These folks supplied the inflated, lit-up cones we used for décor at the ceremony.

They were prompt, professional, and price-friendly and the delivery gent even helped with additional lighting issues that popped up with another lighting display of ours at the last minute.

The cones were a great hit – STUNNING in real life and I can’t wait to see the pictures!

The Cake Guys did an amazing job on both the bridal cake and the groom’s cake.

The design for the bridal cake was extremely different than anything we’d seen before, and after merely showing them a similar picture and describing it, they created it perfectly!

The groom’s cake was loaded with chocolate and there wasn’t a single bite left. The bride’s cake was white with strawberry crème filling on one layer and white with amaretto crème on the other layer – both were amazingly moist and delicious.

We’re still getting compliments on the cakes and the slices were HUGE!

We met Melody and immediately LOVED her – she’s hip, fun and really gets to know you and your guests so she puts on the best show possible.

She picked our ‘garter pull’ song and it was hysterical, as neither of us (nor our guests) had ever heard it before, but it was the perfect fit! She timed everything beautifully and really interacted with the crowd.

People are still asking who was the girl who got the parents dancing the Time Warp? She was engaging, handled some other electricity/microphone issues for us, and really rocked the crowd. If someone wanted to do a dance but didn’t know how, she got on the floor and showed them the steps- people loved her level of energy and involvement!

She really made the reception one of a kind!

Caricatures by Ty

Bands/Live Entertainment

Ty did great work and was in high demand!

He made an 11x14 color digital caricature of Ross and I for use at the wedding as a display.

His work was amazing and the folks really loved him.

If you’re getting a caricature artist, consider having two as they’re insanely popular and folks were standing in line TWO hours to get to see him – way too long to keep reception flow going!

Coordinators/Planners

We worked with Tammy for over a year, planning this extravaganza.

She was professional, timely, FUN, and did a great job! She took our basic ideas and somehow managed to get them all to look like they belonged together!

She returned emails/phone calls very promptly, handled all of the vendor payments, scheduling of deliveries and most importantly all of the wedding day headaches!

Her staff took the Starlight Room by storm, setting up 170 place settings with chargers, napkins, menu cards, tables with centerpieces, and added a bunch of additional décor that we wanted.

Can’t say enough about her – if you need someone to make your event stress-free, she’s your girl!

Dennis took the time to get to know Ross and I before the ceremony and incorporated all of our ‘special wishes’ into the ceremony quite well.

There was a helicopter fly-over during the ceremony that messed with his microphone, but he handled it well.

Good job!

Mimi did my makeup (and that of the best man’s wife) and she did an outstanding job!

She used MAC products and even brought a spare lipstick for me to buy, so I could touch up! She was fun, prompt, professional and very reasonably priced.

She also offers air-brushed, but I opted for regular makeup.

The venue is amazing, 2 stories, huge brick patio, and plenty of seating. Already had a dance floor, DJ booth and some cool up lighting.

Sean and Jim (the owners) were amazing, helping us decide which food to serve, what drinks to offer and making the event run smoothly. We had about 19 different types of heavy appetizers, sushi bar, shrimp, crab cakes, late night snacks of pizza and Kobe Beef sliders and offered an open bar with beer, wine, champagne, our signature drink, soda and coffee!

The food was the highlight of the event – huge shrimp, awesome crab cakes, killer Kobe Beef sliders, an amazing fruit/cheese display and much much more! Everyone raved about the food and are still talking about it, 3 weeks later.

They provide such an upscale venue, catering and service and the price was so reasonable!

If you haven’t selected a venue, please see this one as you may never look back! We found it and decided the very same day to book it – it was very cosmo, urban and clubby feeling!

These rooms were great, big and clean.

The front desk staff was friendly and professional and gave out our ‘out-of-town boxes’ to our guests as they checked in.

The complimentary breakfast was above-average, including fresh eggs, toast, bagels, cereal and waffles in the shape of Texas.

Great location for weddings in that area, as it was about a 2 minute walk to the Starlight Room.

They gave us a blocked room rate discount and communicated with us frequently about the people who’d booked and when the block would be released. Great job!
