I would encourage anyone to think about a winter wedding... there is something so romantic and glamorous about it, and it was wonderful being outside of the typical wedding season, giving friends something to really look forward to to beat those winter blues. So many of our guests told us that it was the best, most magical wedding they had ever been to. Personalizing things is what really makes it memorable, which means a lot of time and vendors who are willing to think outside the box with you, but we couldn't be happier overall!
They had a lot of special requests regarding staging that ended up adding cost, but they are so unique and gave our wedding the exact energy and feel we were looking for. We had countless compliments from guests about them. I would 100% book them again!
Could not be happier. She is absolutely amazing to work with in every way, from being warm and fun, to being incredibly efficient at catching those perfect shots, to amazing follow up and final results! I can't imagine working with anyone else.
So creative and personal. Loved her ideas and execution, and she was very willing to work with us on price and be open about alternatives and unique ideas to make our vision come true.
We collected books for our favors, and Tris at the Strand worked with us for months to help us collect the titles we wanted without spending a fortune on Amazon... not to mention the time saved that might have kept us from being able to follow through with our idea. And this ended up being one of the most special, personal things for our guests.
Maritza is the owner and designer, and she helped us to customize every last detail. From the invitation to table cards, guests were floored by the beauty and uniqueness of the designs she helped us to create. Truly one of a kind.
I got a little nervous toward the end when it seemed there was still a lot of alterations to get done... but my worrying was unnecessary! They have, truly, some of the most intricate, stunning designs of anywhere else I went (and I tried about 40 dresses... just could not find the right one at the main boutiques!). On top of that, they were very willing to work with us on design to make the gown completely my own, so that in the end it was practically custom. But the main thing is that the dresses are just to die for.
Frustrating to work with at first and had some errors with bookings, but they got everything sorted out and on the weekend of, the service and staff were flawless and made it a wonderful experience for us and our guests. They also went above and beyond when it came to taking photos. They were incredibly accommodating and allowed us access to special areas of the hotel that made for some truly one of a kind, fashion-magazine worthy photos!
Negotiations with them were a bit frustrating, and there were times we felt a bit nickeled and dimed... or just that there was a lack of clear communication. In the end though, it was beautiful and the staff working the event were warm, efficient, and pretty much perfect!
