Lauren and Greg's Wedding

Hope our reviews help! We had a very, very nice wedding on a pretty reasonable budget. Lots of work we did on our own, but the vendors we did use knocked it out of the park for us (except one).

Husband and wife team. Quite unflexible with time, very terse, bordering on rude, email communication from Ashley. We were not impressed with the engagement shoot pics...at all. That could have something to do with the fact that pretty much the only day all summer before the wedding they could do it was the hottest day of the year. They tried to bill us for "extra time" the night of the wedding, and gave us a huge hassle about it. Didn't get a go-ahead before electing to stay and run up the bill. When they emailed a pic for me to use with my wife's bride's gift, they claimed it was in lieu of an entire album! What a crock. One re-touched picture in place of an entire engagement shoot album?!?! I don't know if we inadvertantly pissed them off, but they were NOT cooperative and fun to work with...at all. And considering that the wedding industry is all about customer service and subsequent word-of-mouth, I'm shocked at how unaccomidating and arrogant they acted toward us. Avoid. There are plenty of stellar photogs out there.

Cake was great! Patty was really nice and easy to work with. Very friendly. Had really great alternative to fondant.

A little hiccup in getting the DJ preview CD to us. Lots of cheesy DJ, to be sure. We chose Dave Apman, and he was GREAT. Very fun to work with, very classy (we were at a nice golf club), but still kept people having fun. Dave in particular is a great alternative to a live band at a classy venue.

Kate was super good, and worked great to get my wife's vision perfect and work within our budget. She was genuinely excited about our wedding and getting it just perfect for us. Very nice to work with, incredibly good outcome!

Fantastic for a large, visiting group of family/friends to stay at. Had the rehearsal dinner here, mainly out of convenience. Food was so-so. Nevertheless, there was a ton for guests to do, nice rooms, good bar. Great place for hosting out-of-towners!
