Hey ladies. I've only been back on here once since the wedding!! Moving in, Honeymoon, moving more stuff in, and work.... it's no wonder I haven't been able to find time to get on here. My wedding was on 9.12.09 and it was a perfect day. The weather was beautiful (thank goodness since the ceremony was outside). After the ceremony we took the reception into a barn and it was a wonderful night. Great food, great music, barn doors open and a beautiful sunset....... and I'm waiting patiently to get back my pictures from the photographer! Ceremony and Reception Site - Mary Nelle's Windswept Farm (lebanon Ohio) = A+++++ This farm is BEAUTIFUL. It's only been open for a little over a year but unfortunately the owner has recently decided to no longer make it an event place
It's sad because it's a great setting. The owner was great to work with, the grounds of the farm were beautiful and the barn was refurbished inside and looked great! Caterer: Mrs. B's Catering = A+ Mrs. B's was great! Great to work with and Great food. Everyone complemented on how good the food was and they did such a wonderful job with set up and take down Dessert: Mrs. B's catering = A+ Instead of the traditional wedding cake, I went with pies and cupcakes. They were delicious! Photographer = Ashley Begley Photography = A+ Ashley is a close friend and an excellent photographer. I am soooo happy with the few photos I've seen so far and can't wait to see the rest. Music: Ceremony - high school students (quartet) = A++ I work with a lady who has a son that plays in the student Dayton Phil harmonic Orchestra. He rounded up a few of his buddies and they played for the ceremony. They were absolutely WONDERFUL!!!! They were very reasonable and did such a great job I can't... I don't know... they were great!!!! Enough said. Reception - DJ Toad Productions (DJ Phil)= A+ I gave Phil a list of songs I wanted played at the wedding, and ones that I didn't. He did exactly that! He was great to work with and did a wonderful job! Table/chair/linen rental - Kosins = A Everything turned out great. Had no problems with them. Flowers - My Aunt = A+ My Aunt who lives in Cleveland is a retired florists. She put together my flowers and they were GORGEOUS. It was a great day and it went by so fast! We left a week later for a cruise that traveled down the pacific coast and made stops in Canada, San Fran, and San Diego. It was a great time!
