Scott, the owner is amazing. He kept everything under control and made sure the timing of the whole night was perfect. He read our crowd just right and everyone was dancing all night. I definitely recommend 2 bays djs, they were professional and fun!
Our photographer, Ben, is from South Carolina, but will travel to pretty much any destination. Our photos were BEAUTIFUL. It was rainy on our wedding day and Ben still made everything wonderful. He makes you feel like the most important person in the world and also very comfortable, not to mention our photos are stunning!
Phyllis does wedding cakes out of her home in Frankfort. She was recommended by practically everyone we asked. She was very friendly and super nice. She even increased the size of our cake for no charge because she thought it would look better! You won't be dissapointed with the cake either, we had carrot, and I still dream about it in my sleep!!
Catering by Kellys was wonderful. Mr. Kelly made our event a success. They were very professions, passionate, friendly, and understanding! They even made sure to save us some of the appetizers we worked so hard on picking out so that we could try them when we got to the reception. Wonderful.
My flowers were my favorite part of my day. I cried when she brought them in. Kelly Lively has a real talet. She has a very naturalistic style and knack for putting interesting things together. The first time I met with her I knew I wouldn't be dissapointed, and I wasn't. They were absolutely beautiful!!
My hair turned out beautifully and so did my bridesmaids. I'm not sure if they do updos all the time here, so I was nervous, but I would definitely recommend. Jinx (the owner) had mimosas and snacks waiting for us, it was above and beyond. The downside is that they did charge a lot for my mom's hair that was only curled. Other than that, wonderful!
We were the first people to ever have a wedding in this park. We set up a tent and used the park bathrooms. The people we delt with at the city, we wonderful, this was probably the thing that went the smoothest. It was pouring rain during our reception, but we didn't even notice, we were having too much fun. We liked this location because it was within walking distance to our hotel for our guests.
We used Harbor Lights Resort in Frankfort. The hotel is beautiful and everything worked out in the end, but I must say that I had difficulties with them from the beginning. When guests called in to make reservations under our block of rooms, they wouldn't realize they were with us and tell them that the hotel was full. They tried to charge me for a 2 bedroom suite for my photographer, saying I booked it that way. They also charged the wrong credit card for our wedding night suite. If you use this hotel, make sure you deal with the owner directly if you have any problems. He is very nice and worked everything out for me!
We had our ceremony at Point Betsie Lighthouse. The venue is beautiful and everything worked out beautifully in the end. Volunteers look after the lighthouse and can be quite protective of how you use the facility. Just make sure that you make it clear in the beginning what you want!
