We had amazing vendors which made for an amazing wedding day! The weather was beautiful and everything went off without a hitch! Guests enjoyed the wedding mapper since it helped them get an idea of where events would be taking place.
Derek Boston (owner and photographer) was an absolute pleasure to work with - both at my bridal portraits and the wedding. He made me (and everyone else!) feel so beautiful and relaxed, which was exactly what we needed! I provided him with a shot list, but it wasn't necessary because he knows exactly what to shoot already, I just wanted to make sure we were on the same page. I am thrilled with the portraits and wedding pictures and love that he gives us the edited photos on disk with rights to print whenever/however we want. He gave me two of my favorite bridal portraits for free so that I could choose one, and also sent me two small magnet books of my 12 favorite pictures. I gave the booklets to my mom and MIL because I knew they'd want to take them to work. He went above and beyond with us and was just wonderful - probably my favorite vendor of the day.
We are not members of the church, but they allowed us to get married there after fees (of course). We had 2 counseling sessions with the Pastor who was wonderful, and both DH and I were extremely comfortable with the pastor and the ceremony. We had to book the church coordinator through them, and we were able to get the church's organist/pianist as well. Having both of those ladies as members of the church made it easy to work with them since they know how things work there. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend the church and Pastor to anyone.
Rehnea is the owner of the house and also the event coordinator. She was fabulous to work with because she's very detail-oriented and has done many weddings on her property so she knows what works/doesn't, and how to save money without anybody noticing. She was basically my DOC without me having to hire one. She took care of all the rentals (tent, serve-ware, linens) and contacted all of the vendors to coordinate with them without me having to do it. She had a time-line in place so everybody knew what we needed to do the whole day, and it all went off without a hitch. The house and tent were beautiful and I couldn't have been happier. She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anybody - I just wouldn't plan on using a DOC or planner, that would probably be stepping on Rehnea's toes and she does a fabulous job on her own.
Dana was amazing to work with, we earned 2 free rooms (which I gave to my parents and a guest) and also got to use a conference room as the hospitality suite for free! They let us bring our own drinks and food and the guests got to mingle and meet the day before the wedding.
