"Florists were simply amazing and priced so reasonable. Since our wedding we've used them again on at my friends weddings, university graduations, and funerals and recommend them to all of our friends and family. The florist shop is family run business that is multi generational and staff is so friendly and really listen work to make it fit into your budget. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!"

"We booked this individual based on the samples we were shown. However contract was not fulfilled!! One of the conditions of our contract was to go to the sites a head of time to meet with the manager of our location site (since we took photos in a museum) and that was a condition for them to go over the rules. Photographer had no plan whatsoever, many of the shots we requested were not taken (basic photos of mother and bride, father and bride, bride's family) that we had specially asked for and were written into our contract. Photos were not edited at all and were burnt on to cds."

"Would have given this a full five stars if we hadn't had more than a few bar patrons attempt to crash our wedding for the open bar. Location was central to everything. Food was excellent (we had very particular requests that weren't on the regular menu and they pulled it off perfectly). The manager Michelle was always willing to see us, great and returning phone calls and really pleasant to work with. We used the Chruchhill Room on the main floor which has all the same class as the Fort Gary hotel without the price tag. Very affordable!"

"DO NOT BOOK YOUR WEDDING HERE! I'd like to something positive about my experience working with the church but it was awful. From the very start they double booked our wedding date and did not tell us till months after wards when we already had other contracts with other vendors. We made it work with the other date however the problems did not stop their. We paid extra for their soloist to perform (because they do not allow outside people we were told) however on the day they didn't show up. We submitted our musical request months before however on the day of the event the organist had not idea what our music selections were (the sheet music was luckly on site) however there were lots of mistakes in his performance. As an organist myself this was one of the biggest reasons for booking the site and I was very disappointed with the performance. We had a couple meetings with the minister before the service to clarify and select different verses and passages we'd like read. However during the service two of these (the ones most meaningful to us) were entirely omitted and phrases we asked to be removed that he agreed with regarding "the point of marriage being solely produce children" were left in. To top it all off he forgot to announce us husband and wife and allow us to kiss. I was so upset with just one thing after another happening that I cried leaving the platform and for quite awhile after the service. They sent us free tickets to the concert series they host, but nothing will ever replace those memories for me for that day and it turns now a year latter to even talk about them."
