08/01/09 Vendor Reviews!

We had such a perfect day for our wedding! Hope that some of you will find these reviews helpful!Reception Hall - Perry Community Center A ++++ What can I say about our venue! Gorgeous! Michele Woltman is great to work with and it is very reasonably priced, even if you are not a Perry resident! We got lots of compliments about the location right on the  lake and the views from our guests.Catering - Normandy Catering out of Wickliffe Ohio  A+++ Normandy had EXCELLENT food! We got many compliments on the food and how excellent it was. Pam King - the sales coordinator.... was like a wedding coordinator for me that day. She was absolutly amazing. Sometimes hard to get a hold of, but she surely delivered! The linens were excellent and the bartenders and wait staff were very professional and curtious. Flowers - Bleils Secret Garden  Mentor Ohio - A+++ What can I say about Bleils! Joann Henry is amazing. I had no idea what I wanted for my bouquet but she totally read my mind. The flowers were stunning and the centerpieces were exactly what I wanted, and then some! Photography - Ken Blaze Cleveland Ohio - A+ Ken was phenomenal! Half the time I didn't realize he was even there. He was very professional and fun to be around. I can't wait to see the final product!DJ- Family friend C - Up to the wedding, I was very excited to have a family friend DJ our wedding. My dad works with this guy and he DJ's at bars and such. Apparently  his girlfriend broke up with him the night before and he got hammered that night, so he was hung over the day of the wedding. Our reception was supposed to end at midnight and alcohol end at 11.... but he assumed since alcohol was ending that the reception was ending... My dad talked him in to staying until 11:30... The music selection was Ok, Nothing like we had talked about previously.. he played the wrong song for the bouquet toss... I would give him a worse grade, but people were dancing and having a great time so I guess it wasn't all the horrible.Officiant - Dr. Rick Rickards Cleveland Heights Ohio - C+He delivered... but he worried me up until about a week before. He was almost impossible to get a hold of. He is an older gentleman and is still a practicing veterinarian so he works ALOT. His wife did the rehearsal for us, but I was under the impression that she couldn't do a rehearsal until 2 days before hand. If he wasn't so hard to get a hold of, he would have gotten a better grade. People did compliment on the ceremony, however it was mainly myself and my husband who put it together.Cake -  Miss Molly - Perry Ohio CFirst appointment with her, she forgot we were coming. Day before the wedding, she copped an attitude with me about the time for her to be at the hall to set up. Cake was nothing special. No compliments on the cake. The design though was exactly what I wanted.Hair - R. Rose and Comany - Madison, Ohio A+All of the girls were so friendly and nice. We were served with champagne and an assortment of breakfast goodies. All of our hair lasted the whole night and I received lots of compliments on my hair and makeup! Chelsea did my hair and did a fantastic job!Ceremony Music - Tom Poore - South Euclid Ohio A++Tom was excellent! He was great at returning emails, and his music was beautiful. He played guitar for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. I felt bad I had him play for cocktail on the patio because I figured more people would be out there mingling on such a pretty day. He can take any song you like and transfer it to guitar. He did this for my procesional song. He was very profesional and his music was beautiful!Other random vendors include:Tracey's scrapbooking shop (Mentor Mall) A+ Designed a guestbook for me!Davids Bridal (Lyndhurst) A+ Bridesmaid dresses  Bridal Elegance (Erie) A+ Wedding gown  lots of compliments on my gown - 450 dollars! Everyone loved it.Tuxedo Junction (Mentor) A+ No problems. Everything was adjusted accordingly when needed. Everything came in ordered correctly.Etsy.com A+ wonderful website for finding miscellanious items. Jewelry, hair piece and ringbearer pillow all bought on etsyOverall, the wedding was more than I could have asked for minus a few iffy vendors. All in all, everyone had a great time!

    I'm glad you enjoyed Tom's guitar playing - we used to get to enjoy it every day  - Tom rented the apartment upstairs from us until last year when he moved out. We used to look forward to Wednesday nights and Saturday mornings when he would have students over for lessons. He's an excellent player and a great guy. If you talk to him again tell him Becki and Mike say hi!
