Jeff Hawkins Photography
Jeff and his wife Kathleen are two of the nicest people I have ever met. Jeff takes beautiful photos and has a great eye for creativity. I loved all our pictures and the album that we ended up with is breathtaking. He uses a form of positioning the pictures called, "montage" which is very up to date and exciting. My only frustration was the cost of individual pictures. They were very highly priced, although they were perfect.

The women are absolutely wonderful and were very calming. Laurie came to our house and set up the day of. She used photo perfect makeup for pictures and made sure my hair was PERFECT. Even did a run through beforehand. I also had my hair done for the rehearsal dinner and it was very inexpensive. Wonderful group!!

Lana is the owner of the floral shop. She specializes in events and is so easy to work with. She had multiple meetings with us and made many changes to make sure that we were happy. Her flowers are absolutely gorgeous and she can get her hands on absolutely anything (as long as it is seasonal). She even allowed me to come see all the flowers the Friday before the wedding.

Country Club of Orlando
Ted is the event coordinator at the Country Club. It is a beautiful spot, that looks over the green with fountains and terraces outside. The ballroom is gorgeous and with the right candlelight, is extremely romantic. They did specialty drinks for our cocktail hour and set up multiple stations for the dinner service. Ted has worked with plenty of great coordinators and took care of all the setup the day of. We were able to have multiple tastings, until we were happy with the end result. Overall, a great experience!

The cake was beautiful and their decorator did an exact replica of the lace on my dress all over the cake. It was the best tasting cake we tried, and we tried cakes from at least 5 bakeries in town. Everyone else's frosting was chewy and the cake was dry. Publix's cake was moist and the icing absolutely delicious!! They had multiple fillings they were able to use as well.
