JoAnna and John's Wedding

427138

Our wedding day was so much more than we hoped for. It's true that weddings here are a bit more expensive than other places but that just means you have to have to use the opportunity to get creative. We were able to have terrific food and entertainment, a gorgeous outdoor venue, a surprise taco truck and surprise fireworks. A few tips: 1.)Do your research: our perfect venue was a city owned property that wasn't listed in any of the online wedding sources and was one of our best choices. 2.) Listen to referrals but don't be afraid to strike out on your own to find a great deal; we ended up getting a beautiful and delicious cake by trying out a wholesale baker. 3.) Even if you don't have a million dollar budget you can still get the most out the money you do have by surprising your guests with unexpected touches; We purposefully planned a wedding near water on a holiday weekend in hopes that we could get fireworks and instead a nearby event center was putting on a fireworks show- we got it for free!

Cakes/Candies

This is a wholesale bakery that uses top quality ingredients. They don't have a retail outlet so their prices are much more reasonable than many storefront bakeries ($7 for cake!!)
