Downtown Norfolk was a great place to get married. All of our guests were from out of town and Norfolk offered lots to do in a small, clean, safe area. The Half Moone Cruise and Celebration center was the perfect venue.
I spent hours preparing a playlist that the DJ didn't stick too. Also, he kept cracking jokes and talking like it was his personal stand up performance. He was exactly what I didn't want in a DJ.
Guest attending the wedding would give Catering Concepts 5 starts, but there were a lot of little things that went wrong that they didn't know about. Wrong foods, missing chairs, etc. Also, after the fact they tried to charge us for an extra hour that we had to haggle over and they actually did accidently charge our credit card twice for the whole thing. However, this company also does decor and that part was AMAZING! The most beautiful flowers and arrangements that I've ever seen. So, yes, I would recommend this company, just make sure you get everything in writing ahead of time because they tend to forget things mentioned by mouth.
Bryan was an awesome photographer and I would recommend him in a heartbeat. He was professional and creative. We recieved a few samples of the photos within a few days and they were top notch. Great use of light and camera effects. His style is slightly modern without being too over the top. We love everything about this guy!
Although our actual photographer was Bryan Myhr, he was contracted through a company called Bella Photography. Bella Photography is great and much less expensive for the same service (we used them for videography too). They are really on top of their stuff.
The venue itself it absolutely beautiful (we only used the rotunda part) and the staff was beyond great. They treated us and our guests like VIP's.
