Bridal Reflections Massapequa – A-
They were wonderful throughout the whole process, it was a little cramped when we went to try on bridal gowns, I recommend going during the week if you can get the day off. They did not bring anything out that was not in my budget, and they helped me to find the perfect dress. We also used them for Mother of the Groom Dress and Bridesmaids dresses. They were very easy and helpful!
Zizi did the alterations, I highly recommend her! She was amazing and very helpful! LOVE LOVE LOVE her!

After Hours Entertainment – A+
I cannot say anything bad about them. They were willing to negotiate price to work with our budget and very helpful leading up to our wedding. Phil or Brett were awesome. They were always quick to respond to emails and very attentive throughout the whole process. They provided live music for my ceremony (they were wonderful), and during the hospitality hour. We used Brett for our MC. I loved working with him. The dance floor was always packed (sign of an awesome party).

After hours also provided Zap Shots during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and party. They were great. They provided me with 2 DVD’s and a flash drive with all of the photos after the wedding. It was awesome to have something to look at the next day! It goes by so quickly!

Pedestals Florist – A +
Virgil was very easy to work with, they were able to work with us with price to help create the dream that we wanted. Loved everything they did.

Fade To Black New York – waiting on final products

Photo Booth - Attendant was great, everyone had a blast, I was given a memory book with all of the images at the end of the party, but they forgot to provide me with the DVD that they said they would with those images. Hopefully will get those soon along with other final products.

Francesco’s Bakery – A
They created a beautifully delicious cake. Everyone raved about it. We worked with Giancarlo. He was flexible with scheduling appointments and willing to work with our budget. Just an FYI, Red Velvet and Carrot Cake are considered upgrades along with fondant or cake jewelry. We upgraded to the carrot and red velvet cakes.

Pastor April – A +++
Loved her! I knew she would be awesome when I met her at a wedding expo. She really got to know us before she wrote our ceremony. She was really able to touch upon both of our religions in a tasteful way without insulting any of our very religious families. (My sister is getting married next year and wants to use her too)

Long Island Weddings and Event Planners – B+
I purchased my invitations and seating cards through them. Everything was beautiful, I loved working with the girls there, they were very helpful, but it was very expensive. Price is what brings the grade down.

Fox Hollow – B-
From day one, Bruce the banquet manager was difficult to work with. If I did not fall in love and beg my husband to let me get married in the Somerley, we would not have gotten married there. Bruce did not negotiate and whenever I called or emailed they were unavailable. I had to track down someone else to get the 50% off at the restaurant for our “tasting”. That’s right, they do not do formal tastings!!! This made DH very angry.

Day of our Maitre’D was amazing. David was absolutely amazing! I loved him. We went to meet with him the week of the wedding, he was very helpful and accommodating. Day of, he helped to make sure everything ran smoothly. If it were not for him and my Bridal Attendant I would score them much lower.

Everyone is still raving about the food and how beautiful Fox Hollow is!

Thanks! Yea, in all honesty at the tasting the only ones we liked were the upgrade cakes. I don't know if they do that purposely or not. But Ended up working out well! Brought leftovers to work on Monday and everyone loved it!
