2015 Vendor of Distinction Award Recipients
March 11, 2015

Congratulations to everyone selected as a 2015 Central Minnesota Wedding Association Vendor of Distinction.  These members were awarded this distinction based on their client reviews and perspective of the exceptional wedding services they provided. 

Read the following reviews to see why our prestigious members take it upon themselves to go above and beyond and provide brides with a perfect wedding day. 


"Consistent top reviews on their Facebook page. Of their last 10 reviews, 6 were 5 stars out of a possible 4 stars..... Their average ratings of all reviews were 4.4 stars out of a possible 5 stars. Outstanding!"



"Rengel Printing did our invitations and programs and we could not be happier with the outcome! We have gotten so many compliments on them! LeRae was so nice to work with, speedy and knowledgeable. I would recommend Rengel Printing to any bride and groom! A+!"



"Thank you! We cannot be more pleased with how everything went! You and everyone at Regency were incredibly accommodating and so easy to work with. We couldn't be happier with you all. Again, thank you very much. We had a wonderful day!"


"Noah and his wife drove 3 hours to come to our wedding. I could have not asked for more of a perfect night. For my wife and me the DJ was one of the most important parts of our special day. And trust me when I say this I do not make too many recommendations, but if you are looking for someone to exceed your expectations Beautiful Day DJ is a must!!!"


"I don’t know how Dan & I will ever begin to thank you. You have been a dream to work with. Everything has been so stress free and easy. We feel truly lucky to have you as our wedding coordinator. We are looking forward to coming back every year to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you to you and the Carlos Creek staff for making this journey so much fun."



"Our experience was wonderful. The staff was welcoming each time we visited the store, my fiancé was able to contact staff even when the store was closed, and overall we feel lucky to live near enough to continue to shop with D. J. Bitzan."


"Nichole was an absolute stress reliever! On top of all the wedding 'to-do list' she took care of the honeymoon and made the planning an enjoyable experience! She made this part of finding a place easy and stress-free. I gave her our options and she made sure it fit the criteria we wanted on a honeymoon exactly! I owe our honeymoon, which was a memorable experience, to Nichole. This travel agent is hands-down a great travel agent as well as a great person!"


"Flamingo Event Services was AMAZING!!!! We were truly impressed with the professionalism, caring and style that they brought to the wedding. They were able to work within a budget that we considered reasonable and also added more character to the venue than we had originally anticipated (It was AWESOME!) They listened extremely well to what our goals were, coordinated fitting music for our personalities, dressed to match the theme of the day and were there when they said they would be there. They did such an amazing job that even people around the town, who did not attend, have stopped us to ask about the event and relay what they had heard through the grape-vine. Word around town is F.E.S. really brings the show!!!"


"We selected Food Ecstasy to cater our daughter's post wedding reception and were very satisfied with their service from the very beginning. We met with Betty several times as we planned our event and she was always gracious, spending as much time with us as we needed, and because of her many years of experience was able to offer suggestions when we weren't certain of how to do a post wedding reception. The meal itself was delicious, served professionally and presented well. Many of our guests commented on the excellent food. The cost was very reasonable as well. Throughout the whole process, Betty was enthusiastic and truly excited about our event. I would highly recommend Food Ecstasy as a caterer for any event."



"The Best DJ around! Larry did such an amazing job at our wedding! He not only accommodated what I and my husband wanted for music but he accommodated the whole crowd!! He got everyone on the dance floor that night & we all had a blast! I would highly recommend them for any special occasion!! He is very professional, on time and so accommodating to your schedule! Don’t waste your money on a band- Impression Mobile Music is the way to go!!!"


"Thank you so much for the awesome photography! We absolutely, 100% could not have asked for a better, more qualified person to capture our most precious of moments! You were so great to work with & made us all feel so comfortable. Your photos were amazing! Thank you so much for the card & gift of money. We really appreciate your generosity."


"Monica and all of the amazing staff at Mantra, thank you so much for making us feel beautiful for our wedding! Each of my bridesmaids has individual styles and you really listened to what they wanted. Your girls are all very talented. A special thank you to Katie for doing such a great job coordinating everything! You were great to work with and went above and beyond to make a fun experience for us! It was great to bond with my girls at your beautiful salon. I loved everything about it!"


"Wonderful cakes and more. She did my sons very unusual wedding cake, my grandson’s baptism cake and my husband 65th birthday cake. Also two Christmas baskets. I won't go anywhere else!"


"Sharon is absolutely wonderful to work with and has amazing talent on the piano. She played at our church ceremony and at our cocktail hour of our reception as well. She was unbelievable to work with. Sharon communicated and reached out to our venues, which was one last step we had to do. Sharon is very dependable and such a pleasure to work with!"


"#1 best venue in St Cloud, that’s for sure. The venue fee was affordable and the food was 5 star. My husband and I were really impressed on how smooth everything went. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day went smoothly. The guests had so much fun and were really impressed. Big thanks to you guys!!"


"Our experience with The Crown Room was fabulous! The planning was smooth, coordinating the week-of was stress-free and the day-of staff was out of this world. Gina, Shannon and their team were awesome! From the arrival and bringing the butler-passed apps to the guests to the head table food presentation, I couldn't have asked for more top-notch service. All of our guests raved about the food, and our families were beyond impressed with the service and coordination. Thanks for everything that you did to make our day go as smoothly as it did."


"Wedding & Tuxedo Connection helped us so much in getting everything together for our destination wedding. They were patient with me while I kept changing my mind on dresses and even bought more than one. They were amazing with getting everything together for the tuxedos. We had many out of state groomsman and had to get everything to California for our Disney wedding. Jen made all this possible and I can't thank them enough. I would recommend them to anyone; they definitely go above and beyond."


"The staff was wonderful!! Very helpful and even took care of my cake and cupcakes from Cash Wise. They kept them chilled, delivered them and set them up for our guests. Everything went off without a problem. The wait staff did great as well. We had many compliments on the staff of Custom Catering. Bar staff was very professional and did a great job serving our guests. The food was delicious!! Really impressive in all aspects!"
