Proud To Plan
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Erin was such a blessing throughout our wedding planning. She not only was our day-of-coordinator but she also provided all of our paper goods. We gave her our ideas for the invitations and she ran with it. They turned out amazing. She was great to work with throughout the proofing process with making any minor adjustments we wanted and the turn-around time was great! After having Erin create the invitations, we knew that we wanted more so she also did our programs for the church, signage at the reception including favor and table numbers, water bottle labels and labels for our OOT bags. Everything was perfect and totally unique! As for her services on the day of the wedding, they were more than I could have asked for. Before the day even came, she was confirming with all our vendors and creating a timeline to distribute to them. She helped to take off the stress before the day. On our wedding day, she was great by coordinating everything at the church, getting the boys taken care of, taking care of all the behind-the-scenes and also taking care of any special requests. She was great to work! I would tell any bride to invest in her services as they will help to make your day perfect!

The team at Capone Photography is truly amazing! We used them for our engagement photos and wedding photos and they far exceeded our expectations. Their work is incredible and they make you feel like family. Their attention to detail and development of a wedding day timeline helped to keep us running smoothly all day. They had great suggestions for picture locations after the ceremony! They also got so many great shots at the ceremony and reception and we didn't even realize they were there. They let us totally enjoy the day while they captured everything to help us relive the day through our pictures! Their turn-around time on all our requests was also great and they were so accommodating to any of our needs or wants. Not only did we love them but our bridal party and families also loved the Capones.

Michael did an amazing job on our personal flowers. My flowers were done exactly to be specifications and were complemented so well by BMs flowers. I let Michael take control of the guys flowers and I was so happy. They came out great....each guy had a different boutonnire to complement the girls flowers and they were wrapped with a black ribbon with white stitching to go with our black & white theme. They look awesome. He is truly an artist and I received so many compliments on our flowers.

John and his two assistants were great! The dance floor was packed the entire night!!! John played all types of music for all our guests and was sure to play all our of "musts". He took our wedding to the next level. From our first meeting to our wedding night, John was both professional and fun making it wonderful experience to work with him.

Alicia did all of the centerpieces, linens and some extras for reception. The room looked incredible. We had tall and short centerpieces that were stunning. We used bright floral to complement the black and white and each vase was filled with green apples (thanks to Alicia's suggestion). It made each centerpiece pop against the black pin tucked runners on the tables. Alicia was very reasonably priced and we were able to customize what we needed and add on anything additional items that we wanted. Alicia made our vision for the room a reality and it was simply perfect!

This is the most amazing space that we have ever seen. We looked at a lot of reception sites and knew immediately when we walked in Cescaphe' that this was the perfect site for us. The room is totally unique in an great section of the city. Joe, the owner, and the front office people were great to work with. They catered everything specific to us and became a valuable resource throughout the planning process. Each meeting was exciting and so smooth. We had nothing to worry about when it came to Cescaphe'. The room look absolutely incredible for the wedding. It was more than I ever dreamed of. Every guest complimented us on the wedding. From the 1 1/2 hour cocktails to the dessert room, the food was some of the best that we had ever eaten. Our guests could not believe it. The staff including the maitre'd were so attentive and made sure that we had everything we needed. We cannot recommended this place enough...it is in a class of its own!

Hyatt Regency Philadelphia
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The Hyatt was the hotel chosen for our OOT guests. Lori was great to work with and provided anything we needed. The rooms are modern and clean. Guests came back to the hotel following the wedding and were able to hang out outside on the Delaware for a few late night cocktails. We also had a brunch there the following morning and it was done well. The room was great as was the food. This is definitely a four star hotel!

Tropiano Transportation
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
Tropiano was not one of our best vendors. They were difficult to get in contact with originally but the price was right. On the day of wedding, the buses showed up on time and were clean. But at the end of the night, the shuttle would not make an additional run to accommodate some stranglers including the bride and groom!

First Class Luxury Limos
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
First Class was great to work with as their vehicles were clean, drivers were courteous and the cost was totally reasonable. I shopped around for a great Rolls Royce for my dad and I and they were the best I found. The car looked great and the owner is actually your driver. He takes pride in his car and it shows. The limo bus worked great and was able to fit our entire bridal party including bride and groom (18 people). We had a blast riding on it as we traveled through Philadelphia getting pictures.

Positano Coast by Aldo Lamberti

This is where we had our rehearsal dinner. The restaurant is fabulous with a location right off of Penns Landing and food that is top-notch. The weather was perfect the night of our rehearsal dinner so that had all the floor to ceiling windows opened to make you feel like you were on the coast in Italy. The feel of the room is great and the service was also impeccable.
