OUR WEDDING

June, 2011 in 4521 Spring Grove Avenue Cincinnati, OH 45232

"We wanted a non-traditional wedding that reflected our style and took place in our neighborhood. We took the risk of an outdoor wedding in June and it worked out beautifully. The restaurant reception felt like an intimate gathering rather than an anonymous and impersonal event, like some weddings we have experienced."

Cakes/Candies Vendor:

Sugar

Cincinnati, OH, United States

"Great source for delicious vegan cupcakes. Even our non-vegan guests were delighted with the chocolate cupcakes. There was a little confusion about the order (when I called to change the order, they had lost the original order and I had to re-order)."

Cakes/Candies Vendor:

Take the Cake

4035 Hamilton Avenue
Cincinnati, OH, United States

"Outstanding cakes. Definitely of the rich and dense variety rather than the light and fluffy variety. We ordered 4 different cakes rather than a traditional tiered wedding cake. The cakes were beautiful and the guests raved about the coconut and lemon-berry flavors."

Ceremony Musician:

Fairfield Artists

3103 Fairfield Avenue
Cincinnati, OH, United States

"Really impressive musicians. We chose a string trio for our outdoor wedding and were very happy with the quality of music and professionalism of musicians. They were helpful and flexible during music selection."

DJ:

Sounds Great Entertainment

1169 Lake Meadow Court
Lebanon, OH, United States

"Not a very good DJ. Low price, but I did not feel like the DJ was very knowledgeable about music. We ended up hand picking most of the songs and had to provide a large portion of the music ourselves, since we like indie music and the selection was pretty limited. Might be a fine choice if you want pretty conventional choices, but not good if you like alternative music. Not a great presence at the reception and didn't time some events very well."

Florist:

Hazelfield Farm

Cincinnati, OH, United States

"I got my peony bouquet from Hazelfield farm and picked it up at the Madeira farmer's market. They also do larger parties. The flowers were beautiful, affordable (32 bucks! for about 15 stems), and it felt great to support a local farmer. They also do larger orders for weddings. Sometimes it took a long time to get an e-mail response."

Photographer:

Innovatory Photography

6457 Glenway Avenue
Cincinnati, OH, United States

"Reasonable rates for all day coverage. Laid back, photojournalistic style avoids awkward poses and captures the real emotions. We were thrilled with the photos and can't wait to see more. Absolutely top rate!"

Ceremony:

Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum

4521 Spring Grove Ave
Cincinnati, OH 45232

"Great staff and beautiful grounds for an outdoor or indoor wedding. Rates were fairly expensive, but having a backup rain location included put our mind at ease. Some areas of the garden could have been a little better maintained, but overall, it was very beautiful and just what we hoped for."

Reception:

The Summit Restaurant

3520 Central Pkwy
Cincinnati, OH 45223

"The Summit doesn't frequently do wedding receptions, but they did a fantastic job for our small (70 people) reception. The food was outstanding and the space was very beautiful, from the outdoor cocktail hour to the dining room (which we dressed up with white tablecloths and chair covers). Very attentive staff. Event planner, Ruth Anne, did a great job, but was sometimes hard to reach."
