The wedding was better than I ever thought it would be! I decided to do my own floral arrangements as well as all the decorations (with the help of family members). I had worked so hard for so long to pull everything together for this one evening, and I was on cloud 9 the entire night. This was also my chance to say good-bye to everyone since we left shortly after the wedding to live in England for the next 3 1/2 years. I would not have changed anything for the world. The work was hard, but I felt that it was definitely worth it because it reflected more on the two of us rather than having some professional who doesn't know you at all do all the work.
The cakes that Debbie made for us were absolutely AMAZING! She used the embroidered design from my dress on my cake and used the Air Force emblem for my husband's since he's in the military. Not only were the cakes visually stunning, but they tasted wonderful as well! And she did all of this without the use of fondant (which doesn't taste good at all)! Prices were beyond reasonable. These cakes would have easily cost a couple thousand, but she only charged a couple hundred!
Verde did a wonderful job with the food. The food was not just warm, but hot, when brought out and tasted delicious!
GORGEOUS flowers at amazing prices. Being a wholesale florist, they have an excellent array of flowers to choose from. I chose them so that I could create my own bouquets. I used white hydrangea and coral roses. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to help. My bouquet could have easily cost $500, but it only cost me about $30 through them. Their roses were $17/dozen and each of the 5 hydrangea were $3.
Angela is not a full-time photographer, but she definitely would make a great living from it! She took some stunning photos at our wedding and for my bridal portraits and only charged me a fraction of what most photographers would. For both the wedding and the bridal portraits, she gave me discs of all the photos she took (about 500 bridals and about 1000 wedding pictures!) and asked us to choose two songs that she would use in a slideshow of some of the best pictures. She is also putting together a photo book for us of the wedding. I was amazed to see pictures of my wedding that looked like they were for a magazine! She's very accommodating and professional, while being very personable at the same time. Great woman to work with!
It's hard not to love the church you grew up in, but I really do believe that it is a beautiful venue for a wedding!
Stunning! The staff set up all the tables, tablecloths, decorations. The lighting was wonderful. There was plenty of space for everyone, so no crowding up. The staff was very courteous and helpful.
