Vendors in this Wedding
Thanks to Lauren and her team, our wedding and the entire planning process was flawless! I wanted to partially plan our wedding myself, therefore Fox Events' "Wedding Design & Coordination" package was the perfect fit. Fox Events handled all the aesthetic components (lighting, tent, furniture rental, decor, florals), and I contracted the other vendors myself. Lauren is aesthetically talented and her team set up a jaw-dropping event. I loved working with Lauren because she was always extremely upbeat, openminded, and honest. She professionally spoke up if I had an idea that wasn't logistically sound, and I think it is a tough yet important thing for a planner to do. She had a very strong work ethic and always responded promptly and thoroughly via email or phone. Her flexibility allowed me to make last minute changes seamlessly (like contracting a second rental company). She has great relationships with and thorough knowledge about many first-rate local vendors, which made planning a pinch. Overall, she was very respectful of working within our budget to create the wedding of our dreams. I would highly recommend Fox Events to any bride!
Rob was very responsive and prompt during my wedding planning. His pre-wedding questionnaire was very thorough and it prepared him (and us) well. At our reception, he played the exact music I had requested. In terms of the announcements he made throughout the night, he is professional and kept the focus on us. I'm glad he was recommended to us, and feel that his rates were very fair. Thanks Rob!
Carrie & Alyssa at Paperdolls were incredible to work with. I was so happy with my hair and makeup look, and the required trial is worth every penny. My bridesmaids were also really impressed with the hair styles and service they received for the wedding. The contract and day-of payment was especially easy because they accept Venmo, which allows them to skip the credit card percentage fees that many vendors tack on. My girls that wanted makeup could also make their own separate payments which took a lot of stress off of my shoulders while preparing for the day. Lastly, I heard so many of my vendors tell me that they are "the best in town" when I would mention who I contracted, and I completely agree! I wholeheartedly recommend this awesome team!
My shopping experience at Gown Boutique of Charleston was fantastic, and ultimately I found my gown here after many boutiques. After you find your gown, you are invited to incentives regarding bridesmaids dresses and gown preservation through GBC. My gown was in earlier than expected and the girls worked with me to schedule fittings when I was in the area on holidays. The fitting process was excellent, and the seamstress is very knowledgeable and skilled. For all the work they did, I found the cost to be quite reasonable (they hand-sewed lace to get a better fit). Overall, I was very pleased with my gown and with the customer service from start to finish. I wouldn't have wanted to wear any other dress!
My planner works closely with EventHaus and they were our primary vendor for large rental pieces such as tables, chairs, and umbrellas. They were priced competitively and everything was in excellent condition on the day of the wedding. I found their collection of "unique" pieces to be a bit limited, but those can be easily contracted with a second vendor. Overall, I would highly recommend using EventHaus to make your wedding beautiful.
The Legare Waring House property was an utter dream to be married on! We opted for a Friday wedding because the Saturday price point was quite high for us to consider (however, it all goes towards the park and is money well spent!). The house was comfortable and so beautiful to get ready in on the morning of the wedding, and the groom and groomsmen enjoyed their suite as well. The property is dog friendly, so we had our pup with us to enjoy the day as well. Working with the sales manager, Julie Ann, and site coordinator, Courtney, was a very positive experience from start to finish. They allowed us to peek at a real wedding setup one weekend, and we could enter and plan on the grounds any day before 6pm. The only downside of being married at Legare Waring House is that the hours for weddings are very strict -- 6pm to 11pm, and we feel we could have enjoyed one more hour. A golf cart was at our disposal on the Big Day for our photographer to sweep us to beautiful locations. We are so excited that we will forever be able to visit and relive our marriage at this State Historic Park.
LCVS is the best! I rented the vintage bus for my wedding guests and everyone was raving about it! We received a complimentary getaway car for renting the shuttle and there were many options to choose from. I shopped around to price compare and for what I needed it was the very best deal. Theresa and the operations staff were very knowledgeable and prompt to return my calls and emails. I am very satisfied and I highly recommend!
