Everything turned out amazing for our wedding. Planning from across the country was not an easy task. Using Wedding Mapper was a great resource to research area vendors and reading blogs of other brides-to-be and already those just married was a huge help. We'd highly recommend using it!
Jennifer was amazing. She use to do my hair in college so I had to ask her to do it for my wedding. Her salon is not open on Sundays, but she was happy to accommedate my bridal party, mom, and myself for the day. My hair was gorgeous, exactly what we had discusses and it stayed that way through the entire night! My mother also looked absolutely beautiful!
The owner was awesome, organized everything with my FML, the server was energetic, friendly, and did a great job with a party our size. We had appetizers by the bar then were led to a private room. The place is small, intimate family-owned. Most of what they serve is homemade and everything was exceptional!! Highly recommend this restaurant!!
Camille La Vie is the designer of the dress I wore. It was similar to one I tried on at David's Bridal but must less expensive. They will ship your dress from another store if they do not have your size or color available for no charge and have a layaway option. They do not play games with sizing so they make sure it's the size you need without sticking you with unneeded alterations. At David's they put me in a size 8 which I obviously needed the bust altered, after trying an 8 at Group USA the girl had me try a 6 but noticed still more bunching in the back had me try on a 4. It fit perfect and great thing about a corset back the panel of fabric that snaps in place give you more room. 5-10lbs worth (just in case). These dresses are great for tall girls too, I went from an 8 to a 4 and my dress was still the perfect length and I am almost 6'.
I ordered 175 roses in two colors for under $200. My sister put together my arrangments with me the night before. They arrived Friday afternoon and were plump and ready to go for my Sunday wedding. They are easy to maintain and absolutely beautiful.
We ordered everything but our candy containers from Candy Warehouse. They are equal in price to most of the other online bulk candy but do offer coupons over a certain dollar amount. They are great for candy variety and if you are doing color specific.
The location was beautiful, Martin Putitch, his family, and staff are amazing. I set up post-it notes with my decorations, cake, candy buffet and everything was set up exactly how I imagined. I received numerous compliments on the food and didn't have to spend a fortune per plate. His staff took down everything and had it ready to go at the end of the night, cake plates and silverware washed and packed. No worries.
The location is absolutely beautiful. Using the grand lobby staircase makes quite an entrance. Only negative is no air upstairs they had fans set up but it was humid and rather warm.
