Call Kendra direct at 419-836-7758 for more information.
CATERER - Our choice for caterer of the year is probably not one that you would quickly think of. Everyone loves the food at Boston Market but who thinks about them for catering? Honestly, we did. We heard so many good things about them that one of our staff members used them for his wedding as well as his daughter's wedding and the food was awesome. They supply catering for any occasion. It's memorable. It's delicious and it's a wonderful alternative to "same old same old" catering. It's good, home style food, just like you get in the restaurant and the pricing beats what most other caterers charge. You can get to them 24/7 by going on line to www.BostonMarket.com or nationally by calling 866-977-9090 but we recommend you call the local store manager at the Alexis and Lewis store. Her name is Heidi and she can be reached at 419-478-2241.
GIFT SHOP - We have selected Wedding Gift Shop of the year as Fleur de Lis Toledo, located in the Holiday Inn French Quarter at 10630 Fremont Pike, Perrysburg, OH. The owner of the shop, Lora Pheils does a great job at custom wedding gifts, especially when you are looking for the unique of a kind touch for a special wedding. We received customized wedding gift wine glasses from the shop that were made to look like the bride and groom; something different and special. Lora has her own online shop at www.etsy.com/shop/FleurdeLisToledo but you should really visit the shop, just inside the lobby of the hotel. You can call Lora direct to see what she can do for you at 419-874-3111.
PHOTO BOOTH - Photo Booth of the year for us is one of the original style "real" photo booths. Many of the photographers advertising as photo booths are those who set up something on the wall, then take your picture against the backdrop, or build something out of PVC pipe and black cloth. American Traditional Photo Booth is the real deal. the photo booth looks like you excpect a real photo booth to look like, with just a touch of modern design and class thrown in. Anngie Schardt is the owner, operator and can be reached at email@example.com or by phone a 419-466-5166. Her prices are very reasonable too.
