Nancy and Robert's Wedding


We had an intimate wedding with 38 guests. Our ceremony was at Dow Gardens, it was very pretty, but the garden has many restrictions. Our reception was at Valley Plaza Resort, the staff was very helpful, the food was average. A very very nice feature was the 24 hr hot tub! After an exhausting day, it was so nice to hang out in the hot tub with my new hubby! We highly recommend taking wedding photos at the Stratford woods. Those were some of the most fun photos!

Chris was very professional. He does not drink or smoke or eat during our event. He works with my wedding coordinator to make sure every agenda gets excuted right on time with the right people. It was such a stress free day for me, because he was there worrying about everything and getting everyone in their places. He has a great sense of humor, his complimentary "love story" feature just really puts the cherry on top. Everyone loved our reception and all the fun things he does.

This photographer was average. Very affordable but the work was just OK, not excellent.

Judy at Austin's Florist was very creative and patient. She was willing to work with our budget and creat the same look I wanted out of a magazine for LESS!! She was such a warm person who was so pleasant to work with. Her work made our wedding extra special!

Darcie was helpful in obtaining discounts for her couples. I would have liked a little more communications months leading up to the wedding. i wasn't very aware what was all being done or what still need to be done.

Great great service. I gave her a picture of a cake from a celebrity wedding from a magazine. She replicated it perfectly. White cream cheese icing was delicious and matched the white wedding theme. We loved it! They are now our official cake place for birthdays wedding anniversaries and everything else!

The location was beautiful. But it has so many restrictions. You can only have weddings at one specific spot, you can't use carpet for the aisle... it's beautiful, but it doesn't have a lot of accessible spots for a bride with a big dress. I thought having a wedding indoor would be alot more convenient.

The hotel was so great for having a 24 hours pool and hot tub. I can't tell you how nice it is to get in the hot tub after a FULL day of fun and dancing to relax at 2 am when finally everyone has gone home. The team at the great hall was very helpful, friendly and just so patient. We change our minds on our setting several times, they just handled it so well! The food was good.
