Andy Powell aka Cubbie with Select Entertainment is the best possible choice I could have made for my DJ services. He went way above and beyond to make sure the event went on without a hitch. The crowd absolutely loved him. He also has so many ideas for little "extras" to do throughout the reception to make the event unique. I cannot sing a higher praise.
The auditorium at the Scottish Rite is beautiful, the only thing it, is very dark and this will reflect in the photography. Other issue to watch out for is while my wedding was going on in the auditorium there were 2 receptions happening on the lower floors. It was impossible to keep all of the guests from getting into the others space. Again, a beautiful venue, but not the greatest if you have a wedding in the middle of wedding season and don't want to run into other wedding parties.
Loved the Holiday Inn. Diana Logan was very helpful. We had the top of the tower on the 11th floor and it was a beautiful view of downtown. The food was excellent. We did a buffet style dinner. Months previously we had a tasting and thought the food was great and to our surprise when they made it in bulk for the entire reception it was a lot better. The meat was very moist and tender and the sides were delicious. The prices are fair for the area. The guest rooms aren't the most luxurious and depending if there's events in the downtown area it can be quite busy with sports teams.
