Overall we had a great experience with these guys. They were very nice and easy to work with. We got a really great deal for booking them at a bridal show at the Lansing Center too. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because they didn't play the right song for our recessional or the best man/maid of honor intro/entrance. Sorry guys but I was pretty bummed about that.
Tami from Paradise Getaways was extremely helpful. She hosts informational meetings at Fantastic Finds in Lansing from time to time. Check one out if your interested in all-inclusive awesomeness!! :)
Cathy is such a great person! We "clicked" instantly. My husband and I aren't very religious so she made the ceremony all about love and the joining of our families. It was perfect!
We secretly took dance lessons for about 6 weeks before the wedding. Shelley was very patient with us as we stumbled our way across the studio...by the end of 6 weeks we had a choreographed dance memorized for our first dance as husband and wife. Everyone was so surprised!
I absolutely love this salon. I go here normally for my hair services. My gift to my bridesmaids was to get their hair done the morning of the wedding. I made appointments for us at he same time and brought in breakfast from Panera (in the mall across the street). The salon was just small enough that we pretty much had it to ourselves. It was really nice and the photographer got a ton of great pictures.
Overall I had a pretty good experience with this dress shop. The staff was super helpful and the alterations were great. The only problems I had was that my dress wasn't ready at the time they said it would be...so my sister went out to pick it up the day before the wedding and they were just steaming it. They said to come back in 30-45 minutes but we didn't have any time because of the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. I ended up picking up the dress the next morning after my hair appointment. Not a huge deal but I could have used that time for something else.
Our wedding was amazing! We lucked out with perfect weather and the venue is gorgeous. The pictures on their website don't do it justice. We heard a ton of feedback that everyone loved to food too. The only drawback was that one of the serving staff made inappropriate comments to a few of our guests but Beth (the coordinator at Lakeview) personally apologized to the guests (...and hopefully fired that server because she did not belong in a customer service occupation). Aside from that, everything was fantastic and I'd recommend this place to any couple that's looking for an outdoor wedding and indoor reception without traveling between venues.
