutely amazing. We had our dessert welcome reception there on Friday night and we hired 1 staff member to help setup and replenish drinks, etc throughout the night. She was wonderful and it was the prefect venue for a casual gathering. The free breakfast was great, too! They saved our butts when our transportation from the hotel to the ceremony got screwed up by another vendor (see my other reviews). Before being instructed to, they had the shuttles running people to the ceremony to make up for the missing buses. They were so good to us and I would definitley block out rooms here for your wedding. The management team is wonderful and it is a very nice, reasonably priced and clean hotel."
