Vendors in this Wedding
I was so worried about hiring a good florist on my smaller budget. I also have expensive taste and knew that it would be tricky to stay within a reasonable budget and get the look I wanted. Iris Floral & Event Studio was even more amazing than I could have hoped and they were very affordable for the quality of their arrangements. My favorite flower is soft pink peonies, which are not cheap. They suggested adding in garden roses which have a very similar look and are less expensive. Overall my bouquet was absolutely beautiful…exactly what I wanted. My bridesmaids all carried white hydrangea bouquets that were nice and full. The men’s boutonnieres were very well done, simple and masculine. They also did a beautiful job with the ceremony décor and they decorated the cake table. They have a very current, clean eye for floral design. Overall, I was extremely pleased!!! I would highly recommend them for any of your floral needs!
Oh My Goodness….This band rocks!!!! They were the entertainment highlight of our wedding!!! I can’t say enough great things about this band. Fear not, this is not your typical dreaded “wedding singer” band. They cover just about any genre of music… we wanted anything from Lady Gaga to Professor Longhair and they rocked it! They really know how to play to the audience! Our main focus of our wedding was to make it a fun party. Groovy 7 had everyone on the dance floor all night. After our wedding, our friends all told us how much they loved the band. Even, my two new step-sons, who never want to dance, had a blast dancing! Seeing the boys have so much fun was the highlight for my husband and me! We didn’t want the party to end! I would highly recommend Groovy 7!!!
Their price point for bridesmaid's dresses was great. I didn't want my girls to have to spend a fortune for something they will truly only wear once. Also, they have a combination of styles in each color. I let my girls all pick different dresses in the same color. It gave just enough unity and allowed each girl to select a style they liked.
We selected their top tier menu option and added an additional hour to the reception time. The food was amazing! I only wish I would have had a chance to eat a little more. Our friends and family made a point to tell us how much they enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Rosy’s is a true New Orleans Jazz Hall and it was made to throw a party! I highly recommend the added time, it’s such a fun venue; you are not going to want the party to end! If you want your guests walking away saying they have never had so much fun at a wedding, then Rosy’s is your place!
Rosy’s is the perfect New Orleans wedding venue. It has it all under one roof. The courtyard was a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony & then guests just have to step inside and the party starts! Darlene & Steve truly understand how to throw an amazing wedding!!!! Not to mention the reasonable price for the high level of service and overall quality.
Finding the perfect dress was on the top of my priority list for my wedding. I spent hours looking at countless dresses on the internet before I contacted my favorite local bridal salon, Simply Elegant. Debbie & Bob West, the owners have outfitted me for every special occasion in my life. Their bridal salon and inventory of dresses will take your breath away and the staff is so wonderful and professional. Not to mention that they carry lines and designers that won’t break the bank and look much more expensive than the price tag on them. They didn’t have the dress I my heart set on that I had found online. So they went out of their way to get the sample in so I could try it. It was perfect, everything I had hoped for and more! I wore the “Billy” from Maggie Sottero for the Sottero & Midgley line. My husband’s eyes lit up when he saw me & he told me that he didn’t know they made wedding dresses that beautiful and sexy too! His expression was above and beyond what I had hoped for. Debbie & Bob and the rest of the team at Simply Elegant made me feel like the most elegant, beautiful bride on my wedding day! Best of all my dress came in under budget and was a big WOW to my husband! Trust Simply Elegant for any of your bridal needs!!!!
Fantastic food & a beautiful atmosphere! I love this restaurant and the private party area is a combination of eclectic voodoo cocktail room and elegant Victorian dinning room. After all your in NOLA! This has everything that your guest need to get a taste of the city!
I could go on for days about how much I loved working with Pamela Reed. She is so talented. She takes the time to truly get to know her bride & groom. She knew exactly what we were hoping for and she captured every moment! She went above and beyond to offer us the highest level of service! She could charge and arm and a leg for what she does and she doesn't! She was one of the best photographers I have ever worked with and I would highly recommend her!
Groovy 7 has it all! Nick and Dalila did the music for our ceremony (guitar & vocals) . They allowed me to select the songs that were special to me and customized our ceremony. They are so talented! The music was perfect! Then the band kicked off the party! This is a group that can do it all...there is no need to have separate ceremony musicians and band. I highly recommend Groovy 7! We would use them for any party, not just weddings!
This hotel is a small, privately owned boutique hotel. They were such a pleasure to work with and they gave one on one attention that you don't get from bigger hotels. The hotel itself is modern and beautiful. We stayed in the top floor penthouse. The room was exquisite! They also have a really cool lobby bar that serves craft cocktails. I would highly recommend the International House! We stay there all the time, don't limit yourself to just your wedding night!
