- Wedding: August 2015
This thread is craaaaazy old, but I have a few vendors I would love to shout out…
Fab Weddings/Glenhaven Events – Farmington, MN – this was where we had our reception and I cannot sing enough praises for them. George owns Fab Weddings and he does a MAGNIFICENT job. He owns 4 venues, two that are both reception and ceremony ready, and you can basically choose what you want to spend money on and what you don’t. For every couple he provides a day-of coordinator who makes sure things run smoothly. They also provide the catering and you can order flowers, DJ, etc. through them as well. We were the first wedding at Glenhaven…we saw it when it was still under construction and he transformed an old furniture store into a beautiful wedding venue. He followed through on his promise and the venue was approved by the city at 4 pm the day before despite an insane amount of construction setbacks. Nothing like cutting it close (although he had 2 backup plans just in case). He called me on my way to the rehearsal to tell me the good news haha. I had a WONDERFUL experience. Can’t recommend them enough!
EP Photography – Maplewood, MN – Ellie was recommended by one of my college friends and I was amazed with her work. She was very professional, prompt, and thorough. She is easy to talk to and get to know and she is great at making people feel comfortable. We were able to get a 12-hour session at the wedding PLUS an engagement session PLUS two photographers PLUS rights to all 1061 photos she sent us after the wedding…all for $2000. I was so impressed. Highly, highly recommended.
Flora Etc. – Lakeville, MN – HOLY CRAP SHE IS AMAZING. I gave her my Pinterest inspirations for what I was looking for in a bouquet and she did a marvelous job. She did 3 bridesmaid bouquets, my bouquet, and numerous corsages and boutinierres. All for $400! That’s right, $400!!!! Amazing. She knows her flowers and she knows what goes well together and what is in season so you aren’t overcharged for importing a ton of flowers from out of state/overseas. Plus she delivered the flowers to my parents’ house (where we were getting ready) for no extra charge! I was so impressed.
