We booked a limo bus for our rehearsal lunch/dinner which took place the day before our wedding. The driver picked our wedding party up from the hotel and drove us to the Hibachi Grill in Laurel, MD. We had so much fun! The rehearsal set the tone for the wedding!
After the rehearsal lunch the driver took myself and my bridesmaids to several stores to get any last minute items we would need. We were so grateful for having such a wonderful driver.

The day of the wedding we really did not need the limo driver until after the wedding was over to take myself and my husband back to the hotel. In addition, he was available to take any of our family members back to the hotel if they felt they wanted to leave early.

Overall the staff was extremely helpful and professional, I was very pleased with the limo shuttle and the actual limo for the wedding. All of the limos, shuttles and dodge charger limos look wonderful on site! The owner is all about customer service and really takes the time to talk to you if you are unsure about how much time is needed for renting the vehicles. In addition, he gives honest suggestions about what you may need on your special day.

I definetly would book Bayside again and would recommend this company to anyone inquiring about professional and quality service!

Thanks again Bayside!

I would recommend Blue Sky Films for any wedding or any event. We chose to use them for our wedding June 11, 2011 and they were professional from the beginning. I think his name was Neil but he was so great during the wedding. I honestly forgot he was there in the dressing rooms, the ceremony and reception.

The highlight video they made was perfect and very professional. I would recommend them again!

I love Jamie and Natalie they are great! I recommend them for your wedding, special events, etc. As usual I'm always late but my review for them is nothing but positivity. They are professional, funny and very nice ladies who work well together.

We used them for our engagement photos as well as the wedding and I am very impressed with their work. They made us a fantastic wedding album that I am so proud of. They really are talented and professional with their business.

Thank you Jamie and Natalie for working with us and capturing our special day perfectly!

Sorry for the late review! We used Vicky Johnson and team for our wedding June 11, 2011 and I must say she was wonderful! Vicky saw the list of vendors I wanted to use and told me what she knew about those vendors and even suggested vendors I had never heard of. She is very well known, therefore she was able to set up vendor tastings and meetings. You could tell she knew these vendors well because they were all so at ease with her.

She helped us plan our wedding budget and had to remind me on occasions to stick to the plan (I was drifting lol). What can I say wedding planning was so much fun, money almost became an afterthought lol.

I should have reminded her but Vicky did forget to pick up my husband's groomscake from SugarBaker's to bring over for the rehearsal dinner/husband's bday celebration however she quickly made up for it by presenting my husband another cake. At first I was alittle disappointed however it was all good because we presented it at the wedding and then took it the leftovers home. That truly was the only glich we had with her.

She was wonderful the day of the wedding, the florists forgot to bring and make our flower girl purses so she handled that and didn't look like she broke a sweat. Thankfully, they came back with the purses completed because I probably would have been so disappointed.

We both love Vicky because of course she is/was professional the entire time. her staff were great and we are very grateful for God bringing her into our lives and helping us celebrate the best moment of our lives! I highly recommend using Vicky!

Percy was so great! I'm writing a very late review, our wedding was June 11, 2011. We absolutely loved working with Percy! We met him at his house and he showed us a show a real production in his basement!! He asked us what kind of music we liked and in less than 5 minutes he had the genres of music playing, mixing well, lighting going and we were just way too impressed!

The day of the wedding he was wonderful, one of the mics ws not turned on when my hostess was reading the scripture however he turned it on right at the most important time. Everything was just fine.

At the reception he was entertaining and lively and I was so impressed with his professionalism and correct pronunciations of our names. :)
I would highly recomment Percy for your wedding!

I love Maya Couture! Our wedding was in Maryland however we lived in VA. Thank God for this boutique, this is the only wedding boutique I would suggest in the Hampton Roads area. They host trunk shows and events at their site for soon to be brides.

They really know how to take care of their brides. The altering of dresses was perfect, we had no issues. Even when I wanted to order sample fabric for my wedding gown they were on top of it for me. I purchased my veil there as well.

I was just impressed by the knowledge of the staff that I would recommend them again!

What can I say about SugarBakers?! I had read about sugarBakers on the internet and decided to see them in action at a bridal show first. Their samples were so good, that confirmed to me that we needed to book SugarBakers for our wedding.

Our wedding planner Vicky Johnson set up our cake tasting shortly there after and I must say...I walked away with that tasting wanting to buy the cake slices on hand at their bakery. The samples were soooo good. I think her name was Jamie but she described all the flavors and fillings for us at the tasting. I supplied a few inspirations for the wedding cake and they did not disappoint the replication. If anything they made it look 10 times better.

Everyone at the wedding loved the cake flavors and the look of the cake. We even had the Groom's cake made with inspiration and they made that red velvet cake so moist and delicious!

If anyone is thinking about using SugarBakers I would not hesitate they were good, provided a free top tier for our anniversary and I still crave for them since we moved.

I had absolutely no problems with the Dessy Group for our wedding June 11, 2011! We had chosen plum bridesmaid dresses from them as well as 2 flower ivory dresses. All the dresses were made well and were gorgeous. I would definitely recommend them!
