My MIL hosted our rehearsal dinner at the Hyatt Sarasota, and it was wonderful. Our buffet was incredible, but we felt somewhat rushed by the staff, which became annoying. We wanted our guests to be in a central location to our rehearsal dinner and wedding, so we also arranged for a block of rooms from the Hyatt. They gave us a decent rate per night for our guests, and no one complained about the hotel or amenities.

Gail totally got our vision of the three-level suitcase cake that we wanted! It came out even more beautiful and perfect than I imagined. She is so incredibly talented and very great to work with!

Their prices are very reasonable, and they have a classy crew who provides such wonderful service. We got my husband's tux for free because of their promotion then, that if you have 3 or more groomsmen who get their tuxes from them, then the groom's is free!

From the beginning, they were great to work with and I thought that they understood my vision of my flowers for my romantic tropical theme. However, what they provided just was not good enough. They did their job, they did, but I was not impressed. The boutonnieres were too big, and they wilted in the heat within the hour outside. My husband's even fell apart while we were taking pictures. My bouquet didn't impress me, even though it received many compliments. The girls' bouquets were nice though. But when I saw my centerpieces, my heart sank. Just not what I envisioned and thought that I had paid for.

Hiring Jacquelyn Marie was one of the best investments for our wedding. Her work blew us away; she went out of her way to get perfect shots. She was there from the very beginning while we were getting ready until we did our special exit.

We had our Cocktail Hour and Reception at the Longboat Key Club. Our Cocktail Hour was outside and our guests enjoyed appetizers. The setting was perfect because it had that Florida/tropical theme I wanted, with a touch of elegance. For our reception, everyone kept saying how good the food was (we even got a few "I licked my plate clean!") Everything was set-up how we wanted it. The venue is very elegant, and they have great service!
