Margaret's French Bakery
The cake looked beautiful and tasted great. Working with Margaret was very easy and she helped us design a cake that reflected the style of our wedding.

I really loved my hair and makeup on the day of my wedding. Monina was great helping me decide on a style. I had about a dozen pictures of various styles and she helped pick out a style that incorporated the best parts of each! There was a little miscommunication regarding when she would arrive to start my hair and makeup on the day. However, everything worked out fine in the end. She has a wonderful warm personality that made me feel calm and comfortable. She also gave me a free facial the week before the wedding.

We had our wedding at Hayes Mansion in May. The location worked out great! We were the only large wedding that weekend and it felt like we had the whole hotel to ourselves. The day of service was great and the food (dinner and hors d'ouvers) was delicious. We had the ceremony on the East lawn, the cocktail hour on the hayes terrace, and the reception in the ballroom. The decor was beautiful but we did add lighting to dress up the large space in the ballroom. The only down side was the communication before the event. The coordinator was not very detail orientated and often difficult to get in touch with. It caused some frustration as I wanted to get everything taken care of way in advance. All the details were taken care of perfectly by the day of and the staff (especially the coordinator)helped everything go smoothly. It just would have made me feel better to know that ahead of time.

Kerri was our DJ at our May wedding. We also used her company for the DOC services (our DOC was Debbie). Kerri was a great MC, DJ, and even added some live vocals. She sounded great but the background music skipped a bit. The music selection was perfect and had our guests dancing the whole night. The DOC services worked out nicely. Having the DJ and the DOC work together helped keep the night running smoothly. A little more coordination before the event on the DOC side may have been helpful. Overall I would recommend Kerri as a DJ and DOC.

We used Sarah Krantz at Florabella Designs for our May wedding. We met with her once before the wedding and briefly told her what we wanted. We were very open to ideas and basically gave her creative control. The result was awesome! The ceremony decorations, centerpieces, and bouquets came out looking beautiful and better than any examples I could find or anything I could have imagined. The flowers looked fresh the entire night and we even used them to decorate our house for the brunch the following day. Working with her was easy and stress free and the result was perfect. I would totally recommend Florabella Designs!
