Jacqueline and Nicolas's Wedding


Our wedding went very smoothly. The only thing that went wrong was when we came back from our photos the guests were already seated. We had wanted to go a receiving line, but the caterer insisted on telling everyone to sit before we got there. Oh well.
The weather for our wedding was cold and rainy, so I wouldn't recommend getting married so late in the year unless you can find a good indoor place to have your photos taken.

We were extremely impressed with this company. I found their ad in a booklet they gave out at a wedding show. Their company is based in Burlington, and I live in Oshawa. They drove all the way out here to perform at our wedding.
The wedding has an instant price quote, where yo put in your information and it estimates how much your event will cost.
Once you sign the contract you get your own personal planning website. You can play song samples and put together a time line for your event. I found this very helpful. They use this information that you fill out at the final meting to make sure everything is in order.

Overall I found them very organized, and very helpful. They made lots of accommodations for me, and were very friendly.

Our cake was beautiful! It was exactly what I wanted - and it tasted great!
Susi brought sample cakes to our house for us to try while we went over sizes, flavours, and colours for the cake. I ended up drawing my own design - and she followed it exactly!
Her prices were extremely reasonable. I would definitely go to her for another cake for our anniversary, or for children's baptisms.

This vendor made a lot of accommodations for our wedding. They went farther than they usually go to get to where our wedding was, and since I had small children they upgraded my limo to an SUV limo for free.
The driver was very polite, and came prepared for the rain! We had forgotten our umbrellas, but he had one for us to walk us from the car to the church.

Annie Lane Events and Decor
Whitby, Ontario

The decorations were done beautifully, and I was very happy with them. We rented center pieces from them, as well as table linens, the cake table and the head table. They made everything look exactly how I imagined it would.
The prices were a little high (I believe we paid about $900), but I didn't have any complaints.

The hall was beautiful, but we had some troubles with the caterer. They didn't give us a price estimate until a week before the wedding, even though in the contract payments are scheduled starting months before the wedding.
They also added lots of fees into our bill that we had to call and ask them to take them off. For example, they were charging us for linens that we didn't need because our decorator was supplying them. They also were charging us an extra $15 per bottle of wine for a stocking fee - when they were already charging us much more than what they were worth to begin with.
