We LOVED our dj, Jeff. He called me a week or two before the wedding to go over final details. When I wanted him to set up early so that they weren't setting up while guests were there, it was no problem - just charged a minimal cost. He played exactly the type of music we were wanting and made sure the dance floor was always hopping. He also played EVERY request my 3 1/2 year old nephew made - which definitely impressed me :) He went up to me and my husband before he did everything - like announcing the dances, cake cutting, dollar dance, etc to make sure we were okay with it. The night went really smooth and everyone had a blast. I'm so glad we went with this dj service! Couldn't recommend them enough :)

Chair Cover & Linen Collection
Connie at the chair cover collection was so great to work with! She was very easy to get a hold of and had many samples on hand to show colors and set up an example table at our first meeting to see what our tables would look like :) They came to the venue the day before the wedding to set up the table cloths and sashes. When my fiance and I got to the venue I noticed that the sashes were different than I was wanting. We had talked about it at our first meeting but the contract that I signed said something different. Long story short, Connie changed all the sashes for me without charging me extra. She was so great through it all! We also rented candleabras and beading for the head table and centerpieces that were so beautiful and very fitting for our theme. I highly recommend Connie at the Chair Cover Collection!

Muskegon Trolley company
We rented the Muskegon trolley for our wedding and we loved it! We had it after the ceremony and took it down to the lake for pictures. The people at Muskegon Trolley were very easy to work with and the prices were even better compared to a limo. We fit over 23 people on the trolley and they even let us have a cooler with alcohol on the trolley - sorry, no kegs though! :) It was so much fun and our entire bridal party loved it!!

Spring Lake Cake, LLC
At the beginning of the wedding planning process I didn't think the cake was something I cared too much about but after working with Merissa, I was soon wrong. She was so easy to work with and does an INCREDIBLE job! I can't rave enough about her. The cake tasted unbelievably delicious and looked even better. She doesn't put any hidden charges in her prices but goes above and beyond what any other baker does. She made the most beautiful wedding cake for me that looked like it should have been over $600 but only cost $300. I told her our price we were wanting to stay under and she worked with us to make the cake of my dreams :) She also made my husband a groom's cake that looked like a baseball hat with his alma mater's symbol on the front. So many of our guests actually thought it was a real hat and not a cake and were confused as to why we had a baseball hat sitting on the cake table! :) I recommend her over any other baker in the area!!! :)

The staff at Trillium was very easy to work with and very accommodating. I was the bride who changed her mind a lot and Julie and Meghan were always willing to work with me. There were some minor bumps along the road but overall their service was great. The Gillmore Collection is their caterer and their food is DELICIOUS. The only complaint that I had was we had crab cakes and steak for our reception meal and some of the steaks were cooked more on the rare side. It was great for fiance and I but not for some of our family members. I wish we would of spoke with them regarding this beforehand. But their ceremony site is absolutely gorgeous, I LOVE their gazebo. And the ballroom for the reception was beautiful as well. My favorite part was the ceiling above the dance floor - they have these amazing twinkling lights that look like stars and they didn't turn them on until our first dance as husband and wife :) It was soooo romantic!
