Big Apple Bridal
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
What a talent! She is extremely gifted and has the patient of a saint. I went to a trial w/ Michelle and loved my hair so much I booked her that instant. She took my vision and went above and beyond what I had thought it would look like. She is extremely professional, yet has such a bubbly personality that it didnt feel like a vendor was doing my hair but someone that fit in and felt like a family member or friend amongst the commotion of the typical wedding morning. She worked her magic and made everyone look extraordinary and also made me feel at ease and most importantly look absolutely beautiful! I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking for a unique, classy hairstyle for the big day. Hands down one of my most favorite vendors!

Tremendous doesn't even describe how amazing this hidden gem is. It is only 2 yrs old but is one of the best undiscovered places out there. We found it through a friend and are so pleased that we booked them. It is a one wedding function the grounds are beautiful, the staff so attentive, the food decadent, and the memories will last a lifetime. They could not have been better. The owner is at every function and went table to table to make sure our guests were having a great time. The cocktail hour has been quoted from our guests as the best ever. The amount of food was insane. We were able to create stations that reflected our nationality. We had an Italian Tuscan table and a Irish Guinness table w/ a variety of meats and potatoes. The dcor of the cocktail hour was very vibrant and carefully planned out. I loved the cocktail hour room dark woods and gave it a very homey feeling. Not a stark white room. We missed most of the cocktail hour due to pictures, but from what we tasted and saw it was magnificent. My maitred was extremely attentive and helped me out so much.

I have always heard mixed reviews of Milton Gil... such as too expensive or too popular and wouldnt be available. When I was shopping around for photographers I saw a lot. I saw several factory type photography places and many others. However, when I went to Milton Gil, I walked in and was impressed. As they say, first impressions mean a lot and that stayed with me on every other visit I had w/ other photographers. My husband went w/ me for our initial visit where we met w/ the owner Milton. He is very intelligent, charming and talented. We decided to think about it and eventually we went w/ our gut and decided to book them. We were super impressed w/ the pictures shown to us and the professionalism. We hit it off w/ Lou our head photographer right away. He made it so much fun. Our second photographer was Phil... He was awesome as well. . During dinner Lou showed us a slide show of pictures. Unbelievable is all I can say. They were unreal. My guests were raving about the quality of the pictures and the fact that you didn't see Lou or Phil, they were so incognito and blended in with the crowd.

Jackie is an unbelievable makeup artist. I fell in love with my trial and booked her on the spot a year in advance. I am a super picky person, since I wear makeup all the time. She did an airbrush makeup application and it was flawless. She put on fake eyelashes, which I was apprehensive about, but it made such a difference. . She made my 67 yr old mom look 20 yrs younger... had my sister (MOH) who never wears makeup look like a model and had me look like a porcelain princess. The pictures up close show off the air brush so well. She is pricy but was so worth every penny I spent.
