In addition to the helpfulness of friends and family, we had several vendors who really helped to make our wedding special. The Lowell Inn in Stillwater provided beautiful accommodations, excellent service and top-notch food. The University Club in Saint Paul was a beautiful setting with great food. Gregg Babb of Seedling Eventful Flowers did a wonderful job with the flowers – and is one of the most polite and accommodating entrepreneurs I’ve ever met. I’d like to thank them all in this public space.

A very special thanks goes to Bill Hermann of Blue Chip Productions, who we hired as our DJ. While he was more expensive than the other options we looked it, it was the best-spent money of the wedding. He went out of his way to help with every aspect of the party, even opening the door during the ceremony. He is incredibly talented at keeping people happy and entertained, even when there are several generations in the group. Even the bartender, who sees weddings all the time, commented on what a great DJ we had.

Bill was kind enough to take photos throughout the reception and he sent us copies on a CD. This in itself was worth much of his fee. We didn’t have a photographer during the reception and none of the guests took the quality and the variety of photos he did. Through these pictures, we were able to relive the entire reception, even parts we’d forgotten. And we were reminded at what a fantastic job he really did. If anyone reading this happens to be planning a party in the Twin Cities area, we’d highly recommend him.
