Above is the Shutterfly album I am working on. Let me know if this does not work-thanks!!!

First off I want to thank everyone on this Board as it was a great help during our wedding planning!!! I still enjoy the Board even after our wedding.

Here are our Vendor Reviews:

Bill Barchik = A+ Bill was nice, funny and understanding about the stress of being able to book your Escape Wedding, especially when you end up in a "lottery".

Kathleen Reynolds-Wedding Planner = A+++ I cannot say enough about Kathleen. She is a great person and a wonderful wedding planner! There was nothing that she did not help with when asked and returned emails and phone calls promptly. Our Wedding Day went off without any problems what so ever, thanks to Kathleen. She assigned us an excellent photographer, kept the lines of communication open between us and Rosie (Floral & Gifts) and the Le Cellier Resturant where we had lunch immediately following our Cake Cutting in Canada. Whoever has Kathleen will be in great hands. It was a pleasure working with her and getting to know her.

Rosie-Floral & gifts = A++ Again, I cannot say enought good things about Rosie and her Staff. My flowers were amazing!!! And the rose petals lining our aisle were so beautiful-we received so many compliments from our family and guest about what a great job Disney did!!! Also Rosie insured that all our family and guests recieved their Disney Gifts. Which the Disney Robes were a huge hit!!!!

Stephanie-Disney Photographer = A+++ Wow!!! We had Stephanie for all three days-the Ceremony, EPCOT Bridal Shoot and the Typhoon Lagoon "Trash the Dress"-which by the way does not ruin your dress, so don't fret about this if you want to do a water park photo shoot. I hate having pictures taken of me and she made me feel beautiful and comfortable. She took so many shots that we now have many great memories. I tried to upload pictures to my Shutterfly link above, but most of the DPS pics are too large to upload. Just take my word that if you get Stephanie you will be more than happy!!!

Professional Elegance, Tiffany-Hair & Make up = A+++ Tiffany is the best!!! She was there all three days at 0600 to make me look stunning and I cannot say enough good things about her. Her make up is airbrush with I believe a silicon base and it lasted all day without touch ups!!!! Even the day of the water park shoot, the hair and make up held up great!!! Tiffany will travel to your location pretty much anywhere-she was heading to Vegas in a couple of weeks after our wedding to do a wedding out there. Her prices are amazing! I never expected such quality work and all I can say is BOOK HER!!!

Le Cellier was great!!! The food was wonderful, especially the Creme Brulee and the Staff was amazing. We were able to go straight from the Ceremony/Cake Cutting down to the restaurant, which was very nice. I only worried about getting food on my dress as I had to wear it two more times-so I had a large napkin tucked down my top!

Were you married at Canada also? It is the greatest spot, especially if you like the mountain type environment.

Thank you both for your kind words!!:)

I forgot to review Carolyn Allen's which really I can't say anything than what everyone else has said before-they are great!!!!!! We rented my husband's tux from them also and it was perfect. Best thing was for both the tux fitting and the dress steaming they were there early!!! Gotta love that!

Animal Kingdom Lodge & Staff = A++ We splurged and stayed on the Club Level and it was worth every penny! The Staff at the Club were always super nice and the food was really good. Our primary Mousekeeper went out of her way to make our stay perfect, even getting in early to see us off to our Honeymoon Cabin at the Wilderness Campground. AKL Staff had a Welcome Gift waiting for us which included two sets of personalized buttons-Happily Ever After & Just Married, his & hers perfumes and luggage tags. I love AKL because of the animals, and this last visit was the best.

Wilderness Cabins = A+ A perfect getaway. My best friend had the entire cabin decorated with Halloween decor and goodies, including a Zombie Zinfandel! She even book a haunted carriage ride for us thru Sleepy Hallow.

Wolfgang Puck's = A+ We had our "rehearsal" dinner there the night before the wedding and the food & service were great. We had 15 adults & 2 children with appetizers, soup/salad, main course and desert w/non alcoholic beverages for under $1200.00 total with tip and Service Charge. I would recommend them any day.

Disney Photo Pass = A+++ Best buy! If you order CD before you go on your trip you can get $50.00 off and we got some really great shoots! Plus you can give your Pass number to your family & friends and get their shots on your CD too. And make sure to get the special park Photo Pass numbers during the Mickey's Not so Scary Halloween Party if you go and have your pictures taken by the Ghost Hearse-very cool!

Anyway, hope this helps some of you~~~

I;m glad to finally see pictures of another Canada Escape wedding! Your pictures are amazing! I'm glad you liked Kathleen...I wonder if she is the official "Canada" coordinator? I really like your TTD pics!

Did you have to take your dress off to eat in Le Cellier after? You guests must have loved eating there!

AKL is my favourite resort! I'm glad you had a great time there!

I have to say that the Trash the Dress at Typhoon Lagoon was just too much fun!!! I wish I could post more of the photos-once we get the re-sized, perhaps. Anyway, we had so much fun. The Lazy River was a blast and we got some cool shots under the shower. I must warn everyone, that when they turn on the Wave at the main pool, be prepared becuase it is very strong! We couldn't do any of the slides due to safety reasons, but that was okay. Oh and your dress will get a little heavy, so be prepared to "pull up" if you're going strapless!!!;)

Cheers!:santa:
