Sound by Design did an amazing job for our November 6th wedding. Our DJ, Ben, was extremely professional, down to earth, entertaining, and best of all, kept people dancing on the floor all night long. He played all the music on my "wish list" and did not play anything "cheesy" as was requested by Brian and I. Once you sign with Sound by Design, you are given your own username & password where you can create playlists as well as Do NOT playlists. This helps the dj to understand what kind of music you like and what you want to stay away from. I would recommend Sound by Design over and over for weddings, parties, birthdays, etc. They did everything right and made sure my experience with them was one to remember, in a very good way!
Our caramel apples arrived 4 days before the wedding, which left us plenty of time to put them into individual bags, tie the ribbons and tags to them. The apples were all so yummy and out of 225 apples there were 2 that had to be thrown away. Guests raved about them for weeks after the wedding!
My flowers were BEAUTIFUL and very affordable!! Toni was incredible to work with and had so many great ideas to fit within my budget. She came to the church, pinned all the guys with their flowers, handed out the bridesmaid flowers, as well as flowers to the grandparents and godparents. After she was finished at the church, she drove to the reception venue (45 mins away) and set up the Memorial Table as well as Head Table and all center pieces. She did an amazing job. If you are looking for beautiful flower arrangements at a great price, Toni is your go to girl!
I have always wanted to get married at this church as it was where I grew up going. I think the stained glass and the vaulted ceilings are incredibly beautiful. However, I was extremely dissapointed with the priest who married us. At rehearsal, the night before, he kept looking at his watch as if he had somewhere much more important to be. He skipped over one of the readings and gave little direction to my younger cousins who were chosen to bring up the gifts. He was in and out of there in a matter of 20 minutes! On the actual wedding day, he told my groom, "I barely made it today, I had another wedding in Waukesha." Well, THANKS FOR COMING!! Overall, I loved the church, loved the organist, my soloist and the people in the rectory that I worked with. However, the way Father Jim acted the entire time was a bit troublesome and although this more then likely was his 500th wedding, he did not need to act as if it was.
