The great thing about being the groom is that your tux free!! I was very nice to work with the staff at J.T, Ghamo. I had previously worked with them a few years ago out of their Newington office and I chose to use them for our wedding because of the high quality of the tuxes, their customer service and the fact that they own all of their tuxes and that their warehouse is in Hartford. So...if on even the day of the wedding a tux doesn't fit they can go to the warehouse and get one that looks great even at the very last minute. Because of this I did not how to worry about the tuxes looking great at all. To me, anything that takes some stress away from the brides is a good thing!!!

Michelle Wade Photography
From the moment I saw Michelle's work, I could tell that she had natural talent. The creativity in her photos is something that I think some photographers only wish they had. Not only did we LOVE her work but it was such a pleasure working with her as well. She and her staff were with us from the time we started getting ready until the end of the night. Our wedding is going to be featured on "Whose Wedding Is It Anyways" so we were also glad to have her be able to document or time filming as well. I would be happy to speak with anyone who has any questions about the photography on our wedding day or otherwise. Just know, Michelle's work is worth every penny!!!

Camille Bridal Couture
My dress was an adventure. I went to many stores and tried on many dresses until I found "the" dress at Camille's. I dealt mostly with the owner (Irene) who was nothing but totally nice to me. I got fitted in March and when the dress came in, it didn't fit. It was a very emotional experience worrying about what I was going to do. I spoke with many people and at the end of the day I got to speak with Irene again and she was able to switch my dress for the sample which fit me perfectly. She saved the day!!! And even gave me a token of her appreciation and kindness to help me to be strong -as I was recently diagnosed with a neurological disease that is crippling me. (hence the potential weight gain and dress not fitting) But....Irene is great, my dress was gorgeous and their seamstresses are great!! I would highly recommend Camille's.

My girls and I wore sweatshirts that said bride, bridesmaid, and maid of honor in white crystals. They were so adorable. There is a picture of us in them in my profile.....They have the coolest selection of wedding gear and so much more. I liked them in particular because to me, it's a bit more high-end then some of the other vendors that may have some similar products. They were also a total pleasure to deal with. The products looked great and came very quickly. I definitely recommend them!!!

When we first booked with Correlation, we only booked their DJ services. Then we got to see some examples of their lighting packages. The things that they are able to do with lighting are just amazing. I will try to post more pics of our wedding. For us we had our initial in a few different areas, and had uplighting not only on the inside of the building but also on the outside. It looked like walking into a picture. I would definitely work with them again. A big part of our cost was the fact we had to get fabric to cover a good portion of the building, otherwise I don't think the lighting packages are quite so much. The above price is for the DJ services and lighting.

Guilford Yacht Club by JORDAN
Truth be told I don't remember how much the Yacht club cost. We had to change our venue 4 weeks until the wedding so it was a little crazy. As for the venue it's awesome!! There is a bridal suite that is upstairs where you can get ready. The place is 2 stories high and the upstairs looks down into downstairs via a "hallway/walkway" that goes around the perimeter of the room. Downstairs there is a room where the dinner and dancing take place, and then there is a second room which has a large bar and a beautiful fireplace - which was on as we got married in December. It's really nice to have only one wedding there at a time as well so you get all the attention to yourself. In addition, it was recently renovated so it looks like new inside with neutral wall colors, and hardwood floors in most of the building. I would definitely recommend this location!!!

Our wedding cake was simple but pretty. We did not have the money to have the cake of our dreams but we were happy with the final product. The staff was very nice to work with. I think my favorite part was the cake tasking. We got to taste all of the flavorings and they were delicious!!!! Be sure to come with pictures in hand though..it will help a lot when choosing which syle you's like the best.

My favorite thing about working with Jordan's Catering is how they present their food. To me, food presentation is just as important as the taste of the food. They were able to use serving dishes that matched our theme and everything!! When you book an event Jordans, you get to work with an event planner and we found our planner very very helpful. The food was delicious and beautiful. We had kobi beef burgers, fries, and grilled cheese at the end our wedding just to add a little something special. I'm not sure how much we ended up spending but it was a lot.. But I think it was well worth the money. I definitely plan on using them again in the future.
