Our first wedding anniversary is coming up, and now more than ever my husband and I appreciate all the skill and effort that Linda and Peter put into our your photography. Looking back, we are even more certain that they were the perfect choice to photograph our engagement and wedding.
The care and time they took during our engagement shoot went above and beyond, and provided us with the best photos we could ask for of the time before we were married. And the photos they took on the wedding day included many of the little details that made our day special and unique to us. They truly captured the feel of our wedding as a whole, and every time we look back through the photos we will be able to experience our wedding day all over again.
As the icing on the cake, it was a real pleasure working with Linda and Peter. They made us feel at ease and comfortable, which showed in our pictures. You get your money's worth with Linda and Peter, and I would highly recommend them!
We chose Sweet Grace to design our wedding cake based on the excellent reviews they received, and they did not disappoint! Working with the owner was a pleasure. She answered my emails very promptly and was always very open when discussing ideas and working with our budget. She allowed us to customize as many details as we wanted, and was also great about pulling together my inspiration photos and turning them into my dream cake. This cake almost looked too beautiful to eat. But when we ate it on our wedding day, I forgot all about that because it was also the most delicious cake we ever tasted. We had red velvet with cream cheese icing, and it was unbelievable! I would highly recommend Sweet Grace to anyone.
With our first wedding anniversary coming up, my husband and I want to say that now more than ever we appreciate the unique values that The Woman's Club of Englewood has to offer. We have had friends and family tell us that ours was one of the most special and unique wedding venues they have attended. It was important to us to be able to bring in our own caterer and personal decor, and this venue allows the opportunity to make your wedding truly your own.
My husband and I used vendors that were recommended by The Woman's Club on their website: Rustic Food Catering, Linda and Peter photography, DJ Mike Narvaez (ANS Entertainment), and Metropolitan Plant and Flower Exchange, all of which I would highly recommend. Our cake was from Sweet Grace Cakes in Haworth and was absolutely perfect.
I would definitely recommend using the venue's fairy lights on the ceiling and the stage, because they made our wedding feel so warm and welcoming. Maria met with us as often as we needed to prepare for the wedding. She shared wedding ideas from her amazingly detailed memory that helped us narrow down ideas for our own. Maria also offered us candle holders and other decor that was donated from past weddings, which was very helpful and also saved us a little money.
It can be quite a challenge to find a venue that will accommodate only 70 guests on a Saturday evening in the summer, so The Woman's Club was a perfect choice for us. We were able to set up and decorate on the Friday afternoon before our wedding, and we had the venue to ourselves all day on Saturday to get ready. It was so nice not having to be rushed by another wedding booked directly before or after.
Maria and Thom went above and beyond to make our wedding day go smoothly. When it started raining before the ceremony, they didn't give up and move everything inside. Instead, they covered equipment and worked in an efficient and organized manner that enabled us to still have our ceremony outdoors when the sun came out just in time. During the reception, there was a storm outside and the power flickered, but they had a backup generator that kept the music pumping and the party going. (Although all the candles created nice mood lighting when it went dark!)
Our guests are still telling us how much they enjoyed our wedding, and we have to thank Maria, Thom and The Woman's Club of Englewood for helping us create such a special day full of warm memories.
