OK ladies and gents. Here is the information from my wedding and a few suggestions that I may have to those of you who may need my advice. After a year of planning I think I may can help.
Venue: Lone Star Community Center in Montgomery, TX. It’s a new building with very reasonable price.
Caterer: I used IncEdible Delights. They were great! I got the menu that I wanted at a decent price and it was good quality and quanity for my guests. http://www.incredibledelights.net
Florist: I did my own flowers. If anyone needs any help I wouldn’t mind helping.
DJ: I used the Look of Entertainment. They were very professional and worked with me on a playlist to suit my needs. http://www.thelookofentertainment.com
Photography: I used The Look of Perfection. Austin was the photographer and did a really good job on our photos. http://www.thelookofperfection.com
Wedding Cordinator: Kathy Lookofsky of InrEdible Delights.
IncEdible Delights, The Look of Entertainment, and The Look of Perfection are all owned by the same person, Kathy Lookofsky. She gave me a great deal since I booked all of my services with her. She also was my wedding cordinator and did a fantastic job. My wedding was in Montgomery, but if you are looking more in the Houston area she has just opened a venue of her own that is beautiful, I wish she had had it when I was lookingj for my venue. Its the old Atascocita Country Club, now known as The Club at Atascocita.
