Makeup By Kristina
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Kristina is an amazing person and an excellent make-up artist! One of my close friends had hired Kristina for her own wedding, and I was so impressed by all the raving reviews she had earned from the bridal party. I found her contact information, contacted her and set up a consultation to talk about the make-up and the wedding day. She was very professional, she gave good suggestions and told us the time frame. On the wedding day she showed up at the hotel on time and helped us all look our best! My best suggestion to all brides is to get fake eyelashes! My eyes looked so much bigger! And I think it's 110% worth it to have a professional do your make-up on your wedding day. It's always better to have professionals when you can!

Ceremony: This place was perfect! I loved being able to walk through the guests sitting in the white folding chairs to my husband-to-be in a peaceful garden! What I loved about it was that we were able to have our reception and ceremony at the same place, and that also we were able to set up the inside in case it rained for the reception. It did not rain, and we were able to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony in front of all our friends and family. This is also a perfect setting for wedding pictures. Our guests were able to snack and socialize in a beautiful area while we took photos. Reception: The place is set up so that you can have the reception outside, and then the reception inside or outside. We decided to have an indoor reception, just in case of weather. The event manager had great suggestions on how the room could be set up, and then also made great suggestions of having different stations outside before the meal so that people could sit and wander around. This was one of the best staffs and groups that I have ever worked with. They were extremely professional and really well-organized, and it's obvious that they love organizing weddings. It an amazing place for to have a wedding, and I'm so glad that our memories will be here.

I loved my engagement pictures that were taken by Ellie, one of the photographers at Kurz Studio, and I just LOVE my wedding pictures! The team did an amazing job of capturing all the fun and excitement of getting ready for the ceremony, beautiful pictures of our guests at the ceremony, and there are just hundreds of pictures of my husband and I looking absolutely thrilled to be together! She was really able to capture all the special moments, and I am so happy that we chose them! You are able to negotiate your own package, with regards to proofs and negatives. We got a beautiful collection of pictures that capture the day exactly right.

We got a great rate with A1! We had decided that since we would all be staying at the same hotel, we would rent a bus to help charter our guests to and from the Garden. This worked out well, because we didn't need to worry about drinking and driving, or people getting lost. I think part of the reason why I got a good deal was because I never said the word "wedding", and sort of told the person that it was a family gathering. It doesn't hurt to ask for a better price! The bus was clean, spacious, and our guests loved being driven around!

I would give them a ten if I could! This was where I found the wedding dress of my dreams! It's a huge place, and they have thousands of dresses, but the dresses are really well organized, and the consultants know what's in stock and where everything is. My consultant, Kystal, was amazing, and knew exactly what sort of dress I wanted after I explained to her and showed her the pictures I had brought with me. In twenty minutes I had the dress of my dreams. It was it my price range, and needed minimum alterations. I loved my shopping experience here. Alterations: The alterations for my dress took place in the same store where I bought the dress. The dress fit me, it just needed to be hemmed and taken in under the arms. The price was really reasonable, and I wanted seamstresses who worked with wedding dresses to look after my dress.

I was having a hard time getting used to the fact that almost all wedding invitations are ordered online, because I'm so afraid of making spelling mistakes and what have you. My husband finally calmed me down and played a huge part in helping to choose out the invitations. In his online search, he wanted cards that were made of recycled materials. Minted has a great selection of eco-friendly cards, and we found ones that I also thought were pretty. We ended up choosing cards from minted, which came in sets that allowed us to order RSVP cards, and seating cards, and programs. We were able to get samples just to make sure our spelling was correct, and then we ordered everything at once. The cards looked beautiful, and with my husbands help it took less than two hours to have this part of the wedding planning complete.

We went in together to pick out an engagement ring and wedding bands. It's a bit daunting and scary trying to pick our something that you want to wear and love for the rest of your life, and luckily the staff was amazing and made sure we found a ring we loved! Our consultant, Debbie, was a great person who was kind and helped us with all our questions. We were able to find the most perfect ring, something that was beautiful and unique. I was surprised on my wedding day to find that my husband had gone back and gotten me matching earring. Both the rings and earrings are beautiful, and I love wearing them both each day!
