Our wedding was better than we ever could have expected! Getting married in Kansas City was really fun. It was a central location for all of our family and friends, it was our hometown that we love, and we were able to find everything we needed in the area we wanted. The weather in October turned out to be perfect and we even got an 80+ degree day!
We received more compliments on our invitations and programs than anything else. Our invitations were very unique and looked amazing. They were so detailed. Jennifer didn't forget a thing. They were exactly what we wanted. Jennifer handmade all 200 and we couldn't find a flaw on any of them. The envelopes were very unique, and the invitations looked VERY expensive and intricate, with the bonus that they were actually affordable! Jennifer even addressed the envelopes, stamped, and mailed the invites for us! She worked with us very cooperatively to get the perfect design.
We rented a trolley from Kool Nites. It was perfect for the whole wedding party to ride together around the city for pictures and to the reception. It made for a grand entrance, too. The driver knew exactly how to get to all of our destinations, but couldn't stay extra when we asked because he had another wedding booked immediately after us.
Terri has a amazing eye for photography. She is very creative and we loved every single photo (all 3000!) that she took. She spent the entire day with us, photographed before the ceremony, during the ceremony, at three different locations around the city (and wanted to do more but we ran out of time) and at the reception. She moves fast and is good at getting everyone where they need to be. Our only issue was timeliness and follow through with questions, needs before and after the wedding.
We had seen Complete Music at a lot of wedding receptions and loved how outgoing the DJ's were. At our reception, the DJ was very outgoing, got everyone up and dancing, and played great music. He catered to our every need, but was kind of rude to some of the guests. In retrospect, we would have used Complete Music, but chosen a different DJ.
Gomer's was awesome! They were very helpful in deciding what and how much alcohol and other beverages to order, they delivered directly to our reception, allowed us to add to our order throughout the night as needed, and allowed us to return any unopened beverages within three days after the wedding.
Melody was so perfect! She took plenty of time with us, completely let us make the decisions without trying to persuade us one way or another, and understood exactly what we wanted. Actually, at first we didn't know what we wanted, and she got us there and our flowers were gorgeous. We loved everything about the. We ran out of time the day before our wedding to go check them out, but it turned out that we didn't need to because we wouldn't have changed a thing!
David performed Rat Pack music for our guests between our ceremony and reception while we took pictures. He has a GREAT voice, is very interactive with the guests and very entertaining. He brought all of his own equipment and even allowed us to use his sound system later in the evening for other needs (announcing us outside the building when we arrived). We highly recommend David for a very unique touch!
Customer service was great. Family in other parts of the country could easily be fitted where they lived. We were able to manage our wedding party fittings, etc. online. Choices were good. Guys were able to try everything on the week before and have changes made as needed. Groom's shoes didn't fit the morning of the wedding and they were able to get him the right pair before the wedding started! Returning the tuxes was easy, too.
