The Significant Others were magnificent from start to finish! We loved them when we heard them at another wedding, and they did not disappoint! We had a great number of guests rave about the breadth of the band's playlist and the variety of their music. Some said, "This is the best wedding band that I have ever seen!" The band was purely entertaining and they timed their breaks harmoniously with the flow of the event, so as not to lose momentum in the vibes of the night. We vividly recall looking back from the dance floor at the tables under the tent and noticing that not a single guest was sitting, disengaged, or looking as though they were not having a good time. This was what we wanted!!! People were on the dance floor and having FUN! We can hardly express how great the band was! We love The Significant Others.

Sue has an overwhelming supply of options, and she is incredibly talented at helping her clients hone their preferences. Sue is unbelievably skilled at designing custom crests, wreaths, etc. to tailor the wedding suite and day-of papers. We received countless compliments on the beauty of our cohesive, classic but outstanding, and lovely papers. Sue was timely with estimates, designs, and responses to questions. She was respectful of our budget and she was patient and kind with us when we flip-flopped in the decision making process.

The Shindig team co-created a wedding that was beyond our wildest imaginations and expectations and delivered the most fantastical, ethereal, exquisite, and divine thing that we have ever experienced. We absolutely could not have designed and executed such a stunningly beautiful wedding without the help of Shindig Weddings and Events. Meghan Streit struck the perfect and rare balance of personal interest and authentic enthusiasm for Adam and me AND effective communication, the ability to meet deadlines, and genuine collaboration. Meghan offered incredibly creative and gorgeous ideas, which she and her Shindig team executed flawlessly. She was also budget-conscious and sensitive to our tastes, dreams, and needs. We could not possibly thank or praise her enough!

Katie of The Detail Darling is the sweetest creator of the perfect wedding welcome bag. We received countless rave reviews of our welcome bags and the items we co-curated to go in them. Katie is highly responsive to e-mails, questions, and out of the ordinary items that define the couple. Katie meticulously incorporates wedding theme, artfully assembles, and delivers the bags, and she is an absolute delight to get to know in the process of design.

The Catering Outfit provided out-of-this world, delicious food, beautifully displayed, and flawlessly served. They were amicable, professional, personable, and timely throughout the entire wedding planning process, and most importantly, on our wedding day. From brainstorming to tasting and execution/delivery on our special day, The Catering Outfit was creative, flexible, and intentional. Our guests continue to gush about the food - The Catering Outfit was a dream-come-true!

Carolyn is charming, kind, non-judgmental, and she highly regards and respects each individual's natural look and personal wishes for make-up. Carolyn is extremely responsive to client needs, concerns, and questions from trail to wedding day. She makes recommendations for skincare and beauty regimen to encourage that you feel and look glowing for your special day. At least five of our guests created individualized beauty consultation appointments with Carolyn following our wedding, and each gushed about how wonderfully talented she was and is!

Jen is simply the best! She is incredibly kind and gracious, and tremendously creative and professional in all that she does. Her sweet demeanor, patience, and calm truly set the tone for a most magnificent day. She encourages organic interactions between partners so as to capture the essence of the couple, rather than cheesy, rigid poses. We remain so grateful for her presence, vision, and talent. She captured each moment flawlessly, and we routinely relive our divine day through the timeless photographs that she took.
