Kelli was great to work with! She came to my house for the trial and tried a few things with me to see what worked best! Her prices are great, $200 for bridal and $65 for bridesmaids, and that's for airbrush! She's very professional and easy to work with!

I was very pleased with Chryssies Bridal, my only problems were with the alterations department. The woman who does them is only available tuesday and thursday nights, so it's not very easy getting there at those times if you don't live close. She's good at what she does, but she won't really listen to what you have to say, and tries to push her ideas on you. I ended up having a problem with the neckline, which wasn't a huge deal in the end, but was something that could have been avoided. I also wanted buttons added to cover the zipper, but she only put the buttons on, without loops. So they only sat on the side, instead of actually covering the zipper!
I would recommend Chryssies to buy your dress, the woman who work there are fabulous. But I would also say to go somewhere else for the alterations!

We had Ronny from Curtis Knight Ent. for our DJ, and he was fantastic! He played all the music I had requested. He did play a few from my do not play list, but once the floor was packed, I didn't care! Everyone was on the floor all night long and he did a fabulous job of getting a feeling of the wedding and playing what he felt was right! I was a little skeptical when I only had to put 20 songs on my must play list, but in the end, he knew what he was doing. We also got the basic lighting package($100) to add some sparkle to the dancing and it was just enough! I'd definetly recommend anyone from CKE!

We just had our reception at Groveland Fairways, and I can't say enough about it! Our guests loved the room and the grounds! It it spacious enough that guests aren't sitting on top of eachother, but still makes for a very cozy setting! Alicia is a sweetheart to work with, very quick to respond to any questions! They set up the whole room for me, since I didn't have many vendors coming in to do it! The room is gorgeous and clean, and the staff is great! There's an outdoor patio with a bar for cocktail hour, and a ceremony space if you're getting married there. And as an added bonus, they have chivari chairs, so there's an expense you don't have to argue about with your fiance! I would definetly recommend Groveland Fairways to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding!

Harborside Catering
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I would, without a doubt, recommend Harborside for any catering job, not just weddings! The food was amazing, the service was great, prices you can't beat and Maura is wonderful to work with! Our first meeting went very smooth, we told her what we like and don't like, and she created an awesome menu for us. STaying very mindful of our budget. Then, after our meeting, we were treated to lunch at the restaurant. When we went for our tasting, we were expecting a couple little bites of food, but instead had a full spread! Way too much for just the two of us, but of course we still ate it! Serving the food at the wedding was so quick. The meals came right out, without having to wait at all, so when it was time to dance...it was time to dance! ANd your guests will absolutley think you dropped a ton of money, the food is just so good! Our breakdown was....110 guests. 4 passed apps-crabcakes, scallops wrapped in bacon, proscuitto crostini, stuffed mushrooms. Mixed green salad with cheddar, apples, cranberrys. Entree-petit filet mignon with diver scallops or rosemary chicken(and about 80/20% on the filet/chicken). With tax and tip was just about $6,000. In Boston area, that's quite the deal! And the quality is not at all missing, our guests are still talking about how good it was! And a lot of couple are planning date nights to Michaels Harborside!

Michael and Tricia Films
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I can't say enough about Michael! I decided last minute that I wanted a videographer, and was so excited to find Michael and Tricia Films! They were right at my budget and their style was exactly what I was looking for. He was so easy to work with and no one even knew we had a videographer there, he was so discreet! I just recieved my highlight video and it's absolutely amazing! I can't wait to get the rest of it! I would definetly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a videographer. And to anyone that's on the fence about getting one at all...DO IT! You will be so happy you have it!

I used vistaprint for my last minute menus, programs and RD invitations. After deciding I didn't want to DIY everything! They have so many choices for anything you need, and the prices are really good! You can usually find coupons online too for even more savings. The only things I didn't like were the quantity options, and shipping options. Say you need 125 of something, you;ll probably have to buy 200. And with shipping, the cheapest option takes 21 days. Overall, a great place to get your paper needs!
