The greatest bridal store ever. The girls there are so helpful and kind. They respect your needs and are very patient. They gown choices are really fantastic- all the top designers. They have beautiful veils and shoes as well. Not a huge jewelry or shoe selection, but everything they have is beautiful and matches the quality of the gowns they sell. The alterations expert is a pro. The gown experience was exactly what I hoped it would be for our big day.

Bake Me A Cake
These bakers work with your budget to create a really beautiful and artistic cake. Nothing tacky or old-fashioned with their work. We were very impressed. The actual cake is delicious too. Delivery was a breeze and they were a fantastic choice.

Heather Snively is fantastic- a great lady and a great coordinator. Her personal vision is impeccable and she really does everything you expect a wedding planner to do. However, she tends to pass you off to her assistants for portion of the planning and thats where things get lost in translation. These assistants do not have the same feel for your vision or quality of service and sometimes it felt like there were too many middle men. Once she took over again 3 weeks before the wedding things went smoothly again. Heather is great, but sometimes her assistants don't meet expectations. I feel she was aware of this case since several assistants left through a year of my planning process.

This is a very elegant bridal shop. I did not buy my own gown here but did order all of my bridesmaid dresses here. They carry Vera Wang and so I chose them for those dresses. They were kind, but did not seem to want to go out of their way to help. I felt that the sales people were a bit apathetic. Maybe it was because I was not buying my own dress there??? Also, again they have great gowns but their own samples were dirty, old or in poor condition. Sometimes that got in the way of enjoying the gown you were trying on. It is still one of the best places in Orlando to get your gown. I would try it if you want a couture dress.

Sea Island Resort
The most luxurious and romantic getaway in Georgia- probably on the East Coast! This is a five star experience all the way. They are very accommodating to honeymooners, have amazing dining, a beautiful spa and a fun beach. This is one of my favorite places in America and I hope we can visit this special island again soon!!!

If you love crooners music and big-band style music then you have found the right band! The lead singer does a really amazing job keeping the party going. They are well rehearsed, professional, and fun!!! Everyone was seriously dancing all night- something I didn't expect. These guys know how to throw a party and still be appropriate for a black tie wedding setting which I think is hard to do. They are worth every penny!
