Overall, out wedding went off without a hitch!
I do have to say one thing though. DO NOT take your wedding dress to Fresh Cleaners in Merced. Four days before my wedding they called and said that there was something wrong with my dress. Turns out that one of the employees had washed my 100% silk dress in bleach. It was unwearable. The manager did refund my money of what I had spent on the dress, including alterations, without asking for the receipts (that's something I guess).
Katrina at Starfish Catering was amazing! She was helpful, insightful, and just did an overall fantastic job. The food, decor, and staff were fantastic!
I cannot say enough good things about Patrick and his wife Katie (they both photographed out wedding). They are such down to earth fantastic people! Not only did they take great pictures (over 3000 of them), but they captured the moments that were important to us! The Crazy Booth was a huge hit!
After the disaster with my first dress due to a dry cleaning error (see wedding overview), Mira was there to the rescue! After the dry cleaner ruined my dress four days before my weddding, I called Mira and told her what happened. She was calm, and helped me to stay positive. She pulled dresses that night that she new were my style and in my price range. I found a fantastic dress that I ended up liking even more that the first. She had me take it to her alterations lady, who alterned it within 24 hours and didn't charge a rush fee considering what happened.
Mira and her staff are awesome!
Deacon Kelly performed out ceremony and did a fantastic job! He was helpful (always taking the time to answer my questions), professional, and had a sense of humor. St. Anthony's did have any restrictions regarding aile runners or a strapless dress.
Due to recent up keep (fresh paint inside and out), the Community Center was very nice. It was clean and provided a large space for a decent price.
