After having a trial run of my wedding hairstyle with another hairstylist, I was terrified whether or not my dream hairstyle would work for the wedding - the other hairstylist made me look so bad!
I met Heather at an event and she said she did wedding hair and make up. She came in and did our wedding hair for a great price and I had my dream hair!!!!! She did such a great job. I had 9 bridesmaids and she did a splendid job the morning of! Everything was efficient and my bridesmaids looked so beautiful!!!
Thank you, Heather!
I cannot say enough about Grand Elegance Cakes!! I had the privilege of attending 11 weddings over the last year and I am proud to say, our cake tasted and looked the absolute best! Jeni worked so hard and within our budget for the cake we wanted. She was so excited to try what we had in mind and I felt as if she worked as hard for me as she would her own daughter! She came the day of the wedding and set up the cake table beautifully (if you visit her website you will see a photo of our cake: the white cake with chocolate drippies and red rose petals).
The cake was so moist and the frost was amazing! You don't get that often with wedding cakes. I have had so many guests compliment the cake! One person who got married earlier in the year even said our cake was better than hers!!!
I am endlessly impressed! Thank you Jeni!
Jed's BBQ&Brew is a well-know sports bar/family restaurant in Northwest Ohio (I would put it at a cross between Buffalo Wild Wings and Coyote Ugly). So people were surprised when I chose Jed's as my caterer (I guess they were expecting chicken wings).
I never expected on the day of my wedding to get so many compliments!!! People kept coming up to me and telling me how good the food was! Even weeks after the wedding they were still telling me how good the food was!
An the service was incredible. The owner catered the event! He and his fellow restaurant managers showed up in white and black service uniforms and were on top of everything. And when we ran out of alcohol at the bar, they rant to one of their stores for us and got more!!!!
I am soooo impressed! Thank you Pete Govito!
I learned about Pollynn flowers through my Aunt who helped my cousin plan her wedding in Rossford. My autn kept going on and on about how lovely and helpful Lynn was and how inexpensively she was able to make a beautiful wedding.
Even though her reputation proceeded her, I was blown away when I met Lynn. From the first moment she was just so focused on helping me out! She worked with my budget (which was economical to say the least) and gave me the most beautiful flowers and decorations I could have desired. I am so thankful to have met her and worked with her company.
She went out of her way to drop off some decorations the day before the wedding and even let me borrow some things free! The day of the wedding she came to drop the flowers off and was so kind and centered on me.
I used Clay Expression for my Bridesmaid favors and they were exceptional! Mt potter, Cindy Koh, handmade 13 ring dishes for my bridesmaids, flower girl, mother and mother-in-law. On each of the ring dishes, I was able to write a message to the person. All of the recipients thought the idea was so special and I know they will treasure that gift for a very long time.
Cindy worked with my budget and I was able to all 13 of them, including shipping, for under $50!!! It was a gift that looked extremely expensive, but was obviously not! Cindy went to a university in Indiana and then returned home to Malaysia and opened up a pottery workshop and school. Clay Expression also has a Facebook page where you can see their workshop and other works of art.
Thank you Cindy!!
I was very impressed with Troy Hoffman. He spent the whole day with us and even came to the rehearsal and stopped at the between wedding sites, to get a better feel of where he would be shooting! He is also shoots for a very modest price.
I was very impressed! Thank you Troy!
I registered at Target because there is always one nearby and I knew it would make it easy for my guests, but honestly, they weren't that great. We registered at about 5 places and Target gave us the worst deals on everything. Plus they never have any sales. If I were to do it again, I would register at Target only for my wedding showers, with just small gifts. Or else I would just not register at Target and go with Bed Bath and Beyond instead. They have better selection.
We had both the wedding and the reception at All Saints - it was so beautiful and affordable (and I'm Catholic and appreciated the beauty of the church).
First of all, the priest, Fr. Kent and the sacristan, Bonnie Tolls, were just incredible. Mrs. Tolls arranged everything and was on top of everything that day. She even made sure that my train and veil were arranged before I walked down the aisle!!!
The reception hall is the biggest indoor reception hall in Toledo. It also allows outside vendors to cater (which was a must for me).
The only down side about All Saints, is that the parish secretary was never very nice and didn't always know what was going on (although she acted like she did). I had many unexpected surprises that really ended up being ok, but I was just frustrated for no reason because no one knew what was going on. My only advice is just be very specific, ask specific questions, ask DUMB questions, and make sure keep a paper trail and get things in writing.
But I am very very glad we had our celebration at All Saints.
The Hampton Inn was exceptional!! They ben over backwards to help us and make sure we had a great stay! Everything was perfect and the staff was very freindly...oh, and the free breakfast was incredible!
