Petruzzello's Banquet Hall
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Frank and his staff were extremely helpful. We had a family style dinner. We had 2 servers at the head table who helped us. I would especially recommend the Italian breaded chicken, Pasta ala greek, and the whipped potatoes. We also had a chocolate fountain and a late night snack of pizza, that my dad surprised us with. We were in the smaller room and the way they it was set up was comfortable but not too crowded. I had a great time..

Ceremony Site: Vanhoosen ended up accommodating us really well. They let us change our ceremony time to earlier and come in earlier for pictures. My coordinator, Vanessa, was really helpful in setting things up for the rehearsal and the day of. The gazebo was decorated in fresh hanging baskets and looked lovely.

Embassy Suites Detroit-Troy/Auburn Hills
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We reserved a hotel block at the Embassy Suites in Troy. Embassy Suites has a partnership with Petruzzello's (our reception site). They provide a free shuttle back and forth. They also provide a free breakfast buffet with made-to-order eggs. My coordinator there, Suzi, was helpful in answering questions and providing a guest list so I could make the gift bags for the out-of-town guests.

London Hair Company
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I give my personal stylist, Natasha, 5 stars for my hair, but everything else was so disorganized that it hindered our experience. First, the salon was going have a different person do my hair, but I complained, so they called Natasha in for me. Then they had one of my bridesmaids and one of my flower girls wait forever to get their hair done even though there were stylists just sitting around. They had makeup artists show up even though I cancelled my make -up. And then, even though they quoted my MOH a lower price for her daughters' hair, they charged her more. Everyone's hair looked lovely, it was just disorganized.

Tracie has a huge selection of invites from several companies discounted on her website. She will also pricematch if you find it lower elsewhere. She was very helpful in helping me decide the wording for our invites.

Reverend James Matt
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Rev. Matt met with us several times to discuss ceremony details and helped write our vows and select readings. My husband and I, and my entire family, were extremely impressed with how the ceremony and the rehearsal went. My dad thought he was the best he had ever seen, the way he took charge and knew the key players.

Daniel James Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Dan and his wife, Marie, started taking pictures of me getting ready and stayed well into the reception. He took a variety of formal poses and candids throughout the day. Having 2 cameras helped to get different angles and allowed them to use both medium format and digital. Our guests loved our Signature board. We received our proofs and CDs within 2 weeks, and once we ordered our pictures, we also received our album and photos very quickly too.

Chair Covers by Hana
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Hana provided white chair covers and red bows for $1.75 per a chair. She really made the chairs look pretty and the guests said the bows were a nice touch. Working with this vendor was simple and straightforward, and having this as part of our reception really added a lot to the atmosphere of the room.

BIG SHOT LIMO & SHUTTLES
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Our limo bus was on time and our driver, Cathy, was very friendly. Our only complaint was the ride was slightly bumpy and the air conditioning didnt feel cold, but it was 90 degrees outside. Cathy was well prepared and knew where she was going. She was very helpful and accommodating. Overall we had a good experience.

Elegant Impressions Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I was very impressed with their selection of BM dresses and the staff was very helpful. When we ordered my gown, we received a free tiara, and my girls got 10% off their dresses as well AND we all got free alterations. I was pleased to order all my dresses from the same shop. The shop did a beautiful job on my dress, except they complained we probably should have ordered me a shorter length making the hemming process easier, therefore my dress was still too long the day of the wedding. Other than that, my dress and the girls dresses looked beautiful.

JD's Key Club
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I had my bachelorette party at JD's Key Club. I loved it here with the dueling pianos. The performers would bring the brides-to- be on stage and perform songs in their honor. The night was very entertaining. My girlfriends and I had a great time- very fun venue!
