Taylor and Matthew's Wedding

452442

We had a FANTASTIC wedding! Special thanks to the wedding guild and the musicians at Signal Mountain Presbyterian. Our friends and family say they have never seen a more beautiful service.

Our reception was awesome! We had a super cool band, in a super cool location (complete with llamas and exotic chickens (ha!)) and lots of fancy wedding day libations!

We had some planning issues - see our reviews of Goetz Catering - but other than that, we had a great day!

AMAZING! She was so professional. So much fun. She even got my husband excited about photo sessions! She was sooo patient with me! I think I must have called 1000 times asking about our photos - how'd they turn out? wehn will they be ready? can you send us a sneak peak? and she never even got annoyed. She really helped to make our wedding day!

Patty at the cake boutique failed to show up for 3... not 1, not 2 BUT 3 of our appointments! She gave us the wrong cakes to taste. She was super disorganized and dealing with them was EXTREMELY stressful. However, on the day of our wedding the cakes arrived on time, looked great and tasted great.

I will not use them again, though. To big a headache.

Coordinators/Planners

One of Goetz's selling points was that they would provide a wedding coordinator to assist with planning the day-of details.

Well, It turned out to be a disaster.

I sent the planner a time line and a list of requests. She did not follow it. She wasted 20 minutes of our reception trying to stage a terribly lit arial shot for our photographer and then yelled at our guests when they werent cooperative - i had SPECIFICALLY asked her not to stage that photo. She wasted another 15 minutes when she gathered all of our guests for the cake cutting WITHOUT NOTIFYING THE PHOTOGRAPHER - who was taking photos of individual families at the time.

She LOST our cake cutting service. She LOST our box of photo booth supplies.

She actually yelled at two of my bridesmaids who - in search of the ladies room - wandered into an "off limits" area of our venue.

I really did have a wonderful wedding day! It was romantic and sweet. My husband and i remember it fondly and regularly relive it through our photos. However, I was more stressful than it should have been... because of Goetz Catering. Needless to say, I was super disappointed and will not EVER use them again.

Bands/Live Entertainment

Stellar show! We couldnt have asked for better musicians! They were fun, energetic and engaging! We love the British Invasion genre, so they were a natural choice. BUT they played fun bluesy tunes and some top 40 so as to reach our whole guest list. THEY WERE AMAZING!

Invitations

I live in New Orleans, but am from Signal Mountain. I had my invitations designed and printed here. But, they will design, print and ship anywhere. Sterling - the owner of Rudman's - was a FANTASTIC resource. Not just for invitation etiquette. I wish i could add a 6th star!

Officiants

Dr. Duddly did an AMAZING job. We were given the option to select a standard ceremony or design a unique ceremony for our nuptials. The wedding guild at SMPC is UNBELIEVABLE! I had no worries! They were so organized and calm. I felt lucky to have them!

Florists

Our florist lost her business in the tornados that hit North Georgia at the end of April 2011. We were totally freaked out b/c our wedding was 3 weeks later. So i jumped on the internet, read a couple of tutorials and decided that i needed to just do the flowers myself (as all of the other florists we spoke to were either booked or going to charge us exorbident "late" contract fees). The people at 50 flowers walked me through every step of the process: Planning, Ordering, Recieving, Storing, Care and Arranging. My husband and I are hosting an engagement party for our dear friends in two months, I will use fiftyflowers.com for all of the flowers and decor.

Caterers

NIGHTMARE. TERRIBLE. RUDE. DISHONEST. UNPROFESSIONAL. DISORGANIZED and DISINTERESTED. I cannot say enough bad things about Ron Swafford and his sister Eileen. I had a wonderful wedding day, but it surely wasn't because of them. I have NEVER dealt with anyone more tactless and upsetting than the two of them. They are my singular wedding day regret!

Goetz was the preferred caterer of the venue that we'd chosen. My friends all told me that Goetz was so aweful that I should change venues. In retrospect, I really do wish I had listened to them.
