Vendor Reviews

Gown: Maggie Sottero Brittanya from Atlas Bridal. A+ Atlas was wonderful. Some trouble with the bustle, which had to be redone, but they did an amazing job and it held up all night!! Alterations were pricey, however.

Bridesmaids Gowns: NetBride A+ Bill Levkoff. We saved $100 off each gown by ordering from Norah at NetBride. They were wonderful to work with, answering emails promptly, and the gowns arrived weeks ahead of schedule.

Hair: Shiloh Griffiths A+ Shiloh came to the house and did everyone's hair. Loved it!

Makeup: Friend Amy Kahl A+ Amy also came to the house and we had a blast!

Invitations and enclosure cards, maps and programs: Quaint Wedding Stationery, Wauseon, OH. A++++++ (my mom's business and she is great!)

Bridesmaid's & Mother of the Bride Alterations: A Stitch-in-Time, Archbold A+ Audrey was great. Her alterations pricing is very reasonable and she is FAST!!

Tuxedos: A+ Mens were from Lauber Clothing Archbold. Little boys were purchased from Fairytailes A+ on Ebay for $40...a HUGE savings over rental prices!

Church: Shiloh Christian Union Church A+ Anita and Chuck Whitmire were very gracious and accommodating. The fee of $150 to use the church for the rehearsal on Friday and ceremony Saturday included the use of the altar Candleabras and pew aisle candle markers. Tulle pew bows were also available for our use.

Ceremony Music: Alexandria and Brianna Hogan on Harp and Flute were amazing! A+ If you want to set the mood for your wedding ceremony, hire these sisters from Defiance! Supurb sound!

Florist: Blossoms Designs, Swanton A+. Shelly created my 18 rose bouquet from an inspiration photo and it was gorgeous! Exactly what I had envisioned. Bridesmaids gerbera daisy bouquets were the perfect shades of hot pink and light pink and tied with chocolate ribbon.

Catering: Callender's of Archbold A+ Marlene set up a gorgeous AND delicious fruit appetizer station with dips for guests prior to the buffet dinner at 6 p.m. Food was wonderful, and we had TONS left over!

Reception: Delta American Legion A- I give them an A- because their liquor prices were ridiculously high for Fulton County. Even though the hall is very nice, I would recommend a rental where you can bring in your own liquor. For some reason, they think "competitive" pricing means they can charge (gouge) you whatever they want....and they did! Totally out of line!!!

DJ- Steve and Brian Waack, Aiken SC A+++++ If you can afford these guys, hire them! Incredible job! The dance floor was FULL all night!

He also did a great job of cutting our CD for the Evolution Wedding Dance!

Hall Decorating: Jayne and Bill Throne of Something Borrowed, Napoleon A+++ Jayne was right with me in understanding my vision of elegance and drama. The head tables and backdrops were stunning. She dressed the cake table to highlight the cake to perfection! She loves what she does, and it shows!

Chair Covers: Melissa Loar A- They looked great when we arrived at the reception, unfortunately, they didn't stay on very well and most were on the floor halfway through the evening, so it was money not very well spent. Melissa did a great job, however, and her service deserves an A+

Wedding Cake: The Bake Shop, Kristy Clouse, Fayette A+++ It was a masterpiece and soooooo me! Loved it, and it tasted great. So many compliments received on the design. I couldn't have been happier!

Photographer: S.Peterson, Bowling Green. He and his wife photographed and videographed from the rehearsal, through rehearsal dinner, morning of the wedding, the ceremony through the evening reception. We pick up our photos tomorrow, and I expect they will be wonderful so will give an A+ His prices are very reasonable.

Transportation: Larry Goon transported the wedding party in his motor home. He was great! Thanks so much!! A+
