Shalonda is a true professional, her work rivals that of Vogue and Cosmo. She did my make-up for my bridal shower as well as my wedding. She was always on time and ready to go. My bridesmaids and I received so many compliments about our makeup and how fabulous we all looked. I would seriously recommend Shalonda to anyone who wants a high fashion type flawless makeup look. Her prices are a little on the high end but she is worth every penny.

Loved them; No complaints at all. I spent months looking for an dark ivory dress with gold tones. It seemed that most of the dresses I found had silver accents. I first saw my dress online at the designers website it had the gold accents I was looking for but the color was Spun Gold and I was unsure as too how gold, Spun Gold really is. Since Dior was listed as a retailer which carried my dress. I went in to see if they had the dress in the color I was looking for. While they did not have the dress I wanted, they did have another dress in Spun Gold. So I ordered my dress on the spot. My alterations were reasonably priced and problem free. The staff was always helpful and courteous. I would recommend them to anyone.

First Congregational Church
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Beautiful historic church near Wayne State, We spent several months looking for a suitable ceremony site. After my wedding planner took us on a tour of 1st Congregational, I knew this was the place. The church was once one of the stops on the underground rail and has the look of an 18 century sanctuary, which really worked well with the look and feel of my wedding. The Staff was very gracious and a real pleasure to work with.

Salutations
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My invitations really set the tone for my wedding. Jessica did a fabulous job designing the invites and had a ton of great ideas! She also created my seating chart; It was a true pleasure working with her. The invitations got a ton of compliments, and the seating chart was a hit as well - people at the wedding were telling me how much they liked it. I'm actually going to keep the chart and hang it somewhere once I have an actual house and not an apartment to hang it in - it looks that nice. I wanted custom invitations, but I wasn't able or willing to pay the ridiculous price that some vendors out there are charging for them.

Nicole is amazing. She was already at the church when we arrived and started right away, taking photos. She was very helpful all day long with any little thing. For the most part I couldn't even tell she was there. Her pictures turned out gorgeous, Nicole is a true professional.

Syms Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We wanted each of our guests to have a keep-sake and I though a portrait would be a great keep sake. We asked Syms photography to set up at our reception site so our family and friends could take portraits. He did a beautiful job and our guest really loved them!!

Ford Conference & Event Center
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This place is absolutely beautiful! I had been to events at this site before so I knew how great the food was. The Venue was a huge hit with our guests even our DJ loved it. Just a few things that I found to be somewhat annoying: During the planning I had 3 different coordinators who had 3 different ideas of what was included and what was not. However, any issue we had was quickly handled in a very professional manner. All in all, we were very pleased with the venue.

Wedding Flowers by Heidi
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
When I first met with Heidi, I knew exactly what I wanted, but I had a difficult finding a florist who understood my vision. My vision was somewhere between a fall harvest and a debutant ball. Heidi took my vague vision turned it into exactly what I wanted.. My bouquet and the bridesmaid bouquets were a better interpretation of my own ideas than I could have done myself! We did short centerpieces, tall centerpieces, bouquets, bouts, corsages, and altar arrangements. For the price, she really blew me away. Again, this is a vendor I cannot recommend enough - Heidi is truly FABULOUS!

Iversen's Bakery
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Finding a bakery was yet another exhausting search. Iversen's was one of the first places I checked out and I liked their ideas instantly, but I didn't want to immediately sign a contract with the first cake vendor I talked too, so after seeing what the others offered at similar prices, I ended up choosing Iversen's. My cake was a 4 tiered chocolate brown and white cake, with Orange colored fall leaves decorating the outer layer. The flavors were alternating lemon and chocolate (my favorites)! The cake looked spectacular and tasted even better. I would definitely recommended Iversen's.

Discount Table Linens
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The linens looked beautiful, I had gold table linens and gold table covers. I loved the way they turned out , however I had requested brown sashes over the gold chair covers. I loved the they turned out anyway, but that is the reason for the score of 4 stars.
