Vendors in this Wedding
Main Event's staff was so helpful and very professional. The food was great! We were really able to personalize every aspect of our meal! We decided on a heavy cocktail hour with stations for our reception. The mac and cheese was a huge hit!
I used Paisley and Jade to rent a few items for my April wedding and was blown away by the results!! I really wanted a large mirror with hand written calligraphy instead of a escort card table. P&J had the perfect mirror for this! I soon realized that they are located in Richmond (my wedding was in Leesburg, VA). I then added a few more items to meet the delivery minimum and I am so glad that I did! We ended up renting a few chalkboards with handwritten messages like "Welcome to Amanda & Tommy's Wedding" and "Wine Tasting" listing the different wines that we had at the tasting area. We also rented the chalkboard bar which was a huge hit! We had them hand write "Eat, Drink, & Be Married #Black2Roth" and everyone loved it! Lastly we rented a love seat for our sweetheart table which ended up being a little low for the table we had but looked absolutely unique and beautiful. The whole experience with P&J was top notch and professional. I will certainly keep them in mind for my future events!
Alison Harper & Team were nothing short of fabulous!! I used their amazing team for all of my wedding day hair and make up needs and couldn't have been happier! Prior to my wedding my mom and I went in for a trial run of the hair and makeup. The loft space was beautiful and the staff was very accommodating and friendly. I was in love with my hair from my test run but decided later that I wanted to do a different hair style and they were able to get me in for one more test run to make sure that I would be getting the hair style of my dreams for my wedding day. My husband is not a fan of the majorly done up look and Alison Harper & Team did an amazing job of creating a look that was so natural yet was full coverage and lasted all night! Seriously I do not know how they made my hair look so natural yet it didn't move an inch the entire evening- even with taking the veil off and back on a few times. It was stunning and exactly what I had pictured- maybe even better! The team arrived ready to go and did the hair and make up for myself, my mom, my mother in law and my 4 bridesmaids. Everyone LOVED their hair and make up! They were able to capture everyone's personal style while keeping all of the looks cohesive. I will certainly use their services again should I need hair and make up.
Future Brides... your venue search is done! You will absolutely not regret choosing Stone Tower Winery as your wedding venue. I cannot say enough nice things about Stone Tower Winery- if I could give more than 5 stars I would. Everything that comes with having your wedding here is perfection. The views are jaw dropping, the staff is top notch, the decor is stunning and the wine is excellent (you seriously have to try the sparkling rose). Having my wedding at STW was a dream come true! Lauren helped us our with every detail to ensure the most perfect day and it was exactly that. I wish I could relive the day over and over again. Our wedding was April 9th and we had an unexpected late snow... the staff was so amazing at helping us switch our dream outdoor wedding into the venue's beautiful tank room. All of our guests still cannot stop talking about how beautiful and unique STW really is. The views are picturesque ...literally breathtaking- this venue is a must!
Go see Marsha! She is amazing! She worked with my husband to custom design my engagement ring and then she worked with the two of us to custom design our wedding bands. Reasonably priced and very professional. We are so happy with our rings and will be lifelong customers.
Do not be put off by their lack of responsiveness months before the event because they will not let you down!! I priced out many different transportation options for my wedding day and Road Yachts was by far the most affordable option. I was a little nervous with their lack of communication in the early stages but my wedding planner (Katie of Pure Whimsy Events) assured me that they were amazing and in fact were the only transportation company that she has not had an issue with in the past. I am so glad that I listened because they were perfect. The drivers were always prompt and professional! They only charge for the time you use them- not the idle hours- which is a HUGE savings ladies!!! The buses were all very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend.
Candice & the Candice Adelle Photography Team are AMAZING!! We used Candice for our engagement photos and our wedding photos and couldn't be happier! She has such a calming presence that really put Tom and I at ease. She has such an eye for capturing the most magical photographs- giving new life to the typical wedding shots. She captured real emotion and joy which was so important to me as some of my family was not able to make it to the wedding. One of my aunts told me that the pictures were so wonderful that it made her feel as though she was there. We even had a friend contact us for her information seconds after posting the wedding pictures saying that they were the best wedding photographs that they had ever seen! It is true- the wedding was beyond beautiful and Candice was really able to capture all of its beauty and even some of the horizontal snow!! Tom and I can't stop looking at our pictures from our wedding and cannot wait to see the rest of them!!
I used J. Morris Flowers for my wedding and WOW were my flowers STUNNING!!!! Worth every single penny! I had my heart set on peonies for my wedding. I met with a few other florists and was told by everyone but J. Morris that peonies for an April 9th wedding was just not possible that I was crazy. When I met with J. Morris it was music to my ears!! They assured me that if I wanted peonies that I would have them. They had my wedding dripping in peonies ... the most beautiful blush and pink peonies you have ever seen. Not just the little buds but full lush peonies of my dreams! I absolutely LOVED my bouquet and every single detail that they provided. I worked with several members of the J. Morris family while planning the wedding but Katie was my point of contact. She was very patient with me and worked with me to create exactly what I was looking for and so that my expectations would become reality and they absolutely did! They even were able to add 2 large arrangements when I had to move my outdoor ceremony to an indoor location because of SNOW! 10 out of 10 for the J.Morris team and I will be using them again for any event that I do in the future.
Matt from Shew-sical Entertainment Services was our DJ at our wedding and he was fantastic! He kept the party going the whole night! He was recommended to us by a friend and we are very happy that we used the recommendation. Matt was very professional and really made us feel special at our wedding. We also used Shew-sical Entertainment Services to play music at our cocktail hour, to mic our officiant and were even on stand by should our harpist not work out to play music during our ceremony. Luckily the harpist worked out but it was so nice to know that Matt was flexible and had our back just in case. Matt also runs the company WoW Event Lighting. We used their services to uplight our reception. We went with amber lighting and it was stunning! It was also very nice to have one less vendor to work with!! Highly recommend the combo!
We booked WoW in conjunction with ShewSical for our DJ (they're owned by the same people) and received a discount. Our DJ was in charge of the lighting as well, and did a fantastic job setting it up. If you're wondering whether or not to do uplighting for your reception, just do it. It adds a warmth and party atmosphere to the night that you just can't get without the lights!
Brides... stop your search because you have found the most amazing wedding planner on the market! I cannot say enough nice things about Katie and Pure Whimsy Events! Katie made every single detail of my wedding day perfect! I had an opinion about every single detail and Katie brought it all to life. For you brides that think that you can do it yourself, don't! Hire Katie! The ease of knowing that everything was being taken care of by someone who truly understood my vision made for such a relaxed day. Katie was there for me during every second of the wedding planning. She was super professional and extremely responsive. She is wedding planning GOLD! It is so easy to get carried away with ideas and Katie helped keep me focused and planned the wedding of my dreams. Literally the best spent money of the entire wedding! Thank you so much for everything, Katie!!
Melissa was a fantastic addition to our April wedding! She plays the harp beautifully!! She was very flexible when we had to move our outdoor wedding indoors due to a late snow. She was able to play every song that I asked her to and really made our wedding so special. Thank you Melissa!!
Literally the MOST delicious and beautiful cake ever created!! Lora created my dream cake for my wedding. I showed her a picture of what I had in mind and what she created was even more beautiful!! I still have people coming up to me telling me that it was the best cake that they have ever tasted. The cake is super moist and the icing is perfectly sweet. My favorite cake is red velvet and I was nervous at first that she did not provide that flavor option. She does provide a velvet vanilla which was AMAZING!!! Has the taste of red velvet without the coloration which is good for your health and even better for your teeth for all of the photos! You will not regret selecting Gateau for your wedding cake! We can't wait until our anniversary to have more!!
