James Fry did an AMAZING job!!! I'm very particular about photos and wanted them to be perfect. We didn't get a video, so the pictures were very important to us and they turned out to be nothing short of perfect! When you book him, he is yours for the entire day (no time limit). So he came over while us girls were getting ready in the morning, got the guys getting ready, the entire ceremony, formal pictures after, tons of pictures downtown Detroit with the bridal party, and the entire reception! It was great and we are so thankful to have all of our memories of that day documented. He is extremely talented and I highly recommend him! He may seem a little more expensive, but it is totally worth it! We got a complimentary engagement session, all-day coverage of the wedding day, an album (which we were already able to review less than one month following the wedding), two parent albums, and a flash drive with all the pictures he took and full rights to print! He is also super flexible with what you're looking for. So many people told me how impressed they were with him and even our bridal party was all saying how much fun he made picture-taking (unlike some other photographers they had experienced that were not-so-fun...or nice!). We cannot say enough good things about him.
They worked with us very well and kept everything organized for us. Only one of our groomsmen had issues with them, which were just a miscommunication, and was a result of them having his measurements from 2007 in their system. He ended up getting it straightened out pretty easily and everyone looked great at the wedding. They require you to come in to pick up your tuxedo one to two days before the event, which is a VERY good idea because a couple of the guys had major alterations they whipped up in just a few minutes. But had they not tried it on before the wedding, it would've been a disaster! It was great though.
Memory Maker DJ's did our uplighting in purple all around our venue. It was absolutely beautiful and totally transformed the space! It felt so warm and welcoming.
Our cake was delicious and BEAUTIFUL! She is a great sugar artist and did a wonderful job on our cake. We ended up getting one layer in chocolate, the other in yellow, and raspberry jam filling in-between. It was a hit!
Chesterfield Florist is located at 31585 Twenty-Three Mile Road in New Baltimore, Michigan. We were living out of the country while planning our wedding, and Sandy worked with us very well. She did things exactly how we wanted them and if we were unsure about anything, she was flexible in letting us take or leave her suggestions (we ended up taking all of them). We used half silk flowers and half real flowers, which cut down the price a bit, but everything looked real! It was great. She incorporated feathers into my bouquet and it turned out even better than I envisioned. The thing I liked most about her was that she always has brides stop by for a preview on the day before the wedding to make sure they like everything. That made me feel more confident to know that we were going to like what we were paying for.
We only got a limo for between the ceremony and the reception. It picked us up from the church, took us downtown Detroit to take pictures, and then dropped us off at the reception. The entire ride was only 3.5 hours, but everything went smoothly. We had trouble working the cd player and radio at first, but eventually one of the groomsmen figured out what was wrong with it. They had cups and a complimentary bottle of champagne waiting for us and the driver was super nice.
After searching around all different companies, Qwik Picz was by far the best when it came to quality and price combined. They weren't over-priced like a lot of the photo booth companies, and the picture quality was exceptional. My cousin had them at his wedding a year prior to ours and our pictures from that night still look like new. They are clear and the color quality is great. They also give you a disc of all your photos for you to keep as well as a memory book, with hard copies of all the pictures your guests took arranged in it. It was a lot of fun to look through and read the little messages our guests left us. I think a photo booth is a "must have" nowadays. Your guests will have a blast in it!
