Anne did our flowers for our May wedding they turned out more beautiful than I envisioned. At first when I walked into the reception, I was blown away with the decor, and she wasn't even finished setting up yet! Anne got the job done and I'm happy that we chose her.

Sal the Flower Guy
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
I called the shop to make an appointment and the owner Sal said to come in the following Sunday at 10 to 10:30am for the appointment. I came at around 10:30am worried that he was waiting a while and come to find out that no one was even there, the store was closed! I called a couple of times and there was no answer so I left a msg on his cell phone. I finally got a hold of him and he said he was about 5 minutes down the road. I just couldn't imagine if I actually got there at 10am! I thought that was pretty unprofessional and on top of that his prices were kind of high. He just quoted me a price at the top of his head without even asking what flowers I wanted. Other than that, his personality is nice but I got the feeling he was just full of it.

Gesinee's Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I was hesitate going to Gesinee's Bridal because of so many bad reviews on different websites but I went there anyway because it was the closest place to carry the brand Watters. It was actually a good experience, the sales assoc. was helpful and patient, however, I had to wait over half an hour for my consultation even though I had made an appointment. The store is actually larger than it looks from the outside and they seperate their dresses according to price. It was a bit more expensive than what I originally thought but if you pay the whole balance that day then they don't charge you sales tax. First consultations are free but afterwards they starting charging, I think it's $35. I'm still waiting for my dress since I just ordered it last month so I have yet to write a review about that.

B & B Floral
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Linda is very nice and honest about her services. She doesn't try to sell you something or pressure you into buying more than what you want. Her prices are lower compared to other florists but she's very slow to respond, especially on emails. Other than that, she gives good suggestions about what flowers would be best according to your colors and which ones are in season.

I was not impressed at their presentation, their cakes were a bit cold, like they just took it out of the refrigerator and their fondant sample was just a rolled up ball that we had to pick at which was a bit hard. We had to wait for about 20 min. until we got help and only because my fiance got one of the ladies behind the counter and this is when we already had an appointment. Their cakes were decent and are inexpensively priced.

Kerri & Melissa was our DJ/DOC for our May wedding and they definitely did an amazing job! Our guests were having a blast! Kerri is so easy to work with, not to mention funny! Everything ran smoothly on our wedding and everyone was saying how she was so entertaining. She definitely knows how to respond to the crowd and everything worked out perfectly. Highly recommended!

At first, the onsite event managers, Samantha & Tess were friendly and accomodating and often reiterated their montra of no "hidden fees." However, a month and a half into the contract there were several problems and inconsistencies. They promise one thing and yet do another and make no apologies for it. Terra C. who was suppose to be the Director of Catering is only worried about getting your business and not about your wedding. My fiance & I had a meeting with her to talk about the menu pricing that they keep changing on us and she did nothing to compromise and on top of that she gave us a lot of attitude, made us feel stupid, and tried to intimidate us by saying there's no negotiating on the price and weddings are always expensive, etc. Her whole attitude is that of a bully and very rude and we cancelled the contract with them. All she said was "Okay" and that was it, without even being apologetic, like it was just whatever to her and another couple can just take our spot and she'll make more money with them. I would gladly pay so I never have see her face again.

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Mary is very helpful and really does a good presentation. Her tiramisu is delicious and her cakes are reasonably priced. However, we couldn't try the cake samples as a whole but instead she had different dessert pastries to try which wasn't the same. Other than that, she's very nice and gives good suggestions and charges you on the lower end of your guest count. We told her we would probably have around 100 guests and she gives you the cake that serves say 100-114 ppl but only charges you for 100 ppl.
