OUR WEDDING

August, 2011 in Las Vegas

"We got married with 1 major hiccup... Based on outstanding reviews, I booked Todd Wilson back in April and I had full faith that he would be incredible, then come wedding day, I wasn't able to get a hold of him until 11am where I found out he was in California... I had to find a replacement ASAP for my 1pm nuptials! He was the only one I really got excited about working with and had such high hopes for what he could have done. Now, 2 months later I'm still dealing with this nightmare!

Other than that, my husband & I had wonderful vendors. We had the most perfect day with family & friends"

"This vendor was HIGHLY recommended on all the wedding sites for their professionalism & great prices, so I booked them with high hopes. The day before my wedding, I attempted to verify call time & location & didn't get a response. It wasn't until 2 hrs before the ceremony I was FINALLY able to get a hold of Todd Wilson. Apparently there was a "scheduling error" & he was out of state. At first he was very unapologetic & didn't even offer a replacement (but eventually had one call me 30 mins too late because during that time, I was forced to find another photographer w/ such short notice & ended up paying 2x as much as intended for 8hrs instead of 10hrs & no professional set up photos) I got my deposit back a month later ( after a number of emails & phone calls) & I'm now in the process of filing a case against them for the overage I incurred (I've tried working the situation out with him, but now he is no longer returning my emails & likely wishing I would just GO AWAY)"

"Dale had to be THE most best vendor to deal with! He was very prompt with emails and the only one that took the initiative and contacted ME before the wedding to make sure everything was a go... which for a frazzled bride, put me at ease! At first I wasn't going to hire a videographer, but his prices fit within the budget. He was on time, knew where the action was and I love that he got interviews from guests. He was a pleasure to work with and I can not wait to see his DVD!"

"The moment I saw it on their website, I HAD to have my wedding here (even if I was getting married at 1pm in the middle of August! - 107 degrees that day). It is just too beautiful and the pictures of the ceremony turned out amazing. My mom was concerned about the noise of the falls, but with the P/A system, hearing wasn't a problem and we never even heard the cars passing down the strip. I was a little peeved with how much it was going to cost, since the location was really just a walkway to the hotel, but I'm glad we did it here."

"I had more people showing up than expected (it went from no more than 50 guests to a total of 83) and luckily I was able to upgrade from the DiCarlo&Calabria to Calabria&Abruzzi with under a month to the wedding. Everyone loved the food (even the picky eaters) & I loved the price! I was surprised that the food portions for our sweetheart table was the same amount for a table of 10 - it felt like a waste cause we were so busy mingling and taking everything in that my DH & I hardly ate anything. My only complaint (I hate that I'm complaining...) is that when I dropped off my cake toppers, seating charts, table numbers and vases the day before, I was told they'd set it all up. I told them my FSIL was going to come by to decorate and put together the centerpieces for the 10 tables, but when she got there, someone handed off the placecards for her to handle. Also, my cake topper was of me, my DH and our 3 pets, but 1 of my dogs went missing & the table numbers were pictures /stories of the years we were together from our beginning to the proposal, and 1 went missing as well."
