We had a Catholic ceremony in Monticello, MN. This was the bride's family church. It was a beautiful ceremony. The church is very beautiful and has some amazing gardens. We took pictures down by the Mississippi River at Ellison Park, which is a GREAT photo opportunity. We had our reception in Big Lake, which is only a few miles from Monticello. It was a beautiful day.
We loved our DJ. He contacted us a week before the wedding to go through all of the details and offered some very good suggestions about things we hadn't even thought of. We very detailed. This company did an extraordinary job matching our preferences with the perfect DJ.
I have never heard SO many compliments about food before. It's been 6 months since our wedding and people still mention how outstanding the food was. Everyone was great to work with, they were very detailed. Delicious food, good prices. HIGHLY recommended!
Very well priced. The pictures turned out beautiful. Heather was very organized and didn't waste any time taking the pictures. We also had an engagement session that was nice and provided for wonderful save the date cards that her husband put together. Our album is in its final processes and we cannot wait to have it!
They did a wonderful job. The reception hall is very beautiful and the staff was very helpful. The hall was rented for an amazing price. We couldn't have asked for a better deal. The staff was very flexible with our requests. I would have to say that they went above and beyond to help us.
The only thing I was disappointed about was we were told that cabs would service our guests back to Monticello, and we informed our guests about this (rather than hiring transportation, which was an idea we had). However, when our guests called the cab numbers given by the bartenders, the cabs were out of Bloomington and the cities. So the parents of the bride and groom were transporting people back to the hotel. So just a heads up if you are thinking of ways to transport your guests.
Nicest hotel in the area. Provided enough rooms that we needed and the guests enjoyed the breakfast.
