For this fall’s showcase we were joined by not one but two outstandingly talented DJ’s. Honestly, you cannot go wrong with either of these fantastic vendors.
ABC Music, Video, & Photography
ABC is a three-fold company. They aren’t just amazing, entertaining disc jockeys; they also do stunning photography (as well as a photo booth) and unique wedding videos. This family run company will make your wedding easy as a one stop shop for documentation and enjoyment on your wedding day!
Something unique that ABC also offers is an engagement video. These videos are not to replace engagement photos, but to capture this special moment in another way. This engagement video is of our very own Manor House Bride & Groom Brittany & Derek.

Guests of weddings at The Manor House are always enjoying their time and dancing the night away when Elite DJ is here! Check out this little video on what they are about.
This showcase displayed the stunning work of two florists: Fleur de Liz & Bella Floral. Both florists have the ability to transform any blank space into a wedding fairy tale, with brilliant centerpieces, beautiful archway decor, and elegant bouquets you will be wishing you could keep forever!
Fleur de Liz
Here at The Manor House, we are seeing less and less of the traditional wedding cake and more unique choices for a wedding dessert. Two of the most common alternatives we have seen have been bundt cake from The Bundt Shoppe and cupcakes from Gigi’s. Trust us when we say that both of these vendors make absolutely delicious alternatives to traditional cake. The Bundt Shoppe’s bundt cakes are so scrumptious and extremely original, and Gigi’s one of a kind cupcake flavors make it impossible to have just one!

DDG brought their gorgeous 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud with them to the bridal showcase this year, making all of our bride & grooms swoon with desire to have a rolls royce pull up to escort them on their wedding day.
Local Salon- Salon Forum
This fall, local Salon Forum joined us for our bridal showcase. Just minutes from The Manor House, Salon Forum serves as a perfect location for Manor House brides and their bridesmaids to primp and get pretty with beautiful hair do’s and makeup application!
Caricature Artist- Five Fun Minutes
Over the summer, Chad provided a caricature service for beloved Rosie & Kellen’s wedding. It was the first time The Manor House had seen a caricature artist at a wedding… and we loved it! It was so unique and all of the guests loved it! We were thrilled that Chad joined us for the fall bridal showcase so that he could show more couples what a fun and unique idea this is for a wedding.

Espresso Cart – The Espresso Affair
The Espresso Affair joined us for several weddings this past summer, and it’s understandable why. For all of those late night weddings, especially on Fridays, it is a brilliant idea to provide an espresso cart for your guests to get some energy and enjoy the evening to the fullest extent. The dance floor is always full when Espresso Affair is there!
A photo booth has become a huge wedding trend and for a good reason. It is a great idea to incorporate more fun for your guests into you wedding day. Not to mention, it can serve as a wedding favor or be in lieu of a traditional guest book. The reasons why a photo booth is a wonderful idea are endless, that is why were were fortunate to be joined by two fantastic photo booth vendors who have excellent booths to be able to capture even more memories from your wedding day.
