Edmund was so easy to work with and when I got my photos back I couldn't help but look through them over and over again. His work is truly stunning! Edmund works in such an unobtrusive way that I never noticed that he was there and it was not until I got my pictures back that I noticed that he was able to capture not only key pivotal moments but the little small intimate moments throughout the day as well. Everyone raved that looking at the pictures was like reliving the day but better. Edmund has a flair for making the ordinary extraordinary. He has a great eye for capturing creative and different viewpoints. He was one of the best choices my husband and I made in terms of our wedding vendors.

We absolutely LOVE our pictures!!!!!!!!

Flower Sculpture

I was overjoyed with the work that Marie from Flower Sculpture did for my wedding. It was everything I imagined and more. In fact we were so pleased that we had to call her that night and personally thank her for the work that she did. What initially attracted me to Marie was her lovely romantic bouquets, little did I know that she was such an artist and could work magic. I booked Marie very early, in fact almost a year and a half out from my actual wedding.I was happy that Marie took us on so far out and put in the time to scope out an initial floral plan for us. Since we booked so far in advance our floral plan winded up changing 3 times and through it all Marie was so patient and understanding. Marie has wonderful ideas and her website just shows a small portion of the wonderful work that she has done. I came to her with some different ideas and because of her years of expertise and knowledge she was able to tell me exactly what would work and what wouldn't and transform it into something spectacular. Marie was also flexible and helped to work within the budget we had. Florals was very important to me so we did wind up eventually expanding our budget to get the look we wanted but it was so worth it. I was also surprised that there were little extras here and there throughout our reception and cocktail hour that were not originally in our scope of work, which was such a delight. My husband felt like we had a platinum wedding when he saw our reception card table and our reception room all set up. He was speechless and I actually cried. The reception card table was a design that Marie came up with 3 weeks before the wedding and I am so thrilled that she talked me into getting it. All the guests talked about how beautiful it was and it fit in with the look and feel of our wedding perfectly. And my bouquet was divine!!! I was lamenting at first that I would not be able to have peonies since I was a September bride but the garden roses Marie supplied were so exquisite that I was over the top thrilled. I can not recommend Marie highly enough. She is truly an artist and one of the sweetest people. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and her work is truly stunning. She made our wedding SPECTACULAR. I am hoping to post photos once our professional pics come in.

Onada Photography

Onada did our engagement session for us and I was like WOW once we got the photos. I am someone that hates to get my picture taken but Onada made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. She took the time to help pose us and she has a great eye for what set ups will give a great shot. We did a two hour session with her and it just flew by and I was amazed at the variety of shots we got. I have gotten so many raves and positive feedbacks from people regarding our engagement pictures. There were so many great shots that it was hard to narrow it down to a few to incorporate into our album and to order prints of for the house. And on top of being talented, she is a great person! My biggest rule I had for picking all of my wedding vendors is that I had to like not only their work but really like and enjoy them as people and Onada was no exception. You can't go wrong with this talented lady.

The Wedding Factor

When they say original, inspired unforgettable weddings they are not lying! I booked Kathy a full 17 months before my actual wedding and she was awesome every step of the way. She by far was one of the best choicest we made in terms of vendors for our wedding. Looking back now I am so happy that during our initial meetings Kathy helped us to formulate a theme and vision for our wedding. I went into the wedding process with an ambiguous vague idea of what i wanted but Kathy really helped to flesh it out and formulate it into something concrete. This was so invaluable because it served as a foundation and guideline for all our other wedding decisions. Kathy brings to the table fresh ideas, a great wealth of knowledge, and exquisite taste. She accompanied me on a lot of my vendor meetings and without Kathy as a sounding board I don't know what I would have done. Kathy always offered up advice and suggestions and what I appreciated that I never felt pressured with any of it. I have come across some vendors that can be overbearing and pushy and Kathy was none of these, she was so pleasant and easy going. And I will let you know that a lot of the times we went with her suggestions and advice because looking back a lot of her suggestions really made our wedding just over the top SPECTACULAR! I always confident that we were in good hands with Kathy. She is so organized and on top of everything. I was always amazed at all the small details she remembered from all our vendor meetings. She was also excellent the weeks leading up to the wedding in coordinating all the vendors and the last minute requests and details. The day of the wedding my husband I was able to fully enjoy my wedding and not have a care or worry about anything. Kathy and her assistant handled everything beautifully. My wedding went off without any glitches. My husband and I was also amazed at how Kathy directed the set up of our decor. While we had a fantastic florist, Kathy did a spectacular job at executing our vision and making it more than we could have even imagined. I am sad that my wedding is over because I LOVED working with Kathy. I can not recommend her highly enough. From her willingness to go above and beyond what needs to get done, to her exquisite taste, to her great level of organization, and from her knowledge and expertise you are in great hands with Kathy and her team.
