    Vendor Reviews 9/18/10

    We had the most amazing time at our wedding and most of our vendors were incredible (especially our band, venue, florist, and photographer).  When I was planning I always found this information extremely helpful, so here are my reviews: Venue – Southers Marsh Golf Club, Plymouth:  A+++http://weddings.southersmarsh.comI can’t say enough about how wonderful the people at Southers Marsh are to work with.  The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the views of the golf course and cranberry bogs are spectacular.  We had 100 guests, an outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour in the clubhouse, and reception in their beautiful tent.  They took care of absolutely every detail.  Everyone raved about the fabulous food, and my two wedding coordinators (Laura and Chrissy), and the abundance of wait staff made sure everything went off without a hitch. Flowers – Tangent Floral, Plymouth:  A+++http://www.tangentdesign.ccWithout much direction from me other than my color scheme, Laura created the most beautiful arrangements I could have imagined.  I received countless compliments on how gorgeous the bouquets and centerpieces were.  She’s incredibly talented, reasonably priced and really cares about making your day just as you want it.   Band – Groove Authority:  A+++http://www.grooveauthority.comOur single best splurge it was definitely hiring this band.  They had EVERYONE dancing all night… kids, grandparents and everyone in between.  We hired their keyboard and sax players for the cocktail hour and had the full 7 piece band for the reception.  They are incredibly talented and play the widest range of music I’ve ever heard from a wedding band (… even rap).   Every song they played sounded the same or better than the original.  I can’t even count how many people have told me that our band was by far the best they’ve heard, and that the next morning their feet hurt and they had no voice from dancing and singing along so much.  I also have the pictures to prove that. Photographer – Matt Flynn Photography:  A+++http://mattflynnphotography.comMatt, and his assistant Liz, were absolutely fantastic to work.  I just got home from the honeymoon and my online proofs were already waiting for me less than two weeks later.  I was so overwhelmed by how amazing our photographs are.  They were so non-obtrusive that I have no idea how they possibly got all the shots they did.  They struck the perfect balance of formal, artistic and candid shots and managed to fully capture all the moments that made the day special.  I can’t say enough about how wonderful it is to be able to relive the day over and over again through their photographs.   Officiant/Non-Denominational Minister – Dr. Don Gage: A+http://www.donsweddings.comDon was super flexible and gave us a ton of options to choose from to design the perfect ceremony.  He was professional, organized and accommodating.  Many of our guests commented on how touching the ceremony was and what a great job he did. Cake – Montilio’s:  Ahttp://www.montilios.comThe cake was beautiful, tasty and exactly as requested.   Limo - Real Sense Limo: Ahttp://www.realsenselimousine.comThe limo driver was on time, followed instructions precisely and the limo itself was well kept and clean.   Invitations – Emerald Invitations, Quincy: B+http://www.emeraldinvitations.cceasy.comOur Save the Dates and invitations came out absolutely gorgeous and I was thrilled with the job they did.  However, I did run into some issues with selecting options that ended up being unavailable several times.  So my only complaint would be that they need to communicate better with their vendors since it was frustrating having to repeatedly make new selections.   Bridesmaid Dresses – Manhattan Bridal, Dedham: Bhttp://www.manhattanbridals.comThe service, selection and prices at Manhattan are great.  My only criticism is that they didn’t do a great job with a few of the girls’ alterations. Ceremony Musicians (Violin/Cello Duo) – A Touch of Strings:  Chttp://www.atouchofstrings.com I always envisioned a string duo playing as I walked down the aisle and they did a beautiful job on the wedding day.  Although they are very talented musicians, I ran into a few very frustrating issues with them during the planning process.  I signed a contract with one of the girls in March who didn’t inform me that she was going to be in Europe for the month of September until I happened to contact her again in July to discuss the ceremony music selections.  She did find a replacement, but there were issues again when 5 days before the wedding the replacement musicians didn’t know it was an outdoor ceremony and insisted that I provide shade for their instruments in case it was sunny.  This had me scrambling at the last minute to find an umbrella to set up for them (which of course they did not end up needing since it’s never extremely sunny at 5pm in mid-September).   
    Overall we were extremely happy with our vendors and our wedding day could not have gone better.  I can't thank them enough for all the hard work they put into making our day so fantastic!
