hey guys I just had my wedding 2 weeks ago and thought for those still in the planning stages I would throw out the recomendations from my wedding for vendors
Flowers we went with Oyster Bay in the NE they were amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!! very resonable worked totatlly with my budget and the flowers were AMAZING!!!
Wedding planning - we went with a day of coordinator - Amanda Brown and the Calgary Wedding Planning Company - she was the best thing I did through all my planning so worth the money for the extensive list of things she does day of
Photographer James Lam of JL Photography
Just a wonderful man to work with - amazing turn around time and stunning photo's he took some beautiful shots of my wedding.
Hype entertainment - WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO awesome these guys just amazing!!!!!!!!!! he had even the seniors up doing the conga line and the ymca and having an amazing time
we rented a shuttle bus from Cardinal Charters they were great - one bus down and then supposed to be 4 busses back but we decided against the 1st and 4th run and they did not charge us for them as we did not use them they were great and very accomadating - I dealt with Johnette. it was a upgraded school bus so white with nicer seats - it was still a school bus but it was perfect and much more reasonable than the limo companies so if you are looking at a charter of some kind check them out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and finally we got married in the DeWinton community center
just outside of calgary and a stunning venue beautiful not very community centery at all - hardwood floors and a huge high ceiling. just gorgeous, Greg Davenport was wonderful to deal with and it was just a pleasure to be there for our day
hope that is useful to someone
