Dayton DJs? Photographers? Flowers?

I am having a wedding next year and now am hunting for an affordable but good dj and photographer in the Dayton area. Any suggestions? And how much should flowers cost? The Flowerman???

    We're going with UR Way Light and Sound for our DJ, and they are extremely resonable- $350 for 4 hours.

    For our photographer, we're using Lisa Rice from Columbus. We just got our engagement pictures taken a few weeks ago and got the images a few days ago. They are amazing and she is extremely talented!

    For our florist, we're going with The Flower Shoppe on Brown St. Mark seems really creative and with reasonable costs, too. The cost all depends on what you want- we're cutting expenses by not doing flowers for the church, not doing floral centerpieces, not doing a bouquet toss, no flowergirl, etc. We're only having flowers for the bridal party and parents/grandparents, and our total should be around $500.

    We got our flowers from Kroger and they did an amazing job. The price they gave us was several hundred dollars cheaper than we found with a florist.

    We are using Galen Mitchell and loved him for our engagement session.  His prices are reasonable and I think he is a preferred Knot vendor.

    Does Krogers actually put everything together for you? I will have to look into that! Thanks for all the comments. :)

    I second Lisa Rice.  She did our engagement photos and we loved them.  She's based out of Columbus and travels often to Dayton and Cinci.

    We went with The Wedding Designer but we almost went with Sherwood Florist, which is in Dayton.  They impressed us with their portfolio and their quote came way below many other florists.

    I just got a recommendation for JMesa Photography (www.jmesaphotography.com). His site is pretty impressive. Contemplating it myself!

    We also used Lisa Rice for our e-pics and wedding and were thrilled with our photos. She is so sweet to work with and has a great eye.
