Our wedding had a 'Celtic Inspired' theme -- as such, it was very difficult in this area to find things in that feel. We either had to design them and make them, or order them from other places.
Southern Strings is a trio of musicians (Hammered Dulcimer, Flute, Guitar). They were very affordable, and added a wonderful ambiance to our ceremony. We picked music from their repertoire, and they even learned a couple of songs upon our request. We are definitely happy we decided to use them.
Great communication. Beautiful work. WONDERFULLY YUMMY cake. Plus, they are one of two bakers in town who do diabetic wedding cakes (in four flavors, no less...the other vendor, Icing Illusions, only offers one flavor). Price was great, and they were wonderful.
Walmart may not be the most exciting caterer in the world, but their price point is great. The food is good and it is beautifully arranged. Don't be afraid to go with what you can afford! We had no complaints among our guests - of course, I was also trying to cater to the following diets: diabetic, gluten-free, cardiac, vegetarian, and vegan. Walmart trays allowed that within budget and with no one feeling like they had 'special food'
My flowers were wonderful. I've wanted Stacey to do my flowers since I first saw his work, and my budget was designed around that. I was NOT disappointed.
Lucky was absolutely wonderful. I had to do a last minute photographer change 2 months before the wedding -- and they were wonderful to work with. I did not feel as if I was working with second choice -- I felt like I should have picked them in the first place.
We're members, but we love the building too. It was designed in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, and the interior is beautiful. The picture to the side was taken after we had undecorated the sancturary, and shows my flowers. UUFM will do weddings for any couple. Seating capacity is 100 to 125
The Springhill was absolutely wonderful. One of my guests said it was her best hotel experience ever -- and she travels a lot. Where there were problems, Springhill resolved them immediately and with a smile. The continental breakfast actually had staff helping to prepare and clean up your meal. We'd use them again if we planned an event, and we'd recommend them to anyone who was looking to book a block of rooms.
UUFM's venue was the Fellowship Hall. It can seat 100 people, possibly more. We had 85 people, plus dance floor and buffet station. The UUFM does allow alcohol to be served in the Fellowship Hall (but will require insurance from the couple)
