The Susie Hansen Latin Band provided the entertainment for our wedding reception, and they totally made the party. We wanted our reception to be lively, fun, & a full-out dance party, and the band made it happen. We have received so many compliments on the band from our wedding guests. They were pricey, but hearing how much fun our guests had at our wedding made it was totally worth it.
My husband and I met with Susie a few weeks before our wedding to go over our reception time line and create an itinerary. Susie made sure that our reception followed our established time line. I think this was one of the most helpful parts in making sure that our reception ran smoothly. Our wedding day-of coordinator did make some comments to us about Susie not being very flexible or communicative. As far as we know, Susie knows her band is very good and they know how to deliver. She knows what she's doing and how to keep guests on their feet. Making sure that our guests had a blast was the most important thing for us. Since they achieved our goal, we give Susie Hansen Latin Band 5 stars.
We hired Phoebe to do our wedding day photography knowing that she was just starting out in the wedding photography business. Having seen her previous work on her website, we had total faith that she would do a great job, and she did not disappoint! In fact, we were blown away by her work. Phoebe's stronghold is definitely her attention to detail and her fun personality. Her smile and friendly personality were contagious and it really showed in our pictures.
Aside from her actual work, she was a great vendor to work with. She responds to emails quickly, she's professional and reliable, and was very quick with getting photos back to us. (She posted tons of pictures of our wedding day on her blog by the time we returned from our honeymoon!) You can tell that Phoebe has a passion for what she does. She will definitely be very successful as a wedding photographer. We couldn't recommend her enough.
