Our photos turned out beautiful!!! I'm so thrilled we went with limelight. I had a list of photos that I wanted to make sure we got and our photographer made sure that every image was captured. I was a little disappointed with some of the photos only for the fact it seemed like they were in such a hurry to get all the photos on the list they didnt take a look at how the pictures turned out after taking them. We had a few where family was positioned behind and they couldn't be seen in the photos or people's eyes were closed and the picture was not retaken. I half feel this could be my fault for providing a list and a timeline we had to stick to but it would have been nice if a little extra time was taken with the family and bridal party to make sure everyone could be seen and their eyes were open.

Oh girl if you want to feel like you are a celebrity and have your very own off the charts wildy talented glam squad for the day Destiny and Light is it! From my grandma, to my mom and mother inlaw to ALL of my bridesmaid everyone looked drop dead gorgeous. I couldn't believe how stunning everyone looked at the end of the day. Hair and make up was on point! Seriously all my bridesmaids looked like models and my hair and make up didn't move all night. No one looked cakey, just elegant and fabulous. I can't wait to use them for my next big event! Highly HIGHLY recommend.

The meals were absolutely delicious. All of our guests raved about the high quality of the filet mignon and the amount of real crab that was in everyone's Corn Chowder with lump crab soup. It was amazing they were able to serve 100 people with the quality of the finest restaurant.

We had Melissa and Dan drawing Caricatures as favors during the cocktail hour and the reception. All of our guests raved over these two. They were absolutely amazing. They even stayed an extra hour to make sure all of our guests got the perfect photos. If you are looking for a unique favor for your guests Melissa and Dan are the way to go!

Beth was outstanding! She was so organized and kept me sane throughout the entire process. She had all the vendors ready to go and only came to me about important things otherwise she took care of the rest and it went flawlessly. I am so thrilled I had her for the weekend. It would have stressed me out if I didn't have her throughout the day :)

Mark Silverstein I will say hands down is the best ring designer in the world. Everywhere I go I get compliments on my unique engagement ring. Mark's designs are incredible and customer service is fantastic. I would highly recommend him for your engagement ring or band!

This wedding videographer was amazing!!! They came highly recommended from a friend and we couldn't have been happier. The shots they took were beautiful, they used a drone to capture the ariel views of the hotel which was so cool. We received the 1 minute trailer just 2 days after the wedding while we were getting ready to board the plane for our honeymoon and were overjoyed. It looked like a movie. All of our friends and family were extremely impressed. Then in just 4 weeks we had received our 5 min trailer as well as all the raw footage back. Gio even worked with me on adding in some special clips I wanted after the initial 5 min trailer was released. He was fantastic. Best part about this vendor is they were extremely affordable and for 7 hours of service the price and quality could not be beat!

I absolutely loved my wedding dress!!! I knew the moment I put it on it was mine. It was so me. Classy but yet unique. I'm trying to figure out how to display it so I can see it every day!

Zoe and her team at Botanica out did themselves and exceeded my wildest expectations. I gave her a vision of what I wanted and was blown away the first time I walked into the ballroom. It was absolutely breath taking. They could not have done a better job. I would recommend them to anyone!

Venue | This is a verified review

The entire staff at the Loews Don CeSar was incredible. Everyone took special effort to make all of our guests feel welcome and have an amazing experience. The food was excellent, the rooms were beautiful and the property overall was outstanding. We received tons of compliments on everything. Beth and Alexandra went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect on our day. The reason I did not give them a highly recommend is that after the wedding we spent 3 months fighting on the final bill. As they tried to overcharge us numerous times with me having to take time out of my work day to do their accounting departments job and catch their mistakes. Also a lot of our guests had issues with the hotel charging their credit cards and it taking more than a week to remove the "holds" that were put on them for the rooms. Other than the billing situation it was perfect.

Words can't describe how incredibly gifted and talented this team of all GIRL DJS is!!!! I first met Kristin at a bridal show and was immediately drawn to her. She had this amazing personality and I had seen what felt like a million male DJs who never got me the way she did. After only speaking to her for 5 min she completely got the vision I was going for. The day of she was beyond perfect and had everyone on the dance floor all night. I'm literally trying to figure out what event I can throw next to have her again. When the music for your big day is the most important thing to you DO NOT trust anyone else but Kristin because My DJ truly did ROCK!

I found this vendor on pinterest. At first I was a little skeptical at their extremely low prices and quick delivery but soon found out that there was no need for skepticism. The invitations were perfect, unique and beautiful. We received a million compliments on how gorgeous they were. The company was fantastic too going back and forth with design changes and always was quick to respond during their operating hours. If you want beautiful invitations with out the expensive price tag Elegant Wedding Invites is the way to go!

Cakes by Carolynn truly had the best tasting cakes out of anyone. I tried probably 15 different cakes for the wedding and couldn't believe how moist and delicious their cakes were. I thought there was no way it was going to be that moist the day of the wedding on a 4 tier cake...boy was I wrong. We had so many compliments on it being the best wedding cake anyone had ever had!

Photo Booths | This is a verified review
Highly Recommend!

Our photobooth rocks was a huge hit! I was thinking that photobooths at weddings were probably starting to loose their appeal but my husband really wanted one. I'm glad he made us get one. Everyone loved it! The attendant was super helpful and the props were amazing. We also used them as a video booth as well instead of a guest book :)
