Michael was the name of our videographer and he seemed very nice (we saw him so little). We can only judge him by the fact that he seemed very non-intrusive and some people did not even know we had a videographer...more to come...

Tania from Swank Hair Salon
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Tania was awesome and we all (my Mom, bridesmaids and I) loved our hairstyles and Tania is just so calming and fun to be around. We had so much fun in the suite with Tania, Maureen (makeup) and Margaret (photographer).

Carmela does beautiful work. She did all our inner/outer envelopes and also our menus. The only somewhat negative is that I believe that she smokes so when we received the envelopes, they kind of smelled. Luckily for us, I have a huge bag of peppermint which I placed over the envelopes overnight and the smell went away.

Cite
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We booked a private room at Cite, one of our favorite "group" restaurants in the City. The reason we ultimately picked it is location (it is only 1 avenue up from St. Pats) and they offer a wine/champagne dinner which is perfect for setting the celebratory tone for the weekends events. We will be doing the prix fixe wine/champagne dinner which includes appetizer, entree, dessert and all the wine/champagne you desire. If anybody has any specific questions about who to contact or pricing, just page me. The wine/champagne was a hit and everyone enjoyed all their dishes. All our guests were raving how wonderful the food was and also that the service was excellent. We also enjoyed the fact that they printed out individual menus with "John and Angelas Rehearsal Dinner" at the top.

The drivers, Donald and Gerry, were courteous, professional, and organized. They were so great that SIB asked for their business cards. There is not one negative thing I can say about them. Donald even came in to peek in the church at me before he left.

St Patrick's Cathedral
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
DH and I can not imagine having a better memory of: 1. For me, walking down the long Cathedral aisle towards him and 2. For him, seeing me walk down that aisle. It was truly a magical and beautiful experience.

Karin Yngvesdotter
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Karin is just so wonderful to work with. Not only is she a skilled seamstress but she is a great listener. Unfortunately, Karin will no longer be doing alterations only but she does have her own designer collection and she also does general gown design.

Maureen Pedala
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
She offers airbrush makeup and is absolutely wonderful. Full trial applications are free and day of is $250. Bridal party prices are more reasonable, particularly if you have a number of people getting applications. She is so nice! Maureen made me feel so special and beautiful on the wedding day. My bridesmaids and Mom felt the same way and even if we hadn't felt that way, we would have been forced with all the compliments we received from the guests (and strangers!) the whole day and night! The makeup lasted but I already knew it would from my trial application. Maureen is wonderful.

Bridesmaid Dresses. Purchased in November from RK Bridal. All BMs (were shipped to different addresses in different states) received before the end of January. We ordered Bari Jay, Styles 411 (MOH) and 638 (BMs). The beauty about these styles is that they look exactly alike in the cut and drape. The only difference is that the MOHs dress has the crystals scattered throughout the bodice whereas the BMs dresses have the stones only at the top of the bodice. Also, the MOHs dress has a corset back and the others did not. It was a way to allow my sister to be somewhat unique without interrupting the flow of the dress styles. I did not find any other companies that offered something like this.

Le Parker Meridian
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
As those of you who have read our review know, we had just a few minor issues that arose during, or were connected to, the reception. However, DH and I did not even find out about these issues until after the wedding was over. This means that from our perspective, the entire event from start to finish was absolutely perfect. Even when we found out about the little things, they were relatively meaningless to us.

Chaser Music & Entertainment
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
What more can we say besides: 1. They learned a couple "special" songs for us and played them if not as good, better than the originals; 2. They had everyone up and dancing the whole night; 3. They had US up and dancing the whole night.

Scotts Flowers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Not only did I hear some remarkable things about him but during the interim of looking for a florist, fi and I realized that he was the only florist our photographers recommended AND he has since become the house florist at Le Parker Meridien. He has a wonderful eye and has given us some great (and fun) suggestions. We decided to do something a little unique--we wanted to blend classy with modern. We came up with this idea: Each bridesmaid (4 total) will carried a monochromatic bouquet (all of the same flower) of each of the following flowers, in a similar shade of pink: callas, roses, peonies, tulips--- My MOH (sister) carried a bouquet which had all 4 of those flowers mixed together: I carried a similarly-mixed arrangement except mine will be in all white and I will have parrot tulips (which have a bit of green on the petals): All the men in the bridal party (including readers and my Dad) wore calla bouts like this (however, DH's was white and all the other bouts will be pink: Here are samples of our flowers--the first pic (excuse DH's bent butt) is a small centerpiece that was at our sweetheart table. The second pic includes 3 centerpieces from the reception, the day after, which I gave to my parents to take home. Paul is a wonderful person and exactly what you want in a wedding vendor--creative, thoughtful, organized, and just all-around wonderful to work with. He did a spectacular job and even, as Ann (our day-of coordinator) told us later, he fixed up some of the botched colored-candy flowers on the wedding cake.

Peter Fox Shoes
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
They had seemed quite comfy when I practiced wearing them before the wedding day. They were comfy at 11 am. Comfy at 2 pm. Comfy at 4 pm. Then, somehow, by 6-7 pm, my feet hurt so badly, I had to change shoes (despite the Foot Petals products my sis placed in the shoes). The next day, some areas of my feet were still numb. Ouch. I will get them dyed through the program offered at Peter Fox because they should be fine for a few hours here and there.

Pearl's Place
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I placed an order with Pearls Place because RK Bridal said they would charge me for a rush cut. PS--Pearls Place had the dress to me within 2 weeks! I loved it! Very fast shipping and pleasant customer service.
