We had Krista play the harp as guests were arriving, then for the processional, recessional and cocktail reception. She was wonderful! She's so very talented, and even tracked down our requests so that she could learn them before our wedding.
Felip at Orchid Florist did all of our bouquets, corsages, boutennieres and ceremony flowers. They were so beautiful! He has great style, and creatively incorporated all of my favorite ideas.
Keith from DJK Professionals was our DJ and we were very satisfied with his work. He kept the party moving and played great songs! It was a little difficult to connect with him in the weeks before the wedding, but overall I'm very happy with his work.
I bought my dress here, and my bridesmaids, flower girl and mom also bought their dresses here. Jamie, the owner, is awesome! She's so accomodating and did a great job of making sure I was happy! We had a few snafus along the way, but she took care of everything and it all worked out beautifully!
Corina is a Bare Minerals expert! She did a complimentary pre-wedding trial, and paid attention to what I wanted and what I didn't want. She did 3 of my bridesmaids' and my mom's makeup as well and everyone looked awesome!
Roza and her crew did my hair, as well as that of 3 bridemaids and my flower girl. They all did a wonderful job! We did a practice run the week before, and I sent her pictures of what I wanted. She was prepared the day of and it looked awesome!
Cindy helped me so much...the warehouse didn't send the right color linens 2 days before the wedding and Cindy totally came through with an even better plan for the same price! She made sure I was happy, and it all turned out better than our original plan!
My Gatsby has beautiful designs and very high quality! We had to change our location at the last minute, and they gave me a discount on re-ordering my invitations. They were very accomodating and had great customer service.
While ultimately everything worked out fine, we had a pretty frustrating ordeal with Men's Wearhouse. There was something wrong with 6 out of 7 of the tuxes we ordered. My nephew's tux hadn't even been ordered at all! Again, it was fine overall, but it was annoying having to go back and forth and keep getting things fixed. It should have been done right the first time, especially with all of the measurements they take.
We made labels for our favors, and they turned out great! I would have liked to have been able to change the font, but overall it was not a big deal. You can do everything online, including view your proof. Very easy and convenient, and good quality!
Palmdale Estates is absolutely gorgeous, and is a great value. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because our reception was so short! Even though it was what we agreed on, we felt rushed out of there and I would have liked to have kept the party going. I understand rules are rules...that is the only (slight) complaint that I have!
We had the rehearsal dinner at The Englander, and it was great! We had the private back room, with its own separate entrance, bar and restrooms. It was very nice!
Woodfin was very accomodating, providing shuttle services for guests to and from the wedding. They also allowed us to continue our party in their clubhouse, which was awesome. The wedding suite was beautifully decorated, and they even provided snacks for us! And they allowed my friends to go in before us and decorate some more...they were awesome!
