Divine Designs & Events
Colleen Reed of Divine Design and Events was amazing. She was very helpful and knew exactly what we wanted when describing our wedding, colors, ideas, etc. She was the first florist we met with and couldn't have been happier with the final result. My bouquet was breathtaking and we got so many compliments on all of our arrangements. When we told her our budget she was more than willing to work within it and even gave us options with prices so we could see how everything would price out. We would definitely recommend her!! [Thanks again, Colleen, for an amazing day!]

Our wedding at Pier 5 was beautiful. We got married outside on the Lighthouse Garden, and had the reception upstairs, in the Harbor Club Room. Everything was perfect and we couldn't have done it without Christina Hagan, our coordinator. She was amazing and helped keep us on task and stress-free! Communication was excellent leading up to the event during the whole planning process. For the day of, I had a bridal assistant, Emily, who was in training but you would have never known. The whole staff was excellent.

We were set up with Music Masters through the Pier 5 Hotel (where we got married and they have a contract for the lofted DJ booth). The price was definitely reasonable compared to others we looked into. The way they work with Pier 5 is, there is no initial meeting. We agreed to use them and received an email with our online login information how we submit our event details, song requests, etc. Then 3 days before the event we were contacted by our actual DJ, Bob. He was very sweet and definitely had a fun personality. My only 2 complaints were: I did not like how communication is set up. I wish we could have gotten a chance to meet our DJ prior to the day of our wedding (maybe I could have but I never thought to ask), as an initial meeting to decide whether or not we wanted to use them, AND a few days/week before to discuss our playlist. The music that was played for our reception was definitely fitting for all of our guests as a whole. We had no idea what types of music to play during dinner and Bob had a great list for that. However, once dancing started, I was a little disappointed that he didn't play a lot of "Must Play" songs...but the only ones who noticed were us :) All in all, we were more than happy with our day and how everything went. We would definitely recommend them.

Rev. Alberta Eaton was wonderful. She was actually referred to us by our wedding coordinator and we couldn't have been more happy. When we first met her at her home, she was very professional and had a great personality. She gave us a wedding packet with tons of ceremony samples, reading samples, etc for us to look through so we really felt like our ceremony was unique. She created a beautiful ceremony and she made it even more special by adding in personal details about us (bride and groom). Since we did not have a religious ceremony, she respected our wishes to have the ceremony non-religious as well. Her price was very reasonable and she was able to attend our rehearsal as well. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant!
