Rock Bottom Sound Production
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
http://local.times-news.com/Altoona--2C+PA/Disc+Jockeys.zq.html Rock Bottom is located near Altoona, and they were fabulous and very professional! Our DJ was not annoying and did not talk too much, but she kept everything moving along very well. She used all of the songs that we requested, and she was very polite and professional. She did not have any tacky advertisements on her set-up, and she had fabulous taste. The price was only $550 for 5 hours of music, which I thought was very reasonable. She was fabulous and very nice!

Scotch Valley Country Club
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Scotch Valley Country Club is located in Hollidaysburg, PA, which is near Altoona, PA. The staff there are incredibly helpful and very willing to set up the ballroom to make it perfect and according to your wishes. They also gave me suggestions as to whom to hire for a DJ and cookie baker. Their advice led me to other wonderful vendors who made our day special and memorable. The prices are fairly reasonable. We paid about $38 per person, and this included an open bar. The food was fantastic as well. We had a buffet style, and there were several items from which we could choose to have on the buffet line. I highly reccommend Scotch Valley as a reception site. The only negative thing that I can think of is that it is about 4 miles out into the country, which can make it difficult for guests to locate. However, we solved this problem by chartering a school bus to shuttle guests from the hotel to the reception site. For us, it was worth it because we loved the beautiful views that Scotch Valley has to offer.

Vogue Limos
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We used Vogue Limos to get a limo bus for our bridal party. It is located in Jeannette, PA, which is somewhat close to Pittsburgh. Here is the website for it: http://www.voguelimousines.com/index.html. Although the limo bus traveled from Jeannette to Altoona and back to Jeannette, the price was only $1250. We felt that this was an excellent deal for all of the travel time that was involved (a total of about 4 hours of travel time plus 2 hours of the bridal party using the limo bus). The driver was very polite and willing to help. He provided us with champagne, and there were other beverages on the limo bus for the bridal party to enjoy. The limo bus was practically new and in fabulous condition. It was so spacious that we were all able to spread out and enjoy the ride to the photo sites. The driver was fairly good with directions even though he had never been in Altoona before. The bridal party, as well as my husband and I, were highly impressed with Vogue Limo.

Warner's Florist
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Warner's in Altoona, PA did a fabulous job with the flowers. The staff helped us to pick out what would coordinate well with everything. The prices were very reasonable because it was only $800 for all of the flowers that were used. This included flowers in the church, 6 bouquets, and flowers for parents and grandaparents. The arrangements are gorgeous, and they take care of delivering everything for you. I had flowers as the centerpiece at the reception, so they delivered flowers to my home, to the church, and then to the reception site. They were wonderful!

Cakes by Joy
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Cakes by Joy is in Hollidaysburg, PA. http://cakesbyjoy.com/index.html Her cakes are very creative, and she is so nice and wiling to help. She sat down with me so we could discuss exactly what the cake would look like. I gave her a general idea of what I wanted, and she really pulled through. I got a cake to serve 175, and it was only $460. Her idea of a piece of cake is large, so there were also plenty of left overs! She has several different flavors from which to choose, and they are all fabulous. She goes to the reception site to set up the cake for you as well!

Hair Trends, Inc
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
http://local.times-news.com/Hair+Trends.327671.3528789.home.html Hair Trends is in Hollidaysburg, PA, and they are fabulous! Their staff is so nice! My hair dresser did a trial run on my hair a few weeks before so she could make it look perfect for the big day! She also had several of her co-workers come in early so that the entire bridal party could get their hair done. The prices are very reasonable - only about $30 to get your hair done. All of the staff made everyone's hair look elegant ti fit their personalities. I also had my makeup done there, and they listened to me when I said that I did not want to have too much makeup on. They put just enough on to make myself look simple yet elegant.

Country Delights
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
http://www.merchantcircle.com/business/Country.Delights.814-288-5372 I used Country Delights for the cookies, and they were fabulous! It is located in Johnstown, PA, and it was worth the drive from Altoona, PA, to get the cookies! The prices are extremely reasonable. I paid only about $250 for almost 900 cookies. There is a wide variety of cookies from which to choose so that guests will be bound to find something that they can enjoy. If there are left-overs, they can be frozen and still taste delicious!
