VanderSalm's did all my flowers. They were easy to work with, had many photo albums for me to look through to get ideas, and were willing to meet with me multiple times. There is no fee to sit down and talk and to reserve my date is was only $100! The designers have done tons of weddings and have some great ideas.

DJ Plays - Bob Northrop
Bob did a great job! When we first met with him we were a little apprehensive but once we began talking it seemed like he really enjoys his job. That Saturday, he took requests and kept the dance floor going all night long. The reception was inside but there was a porch and he even pumped music out there for guests who wanted to get away for a while.

Trinty Lutheran Church
I am a member at this church, so it was less expensive than a non-member. However, the church is quaint with an old style feel... no matter how many guests you have, it will seem like a lot of people are attending yet everyone will be comfortable. There are stained glass windows, a vaulted ceiling, a balcony for the organ (and photographer!), and the main church doors open to stairs that take you out to the front of the church. It was picture perfect walking out those doors and down the steps into the limo. Pastor Ken Johnson is very nice and did a great job at the ceremony. We had a full length sermon and communion and it was only 35-40 minutes long.

Continental Bakery in Battle Creek did an amazing job with our cake. I brought in a picture and they matched it to my specifications. We were able to choose from different shapes and each layer had a different, customized flavor. They were very helpful and the cake tasted great!

HQ Salon and Spa
Everyone at this salon is so friendly and helpful! The total is a bit much. However, all my girls, my mom, and I all got manicures done the Friday before and hair & make-up the day of. They opened the salon 1.5 hours before regular time to make sure that we were not rushing and had plenty of time. They worked around MY schedule which was a nice change. That Saturday, everything was planned so 2 girls were having their hair done and 2 girls were having their make-up done at the same time. We were able to bring in food and drinks to enjoy. I would highly recommend this salon for any wedding party, or even just to get a haircut
