Kelly's Closet is the place to go if you want a nontraditional dress from a different era or with a different look. Everyone at Kelly's Closet was great to work with, very patient but provided knowledgeable feedback. They were always easy to get on the phone and made what could have been a nerve racking event seem easy and fun. They really know what they are doing.

Sound & Lighting Design | This is a verified review

On-site production did a good job. They did not have images for their lighting work they had done at our venue but we talked through many options. We decided on a few things but I am not sure we got exactly what we wanted. This could have been due to our lack of knowledge or just miscommunication. Despite that, this company communicates very well and in a timely manner. I think they honestly want to give you what you want, just make sure you know what that is! :)

Highly Recommend!

Aldridge Gardens was a beautiful venue and everyone was really easy to work with. I would pick this place again and couldn't imagine having our wedding any other location. The atmosphere is calm, natural, and peaceful. The proximity to Birmingham and the surrounding areas is also wonderful.

Highly Recommend!

Yellow Bicycle Catering was great to work with. The catering manager, Cathy, was super laid back but always on top of every detail. We went back and forth many times and they were always happy to make changes and stick to our budget. The food was absolutely phenomenal and people are still talking about the dinner.

Highly Recommend!

Pastry Arts is a great company with an amazing product. If you want to go with a dessert that is nontraditional and a little quirky then the Cake Bites are perfect. All of our guests loved the different flavors and could not stop talking about how great they were, even weeks after the wedding!

Ashley is a wonderful day-of-planner. Everything went off without a hitch (or at least it felt that way to us). She had everything organized and handled which took a lot of pressure off of us. She was very timely on emails and communication, always providing me with peace of mind.

Photographer | This is a verified review
Highly Recommend!

Andrea Mabry is by far the most talented, authentic, and awesome photographer. She has a beautiful eye and every shot takes your breath away. She sets you at ease from the start. There are many great photographers out there, but Andrea won't just be your photographer, she will be your friend, your accomplice, your guide, and your artist. She is one of a kind.

Cathy was nice to work with but a little scattered. Despite that, the flowers were beautifully done. She stuck to my minimal color palette and added small pops of color. The bridesmaids bouquets were gorgeous! Overall, Cathy is great to work with and really cares about her craft.
