Inne of the Abingtons- A+
I can't rave enough about this place! They were amazing every single step of the way. We were able to make payments whenever we wanted to, and if I ever had questions, they were always answered quickly. Amy, the DOC, is fantastic. She knew exactly what she was doing, and was calm no matter what was going on.
As for the ceremony and reception, everything was perfect. The pavilion was a great place to be married, and there was an easy transition to the cocktail hour. The food here was absolutely the best- everyone was raving about it to us after dinner. We had the flat iron steak, stuffed chicken and penne with marinara sauce. We didn't hear one single complaint. The wait staff were all very polite, and there were two women who checked with either DH or I before anything happened- the main course, cake cutting, dances, etc. They were very helpful, and it was just a great experience all around. John, the owner, provided us with a little goodie bag at the end of the night- it had water, cookies, some fruit, and a couple other little things to munch on back at the hotel. Our top layer of the cake was boxed up for us and ready to go as well.

Photographer- Altar Imaging
Gary and Pat Day run Altar Imaging out of their home, north of Scranton. We met them after initially going with another, non-responsive photographer in Middletown, NY. Gary is the photographer and his wife runs a lot of the other business details. They are very friendly and very well informed about album, and up to date with their cameras and editing programs. They are very flexible and had no problems changing a few things around for us so that we had a package that fit our needs.
We did an engagement session, and had a lot of fun with Gary and Pat. We went to several different locations around the area in Montrose, on a beautiful March day. The quality is fantastic- I can't wait for the wedding pictures. The coffee table album we received already is perfect, and I'm so excited for the mounted album!
Gary and Pat were also great the whole day of the wedding. They were very thorough and made sure we got all the pictures we wanted, and then some! We also did some family pictures, and he was very flexible about doing whatever we wanted.
Frankie Carll Productions- A+
Frankie runs a company that includes many facets of weddings, including: DJs, bands, and photography. We chose Frankie's company for our DJ service. He was very straightforward and what really stuck with us was that he wanted to put on a classy wedding reception for us, not klassy. His company is based out of Scranton. www.frankiecarll.com
The DJ for our wedding was Nick, and he did a great job! He checked in with John and I before he did anything (eg- cake cutting, the longest married couple dance, in lieu of the bouquet toss, etc) and was very friendly. He even got out on the dance floor and taught those of us not in the know how to do the Chacha dance!

Aria Bridesmaids- A+
The girls' dresses all came in a month earlier than expected, in the beginning of April. They look fantastic! Two of my BMs said theirs are a little tight, but also attributed this partly to newlywed weight gain. The color is fantastic, and I know they're all going to look awesome.
