Ron was the most thoughtful and genuinely nice vendor I worked with in the whole wedding process. He genuinely enjoys doing what he does and is very good at it. His prices are comparable to many other photographers (trust me, I checked out lots), but his work is head and shoulders above the rest. That coupled with his great interpersonal skills made him a great asset to our wedding day.

Florists

Our florist was sufficient. We didn't get a lot of fresh flowers but the ones we did were good. She was prompt and had everything in order for the bouquets and boutonnieres. There wasn't a lot of pre-wedding planning, but I guess there really didn't need to be.

What a beautiful place to have a wedding! The wedding coordinator, Melissa, was wonderful to work with, and the sanctuary was perfect the kind of feel we wanted for our ceremony: elegant but still laid-back. My only qualm was that since we weren't members, some of the staff gave us a hard time about decisions regarding the minister and the music. But in the end, it all worked out.

Reception Sites

The planning for the reception went as smoothly as can be imagined, thanks to the help of the event coordinator there, Sabrina. She was very excited and helpful and accommodating and was willing to work with some unique circumstances. So pre-wedding dealings with the restaurant were great. However, the day of, Sabrina wasn't even there so that didn't really put me at ease, not knowing who we could ask questions to. And they were completely booked before and after our event, so there was no time to set up and they hurried us out of there before we were ready (and while it was raining). But the event space was beautiful and everyone raved about the food (Maggiano's also catered).
