- Wedding: September 2018
Venue – Knapp Storms Dining Complex at Iowa State Univeristy…all I can say is FABULOUS!!! Everything went smoothly and I can’t really think of anything that was missing or went wrong. The food was excellent, staff was super friendly and very hard workers. The catering manager was present all night to get us anything we wanted or needed (which wasn’t much, because it was so perfect) The price is right too – it is a $500.00 deposit to book the venue, which is credited to your bill if you spend $1000.00 in food. A no brainer! Basically it is free! We also had our cake made there, and let me tell you…we had about 50 people come up to us and say how great the cake was! Great venue!!!
Photographers – Greg Holland Photography Fairfield, IA Again, we lucked out, wonderful people to work with, a husband and wife team. Our pics turned out just the way we wanted, and were delivered to us in a timely manner. They were one time, curtious, and did just what we wanted and talked about. The images are very bright and colorful, and not your ‘average’ posed shots! Awesome! the website is http://www.greghollandphotography.com
DJ – Puttin on the Hitz based out of Des Moines IA
Great job, Ryan was our DJ. He was friendly, didn’t interact with the crowd too much -which is just what we wanted. He played a good mix of songs, except he played all of our special requests that we listed on a ‘playlist’ right after our first dance, when we were walking around thanking guest – so we didnt’ get to dance to our favorite songs. I guess I should have been more specific on when to play them. Also, the last dance was time of my life from the dirty dancing soundtrack which we told him we wanted in advance. Well – it wasn’t the original version – so our last dance of the night is to an odd sounding version of time of my life! I was a little annoyed – so just make sure you’re specific on what exactly you want if you use them!
Flowers – I did my own centerpieces with bulk flowers, but ordered two large arrangements from Blumsters in Huxley IA. Julie, the owner, did a fabulous job -they were just what we wanted! Bright, fun and modern! She was a breeze to work with!
If anyone has any question….please PM me! I’ll be happy to answer! 🙂
