Percy was so great! I'm writing a very late review, our wedding was June 11, 2011. We absolutely loved working with Percy! We met him at his house and he showed us a show a real production in his basement!! He asked us what kind of music we liked and in less than 5 minutes he had the genres of music playing, mixing well, lighting going and we were just way too impressed!
The day of the wedding he was wonderful, one of the mics ws not turned on when my hostess was reading the scripture however he turned it on right at the most important time. Everything was just fine.
At the reception he was entertaining and lively and I was so impressed with his professionalism and correct pronunciations of our names. :)
I would highly recomment Percy for your wedding!
Sorry for the late review! We used Vicky Johnson and team for our wedding June 11, 2011 and I must say she was wonderful! Vicky saw the list of vendors I wanted to use and told me what she knew about those vendors and even suggested vendors I had never heard of. She is very well known, therefore she was able to set up vendor tastings and meetings. You could tell she knew these vendors well because they were all so at ease with her.
She helped us plan our wedding budget and had to remind me on occasions to stick to the plan (I was drifting lol). What can I say wedding planning was so much fun, money almost became an afterthought lol.
I should have reminded her but Vicky did forget to pick up my husband's groomscake from SugarBaker's to bring over for the rehearsal dinner/husband's bday celebration however she quickly made up for it by presenting my husband another cake. At first I was alittle disappointed however it was all good because we presented it at the wedding and then took it the leftovers home. That truly was the only glich we had with her.
She was wonderful the day of the wedding, the florists forgot to bring and make our flower girl purses so she handled that and didn't look like she broke a sweat. Thankfully, they came back with the purses completed because I probably would have been so disappointed.
We both love Vicky because of course she is/was professional the entire time. her staff were great and we are very grateful for God bringing her into our lives and helping us celebrate the best moment of our lives! I highly recommend using Vicky!

We used Men's Wearhouse for our wedding. I really do not have many complaints. We had groomsmen in different states so this was the best way for us to keep everyone on the same page. Everyone looked great at the wedding and we continue to use MW for occasional dinners when my husband needs to rent a tux at the last minute.
I do wish that Men's Wearhouse would allow the bride and/or groom to check and see the status of the people in the wedding party. Perhaps in the near future.
I love the staff at Maya Couture! They were wonderful from the beginning of my planning process of our wedding. We were married last June but engaged for 2 yrs prior and they opened my eyes to the wedding planning period.
Maya Couture offered trunk shows and multiple vendor shows. Although I did not get married VA and got married in MD, they helped me to understand what I really could offer my guests during the reception.
I wish them all the best, what a great boutique! I recommend them to anyone getting married.

I LOVE Sugarbakers! Our wedding was so pretty and the taste was soooo good! People still talk about how good our cake was. The groom's cake was great as well they did such a great job on the design and the red velvet cake was heaven! We had so much groom's cake that we took it to our place of employment the week after our wedding and EVERYONE in the office tore that cake up!
We just recently celebrated our 1 year anniversary and picked our top tier up without a problem!
I just love this bakery and will forever recommend Sugarbakers!
I had booked this vendor for my wedding and initially was very pleased with my consultation. Carolyn did a wonderful job on my consultation and I used the make up look she did for our engagement pictures that same day. However I was very disappointed there after with her.
The night before my wedding she had a friend and co worker contact me to let me know she had a family issue and would not be able to do my make up the DAY of our wedding. I cannot fault her for needing to attend her family issues however I was upset that I personally did not receive a phone call to follow up after the wedding event or to receive a discount.
She was not able to attend the wedding and do my make up the day of but she did get her friend to take her place. Her friend was very professional and was really good. I had never seen her work or had previous knowledge of her friend before my wedding date. I was very pleased that she was there to save the day! If I could remember her name I would credit her. I was further disappointed because Carolyn had failed to mention to her back up/friend that I wanted my back shoulder tattoo covered in make up and because her friend did not have the cover tattoo make up with her it was not covered.
At the end of the day, I was very glad and grateful that her friend showed and my tattoo was the least of my concerns that day. Hopefully in the future, Carloyn will at least follow up with her original clients to make sure everything went well.

We were married at the Newton White Mansion June 2011. As a young child, I had always dreamed of being married at this location once I saw a family friend married there.
The staff was so wonderful and helpful. We enjoyed working with Jackie and the crew the day of the wedding. We had planned for an afternoon wedding at 4PM and the skies were completely clear!
In the morning the day of the wedding it had rained and I was so nervous that our original plan of having an outdoor wedding was going to be ruined - however the rain cleared the clouds and the day was beautiful! The staff was going to go ahead and rearrange the chairs for our plan B due to the rain however I asked them if we could wait a while longer and they did without hesitation. I will never forget the laid back attitude and reassurance of the staff that day, they actually made my day :)
The only downfall of the process was working with Gina. She was not exactly friendly and personable but Jackie and the rest of the staff made up for her.
Thanks again NWM!

We absolutely loved working with Sharone and his team at Davinci's florist. The creativity and professionalism that they showed was great. Everything we envisioned for our wedding was great and they really pulled it off to be a wonderful wedding day. The delivers from their store had forgotten to grab our flower girl purses when they delivered the flower bouquets but they quickly went back and all was good. I was so happy to have worked with them, we would definetly recommend them for any event especially a wedding.
Thank you again Davinci's Florist.

We were married June 11, 2011 in MD and we absolutely love Blue Sky Films!
We worked with Samantha during the planning process and Neil shot our wedding! Neil was personable and wonderful and a real delight to have on our wedding day. To be honest I forgot he was even there lol. The footage he took from our wedding was wonderful and I am so happy that we chose Blue Sky Films for our videography services. We received our DVDs including Blue Ray and LOVED our wedding highlight video.
Thank you again Blue Sky Films - I would definetly recommend them for any event you plan to hold!
I found my bridesmaids and hostess dresses from the Dessy Group. The dresses were gorgeous and looked elegant and regal. In addition, we purchased the flower girls dresses from Dessy and they were perfect. We added a purple sash on the flower girl dresses to give the ivory dresses a splash of color and they were beautiful!
We had no problems with the dresses and were completely pleased with how everyone looked in them.
I would recommend any bride to look at the Dessy Group for bridesmaids, hostess and flower girl dresses any day! The fabric and look of the dresses are so pretty that they can be worn again not just only for our wedding.
