Chris Leas was a great DJ. We had a cocktail hour before the reception started and he had speakers set up in the distant area from the the reception hall so that our guests could enjoy music all night. He was very responsive and professional as we were planning our music and helped with suggestions for popular songs used for each activity during the wedding/reception.
The music was beautiful. They were able to time the music based on their experience with numerous weddings. Very professional and responsive during planning.
Jane was wonderful. We sat down for our first meeting and she was able to make detailed notes based on our conversation and quote us on the spot. I found this to be extremely professional and a sign of someone who has a passion for their job and has gained much experience in the field. I did meet with other florists who took around a week to get a quote to me after our first meeting. It is a calming feeling and confidence booster when you know your flowers will be perfect before seeing a sample. They are willing to use centerpieces you provide to fill with flowers or you can choose from any of their beautiful crystal, silver, or gold centerpieces with ranging prices and sizes. Jane was always on our side when it came to price on our flowers and even offered some pieces to use as a wedding gift for us with no charge which made me feel like I was working with someone I could really trust and would definitely use in a heartbeat for another event.
Heather and Dana were absolutely amazing. Their experience and ideas are a great help when coordinating a wedding. They meet with you before and discuss every detail. Then provide you with a detailed agenda which they give you and your bridal party. They get in touch with each vendor and confirm drop off's and arrival times. They coordinate transportation of items from the ceremony to reception if you have any. Their positive attitudes and desire to have everything run perfectly smooth without error and without you knowing of error if they come up is necessary, but hard to find elsewhere.
Tiarra was such a professional and kind photographer. She knew the right timing for our photos based on our desires for photo outcomes. We were only allotted an hr in our contract for engagement photos, but she graciously extended the time to make sure we got everything we wanted allowing us to change locations across the city for great back drops. When she received our timeline for the wedding day she offered suggestions on changes or suggestions for the best picture memories possible.
The Suisse Shop had the most amazing taste I have ever had in a cake. Our tasting was great as they had fresh cake samples and filling/icing samples ready for us but also were willing to create any sample we desired to makes sure we got exactly what we desired. Their prices are very competitive with other bakers. Instead of having the bride and groom take home and freeze the top layer, they will create a fresh cake in any flavor for you for your first anniversary. Their employees have positive attitudes making you excited while planning your wedding cake and desserts.
David Woodyard was an amazing Minister. He was fun and helped us enjoy our planning and preparations for the ceremony but was also very professional and helped us feel calm about the outcome. The church is beautiful and a great location for a ceremony.
The Cambria Suites is a clean, spacious hotel that our guests really enjoyed spending time in before and after our events the wedding weekend. There was one staff member at the front desk that acted in a unpleasant manor with my guests and I was no pleased with her not realizing the amount of business we were bringing in to their hotel. We brought gift bags to be given to our guests with snacks, maps, directions, and other goodies which they did were supposed to give out as our guests checked into the hotel. Unfortunately, they did not complete this task well and we were left with numerous left over bags which was a huge disappointment.
