Memories of the day…: In a word, amazing! It was everything we had hoped for and more. We felt overwhelmingly loved that day. From the moment Shawn and Aaron arrived everything felt at ease, like a couple of friends were there with us to capture our special day. They are incredible! We wish we could go back and do it all over again.
Did you have a “theme”?: Vintage/Rustic with a pop of yellow! I don’t know if that counts as a theme, but that was my vision and I think I pulled it off!
Vendor #1 Name: Brookside Banquet Center/Culinary Catering
Vendor #1 Notes: We loved working with the people at Brookside. When we first met Sally and George, we knew we wanted to pick this venue & and catering service. They are extremely down to earth, friendly, and would go out of their way to make your day special. The prices were great too, but what it came down to for us was their customer service. We would recommend them to all of our friends and family. Kim, who pulled off our reception was amazing. Our night wouldn’t have been the same without her.
Vendor #2 Name: Nova Vita Hair Salon
Vendor #2 Notes: Best of the best! They treated myself and all of my girls like we were princesses on my wedding day and the days leading up to it. My hair is hard to work with, but my stylist (Jen Lanno) was absolutely amazing and gave me exactly what I wanted.
Vendor #3 Name: Garbers Bridal
Vendor #3 Notes: I was absolutely dreading dress shopping being that I am not a size 2 and hearing horror stories that most bridal stores do not carry anything bigger than that. We stepped into Garbers Bridal and I was immediately put at ease. The very first dress I tried on was “the one”. They have something for everyone, and their staff were extremely knowledgable and friendly.
Vendor #4 Name: Kettle Creek Weddings
Vendor #4 Notes: Our officiant was Andrew Dow. We wanted something laid back, non-traditional and a little bit fun and he delivered on all counts. Nothing but good things to say about Kettle Creek!
