Hello All, My daughter got married in April and mentioned to me that would browse thru the Boston.com wedding forums, so I decided to look thru them and noticed that another mother posted a review of her daughters wedding vendors. I would like to do the same. My daughter was the last one of my husband and I's 4 children to get married, and we had a lovely wedding.
Church: Sacred Heart in Watertown: A+
My husband and I were married in this church 30 years ago, and like our wedding, they did a wonderful job with our daughters.
Reception: DoubleTree Suites in Cambridge: A+
The reception was in the Charles River Ballroom with windows overlooking the river. The food was delicious and the room looked lovely. Our wedding coordinator was very helpful in assuring that my daughter and her husband was taken care of the whole night, and that our guests has comfortable rooms to stay in.
Flowers: KaBloom: Brighton: A-
I am only giving them a minus because they were about 20 minutes late delivering the girls' bouquets. But the arrangments were lovely and lasted all day and night, and their prices were perfect.
Wedding Gown: Camilla's in Arlington: A-
I am giving Camilla's and A- because they weren't as attentive as I thought they would be with my daughter, but they were very helpful and the alterations were wonderful and everything came in on time.
DJ: DJ Mark Wish: A+
Mark did a fantastic job getting everyone out on the dance floor and keeping things clean and classy, we loved him.
Cake: Icing on the Cake: A+
The cake was great, very delicious and beautiful, my daughter was very happy with it, and she is a professional baker!
Hair and Makeup: Kenneth Wilde Salon, Newton, MA: A+
My daughter is a client of this salon, and Gia did a wonderful job on her hair and makeup, it lasted all night long through hours of dancing.
Limo: Northeastern Limos, LLC: A+
They were on time and very nice. We had two stretch limos and both were clean, had a/c, and drove very well.
Photographer: Steven Charles Photography: A+++++
I can't nearly give enough +'s. Steven Charles is based out of Vernon, CT, but we hired him because he is simply amazing. He was my older sons photographer for his wedding in CT, and got him to do our daughters here in MA, we were very lucky.
Honeymoon: RIU Palace All-Inclusive, Dominican Republic: A+
Although I was not there, my daughter said her husband and herself said they had a fantastic time and the facilities and the beach were perfect.
I think that about covers it. I hope this information can help any future brides out there. I am sharing my favorite picture of my husband and my daughters dance together.
