Our wedding turned out beautiful in Steubenville, Ohio. The groom is in the Navy and originially from Springfield VA and was stationed in Newport News VA while the Bride was living in Charleston SC and originially from Steubenville OH. When he proposed they decided that it would be best to get married in the Brides hometown and it was a perfect choice! The Wedding was beautiful and we could not of had it more perfect!
Jay did an absolutly amazing job as our DJ. I planned the wedding from South Carolina and his online planner made things go very smoothly. He kept the music going perfectly with the room atmopshere and everything turned out beautiful.
We went to every florist in town and a few in Pittsburgh before we settled on Thompsons. My parents actually had their wedding flowers done there 27 years ago, the legacy is amazing. We made last minute changes to our flower order due to unforseen situations and they worked with us with no problem. We needed to cancel a couple of things and instead of letting the flowers go to waste they made them into a beautiful arrangement for the head table at the reception! The staff is very friendly and helpful.
For my bridal shower we got the cake from Downtown Bakery and had Kevin and Mines engagement photo on it and it turned out beautifully! That week my mom and me went to a few different bakeries in town looking at and tasting cakes and we ended up back at Downtown Bakery. The other shops said they could not give me what i wanted and on my wedding day that was not an answer i wanted. We called and made an appointment at Downtown Bakery and when i explained to them what i wanted she flipped to a page in her book of previous weddings and there was a cake almost identical to what i wanted! We went over the specifics of how i wanted the cake to be and when i saw it on our wedding day it was even more beautiful than i expected. It was exactly what we wanted and it tasted wonderful!
The ceremony was absolutly beautiful. It's the church I grew up and they really accomediated us since we did plan the whole wedding from South Carolina. They welcomed us with open arms and did everything for the ceremony.
The Grooms family all stayed at the Hampton Inn and they said it was a very nice choice for the weekend. They all traveled from out of town and the hotel was very nice for them!
I loved the Hall. We decorated it the day before the wedding and it looked very nice. It's a little plain and does need a lot of things to make it look special and elegant but the space is amazing. The dance floor was huge and everyone had an amazing time. The only thing I did not like is they did not dim the lights when we had our first dance or during dinner so we were sitting in a fully lit room that was full of candles! That bothered me but my handsome husband took care of it so that was the only downside! We had a formal sit-down dinner and the food was delicious and nothing got messed up!
