Blooms & Heirlooms
Overall I was pleased with what I paid for. While it seemed a little expensive, I suppose it is average considering the area. I provided inspiration pictures and then B&H ran with it. Everything turned out better than I expected and I was very happy.

Bridal Alterations by Anahit
I didn't get my dress at VOWS, but Anahit took me anyway. I was so happy because the reviews clearly show she is the best. Well, she is. She knows what she is doing and does not try to sell you. I am so happy with how my dress turned out!

We went to a few shops in town and we felt the best at Bridal Reflections. Anita was very helpful and accommodated us. You need to make an appointment since it is the upstairs of her house. It does get a bit crowded and overwhelming, but she has a big selection and helps you find what you like. She is very personable and gets you the best price. Overall, we liked working with her since she made it about us and not the bottom line.

We love The Colony! We had our ceremony in the garden and the reception in the grand ballroom. It is expensive, but it is beautiful. We had a lot of troubles with hotel rooms (can't have the balcony rooms if you are in wedding party) and other things, but in the end it worked out great. Everything was beautiful and went smoothly thanks to Pam! The only downfall is that receptions end at 9pm because hotel guests need quiet to sleep. I do see a prior post saying no DJ - we had a DJ for the ceremony and reception, so I guess things have changed.

Fringe Hair Art
It is nice to have the salon to yourselves while getting ready for the wedding! I had 2 trials for my wedding day hair and even one bridesmaid had a trial. On the day of, they were there on time and ready for us. They get you in and out efficiently while working closely with Laurel. The only thing was I needed to add a lot more hairspary to keep my hair set. Other than that, it was perfect! They are down to earth and easy to talk to too. Also, they offer drinks (water, coffee, tea) and these delish cookies too, which is an added bonus.

Let Them Eat Cake
Gayle is a great cake designer! We looked through her gallery of cakes and had our cake made as a combo of 2 of her designs. The cake was gorgeous!! It was also delicious! We received comments on how the fondant wasn't like most and was so sweet and yummy and the cake was moist. Can't wait to eat it again in 1 year! Thanks, Gayle!

Mike was great! He listened to everything we wanted and gave us ideas on how to handle our concerns. He is very responsive and any time I had a question he was ready and able to assist. We had different entry songs for each wedding party member and switched it once, so it got a little mixed up, but other than that there were no issues. Our play list was played and I didn't hear anything from the do not play list. Overall, Mike knew what to play for the crowd and handled it well and we were happy.

Dan did our rehearsal and ceremony. He spoke well and coordinated everything how it should be handled. One thing I would have changed was having him use a mic. He was against using a mic which I preferred and it never occurred. Overall, we were happy with our officiant choice!

I bought my dress here. The shop seems dated, but they have some great finds. I love my dress and am happy with the price. The people are also so pleasant!
