When planning the wedding I looked on here and got the impression that there were a few things wrong like every chapel, but it looked like great fun so we decided to us it anyway. WRONG! To begin with I should have noticed after we put the deposit down I never got any return emails. When I called to finalize everything they could not find my name for a while so they could make notes. Then whoever was on the phone just hung up... no bye nothing? But I guess its different there, I'm from the midwest and you say please and thank you for everything.
So it is the day of my wedding, the limo driver (who I was told by the chapel would pick an hour before our wedding) calls a half hour before while I am standing there with my wedding party and informs me that he will not be there tell a half hour after pick up time. I handled it nicely and told him we would just go on the bus with everyone else because I wasn't going to send everyone on their way to my wedding and just stand there and wave goodbye. He became very rude at that point and hung up the phone on me. Then we got to the chapel and of course they tried to smooth it over and told me they would not get any money off due to it being included in the package. Ok whatever lets get this show on the road!
They then walk us around the corner to the outdoor gazebo, ITS IN THE PARKING LOT! Wow, little heads up would have been nice, we had 18 guests from all over the united states come for a wedding in the parking lot!
Ok, roll with the punches! So now the put me and my groom in this small room, by the way the minister was great, made us feel really welcomed, BUT NOT THE PHOTOGRAPHER!
So the ceremony went with out a hitch, except my little flower girl but we knew she probably wasn't going to make it down the isle anyway. After the wedding they started taking photos and my mother in law snapped a quick one while the photographer went around the corner to get something. I thought the photographer and my mother in law where going to come to blows! The photo Nazi started yelling at her out of no where! This is my wedding woman, don't talk to her like that!!!! NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE! I guess it makes for a good story in years to come!
PS- then they made us take photos with the limo out front that never even picked us up!
