Vendors in this Wedding
We love Erik and Marissa! They do a great job making you feel comfortable in front of a camera, which can sometimes (all the time) feel awkward if you're not used to it. They are easy to work with, a joy to be around and their photos are amazing. They captured our day perfectly, we go back and relive it through their work constantly. They were speedy getting our photos to us which we greatly appreciated. And again, their work is beautiful, it's real and we love that so much about our shots. We highly recommend them!
Rosario was a picturesque location to have our wedding at. It had all of the elements of a "one stop shop" wedding venue, without any of the mundane, same as every other place, options. The views were incredible, the staff was warm and welcoming and Laurie and Jolene, who helped us along the way were wonderful to work with. Even months later we still have friends and family talking about the beautiful and perfect spot we chose.
I worked with Miranda at the Downtown Seattle Nordstrom Wedding Suite and couldn't have asked for more. Miranda was kind and knowledgeable when it came to choosing my dress. It took two appointments to pick, she didn't pressure me, and she could tell when I was getting overwhelmed by the comments from those I had brought to help decide. She was in contact with the designer of my dress from the moment I decided on it. Making little tweaks to make it my own. Miranda was a blessing to have in the exciting and nerve racking time of picking a dress and seeing it all the way through to the final fitting. I cannot thank her enough. And the dress designer, Olia Zavozina, what a gem. She will customize any of her designs in order to make the bride happy. There were so many times I wanted to fly to Nashville and meet her, to thank her for making me the perfect dress. I know it sounds so silly, but she truly made me feel like a princess.
We worked with Chelsea at Flora D'Amore and she was so helpful and accommodating to us. We decided early on to have the women of each family arrange the centerpieces for dinner as a sort of bonding time. After Chelsea helped us pick flowers and the look we were going for she helped us create a step by step guide to put together the centerpieces. I can't thank her enough for doing that. Flor D'Amore put together all of the bouquets and boutonnieres and they were gorgeous. So perfect and exactly what we wanted. They also did an amazing job handling our somewhat difficult delivery location. From Everett to Orcas is no small feat, they were prompt and the flowers were fresh. I would recommend them to anyone looking for beautiful and high quality wedding flowers.
How lucky were we to get to work with Jen Leslie Events, so lucky! Admittedly I searched high and low for a day of coordinator. Being that we got engaged at the end of January and were planning our wedding for Labor Day weekend, I was little late to the game. I don't know what I had done right the day that I found Jen but oh my goodness I still feel lucky. Jen was so easy to work with. She got all of the crazy ideas I threw at her and she made them into something beautiful and perfect. She is very professional and a delight to be around. As someone who wants to do everything herself, Jen was there to make sure I had realistic expectations of my time as a bride and took care of everything I simply couldn't do myself. She kept everyone organized, picked up slack where other vendors were missing details and kept everything going so cohesively. Jen has a great eye for design and does wonders with flowers. I would highly recommend her to anyone planning an event, not only weddings.
We never actually met Micheal, but boy did he get the job done. I think he lives on the Island and has done many events at Rosario. I spoke to him maybe twice before the wedding, he got my idea, put up the lighting and that was it. Easy to work with and does a great job.
Chris Taylor of Nalabe designs created my perfect wedding invitation. I had seen a wedding suite he had done for a girl I had gone to college with, I was in love with everything about her invitation. When it came time to choose my own I knew exactly who to go to. Even though we were on opposite sides of the country it was very easy to work with Chris. He is very professional and made the process of designing fun. I've received countless compliments on my invitation, they really are a work of art.
Ashli was great to work with. She is high energy and great at what she does. She graciously made the trek all the way from Seattle and I couldn't have been happier with the way myself and my bridesmaids looked that day.
This DJ double booked our wedding date after he accepted our deposit and we were sent someone who had never done a wedding before. The DJ missed some cues, didn't bring the equipment we requested, and wasn't prepared with the music we had requested in advance. Maybe we just got them on a bad day, however, we wouldn't recommend them.
