Hi everyone! So my wedding was this past Saturday (barely got it in before the storm!) in Virginia Beach, VA. I have to say that it was absolutely the most incredible, perfect day of my whole life. I couldn't stop smiling all day, and haven't stopped since it ended! All of our vendors were just incredible, and I can't praise them all highly enough. Primo Events and their team were over the top incredible. I know for each category they have a few vendors to choose from, so I thought I’d let everyone know my experience with each of them.
Everyone partied until midnight, and we got so many compliments that it was the best wedding people had ever been to, which made me feel so good!
OK, here are my reviews of our vendors:
The Dolphin Room & Catering (venue):
I can't speak highly enough of this place as a gorgeous spot to have an elegant oceanfront wedding. I opted to splurge on the Chivalry Ballroom chairs which added sooo much to the ambiance. The food was just incredible. People told me the steak just melted in your mouth, and the fish was so good. Also, my coordinator, Ron, just blew my mind. He kept things running very smoothly from the rehearsal through the end of the reception, and was totally unfazed by any of my crazy requests. He also made himself available throughout the year whenever I wanted to meet, which I really appreciated. Grade:A
DJ Chuck (music):
I can't say enough great things about Chuck. I loved all my vendors, but Chuck really went above and beyond for us. He ran a perfect show for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and reception. He truly has a “Can Do” attitude and was early for every meeting, and was just all around great to work with. Grade: A+
Jenna did our flowers, and they were gorgeous. We had a very specific idea of what we wanted, since we were doing an Alice in Wonderland theme, and they really ran with it. Each centerpiece was unique. She filled some teacups that my mom and I stacked together with roses, mosses and succulents, and each one looked like a work of art. She was also willing to work with our budget, which was awesome! Grade: A
Shawn Femia Photography:
Shawn is an incredibly gifted photographer. From our engagement shoot at the Botanical Gardens in Norfolk, to the day of the wedding, she really rocked it for us. We haven't gotten the full set of photos back yet, but she has already posted a blog with about 65 photos that look incredible. She and her assistant, Elizabeth, stayed with us ALL day, and I never felt rushed, and hardly even noticed them during the reception. Grade: A+
Sorry for the long post everyone. I hope your wedding days turn out just as wonderful as mine did! I have some stuff to sell, so I'll get that posted on the Knot and Craigslist shortly.
