We had the wedding of our dreams at Bent Mountain Lodge. The mountains were picturesqe and the leaves were just beginning to change. It was a beautiful day! I couldn't imagine a more perfect setting for a wedding. Jesse and Bonnie were pleasant and joined us for the rehearsal dinner and wedding. They were easy to work with, which is great since planning a wedding can be a very stressful situation. Everything was perfect and we all had a blast for the weekend!!!
Evie at Wildflour was absolutely lovely! She listened to me and, after adding some much needed input and advice, presented the cake I wanted! It was layered with different flavors and fillings (4 teirs) and was the most beautiful cake I had ever seen! My guest thought so as well. The price was pretty much right on what we discussed. She will NOT disappoint!
Henry worked with us on pricing and a variety of food we wanted for our rehearsal as well as reception dinner. We had a buffet style and it was set up beautifully! No, it wasn't all bbq!!! He did a couple of dishes he didn't usually make and it tasted fantastic! He and his staff is wonderful! If you're on a budget, Henry is definitely the one to call! Good luck!
Mr. Hudson was a very important part of our wedding! We had an outdoor wedding, which he had no opposal to. We met with him a couple of weeks before the wedding and then again at the rehearsal. We went over the verses and vows and performed exactly how we pictured it. It was a beautiful service!
Other than Ann Elizabeth, I was not happy with David's Bridal at all. Apparently, the Roanoke store has issues that the other David's Bridal stores do not have. The bridesmaid who went to this store had a very rude and unprofessional assistant, but the other bridesmaids went to other sites in other states and did not have any issues. In fact, they said the women were very helpful, polite and went out of their way to assist them with their needs. My mother, future mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law and myself went to Davids for the final fitting. They were disgustingly dismissive and one of the ladies actually rushed us out of the door!!! If you plan on going to this site for your dress, I suggest dealing with Ann Elizabeth ONLY!
Antoine did a beautiful job on our photos. His price was reasonable and we got 2 cd's with about 900 photos. That's the package we chose, but he has many more and he will work with you! He's professional but he also had fun and joked around with the wedding party. I definitely recommend him!
We stumbled upon this breathtaking venue completely by accident! Searching and searching and looking and looking---finally a venue that had an actual view and lodging! The owners are very nice. Jesse is kind of stern and stoic, but he turned out to be a teddy bear in the end....but follow the rules. His wife, Bonnie, is wonderful and is willing to help figure out certain aspects of your wedding, although she is not a planner and they dont provide that service. You can almost plan your own wedding at this place and just pay a friend or family member help with the rehearsal,etc. I highly recommend this site for your outdoor wedding!!!
