They were so great to work with! They created a custom menu of steaks & pastas for our rehearsal dinner. Everyone raved about the food, we got wonderful service. My only complaint is the room we rented was not fully secluded from the bar. There is a big wall of windows that looked into the bar, making it less formal, when the room itself looks very high end with fireplace , etc. But they gave us a complimentary dinner to try everything, even comped our drinks.

Midway Party Rental, Inc.
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I rented table linens from Midway Party Rental. They were very reasonable and I loved their showroom. They were ready when we needed to pick up and drop off. I would definitely recommend them. I think I only paid $25 for all the linens!

You cant beat the cake for the price. I wished they had a little more variety in their flavors, but they were SO easy to work with and very accommodating as I wanted a specific design (cherry blossom flowers) on my cake to match other dcor in my wedding.

We are members at this church. I love them dearly, but we had some big problems the day of the wedding. The room we were given to get ready originally wasnt available. The second room we were given didnt have air conditioning. They did find me a fan, but it was a huge stuffy room and it didnt do much good. Also, they schedule weddings too close together, so you have to avoid the other wedding party & such for quite awhile during the day, which makes it hard for pictures, etc. Also the clergy member performing our ceremony forgot my husbands name and then pronounced our last name wrong! NOT the way to start a marriage and it was very embarrassing. The cost for the ceremony was $600 for members, and $1200 for non-members at the time.

I really loved Adagio. They have an online planning website which is SO helpful! You can even view DJs online and read about their backgrounds, see their pictures. I exchanged lots of emails with Heather (the owner of Adagio) and she was wonderful. I would highly recommend them. The Dj wasnt the greatest that we booked, and I was a little disappointed in that, but we did have a great time regardless.

They were so easy to work with. I was referred to them thru a co-worker. I brought in a few designs that I liked, and they tried to match them. It wasnt exactly the same, but it was close. The price was a fraction of what youd pay for other places. The only complaint is that they didnt have any matching envelopes. (we wanted black envelopes and they didnt have any)

Molly's Flower Studio
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I met with Molly and loved her. She was so easy to work with, and really understood what my vision was for my wedding. She was very reasonably priced. My only concern was that we agreed on cherry blossom stems in Eiffel tower vases for some of my centerpieces. Shortly before the wedding, I was told that they were not going to be available. We had already based some of our other dcor & cake around that theme. But Molly came thru with beautiful orchid centerpieces instead, which were amazing.

Stephany is incredible!! I have referred so many people to her and they have all booked with her. Stephany did my boudoir shots, as well as my wedding pictures. She is very creative and LOVES weddings. Nearly all of her shots brought tears to my eyes. She captured things I never would have seen on my wedding day.

I experienced several staff changes in the planning of my wedding, which made it very frustrating to re-inform the new staff of what was happening with my wedding. There was some misunderstanding about use of a room for the morning after and what the charges would be, and that was frustrating. But they were accommodating otherwise, as far as bar set up, instructions, and working with all my vendors. They put on all my satin chair covers & sashes for me, as well as table linens I had rented. Many of my guests also lodged at the hotel. Everyone was able to get rooms and a small discounted rate. Our wedding night room was nice, I would have liked a nicer room or a suite for what we paid them overall for the wedding.

nancy and her husband know their stuff! They researched places for us based on what we wanted. Her website has her own vacation pictures, so you know they are not doctored up for promo purposes. She personally stays at these locations, therefore can tell you firsthand about what you will experience.

I had very few, if any problems with the Wedding Shoppe. They custom made a veil and a necklace to match my dress. The alterations were perfect. Being as it was a busier salon, I did experience some waiting thru all my appointments (and rescheduling), which prevented me from giving them a 5. But overall, I was treated very well, and got wonderful service. The designer dress was amazing, and their custom work was a little overpriced, but Im glad I did it. Bridesmaids got alterations done on their own. I think only one needed a hem. The wedding shoppe also custom made a necklace for me to match my dress.

After dinner at McCormick & Schmick's and a night of fun for my bachelorette party, we stayed at the Radisson over night. Radisson was great. Our rooms were ready on time and exactly as requested.

We rented a 1955 Rolls Royce Bentley for my husband and myself. They were supposed to be there at a certain time, but they were late. The car should have been outside before the wedding ended, but that wasnt the case. Also, it should have been parked right outside the church, but it was on the side so not all of our guests got to see us drive away in the cool car!
