Ashleigh and Shane's Wedding


Our wedding in Escanaba was absolutly perfect. Escanaba is a small town, so the prices are much more reasonable then in most cities. And the view! Escanaba is lined by Lake Michigan so it made our reception extra romantic and are photos goregous with the lake as the back drop! We were married at my home church, Immannuel Luthern; shopped for our Tuxes and everyones dresses and gowns at Dream Day Event Center, finding everything I wanted. We took photos by the Lake at Ludington Park, which also makes a great ceremony place if the weather is nice, and had our reception at the Terrace Bay. Our guests enjoyed a great night of entertainment provided by Mitch Taylor and amzing food. All of our guest stay at the Terrace for very cheap. The only thing I would have done different is have our wedding night at a different hotel as the rooms are not that great or private!

We took went to an all inclusive resort in Ocho Rios, Jamacia. It was actually cheaper then staying in the States and was AMAZING. So much to do, so romantic and you don't have to worry about paying for anything all week. The food was amazing and the beach was goregous.

I wanted expensive looking, gorgegous flowers, and that is what we paid for but did not get! They used a lot of filler plants and carnations even though I specific said no greens or carnations! We also paid for the OWNER to be there to assist with everything which is one of the reasons we booked them, but instead she sent her assistant. The day before when I previewed the flowers they said they could not fix them because they had no flowers left and couldn't get anymore. My bridesmaids flowers were beautiful, I do have to give them that, but mine were half dead! And five tier cake was suppose to be covered in roses, but my cake lady got there to set it up and they were all brusied and darkened. So she had to run to WALMART to buy fresh roses (my cake and those flowers did turn out beautiful thanks to her!) My mother called to talk to the owner after the wedding and the owner wouldn't speak to her. She was also very rude to my cake lady, who was the one who refered Hometown to us!

This is really the best place to have a formal reception in the Escanaba. No other place allows you a beautiful, large hall with the amazing view of Lake Michigan. Guests can take the boardwalk down to the lake, making it romantic for everyone involved! The pictures turnout amazing. They let me do what ever I wanted, It allowed me to create the wedding of the century! The food was SO SO good, I had seconds!
