I love Rich! He is so much fun and energentic. He sings amazing as well. I had asked him to sing during our reception and he hoped out on the dance floor and sang just for my new husband and I. I have had so many people tell me how much they enjoyed our reception because Rich kept an eye on what people were dancing to. He kept the songs rolling and stayed right with our crowd. We gave him a lot of room to play with songs as we did not have an entrance song, cake cutting song, or dollar dance song picked out. He told him to just play whatever he thought would work. He was great to work with. I will definately be using him again at future parties.

We had the perfect wedding cake. We did not want a stacked cake. We wanted individual layers. She came up with the "pie tray" display. It was perfect. The flavors were amazing. We had Raspberry devils food, strawberry, lemon and coconut layers. All were covered in a vanilla buttercream. The red accents were the exact same color as my bridesmaids dress. Loved it all. We loved our cake so much, we took the top layer on our honeymoon with us and will order another one on our year anniversary.

Very easy to work with. I changed all of my flowers 4 weeks prior to the wedding. They did not hesitate to accomodate the change. I had to cut my flower budget in half if not more and I chose to change all the flowers instead of just cut the number of blooms. They delivered all the flowers right on time and they lasted for weeks after the wedding. As always, they have exceeded my expectations and I will continue to use them for all my floral needs.

Photographers

I had 2 photographers from this vendor. While I am overall happy with the results, I would have liked more photos. 2 photographers in 8 hours and I got less than 900 photos. While that may seem like a lot of photos, but in 16 hours of shooting that is not a lot of photos. I had asked for certain photos to be taken as we both come from large families and I was told that some of the photos were not possible. I love shoes and so do my bridesmaids. We all had fabulous shoes. I had asked for a shoe shot at the church because the ones taken outside were not turning out and the photographers told me there was not time before the wedding... UMM why not? so why could we not take that photo after the wedding and before the reception. They did get 18 shots of our reception shoes. I had 8 children in the wedding (4 sets of siblings) and I had asked for each set of siblings to be photographed together and I was told it was too hard to get all the kids to cooperate so both photgraphers chose to not try and get those photos. I asked for a family photo of my new husband's family and somehow it got missed. We have pictures of us with his parents but not with his sister, brother in law and nieces.
In the grand scheme of things, it is fine, but I am still a little disappointment in the quality and amount of photos I received. I was promised at least 1000 photos from 1 photographer and I didn't even get that with 2 photographers.
I love photographers and I even had my own camera at the wedding snapping shots (not that my photograhers caught me with my camera...), so I am disappointed in the amount of photos.
