Tara and Russell 's Wedding

Due to the fact that my daughter and her fiancee lived out-of-town, but the wedding was to be in St. Paul added a little more to the "mix" in making arrangements. Having their permission to go ahead and start with picking of the vendors, I interviewed and spoke to many in order to narrow down my search and let the kids have their say in whom they wanted at their wedding. The people that I have listed above did just an excellent job with making our daughter's wedding one that will always be remembered -- in a very positive way! I had lots of fun in planning and coordinating their wedding -- with their input, of course!

A delight to work with! Dan was very personable and bent over backwards to accomodate my daughter and her fiancee when they came into town to get wedding "things" accomplished. The engagement segment was a great way for Dan to get to know my daugher and her fiancee before the actual wedding day. The day of the wedding, Dan was on time -- actually earlier -- to get everything set up and get the day going. He didn't miss any of the details that we told him to capture for that day. The list of photos that he took was AMAZING! So many to choose from! And when the books arrived for my daugher and her husband, they were gorgeous! He really knows what he is doing to capture the memories of that special day! Every time I look at those pictures, it is just as if I am reliving that wonderful day all over again! AND, it brings a tear to my eye....If I had another daughter getting married, I would not hesitate to use Dan again. He was a delight to work with from the very beginning of the photo process to the very end! Thanks Dan, for preserving forever the memories of our daughter's wedding!

Mark was able to provide just the kind of music that my daughter and her fiancee wanted for their wedding! And since they are both musicians, Mark had a tough job fo fill; but he was able to do that perfectly! Everyone at the wedding was up on their feet dancing the entire evening! He added a lot of atmosphere to a perfect evening! Thanks, Mark!

Our temple did an excellent job in getting the sanctuary,Stein Hall, and bride's room available to us for the whole day to use prior to the start of the service. The accessibility was wonderful for all who had a hand in getting the bride ready for her day.

Working with the catering department was so wonderful! Easy to work with, and the day of the wedding they took over so that my concerns were at ease and I could enjoy my daughter's wedding! An elegant event that they helped me arrange! Thank you Barbara and company! An excellent job!
