Soiree provided chivari chairs for our reception. They were white and looked great. Chairs were in good condition and we were able to choose a pad in the color we wanted.

Austin Burke of Florida
Decided to buy a suit rather then rent a suit or tux. Best prices I found for the quality. Huge selection and real salesmen, not a bunch of highschool kids like the tux shopes at the mall. Free alterations were a nice touch. They also gave me a free tie and a discount off ties for my groomsmen.

Saint Jude Ministries, Inc.
We wanted a non-denominatinal male officiant with good values. Reverend Michael Calderin fit the bill. We met with him once before the wedding and went over all the ceremony details. He then emailed us the ceremony to review. He added a lot of personal touches, which we liked and kept the guests attention. He is a very nice person and we enjoyed working with him.

Muse in the Gables
This is my wife's regular salon and she felt it was worth making the trip to have her hair and make up done here since travel charges would have been a lot more expensive. Well worth the trip, she looked amazing! The bridal party was also very happy with their looks.

UBIS MUSIC & LIGHTING
RJ was our dj and he was great! Played a good mix of latin and american music. Also announced the bridal party into the reception. Ubi was great to work with too and very organized.

My wife found the exact dress she wanted here. It was helpful that the staff spoke english and spanish (wife's mom speaks mostly spanish). They also did her alterations. She had a great experience and loved the shop.

DoubleTree Grand Biscayne Bay
We looked at a lot of locations, but this was definitely the best we found in our budget in terms of view, function space, and value. The package included a lot and was a fair price. Having a hotel wedding worked out well since we were able to get reduced rates our group and were given a complimentary suite for my wife to get ready and us to stay that night. We were wowed by our tasting and although the food was good at the reception, it was a little better at the tasting. Other then that everything was great.

Cake Designs By Edda
A cake was included in our package with the Doubletree. We did a few upgrades which were affordable. We actually did our cake tasting directly with Edda's and chose a cake from their book. The cake actually tasted better at the wedding then at the tasting, which is always a nice surprise. Some guests actually had 2 pieces, which almost never happens at a wedding.
