We couldn't be happier with how our wedding day went. It truly was the most wonderful, happiest day of our lives, and we are blessed to always have those memories to look back on. Wedding mapper was a great resource to have for all our guests; everyone appreciated getting an understanding of the proximity of the different sites to one another and out of towers especially loved the fun and easy to understand resource.
We could honestly not be happier and more pleased with Marc. He was incredibly responsive throughout our entire wedding planning process and was very attentive to making sure that our wishes were heard and brought to fruition. He is extremely professional and highly competent, and also has a wonderful attitude - he is always smiling and positive. We live out of state and he was very flexible and easy going with arranging phone meetings with us and opening his schedule on the weekend we were able to make it to DC, even taking the time to travel to our hotel to see us on a weekend. From the planning process through to our wedding day itself, Marc was always a pleasure to work with and orchestrated for us the most perfect and fun reception, acting as both our DJ and MC. He has our highest recommendation.
We could not be happier with the services provided to us by the English Rose Garden and the joy of working with Taraneh throughout our wedding planning. She is the only florist we met with who was willing to work within the constraints of our budget while still keeping the quality of the work extremely high and ensuring we had the most beautiful flowers we could have dreamed of. She worked with us carefully in helping us make a selection of flowers that matched our desired color palette and had very original, classy, and beautiful ideas for our flowers that worked perfectly with our style and vision for our wedding. Taraneh always responded quickly to our emails and was easily accessible by both phone and email. She was kind and attentive throughout the wedding planning process and ensured we had everything we wanted for our wedding taken care of - she has great management and was very reliable. Taraneh and her beautiful store have our highest recommendation.
This is the only vendor we worked with that we were unfortunately pretty disappointed with. Having any sort of conversation with them post-wedding was a true hassle, and there were additional costs and fees for everything, every step of the way. We chose them for their high reviews, and the photographer that worked with us was indeed very friendly and professional and took great shots. Unfortunately, working with the company on actually getting our pictures, and our album was an unnecessarily tiring and chaotic process, and the videographer did not listen to anything we asked him to do, doing in fact the exact opposite.
The venue was wonderful, exactly what we wanted with outdoor and indoor locations, different spaces for cocktail hour and reception. The food was delicious, and all the staff was very friendly and professional. The wedding coordinator was phenomenal, attentive to detail, and ensured that everything went smoothly from start to finish.
We had a post-wedding informal picnic here and it turned out to be a great spot and a lot of fun! We did not need to get a permit of any kind, and everyone enjoyed the opportunity to relax together by the water.
We booked early to get a special block room rate, and had all our rooms close to one other. It was a solid hotel that gave us a good deal and allowed for the weekend to flow smoothly.
