Busy Season

We are in full effect right now with busy season. 22 events the past 3 weeks, 9 this week! We've been working with great people at great facilities and I can't stress how important it is to choose a venue that has a professional staff and gives you the personal attention you deserve (see Ray's Boathouse & the Lakeside Events Center). If the facility you book allows outside caterers, choosing a catering company that provides everything you need and not just the basics will go a long way to helping ensure you have a successful event (see Occasions Catering & Jonz Catering). Entertainment should be the next thing you consider for your event - and I encourage all to make your event unique! Just hiring a DJ is fine by us, but entertaining your guests with a magician like Nash Fung or a service like Flipped Out Productions will make your event unique and memorable. And last but not least, utilize your vendors that you hire initially as resources to help you find anything else you need for your event. There are a lot of great wedding planners, photographers, florists, officiants and event rental businesses to make your dream a reality. Signing off for now...we'll be back soon!
