Johnny is a young but very talented photographer. He has a great eye for pictures and is very easy to work with. Since he is not a professional photographer (yet), his prices are so reasonable. I loved all our pictures. The only thing to be aware of is that it takes around 5-6 weeks after the wedding for the pictures to become available as he is not a full time photographer. But once our pictures came in, they were wonderful and exactly what I was looking for.

Ann Walker Catering
Ann catered for our wedding and it was perfect. The food was delicious and everything was set up exactly as we wanted it. People told us that it was the best wedding food they had had in a long time. Ann and Michael were also really helpful in other aspects of our planning. Highly recommended!

Flowers were not that important to me so I was looking for somebody who was less expensive. I found Anne's website and her prices seemed outstanding. I was so surprised when I saw my beautiful flowers at our wedding! I got so many compliments on the flowers. Anne is very thorough, easy to work with and her prices are unbeatable. Highly recommended.

Mark Haggerty from Denon & Doyle did an outstanding job at our wedding. He kept everybody entertained and followed our do and don't play list. He also was very good at keeping the flow of the reception as an MC. I got to speak to Mark directly before the wedding and it was great, as we got to know him a little. Highly recommended.

We had our wedding there on a Friday. It was a beautiful venue for a smaller wedding party. The bride's room is good for pictures before the wedding. The stained glass windows give a very nice light. Overall, great location and great setting. Negatives: The chapel coordinator was not accomodating at all to us in regards to time of the wedding because we had a Friday wedding (which is around $350 cheaper than Saturday) and therefore we seem to have less rights than the Saturday folks. We wanted to move the wedding time to the evening but were told the Saturday rehearsals had priority over our actual wedding. Be aware of the strict restrictions - no throwing of anything which was disappointing for our flower girls. The 'coordinator' they had for the day of was really high maintenance and brought her dog in the church during our ceremony. We didn't know but she kept showing the dog to us after our ceremony and generally wanted to talk about herself with us all the time right after our wedding - telling us where she was from etc, when DH and I really wanted some time alone.

Kali Kraum Photography
I took my boudoir pictures with Kali and she was wonderful. She made me feel so comfortable, had great suggestions and made the experience so much fun. I got the pictures back after a little more than 2 weeks and they are great. I can't believe how cool this is. I highly recommend her!!!

Danny Dong Photography
I did a Trash the Dress session with Danny and it was awesome!!! I got so many cool pictures. Danny has a great eye and lots of talent. He had so many creative and fun ideas on where to take the pictures, how to pose etc. The pictures turned out better than I could have ever dreamed. I am having a hard time deciding which ones are the best....highly recommended!

I absolutely loved my Reem Acra dress. The quality and workmanship are amazing. It is a work of art. I never wanted to take it off again - ever...Since Reems are kind of a myth, it was really easy to sell the dress after the wedding. I found it on eBay which was wonderful - can't beat the price for a brand new Reem dress there.

We rented our lounge area from Blueprintstudios. Ed was very helpful and helped us come up with a plan how to incorporate a beautiful lounge area that was within our budget. Their prices are competitive, as they don't charge so much for delivery and set up (other companies seem cheaper but then charge a ton for that). Highly recommended.

Elle Music & Events
We used Elle for lighting for our wedding and it was great. Their prices are a lot better than any others I have seen for the same services. Brandon is also easy to work with and very responsive to email.
