Photographer: Rebecca Keeling Studios
I can't say enought wonderful things about Rebecca & Gregg. They also shot our engagement photos. We love them and the work that they do. Because it was windy & rainy on our wedding day, we weren't able to take photos outside, but they scouted some great locations indoors and our pictures turned out amazing.
Florist: Jeff’s Flowers, Of Course
Beautiful! At my first consultation all I really knew was that I wanted purple flowers and I had to stick to my budget. They had some really great ideas and were able to completely work with my vision and stick to the budget. The flowers arrived at the hotel on time and were more beautiful than I could have hoped for.Chivari Chairs: Affordable & Luxury Tents
Super easy to work with. Chairs arrived on time and in great condition.Cake: Big Cakes & Little Cakes by Cheryl
Perfection! I wanted something a little different for our cake (a cake pop cake), and it was based off a picture I found on Pinterest. Cheryl completely got the concept and was able to bring my vision to life. Not only was the cake beautiful it was delicious too! People were having so much fun picking out their favorite flavors. Again, people are still raving about the cake.
DJ: Red Rox Entertainment
DJ Rob was great. Kapt everything moving and on time. Played everything on the playlist, and only one thing off the do not play list, but at that point it didn't matter. We had so much fun dancing!
Hair: Brandi Peeks
Brandi is my regular hair dresser, so it was a no brainer to hire her for the wedding too. Affordable & professional. Also, did my MOH & MOB hair. Hair was perfect and stayed up all night.
Make-Up: Animare Salon
Located right around the corner from the hotel. Super convenient. Make up was flawless and lasted all night.
Bride's & Flower Girl's Dresses: David's Bridal
Loved my dress! It took a trip to Richmond to actually buy the dress as Hampton & Norfolk did not have it in stock. Alterations were done at the Hampton location which I recommend. I had originally thought I would take the dress to a tailor closer to where I live, but decided to stick with David's in spite of hearing how expenseive their alterations can be. Glad I did though, because at the last minute we needed a piece of lace to add to the dress and luckily David's had it. If I had taken it elsewhere I would have been SOL. Flower girl's dress was purchased online through David's. Great price and arrived on my doorstop within 2 business days.
