Our Cake was beautiful, affordable and delicious. The cake Sumi made was exactly what I described to her. She was also very easy to work with and quick to respond to questions.
This little resort off the coast of Belize is the most amazing and beautiful place I have ever been. It was like having our own private island. It wasn't busy at all, there were just a few other guests on the island, there were plenty of places to go and sit and enjoy the scenery. The staff was wonderful and so accommodating to anything we wanted to do. The snorkeling, fishing and mainland were gorgeous, of course after one trip to the mainland we decided that we didn't want to leave the island again because it was such a paradise. We loved it, I absolutely recommend checking it out for your honeymoon! - There are lots of reviews on Trip Adviser, that's how we found it. They will tell you all the same wonderful things, but also that it isn't for everyone, the island definitely runs on "island time" you could easily do nothing the whole time you are there (which is what we wanted) there aren't a ton of planned activities that will keep you busy all day, if you want to do something you pretty much have to ask or go with other guests who have made arrangements with the staff for activities.
Melissa was my favorite vendor, she was amazing to work with and put out a phenomenal product that exceeded everyone's expectations. I can't believe how talented she is!I really can't say enough about how pleased I am with my photos, you have one chance to get it right and only one chance to hire the right person to capture your day and she did it beautifully. I worked so hard to make everything perfect and I'm so glad that I have amazing photos for the rest of my life to re-live the special moments of our day!
This was one of the best decisions I made! The food was fantastic, the set-up was interactive, different and fun, way better than the boring wedding catering companies I was looking into at my budget, and the best part..I paid $12 per person!!! AMAZING, absolutely a great decision. They never asked for a deposit and the "contract" was a simple one page note, not what you would expect or what you would get from other vendors, but I'm pretty laid back, so it didn't bother me. They also showed up about 15 minutes late, not a huge deal, but I definitely noticed.
The quality of their product was good, one of the six heaters we rented didn't work, but they gave us our money back for the rental. Two days before the wedding I changed the size of two of our tables, but the message never got recorded so I got the original order, it wasn't a huge deal, but it would have been nice if it were correct. They offered to come switch the tables out, but at that point I just didn't want to deal with it. This vendor was recommended to me and a little priceyer that some others, but I wanted somewhere I could trust. They were very nice and I did think that the quality of the tables, chairs and linens were very good.
I looked like a freakin supermodel on my wedding day! My makeup was perfect and lasted all through the night, and still looked pretty good the next morning when I woke up! Even my dad who before the wedding couldn't understand why my mom and I were paying to have someone do our hair and makeup mentioned how good he thought the makeup was (this is a HUGE testament to Ashley's talent!)
Hana was so nice, and my hair looked exactly how I wanted it! The only reason I give four not five stars is because my hair started falling out mid-way through the evening. To her defence this was fake hair that she pinned in, not my real hair, so maybe that is why it didn't stay like it should have, but by the time we had our first dances, some pieces were starting to go astray. She was great to work with, and like I said SO nice, and my hair DID look exactly the way I wanted it when she was done with me, I just wish it would have stayed all night.
Ocean View Villas was the perfect location for our wedding. I was a little nervous about the weather because there is no indoor option (we would have had to spend a lot of $ to rent tents) luckily the weather was perfect for us (with the rental of 6 space heaters for the night time) I loved that this was a do-it-yourself venu where I could bring in everything exactly how I wanted. Our close friends and family stayed with us for the whole weekend, it was wonderful having a three day wedding instead of just one evening. All of our guests commented about how beautiful the location was, it truly was a dream come true. Rebeca is the site manager and she was great to work with, very quick to reply to emails, and very very nice.
