"Click on "Our Departments" and "Bakery Department" to see sample cakes. Lori is awesome to work with and the prices are very reasonable (we paid about $400 for a cake that served about 150--we didn't end up having that many guests and had plenty left over, but that's ok by me!)"


Schroeder's DJ Service

Champaign, IL, USA

"Ray was our DJ and I was satisfied (but not thrilled) at the service. Their rates are very competitive and that's why we chose them, however I don't feel like the music played really reflected our tastes. I felt like I tried to communicate what we wanted to hear but yet "Moon River" was played at my wedding. I guess I wanted something different than your typical wedding music but I feel like that is what I got."


Tammie Lawson

Champaign, IL, USA

"Tammie was absolutely fantastic. She does the flowers out of her home but was totally on point with everything. I loved my bouquet and all the bridesmaids bouquets so so very much."

Tuxedo Vendor:

Men's Wearhouse

17300 West Bluemound Road
Brookfield, WI, United States

"Overall a decent vendor--they were accomodating when I decided I didn't like the pointy collar on my husband-to-be and got him a new shirt the day before the wedding, and when my brother in law put on his pants right before the wedding, and found out they were about 6 inches too short (literally) they found a new pair of pants quickly and all was well."

"Father Luke was wonderful, the musicians we hired through the chapel were great. The only downfall was that had we waited until August, the chapel would have been air-conditioned. The windows were open on our day, and you better believe right in the middle of our vows, someone on the street outside started their motorcycle. It makes a funny story, though."
