MICHELLE & DAVID'S WEDDING

October, 2009 in St. Helena

"Our wedding was the most perfect day. It exceeded all our expectations and couldn't have been more us. Getting married where we live in Napa Valley was special to us to be able to share that with our friends and family from the midwest. Although slightly pricey and makes for a challenge to find people who will work within your budget. October is a gorgeous time of year in the Valley, the weather was perfect and the grapevines were beginning to turn colors at the end of harvest time. Oh, and Wedding Mapper was a great resource to share with our guests. We'd highly recommend using it! We even had people comment on our maps!!! Who does THAT???"

Band:

Johnny Smith

"LOVED him! He did our ceremony music. We wanted something more contemporary and Johnny was perfect. He has a beautiful voice! At one point in the wedding video, you can see people turning around to see if he's actually singing or if it's a recording. He gave us and our guests goosebumps!"

"Kelly does AMAZING artwork with her cakes. And not only do they look like works of art, but they taste outstanding! It was important to us, our cake taste unique and delicious and it was just that. We provided a picture of what we wanted it to look like and described our style and Kelly helped it come to life. She was also very detailed and easy to work with. Tons of flavor options."

"Clay was a breeze to work with. Always so cheerful and great at offering suggestions and recommendations on how we wanted the night to flow. He made it easy for us to look forward to our meetings with him. The play list was outstanding! People were raving about the music even after the reception. The only complaint would be that the music at the reception could have been louder, as well as his microphone. We definitely recommend talking to Clay about a first dance lesson with he and his wife. VERY worth it even if we didn't quite practice it as much as we should have."

"We fell in love with Heather from the very first email! So much attention to detail. She thought of all the little things that really made our day pop. We absolutely adored our flowers. She did a perfect job capturing the feel we wanted. Better yet, she worked with us on our budget to really give us the biggest bang for our buck. Not many vendors can say that. Not to mention she was so pleasant to work with every step of the way."

Honeymoon Vendor:

Irish Getaways

St. Helena, CA, USA

"We wanted to do something a little different for our honeymoon and found a great package deal so Ireland was the place! Beautiful country, lovely people and good comfort food. Irish Getaways was very informative and organized and with our priorities still focusing on the wedding, we appreciated nominal involvement from us. Our only issue is that some of their recommendations weren't up to par with our expectations. Really make time to research the places they recommend."

Jeweler:

Anna Bellagio

St. Helena, CA, USA

"Horrible service. I bought several pieces of their jewelry to try on with my dress. First, it took WAY too long to arrive and then I tried to return it within the allowed time frame. They have not returned my phone calls or emails and now I am stuck with several pieces of fancy jewelry that I will not wear."

Wedding Day Beauty Vendor:

"Betsey did a great job on everyone's hair! I loved mine! Both of my MOHs loved theirs! One even had her put in her temporary extensions for her. Betsey even redid my mother's hair when another salon gave her a side ponytail...yes, a SIDE PONYTAIL! Betsey was super nice and does a beautiful job. She was prompt and efficient."

"Don and his staff were spectacular to work with! They took very good care of us making sure we took time for ourselves and had enough to eat. They even made us a little midnight snack to take with us. The view is stunning. The food was sooo good, our guests are still talking about it! They were extremely easy to work with and accommodating."
