Everlasting Occasions--Day of Wedding and Elopement Coordination
Raven from Everlasting Occassions was a God send for my wedding. Since I was planning everything from out of state, I wanted to hire and great Day-of Coordinator to help with all of the set up, organization, etc. I could not have been happier with Raven. She went above and beyond to make sure all my vendors were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be. She oversaw all of the setup and tear down of my ceremony and left NOTHING for my husband and I to worry about. She was very professional, friendly, and prompt. I highly recommend her as a wedding coordinator!

I cannot say enough about how happy I was with LeeAnn! She is an amazing photographer and an all around joy to work with. She has a wonderful talent of working with natural lighting and it made my pictures look amazing! LeeAnn made my husband and I both feel so comfortable while we were taking pictures, which made our pictures look more natural. She was also able to work within my budget which allowed me to have very high quality portraits at a price that was affordable for me. I cannot recommend her enough!!!

I hired a flutist and a harpist for my wedding ceremony from New Arts Ensembles. They played beautifully and were very professional. They perform and tons and tons of weddings all around the area so they definitely know what they are doing and it shows. They were willing to learn a couple of specific songs that I asked to be played at our ceremony and it all sounded beautiful. I was very happy with them.

Old Savannah Tours
We hired a trolley from Old Savannah Tours to transport our guests, as well as my husband and I, to and from the hotel to the ceremony site to the reception site and back to the hotel at the end of the night. All of our guests loved the trolley. Our driver, Ken, was very prompt and entertaining for all of our guests. He even took them on an impromptu tour of the Historic District on the way to the restaurant. We were very happy with our decision to hire them for our transportation needs.

Rev. Steven Schulte
I can't say enough nice things about Rev. Schulte. He was just amazing! He was so easy to work with and performed such a memorable ceremony for my husband and I. He was very open to letting me design the ceremony the way I wanted it to be and was happy to have my Grandad participate in part of the ceremony. He is a super nice guy and made my husband and I feel very comfortable through the whole ceremony. I would highly recommend him to anyone getting married in and around the Savannah area.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous bakery! I couldn't have been happier with how my cake turned out! From the beginning, Carrie was so amazingly easy to work with - epecially since I was planning everything with her via email. It was pretty easy to pick out the cake design I wanted because I saw one in their gallery that I just fell in love with. Carrie was great in helping me choose which flavors to go with and my guests couldn't stop talking about how wonderful it all tasted. I ended up going with chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and cream cheese poundcake with lemon buttercream. Both were delicious! I would highly recommend Two Cakes to anyone getting married in and around the Savannah area.

Julie did a great job on my monogram and was very quick to get back with me! I gave her some simple information about my wedding (colors, style, etc.) and she came up with the perfect design for me. I'm excited about using the monogram for alot of different things throughout my wedding! Thanks Julie!

I ordered a beautiful damask table square from www.wedding-linens.com. I needed a different size than they listed and emailed them to inquire if it could be made. They were very quick to respond and VERY helpful! I was able to get the perfect size that I needed. The shipping was VERY fast and the table square was perfect. I would definitely recommend using them for any linens you may need! I'll post some pics from my wedding in a couple of weeks!

A to Zinnias
I have booked A to Zinnias to do the flowers for my wedding. I have been working with Natalie and she has been AMAZINGLY wonderful to work with. She does beautiful work and she has great ideas to fit with every budget. She is very knowledgeable about any and every kind of flower you can think of. She has helped me to choose the most beautiful flowers for my wedding and I can't wait to see how they turn out! I HIGHLY recommend using A to Zinnias if you're getting married in the Charleston/Savannah area. After Wedding Review: I could not be more happy with the way my flowers turned out! Not only did Natalie go above and beyond what we discussed having, she also suprised me with peonies in my bouquet! I wanted them from the start but she didn't think they would be in season for my wedding. What a nice suprise! She even told my coordinator she couldn't wait to suprise me with them. :) I am more than satisfied with my experience with A to Zinnias and would recommend them to ANYONE!

Great prices and friendly sales people. The management is severely lacking in customer service and should be told to smile more often. They do not take appointments to try on dresses so you have to sign in and wait in line until a consultant is available. Alterations are only done Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 to 2:00 and they also do not take appointments for this. They stop taking dresses after the first 25 people. Get there before they open if you want to make sure you get seen! Edit: Just wanted to add to my review. When I went back for my second fitting, I decided to get there 15 minutes before they opened to make sure I would be one of the first 25 there. When I got there, there were already 12 brides there standing in line! They had even started a list of everyone's names so that the seamstress would know who was there first! Rediculous!!! Pearl's Place has great prices but I would take your dress somewhere else to have your alterations done.
