Silver Beach Hotel
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This hotel is in a perfect location for people coming from out of town. The staff was very accommodating and willing to reserve rooms for us at a discounted price even though it was Krasal Art Fair weekend. Since the remodeling has been completed, the hotels atmosphere is very welcoming.

Frenz & Co.
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
My bridal party, and I were very pleased at how my hair turned out on the big day. Besides my bridesmaids, we also had flower girls and moms getting their hair done. When all as said and done we were not pleased that they overbooked times and people waited over an hour for their appointments. This problem made 2 of our flower girls late for the photos before our ceremony.

Country Kitchen Catering
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Fabulous catering service. They were very friendly and willing to work with the menu we wanted. Their food was very budget friendly but the food and service did not reflect their prices, we definitely got more than we paid for. We ended up having the vegetarian lasagna, which was the best I have had, and the chicken marsala, which tasted like it was made at a gourmet restaurant. Their service at the wedding was superb.

Saron Lutheran Church
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This was the church that I grew up in so we had to have our service there. The church is beautiful and has a wonderful location. One block from the bluff in downtown Saint Joseph, the church is wrapped in beautiful stain glass windows. They also have numerous classrooms that are perfect for the bridal party to get dressed in. Overall this ceremony site was perfect.

DJ Squared
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This DJ service was very friendly and willing to work with whatever music you were interested in playing at your reception. They also were in charge of playing a slide show at our wedding. The two owners of the business met with us before the wedding and provided us with some ideas of songs. They were very organized and did a great job of reminding us of thing we were not aware of that would happen.

Crystal Springs Florist and Greehouse
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This florist has one person who specializes in weddings. Her knowledge of flowers and bouquets was very helpful. One of the nicest things was they provided a lot of pictures from previous weddings to help the bride and groom get some ideas. Delivery of flowers on the day of the wedding was prompt and very organized.

Pump House Grille
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This restaurant was very convenient for our rehearsal dinner. When planning the wedding there was a manager change so some of the communication before the wedding was confusing. But a week before the wedding everything was perfect. They made a special menu for our guest to order off of and the food was very good. One downfall is that they do not have a separate room for private parties but they did have a space with in the restaurant that was just our space.

The Blue Dress Barn
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Amazing Venue! We loved the feeling of being in a unique barn for our reception. The owners are down to earth and very helpful with planning the reception. One bonus was the price of the venue includes tables and chairs, set up and take down, we felt that it was very cheap for what we got. The location is a bit far (10 miles) from hotels and downtown St. Joe, but is worth the drive for the intimate and unique location. The only down fall of this venue is that it does not have air conditioning.

David's Bridal
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I had 4 bridesmaids who were coming from all over the country. It was very nice to use a shop that was across the country. The dress I selected were on clearance, and the retail associates were able to order all the sizes we needed and have them sent to all of my bridesmaids throughout the country. I was very satisfied with the quality of the dresses and the help they gave us. I did not get my wedding dress at this location.
