We used a British Motor Coach for our get away car and we loved it. It was a great way to leave the wedding. The ride was nice and comfortable. There was water and champagne in the car waiting for us which was nice.

Blue Willow Catering
Blue Willows food was absolutely amazing. Patty, the chef, gave myself, my husband, my mom, my sister and my wedding planner a private tasting that allowed us to taste the exact menu we had for our wedding. This was very helpful because we knew what to expect. We had a family style dinner where all the food was served on platters instead of individual plates. Some quotes we got were inflated because of the style in which we wanted to serve the food but Patty worked with us and gave us a reasonable price. At times it was difficult for our wedding planner to get in touch with Patty so that made it somewhat challenging. Over all though, it was a positive experience and I would highly recommended the food!

I first tasted Crme de la Crmes cakes at the Seattle Wedding Show and I knew right away I had to have them make my cake. These cakes are absolutely delicious. They are also gorgeous! The cakes are a little expensive but they are completely worth it. I have been to weddings where there is a lot of cake left over at our wedding though there wasnt a single piece of cake left. My family still talks about how good the cake was today. The bakers were very easy to work with and they took the time to help us figure out what size we needed. Since they are so good they get booked really fast, so it is good to get them booked really early.

Working with Alexa was such a great experience. I dont know a lot about flowers but she sat down with me and helped me pick which flowers would be best for my wedding. Alexa also met with me, my husband and our wedding planner to do a mock-up of our center-pieces, which was great because then I could visualize what everything would look like. Her pricing was very reasonable compared to some of the other quotes I received. Most of all I couldnt be happier with my bouquet, I had it freeze-dried and it still looks stunning!

Mona Lisa Events
I cannot say enough good things about Mona Lisa Events. My husband and I interviewed eight different wedding coordinators before choosing Mona Lisa Events. We could not have pulled our wedding together the way our wedding coordinator did. We worked with our wedding coordinator, Lisa, for a full year before the wedding meeting about once a month in the beginning and then meeting all the time towards the end. She set up my appointments and went on most of them with me. It was great to have someone there who was experienced in the industry. We wanted to serve the food family style and Lisa came up with the great idea to have Lazy Susans in the middle of the table. Lisa had them custom made for our wedding and it definitely made the tables look gorgeous. The day of the wedding, Lisa and Heather (Heather is the new owner) did a wonderful job making sure everything was on track and that there were no disasters. I was completely calm because I knew they had everything under control. If I ever need to put on a party again I wouldnt hesitate to use Mona Lisa Events.

GH Kim Photography
Working with Hun and Grace was great. We were able to take our engagement pictures with them as well. They also asked if they could bring a long a friend for the day of the wedding since our wedding was so bug. This essentially meant we got three photographers for the price of two, it was great! We felt like movie stars with all the cameras. We completely love our pictures and it was great that during the wedding they set up a laptop with some of the pictures from earlier in the day for quest to see right away. After the wedding it took a couple of months to get our pictures back which was a little disappointing but once we got them we were able to relive the day all over again through the picture and they DVD they gave us. Overall Grace and Hun were great to work with and we will definitely use them again.

La Belle Elaine's
La Belle Elaines Bridal is a great place to try on dresses. They have a long runway that is fun to walk down. However it is a good idea to go during the week because on Saturdays it is pretty crowded. I actually only bought my veil from La Belle Elaines but they were very helpful. My veil had a ribbon on the edge and when I went to go pick it up a couple days before my wedding and it was pink! The pink ribbon did not go with my ivory dress at all. La Belle Elaines ordered a new one right away and it was there in time for my wedding. The girls there were really helpful and nice.
