Salon de Cruz
I was very happy with my hair on my wedding day. I had gone previously to do a trial run at the salon, and only was charged half price. The best part is that Carrie was willing to travel to me, so she did my hair on my wedding day at the church, where I was getting ready. She listened to what I wanted, and did exactly that. My hair was perfect, exactly as I had imagined, and she was very affordable. She also did my bridesmaid's hair for a discount, at a group rate.

David's Bridal has an excellent selection of Bridesmaid Dresses! I found my bridesmaid dresses at David's Bridal in Manchester, Connecticut, and my bridesmaids only paid $50 each. I loved the dresses, and so did my bridesmaid's. They had many colors to choose from, and many styles and fabrics. I did not consider shopping anywhere else for my bridesmaid dresses. The nice option also is that I had the choice of ordering the dresses in Florida, and my bridesmaids in Connecticut could get them there, however I did not need to do this, as I found the perfect dresses in Connecticut and bought them right on the spot.

St. Luke's Lutheran Church
This church is so beautiful, it was the perfect place for my husband and I to get married. The location was perfect, and this church has two choices for an alter, depending on the size of the wedding. They even have a brides room, and a separate grooms space where my husband was able to watch sports the day of the wedding! The only complaint I could possibly think of is that they charge more for non-members to get married there, although even that price is affordable when compared to other churches.

The cake we ordered from Publix Bakery was delicious and beautiful, and their prices were excellent. The only complaint is that I had left a sample of the bridesmaid gowns to match the frosting on the cake, and they were not even close to matching. This was not a problem though, and we got to sample a cake before we ordered.

Michael from All Around Photography was an amazing photographer, with affordable packages. We only needed a photographer for 3 hours at one site, and we found a very affordable package that would accommodate this. We also got free engagement pictures. The pictures from my wedding day came out so beautiful; I was so happy that I had gone with this company. They were so professional and came out flattering to everyone. The pictures of the ceremony were beautiful, also. I highly recommend All Around Photography

I was not very impressed with the limo service that we had received, but it was not bad either. When we ordered, the package said that we would be going through back roads, the scenic route, however the limo driver hopped on the highway and we were over to the reception in no time. Also when we ordered, the package said that gratuity/service charges were included, however the limo driver asked for his tip after letting us out, and said that this was not included. The website now says gratuity not included, but even so I did not think asking for a tip is appropriate. The limo was nice, though, and we had free soda on the way there.
