It always sounds cheesy when you hear someone say they "couldn't have asked for more" but in our case, there is no other way to describe it. Our wedding was the best! The whole day was tailored to who we are as individuals and as a couple. We have been complimented by so many about what an intimate and unique wedding it was. For us, Labor Day weekend worked out perfectly to have the wedding. The weather was amazing and we couldn't have planned better lighting outside for the pictures. I placed Wedding Mapper on our wedding website and it came in handy for many of our traveling guests. They thought it was a really useful tool, especially since 60% of our guests were traveling in from out of state.
There aren't enough stars to rate Ryan! He is a great photographer. He captured so many fantastic moments from the night. He was able to get the feel of the whole evening but not be intrusive. And he's quick! I dreaded having to do portraits because everyone told me that it takes forever. But click-click-click and he was finished and ready to move on. And not a bad shot in the whole bunch! (at least not due to him, sometimes some people just don't smile haha). I have had the worst time trying to choose which photos to use in our album because there are too many good ones! And I usually hate photos of myself. Ryan in artistic and really has an eye for getting it just right. I have already recommended him to a ton of people and will continue to do so for sure.
The Sandals Grande resort in St Lucia was everything an all inclusive honeymoon should be! The resort itself if beautiful and the staff was friendly and smiling wherever we went. The food was great too, but when/if we didn't like it, it was probably because we were so used to a dish being one way and then found it prepared differently or with non-standard ingredients. Sandals resorts are a bit more expensive than other all inclusives, but I believe it was well worth every penny.
Red roses, white roses and gardenias never looked so good! Marie and Laura are so fantastic and I couldn't thank them enough. I chose the flowers I wanted and left the rest up to their expertise. I was so excited when I finally saw our arrangements and bouquets on the wedding day. And all the rooms smelled so pretty with all the gardenias they used. I didn't even dream it would have been that beautiful!
From the moment I saw this Melissa Sweet dress in a magazine, I knew it was "me". It wasn't sold everywhere so I went to the Wynnewood location in PA. The staff there is so nice and helpful. My dress fit so perfectly when they were finished and it was just gorgeous! I would recommend this shop to anyone. The location was on Wynnewood Rd and it was very small, but I believe they just moved to a larger location in Ardmore, PA on St James Place.
OMG! The cake was the most delicious cake I've ever had. Even the chocolate layer- and I don't even like chocolate! The planning process was smooth and I had no worries. It wasn't decorated exactly to my liking but it was close and I'm ocd so no one else would even have known haha. We had so many compliments on how pretty it was and how amazing it tasted. I can't wait to get our anniversary cake!
Bella made the process very easy and took a lot of weight off my shoulders. I'm so happy we decided to use them. They matched us with the most amazing photographer. I'm in the process of making our wedding album now and I couldn't be happier with it. I can't wait to finally receive it!
Randie Haber is AMAZING!! She was right on top of everything throughout the wedding planning process. The hotel is beautiful and the ballrooms are elegant and just what I wanted for the evening. The staff was great too! We also used the Hall of Fame Lounge for our cocktail reception which was such a great change of venue. We had an issue with that area being remodeled and were worried that it might not be finished in time. Randie worked overtime to recreate what I wanted as "Plan B". But she and the hotel staff came through and we got our lounge. The evening was magical and I couldn't have asked for more.
