Vendor reviews

I posted these in October but they never got added to the Seattle bio. I wanted to post them again so my ceremony musicians can get the review, they are trying to build up their business.

Ceremony and Reception: Sunset Hill Community Club: C http://www.sunsethillcommunity.com
I liked the space, but Cynthia was a nightmare the day of, she was rude to guests, moved stuff around. I was assured it would be clean, it was filthy, my DOC spent over an hour sweeping and mopping before the ceremony, then the venue made her stay and do the same afterwards in order for us to get our deposit back. I wouldn't recommend them really, the space is alright if you like having a split set-up, but not worth it.

Emily was great, reasonably priced, got me some great vendor discounts and did an amazing job, highly recommend! She saved my life.

Officiant: Eric Warn: A -

He was a little cheesy, but did a good job, a bit overpriced in my opinion.

Caterer: Browns Catering: A

Bakery: Kelli's Cake Creations: A+++

Florist: Perfect Petal Designs: A+++

Sharon did an amazing job, my flowers looked exactly like I wanted them to, and she was priced a lot lower than anywhere else. Highly recommend!

Can
I say I should have listened to my coordinator when she advised against using this vendor? Cheap prices for a reason, they showed up 30 minutes late, despite my doc confirming them and calling them 3 times when they weren’t there on time. They didn't take several of my must have pics, finished product was very disappointing. Don't use!!!

Ceremony and Cocktail Hour Musicians: Encore Four: A    http://www.encorefour.com/default.htmI
I didn't hear too much of them, but what I did hear was great, they looked nice and were really easy to work with. Highly recommend!

Make-up: Blush: A++++   
http://www.iloveblush.com/
Great job! Shannon Mercil did my makeup and I looked and felt amazing, definitely worth the price. Highly recommend!

Wedding Dress: Craigslist A++    
Can you review craigslist? I Bought a $2400 dress for $450, it was great!

of cheating, I asked my coordinator to make my paper products, she did it at a great price and did an amazing job, not her typical gig, but highly recommend!

    You!!! I was TRYING to remember who had used Sunset Hill and wanted to copy and save your longer explanation of what Cynthia did that was so bad (it's my venue for reception) and that's RIGHT when TK changed format and broke my link to the thread and I couldn't find it again. Thanks for reposting! :D

    BTW, what was Encore Four's pricing? I HATE that most musicians don't give ideas of pricing on their websites!

    Browns:
    prime rib & lemon baked salmon with a vegan portobello option, it was a little different because we did sit down instead of buffet.
    We did a pear salad and some passed apps: jumbo prawns, crab cakes, and tartlets.
    I did use their linens, although my DOC ordered me overlays because they did not have the color I wanted. But service was great. I was a little nervous because we had a less than impressive tasting, but the day of they did not dissapoint.

    Encore Four:

    They charged me $250, I don't know what there normal rate is though, we got a discount from them because they have a discount arranged for our DOC.

    On behalf of KrazyBird Photography:

    I am the owner/photographer of KrazyBird Photography. As a photographer, I am sorry to hear about your poor photography experience. I read the review you posted online about our services and am greatly confused on who performed your photography services on July 18, 2009. Unfortunately, we could not have been the photographers you booked with aw we were shooting a wedding in Renton on the date of your ceremony. In reading the full review, I also noticed that the location is somewhere we have never been. Given those facts, I believe you might have confused us with another company.
     
    I'm sure you know that as a wedding vendor, we depend on the happiness of our clients for referals and have the highest standards for the quality of our work. We cover with all our clients during our pre-event consultations that if you are not happy with the images, we are not happy either. My wife and I had poor images from our own wedding and realize how horrifying it is and that is the primary reason we are so stringent on our image's quality.
     
    I sincerely hope you will take the time to contact me directly so we can figure out what happened to your images and if we were in any way responsible for them.
     
    Thank you for your time,
    Ron Lunsford
    Owner - KrazyBird Photography
