Let's do it again!
Our wedding day was the best day of our lives. Period. Honestly, I'm still floating on cloud 9... I am completely unmotivated to write vendor reviews, simply because everything and everyone was fantastic. The rehearsal, the ceremony, the reception, the friends and family celebrating together-- it was all truly overwhelming, and I feel so blessed and lucky to have had such an incredible experience. So, that being said, more detailed reviews will appear in a "Married Bio," but till then, here is a list of places, people, and companies that helped make our wedding day so magnificent. Most of these vendors have websites that can be found easily through Google, but you can also look at my planning bio if you want some direct links. I would recommend all of the following without reservation: Caterer (Rehearsal and Reception)-- Martha's CateringCeremony-- Sycamore Presbyterian ChurchPhotographer-- Lowry Photo (Greg Christophel was our photographer, along with an assistant photographer)Florist-- A Gathering of Flowers (Terri Muennich)Ceremony Music-- Altissimo (a string-quartet student group) Dresses-- David's Bridal (Kenwood-- ask for Kathy)Alterations-- Pauline Miller (her business is "Stitches by Pauline")Tuxes-- Folchi's FormalwearTent/Rentals-- Kosins (out of Dayton) Beverage Service-- Bars on WheelsD.J.-- Wavemakers Media (ask for Kevin)Stationery-- Invitations were from Land of Oz (Cheviot), programs were through Kinkos, and all other stationery was done through Vistaprint.comHair/Beauty-- My awesome friend Tina, and she works at Anthony's Salon in Bridgetown. Hotel-- Hyatt Place in Deerfield Township-------------------------------------------------------I'm sure there is something that I am missing, but this is what I have off the top of my head!
If you want any more details on anything, please feel free to ask. This board has given me more than just well-informed decisions in the planning process, but it brought me a new set of friends as well. If there is anything I can give back to this board, it's my experience and advice-- but only if you ask for it
My husband (EEEE!!!) and I paid for this ourselves, and I am very proud to say that we didn't charge a dime. It took a lot of research and a lot of planning, but we did it. And if I can help someone else accomplish this goal, then I will what I can to help out. :)Our wedding day was perfect for us... and it is my sincere hope that all you ladies will be able to say the same thing after your own special days. Thanks to all, and good luck! ~Jen
