Reception- Wonderful experience. **We did NOT need a key for the elevator to get to our room the entire weekend** This was my biggest worry. Didn’t even need a key at all! We had 50 people in the wrap around suite With a full DJ and Catering and all went great! The view is one of the best in vegas hands down. People say on these boards “well i would never have more than 20 people in that hotel room” I’ll tell you 1st hand. You absolutely can! Security wanted us to shut the door and not have the lock keeping the door open and that is all. Cosmo was great to work with.
The Linq Hotel (Silver Sky Chapel) A
Wedding-The chapel is wonderful. I was emailing with Liana for a year before the wedding and she always replied quickly, easy to work with. She was not there the day of the wedding but you wouldn’t even notice. The other girl that was there (i forget her name) was very nice and it was all pretty seamless. All the music was played correctly and she asked me what color for the lights. The hotel only had 1 elevator working that goes to the chapel so that was a bit confusing but it all worked out just fine. People also talk about the “ugly waiting area” outside the chapel? it’s actually kind of nice I knew people had complaints but, It’s really not a thought. The rooms weren't the best, a few people stayed there. It was cheaper so they were happy staying there but if i had to book a room block it wouldn’t be there.
Masterpiece Cuisine A++++++++
Heavy Apps with Full bar and bartender!! Scott the owner was the one who from the beginning over a year ago told me you can have 50 people in this suite he has done it before and it works just fine. He was Correct! I didn’t worry about the catering at all, every single review for this company is great and they were. If you do nothing else for your wedding hire this company and they will take care of it all cleaning everything while they work and i don’t even remember seeing them leave it was seamless. Everyone said food was great, bartender was wonderful!
Culinary Pros C-
I requested a specific DOC from a previous wedding i went too. There were two that day and they sent me the wrong one. She was essential to have because she was there while all of my family was at the wedding while the caterers and DJ were setting up. The particular woman i got was very random and caused more stress than being helpful with a few issues we had. She was not a good manager of people or crowds which is what a DOC is.. so as a previous manager of a company it caused me more stress than anything. After the wedding culinary checked in to see how she was and with my complaints Culinary pros came through after the wedding with wonderful customer service in refunding us for the 8 hours we paid to have her. Culinary also never sent us a contract or talked about how to pay until right before the wedding when i asked. It’s not a huge deal but more of a risk for them than us without one.
Bently & Wilson A++++++++
Another Vender I never worried about. All reviews are great. Todd is very laid back and up for anything. Knows his way around and can just wing it if you have no clue where to go. Should get our pictures back in a week or two and i’m sure they will be great!
Harmony Tapia (Harmony Artistry) A+++++++
Harmony is such a wonderful laid back person. She did an amazing job! My makeup looked better than it ever has, and i am a makeup girl! I showed her a picture of me for my usual every day and what i wanted and she did just that. I didn’t change a thing. Spot on! My curls in my hair didn’t last all day but after an hour in the sun on top of everything else, no ones would have. I was desperate to keep it down but to do it again throwing it up would probably be a better idea. She did my moms hair and makeup and i have never seen her look so good!
DJ Tru-e-nuff B+
Was recommended by DJ Godzilla as a new DJ that will be working for him soon. We had an issue with my coordinator and telling him when we walked in which wasn’t his fault and he did announce us as Mrs. and Mrs. Which was a mistake, but funny.. I think he was nervous and we have boy or girl names so he may not have known at last minute which was which. He also didn’t have our wedding song he had the wrong one, but luckily i had it so it took us a few minutes to hook up my phone but we got it playing. Once that was out of the way and he just started playing music he did a great job lots of different music for all ages. He shutdown his computer at the end of the night and my husband remembered we needed to do speeches (no coordination, part of the coordinator issues) so he turned his laptop back on for us and stayed later. He also included free uplighting for us. which made the room look great.
Jason Bird (Magician) http://magicofjasonbird.com/ A++++++++++++++
If you don’t want do the vegas Elvis stuff like me, HIRE Jason Bird!! He was AMAZING! All of the stories after the wedding are about him and his magic. So Much Fun!!! His tricks aren't like “oh man he picked my card” they are 10 people and myself were watching both of his hands the entire time and how could he have possibly done that? This was one of the better decisions we made having him show up. His price is awesome and he comes for an hour. He came in towards the middle to end of the reception. He was on the balcony the entire time surrounded by people. If i had to do it again i would try to keep him for an additional hour.
We hired them twice once for picking us up at the airport and taking us straight to the marriage license bureau and to our hotel. The other in a 29 passenger bus that took 1 trip from cosmo to the wedding at the linq and 2 trips back and forth from wedding to reception for all guests. All worked out fabulously! So much so that when the driver was at the airport waiting for us my new 18 year old sister in law whose flight was delayed and found my driver at the airport before we got there was able to jump in the car and we had plenty of space to take her to her hotel as well. ON TIME and Called with no issues locating them. I would hire them again!
