We won 50 free invitations from Carciofi Design from a contest I entered into, so we were VERY stoked about our good fortune! I was EXTREMELY happy when I saw the invitation that I wanted, and we decided to use our "credit" to order more of what we needed. They have a lot of great pieces, and our invitations definitely fit our rock personalities! If we hadn't won the free invitations, we wouldn't have been able to afford them, but if you do have the budget, Carciofi Design is amazing to look at!

Rev. JZ was perfect for us! He not only took the time to get to know us, but because he did he personalized our ceremony wonderfully! He is such a great and fun person! Very down-to-earth.

The Elms Mansion definitely had that cozy yet fun feeling/atmosphere that we wanted, and we felt that it not only suited our personalities but our guests would still be comfortable. They treated us well, and we were very happy with them throughout while we were planning. They were our location for our ceremony and reception, and the venue was perfect! We only did minimal decor because the mansion is already amazing and we wanted its own beauty to shine. They also provided our catered food, which was delicious! All-in-all, we felt that we got the best bang for our buck at the mansion, and they provided us with a lot of fun memories!

When we signed our contract and I knew we had officially booked them, I became VERY excited! I had been to many weddings where they chose Fat Cat and Diane, and I was very impressed by their work. They provided us with such amazing centerpieces that fit our style without breaking the budget. I was very happy when I got to hash out all of our ideas and that they were open to everything that we had in mind.

I knew that I wanted a v-neck dress, and Southern Bridal had so many beautiful ones to choose from, I had to keep visiting them at least 4 times to make sure. I finally was sure about my Jasmine dress, and was very excited that I could have it customized easily as well. They girls at Southern were sweethearts, but there was an issue when they ordered the wrong size dress for me. I was thankful that I had plenty of time for the re-order to come in, which they took care of for me. We also ordered the dresses for my bridesmaids from Southern, and the Jasmine dresses were beautiful as well! Very happy with their orders.

They kept our party swinging and dancing throughout the night! We hired them basically not only because we meshed well with them, but because of their wide repertoire!!
