We decided on Sea Oaks golf Club because of its location. It was close to our church and was located on a beatiful golf course. At night, you can see the Atlantic City skylines and the lights on Long Beach Island on their balcony. What was great about Sea Oaks is that they were accomodating and worked with us in customizing our menu. If we wanted to switch the type of entrees we were able to or if we wanted to add a station to the cocktail hour and take out the first course, there were no questions asked and no additional cost. Another great thing about Sea Oaks was that the staff were extremely nice and friendly to us and our guests. Another reason why we chose Sea Oaks was because they had just built an Inn for guests to stay. They gave us a special rate and extended the deadline to book the room when we asked. We prepared gifts for our guests at the Inn and Sea Oaks were more than happy to deliver each bag for us.

Because of unfortunate events, we had to pull out of our contract with our previous photographer and looked to Jenny Orsini for help. She recommended Jasmine Photography. So we gave a call and Vito Kwan was ready to meet with us that next week. He traveled all the way from NY to NJ to meet with us after work, which I thought was great that he wanted us not to worry about commuting. He went over every single detail of the contract and was more than happy to answer any questions, and we signed the contract on the spot. On our wedding day, they took amazing photos and gave us a great idea to take some on the golf carts since our reception site was on a golf course. Within 3 days after our wedding, some of our pictures were up on their Blog and within 2 weeks our proofs were up on their website. What I liked about Jasmine Photo was that they were very accomodating. When we asked if we could add pictures our friends took into our Bridal Album, they said it would be no problem and to forward the files. When we asked to have our Thank You Cards sent to us earlier, they were sent with our proofs in the mail 3 weeks after our wedding. Nothing but great things.

We found Lacey Limos at a Bridal Show and decided to hire them because of their personable personalities and their close location. They were early picking us up and helped me in and out of the limo. They even held the train of my dress while I was standing in the church and surprised us with a red carpet and a champagne toast after our ceremony. What we also liked about Lacey Limos is that when we hired them to also drive my grandparents in a towncar to the ceremony and reception, they showed up in a stretch limo with no additional cost. I would definitely recommend Lacey Limos.

After many hours and days of deciding what to do for my flowers and centerpieces, I met with Sheri from Mulberry Market. She had done my cousin's wedding and I knew her work was amazing. What is great about Sheri is that she wanted to get to know me and my husband as a couple so she had a feel of what we liked and disliked. All I had to do was tell her my wedding colors and she took it from there. The next week we met again and she showed us sketches of her ideas and they were awesome. Very creative and one-of-a-kind ideas. I had nothing to worry about with Sheri, she didn't pressure us in dealing with payments. She just sent the bill a couple days before the wedding and said to drop it off when we could. What is amazing about Sheri is that she stays withing your budget. She works with what you have and I think not many florists are able to do that. By the time our wedding came, our ceremony, reception, cocktail room, and bouquets were more than we imagined. Everyone could not stop talking about them, even to this day.

I decided to hire Pampered Bride Weddings to help coordinate my wedding day after watching endless episodes of "Who's Wedding Is It Anyway." From the first day meeting Jenny, she made me laugh and become excited about my wedding when things got stressful. She even helped me find a photographer 1 month before my wedding and calmed me down when I called her crying. Her and Melissa helped give me and my husband our perfect wedding. They made sure everything ran on time and found someone to wrangle up some golf carts for us to take pictures with. They even helped me calm down before wealking down the aisle and assisted my florist in decorating the reception.
