Level 1 DJ Services
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
Our DJ did the ceremony and the reception music. He got all of the ceremony music right (but it was very specifically laid out by us) but the reception was another thing. We felt he didnt take the time to understand when we really wanted. In place of throwing the bouquet we had a couples dance, where all the couples were to come out on the dance floor and slowly leave based on how long they were together. In the end I gave my bouquet to the last woman standing. He totally messed up the moment and even though I did give away my bouquet most guests did not know it had happened. Very disappointing.

Tower Bridal
 
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
They were rude and very disorganized. The best thing I can say for them is that at least they got the dress right! But after working with them I decided to pay for my maid of honor to come up from Portland for a day to have her dress altered in Seattle, WA instead of through them! Very disappointing.

Trophy Cupcakes and Party
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
Our first meeting with Trophy Cupcakes went wonderfully and we were both very excited. However, as time past the organization went through a bit of an upheaval and they did not contact any of their clients. So I was left unable to reach anyone as the wedding day fastly approached. We did, however, get it all worked out. They were on time to setup and the cupcakes were beautiful and delicious. They did add a lot of undue stress on us though.

Ray's Boathouse
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Rays Boathouse does everything! We had the wedding ceremony and reception there. We didnt need to decorate at all because we got married on their dock at sunset. The water and mountain views were more than enough decoration . They provided the drinks, table decorations and food. We decided to do a cocktail hors devours reception so we got to have a lot of small bits. We had smoked salmon, cheddar cheese olive bites, beef skewers, pecan crusted chicken, fruits, veggies, cheese and a crostini bar! No one went hungry and they sent all the extras home with us! I am still getting comments from guests about how amazing the food was! The service staff was wonderful! They were constantly picking up empty glasses and keeping the tables clean but it never felt rushed (at several wedding I have been to when the staff starts picking up you feel like its time to leave but not at Rays). Also, several guests told me that the waitstaff remembered what they were drinking and got them refills or remembered that they liked a certain appetizer and came back often!

Alexa did our wedding flowers using only local organic blossoms. They were very artistically crafted and fit together without being matchy. She also was willing to do everything over email and worked within our budget.

( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Brittany does beautiful work! She did our invites, programs and menus all to match. We met with her one time to personally design our invites (we picked everything from colors and folds to prints). She was so helpful and I am still getting comments on how perfect our invites were!

Brocklind's
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
They are locally owned and very reasonably priced, our tux rentals were only $100.00 a piece! They were easy to work with and made all the men feel comfortable.

Barefoot Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Patty has great packages, she did our engagement photo session and our wedding! She is relaxed, professional and produces lovely photos. One great thing she did was bring one of our engagement photos on a business card, the back had information where guests could view the photos online and when they would be available. Guests and family are also able to buy any photos they want online, directly from her, which is great for couples that have out of town family! I would hire her again in a second!

Pearls and Lace
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Locally owned and the woman who owns it actually works in the store! I had gone several times to try on my dress and she always remembered me! They had the best prices in Seattle and they were so easy to work with! She even gave me a Thank you gift of bath salts after I paid for my dress. The one draw back is that they cant store the dress, so once it came in I had to pick it up and take it to their offsite alterations person (who was great!) myself.

Sheraton Seattle Hotel
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The room was amazing, much bigger than we needed but they upgraded up for free when they heard it was our wedding night. We got to be on the top floor (34) so we had an amazing view and free breakfast in the morning. Truly dreaming!

Donna Ladines
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Donna was wonderful! My dress turned out perfectly, although she only had to shorten it by an inch, but more importantly both myself and my maid of honor felt totally comfortable the moment we met her. There were quite a lot of alterations to be done on my maid of honors dress. On the day of the wedding my maid of honor had some minor pinching at the top of her strapless dress where Donna had made it slightly to small but you could only tell when you were right next to her, the pictures were great and she looked very slim everywhere else. Her prices were also amazingly reasonable!
