Provided excellent service as a day of coordinator at our wedding. She took care of the big and small details so that I could enjoy my day...worth every penny!
I highly recommend An Unforgettable Occasion to any bride looking for a wedding planner that will put you at ease!
Our wedding cake from Michelle's Bakery was to die for! The flavors were wonderful, the cake was delicious and it was beautifully made. The staff are friendly and helpful and the price can't be beat!

We wanted to have our wedding in our hometown and the Mitten Building was the perfect venue for us. We had our ceremony and reception here and everything was an absolute dream- from the first meeting to walking down the aisle. It is family owned and the staff is extremely helpful in any aspect of the planning. This venue is unlike any other and was a perfect setting for our wedding.
We also used the florist at the Mitten Building, Flowers by Jami. She did an absolutely amazing job on our bouquets, centerpieces and all the other floral details. I gave her an inspiration picture and a few ideas I had and she went with it and made it her own- completely blew me away when I saw them...everything I was dreaming of and more!
I highly recommend both of these vendors to future brides!

When we first started planning I was set on having Jim Kennedy as our photographer...his work was amazing! That all changed when we met him in person. I made an appointment for a weekday evening and my fiance and I drove about 2 hours in traffic to get to his studio. When we arrived he wasn't even there yet...so we waited. Once he showed up, he just told us to sit down on the couch...no introducing himself, shaking hands, nothing. He continued to talked to us and explain how the "process" would work and then he showed us some of his work. During the appointment he was making us feel like we were wasting his time. The entire time we were looking at pictures he was just bragging about himself! Once he finished giving himself a confidence boost he asked us what are budget was. When I told him he kind of laughed and said that we couldn't afford him and would have to use one of his assistants (in a very cocky way). My jaw dropped at rude he was being. He then proceeded to tell us that he COULD book our wedding but would regret it because a BIGGER, BETTER wedding would come along! Talk about a slap in the face! After that he started talking about how he didn't need to advertise anymore because he was known all around the world and the calls just came in to him.
He was very unprofessional and extremely rude. I don't care how world wide known he is, there is no reason and excuse to treat a potential customer like that and belittle them. I do not recommend anyone use Jim Kennedy Photographers.
April was the first photographer we met with and we instantly fell in love with her! Her incredible work speaks for itself and we loved her style. On top of that, she was very sweet and down to earth and also put us at ease...we knew that we could definitely be ourselves around her. Just to be on the safe side we decided to meet with other photographers since she was the only one we had met with. All we could do was compare the other photographers to her and they didn't match up! That is when we knew our gut instinct was right when it told us to go with her. We immediately put down our deposit and couldn't be more excited about our decision!
We just had our engagement session with April last month and my fiance and I really enjoyed it! When we saw the photos from our engagement session, we were over the moon...they were incredible! Our friends and family love them as well. We are both looking forward to the wedding and what a great job April will do!
After the wedding update:
April was a miracle on our wedding day- she was professional and efficient yet made us feel relaxed and comfortable. We received so many compliments from family and friends about our photographer and we couldn't agree more with them. We are extremely pleased with our wedding photos, they truly are works of art and you can re-live all of the emotions of the day by looking at them.
