Somer and Peter's Wedding

Big

Our wedding was incredible. Guests loved traveling to Virginia for the weekend and enjoyed many of the area's historical attractions. Many guests came from abroad and many more have planned return trips already. It's a great place to get married!
We got so many thank yous for using wedding mapper because it gave our guests the ability to prepare for Old Town and get a true feel of where things were which made it easier for them to get around.

Dexter Lake Club Band

Bands/Live Entertainment

Most amazing band... EVER! They came down from NYC, but since some of the members were from DC they didn't charge extra. Not your typical wedding band. They were recently featured in the the New York Times
.. style section.

Photographers

Very sweet and incredibly artistic. Jen did an amazing job capturing the entire day. She uses her creativity to document the expressions and colors and really does a great job. She's also way more affordable than many other photographers.

Videographers

He flew in from Utah. He's the photographer's brother and together they made a fantastic team. Tom is very willing to work with you to make sure he gets the shots you desire. He did a great job not being too pushy or obtrusive, but getting the shots too.

United DC Bus Charter
Washington, DC
Limos/Shuttles

Good to work with before hand. Only get the poor review because a shuttle (1 of 2) broke down. They did credit a portion of the money back and I didn't hear any other complaints (actually heard a few compliments). Also, very good value - they were willing to negotiate.

Florists

The flowers turned out beautiful. It would have been nice to have more interaction/ in person meetings, but the final outcome was great. We had very simple flowers, so perhaps we could have gone with a less expensive venue. Also, there are still some billing discrepancies.

Rentals

Very nice tent and easy to work with staff. The downside is that tents are very, very expensive.

Heidi made a fantastic cake for us. She made exactly what we envisioned and for a fraction of the cost of other cake makers. The cake was delicious too!
