We had a wonderful wedding day! We lucked out with great weather in November and were able to take pictures outside. The whole day went very smoothly and we would recommend all of the vendors we used.
We loved Rick and Jodi Bella! They were very easy to work with and to have around our entire wedding day. They gave us so many great shots of the ceremony and reception - it's hard to choose which ones to put in our album. They did not miss any moment or any angle of the entire day. They also did a great job on our engagement photos, which we took in Chicago a few months before our wedding.
Bernie was our DJ and he did a great job. He pronounced everyone's name perfectly in the introductions - and some were very difficult. He played most of the songs from the playlist we chose in advance.
I got my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses here. Everyone at the shop was great to work with and very helpful. Both orders arrived on time and completely correct.
Most of the night went smoothly, but there were a few details we confirmed in advance which were not followed through on. Special dietary restrictions were noted clearly on seating chart but not served until the guest asked. We bought personalized cocktail napkins and they only used them for the cocktail hour (in the art gallery) and didn't bring them in for the dinner so we had tons of extras.
