Eric Powell Photography
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I love Eric Powell and his photography. His assistant Alexis is wonderful too. Eric was recommended to me through my coworker (who also hired him for her wedding). Eric was the 2nd photographer that I interviewed. I booked him on the spot and cancelled all my other photographer appointments. Eric often sees his clients at other weddings because his clients are always recommending him to their friends and coworkers! Eric told me from the start that he'd take good care of me and he certainly did. He is funny and charming and kept me laughing on the most nerve-wracking day of my life. He even got my stoic-looking parents (who NEVER smile in photos) to laugh and smile for the family pictures too. When I first saw my wedding pictures, I totally cried because they were so magical and beautiful. As another reviewer mentioned - they seriously looked like they came straight out of a magazine. Eric and Alexis capture every emotion and detail of your wedding day from every angle and in the most beautiful light. Brides, please take great care in selecting your photographer - it's one of the most important vendors for your wedding. You don't want your bride & groom portraits to look like posed prom pictures! Find someone that you trust and whose work you absolutely adore. It's well worth the effort and investment.

Ava's Garden
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I generally found it easy to find vendors for my wedding - except when it came to the florist search! I initially met with several "designer" florists who had gorgeous wedding portfolios - but they all came at a steep price $$$$. I just couldn't spend more than $4000 for a 75-person wedding. A photographer I'll splurge on - but flowers? Not for me. Next I interviewed a more "budget" florist whose portfolio included weddings from the 1980s - um, that was scary. Then I met two other florists who got great reviews on PW - but I just didn't click with their style and personality. After interviewing 7 florists, I finally met Mary of Ava's Garden. She was recommended to me by a friend and I am so glad I found her. I really liked her style and I was just floored by how reasonably priced her quote was. My bouquet was perfect and the arrangements looked so pretty on my wedding day.

our cake and cupcakes from cake divas were SO moist and delicious. I'm sad that we couldn't eat more of our cake at our wedding!
