Overall a great experience with A Music Plus! They played everything we asked them to & nothing we didn't want to hear! Our DJ checked in with us a few times during the reception to make sure we were satisfied. He pronounced everyone's name right, was attentive, & didn't try to draw attention to himself. I highly recommend A Music Plus!!

Davids Bridal Colorado
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I visited both the Ft. Collins store & the Westminster store & although the staff in Ft. Collins was much more friendly & professional, the selection of bridesmaids dresses was much greater in Westminster. We bought my dress, 6 bridesmaids dresses, 2 dresses for my honeymoon, the mother of the bride's dress & a $99 dress for my "trash the dress" shoot & all arrived quickly & in perfect condition. I am satisfied with David's Bridal, that are extremely convenient & my wedding looked beautiful!

Dawn Sparks
 
( 4.8 / 5.0 )
I had Dawn take bridal portraits/Rock the Dress type pictures for me, after my wedding. I contacted her on 9/20/10 & had the shoot 1 week later! She was very willing to squeeze me into her extremely busy schedule. I sent her a bunch of inspiration pictures & she was very receptive to my vision for the shoot. Dawn was professional, fun to work with & is extremely talented at what she does! She posted 3 "teaser" pictures on her blog the same day as my shoot & I had the disc of all my images about 3 weeks later. Overall, I definitely recommend Dawn Sparks for any of your photography needs :)

I cannot say enough good things about Danielle! She was an absolute joy to work with & I am sad the wedding is over & I don't get to work with her anymore! Danielle was extremely reliable, hard working, professional, punctual, & totally organized. She went above & beyond the duties of a "day of" coordinator & she embraced all of my crazy ideas & very specific details, even though it kept adding more & more work for her : ) She definitely brought my wedding vision to life & I am so grateful I found her! If you are on the fence about hiring a DOC, just do it! Danielle will take care of everything from start to finish & you can just relax & enjoy your day.

I am extremely satisfied with my finished cardbox, it is gorgeous! I ordered in January, however, & did not receive it until the day BEFORE my July wedding! I understand that there were some circumstances out of their control, but I wish they didn't cut it so close to the wedding date to design the boxes. Overall I would recommend them, because they came through in the end & delivered a great product. I do think the boxes are a bit on the pricey side, but my guests were very impressed by this unique detail.

Dawn was an absolute joy to work with! She is so talented & my bouquet was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I received so many compliments on my centerpieces too. She has really great prices, is super fast at responding to emails, is very knowledgeable & went above & beyond to make my wedding beautiful. I highly recommend Hillside Consultants to other brides in Colorado, or for anybody planning a special event which requires gorgeous flowers :)

Leavitt Music
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Although I was only able to hear 2 songs performed by the Cloud 9 String Quartet (because I was hiding out before the ceremony), I received numerous compliments from my guests. Everyone loved the variety of music they played & I am so glad I found them! The Leavitt's were easy to work with & very professional. They also told me I looked beautiful & they loved my dress...which is always nice to hear :)

Men's Wearhouse
 
( 4.4 / 5.0 )
We got 6 groomsmen tuxes, 2 fathers tuxes, 1 groom's tux & the ringbearers tux all @ this store & everything went smooth & as planned! It was a very easy process & the employees were friendly & helpful. The guys went & got measured in 4 different stores in Colorado & 2 different stores in California, so that made it very convenient. We definitely recommend Mens Wearhouse, they did an excellent job & the tuxes looked great!

Mount Vernon Event Center
 
( 4.2 / 5.0 )
For the most part we were very happy about choosing Mt Vernon Event Center for our wedding reception venue. It is a very pretty facility & our guests really enjoyed the back garden area. There were a few things that my husband and I were disappointed in, however:

1) our table linens were extremely wrinkly & by the time we realized, it was too late

2) we ordered a cheese sauce for the steam vegetables & I guess they were not satisfied with the way it came out. Instead of remaking it, they brought our head table cookies as an apology. Not a huge deal but the veggies were bland without it & I had put it on our menu cards!

3) We bought a great deal of alcohol for our reception & were under the impression that that would be all that was available to our guests. The day of, we realize Mt Vernon had ALL of their alcohol available for purchase. We didn't want our guests to have to pay for ANYTHING! They did list the items we had purchased as "hosted", but if they were also going to sell their own stuff, they should have told us ahead of time!!

4) At our final walk through we had indicated that the top tier of our cake would only be cut if needed. Mt Vernon didn't follow this! The top tier was completely gone & we didn't get to have any of it! It was not necessary to cut the top tier because there was tons & tons of the bottom & middle tiers left. We were a bit disappointed in this.

5) Mt Vernon needs to work on their communication a bit! Every time we called, we had to leave a voicemail. Also, everytime we emailed it took several days to hear back from them.

Despite these things, we did have a very nice wedding reception! I love the bar, outdoor fireplace, large window, fish tanks & water features @ Mt Vernon. The food we selected was also very good & very reasonably priced. I also appreciated them allowing us to "bend" a few of their rules so that we could have the wedding we envisioned!! I would recommend MVEC to other couples, but just ask a lot of questions & be prepared for little things to arise.

Mowry Productions
 
( 3.6 / 5.0 )
Overall we are satisfied with our wedding video from Mowry Productions. We got a lot of coverage and 3 copies of our DVD for a great price. Jason was very pleasant to work with, eager to do a good job & he was very quick to respond to emails. The areas that could use improvement are turn around time (our video took nearly 6 months to receive), equipment consistency (1 of the cameras used during the ceremony is 2D & was very grainy in comparison to the 3D cameras used at different angles), and lastly blending in a little more. We had guests comment on Jason's running around, and although I appreciate his hard work & urgency, it could have been a bit more inconspicuous.

Real Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I cannot say enough good things about Traci & Nic. They are so talented, professional & easy to work with! We absolutely love all of our engagement pictures & our wedding pictures are simply breathtaking. I am so looking forward to receiving our glass front flush mount album as well, I know it is going to be incredible. Traci was very quick at getting our disk to us, considering it is their busiest time of year. I will certainly recommend Real Photography to anyone & everyone & I honestly feel I have found lifelong photographers in Traci & Nic.

( 4.8 / 5.0 )
We got married @ the Trading Post & it was so affordable & more importantly incredibly gorgeous!! I worked with Betsy for most of the planning process & she was amazing...so helpful, responsive, & very nice. A few weeks before my wedding I was contacted by someone new & I am not sure what happened to Betsy. I still had an amazing wedding day but this new employee was not nearly as helpful or quick to respond as Betsy had been. We had to practically beg her to come to our rehearsal, the sprinklers turned on on us during the rehearsal, and on the day of the wedding she didn't put out enough chairs & so she had to add another row when guests began to stand around (this additional row was a different color chair too, which I really didn't like the look of in our pictures). I wished there hadn't been a concert on the same day as my wedding because there were people everywhere & they kept trying to get in our pictures & stuff...but this was a risk we knew we had to take with booking this venue. My pictures definitely speak for themselves though, Red Rocks Trading Post is stunning!
