An extremely nice suite with a king-size bed, flat screen television in the bedroom, and bathroom, Jacuzzi tub and his and her bathrobes. It was a luxurious wedding night hotel, and the staff was very congratulatory once we arrived. I would definitely recommend.

I knew exactly what I was looking for when I went into the travel agent, but wanted the assurance of an agent for my Honeymoon. The agent was great, and even mentioned that if she found a better price before my trip, she would pass that on to me. There were some flight issues which were beyond their control, but when I called them about it, they tried to accommodate us on another flight. Overall, I don’t think a travel agent is necessary, but Going Places was a good choice.

I reserved a 14-passenger limo for 5 hours. The price was reasonable. I specified that I needed the driver to pick up the groom and groomsmen first, and take them to the church. Then the limo was supposed to pick up me and the bridesmaids and take us to the church. After dropping off the groomsmen, the limo driver just sat in the parking lot of the church. It wasn’t until one of the groomsmen said “don’t you have to go pick up the girls?” that the driver realized this. Once the ceremony was over, the 14 of us climbed into the limo together – it was a little tight, so I’m not sure it was even a 14-passenger limo. The driver was just okay; nothing fancy, not rude, but not friendly. I would not recommend this vendor.
Kamran was referred to me by my wedding photographer. He was doing freelance work, so I was able to get the wedding video at a very reasonable price. Kamran understood exactly what I wanted, stayed throughout the entire wedding and reception, and turned out a great product! In addition to my wedding video, he also scanned over 200 photographs for the Rehearsal Dinner PowerPoint presentation. Kamran went above and beyond. I was thinking about just skipping the videographer, but I definitely glad I didn’t.

Hella’s was a great place to have the rehearsal dinner. We had a private room for about 40 people, and there was plenty of room. The “room” is partitioned off, so it’s technically not a “private room” but it was nice, nonetheless. The guests had a choice of 3 entrees – their crab cakes are incredible. They even provided a video screen for an LCD presentation. The wait staff was friendly, and responsive. The only minor inconvenience was that you had to walk through the entire part of the restaurant to get a drink at the bar. Overall, a great place.

My reception was held at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Depending on the room you select, the room rental fee is waived as long as you meet the food/beverage minimum. The on-site coordinator was great, the chef gives you a personalized food tasting, and the staff was accommodating. The day before the wedding, I dropped off everything from place cards, table runners, favors, and everything was perfectly placed the day of the wedding. My guests enjoyed themselves at this unique location to have a wedding.
Larry was by-far, the best wedding vendor I worked with. Depending upon which package you select, engagement pictures are included. Larry really takes the time to get to know you before the wedding, and welcomes any suggestions and ideas you may have for the day of the wedding. I took pictures after the ceremony at 3 separate locations, and Larry was extremely accommodating. My fee included 2 photographers (Larry was one of them) for the duration of the wedding day (no time restraints) and I got to keep all of my proofs. In selecting photos for the album, Larry was extremely helpful with the layout, and best pictures for the book. My album turned out great and I would recommend his work to anyone!
After several hours of online research, I selected Rexcraft for my invitations. They were very reasonably priced, and also include free envelopes for the mistakes! Everything arrived within a week of ordering, and the order was perfect. The invitations were beautiful, the quality was excellent and I would order from them again.

This was a very ordinary hotel. If you are looking for a convenient place for your out-of-town guests to stay, this would be an adequate hotel. In terms of hotel blocks, I made the reservation of 10 rooms approximately 8 months in advance, and locked down a group rate. When I went back to confirm (before I sent out the wedding invitations with the hotel information) there was a new group sales contact, and they had no record of my room block. When I told the new contact what my quoted rate was, they couldn’t believe that it was so low. Ultimately, they honored the group rate, but the disorganization was frustrating. Fortunately only 10-15 of my guests ended up staying there.
Jason Walsh personally DJ’d my wedding. Approximately 1-2 months prior, we began inputing songs we “must play” “do not play”, etc… into his online song database. This was extremely helpful in planning songs for the reception. Jason was entertaining, engaging, and my guests had a blast! After the wedding, Jason created a CD with the father-daughter dance, mother-son dance, and our first song – to remember the event. I highly recommend Jason Walsh Entertainment.
