Word from the Bride and Groom: Our wedding was absolutely fantastic and that is thanks to all of our wonderful vendors! Everyone at Aberdeen Manor was great to work with, and they made the entire wedding planning process easy and fun. They took care of everything on the wedding day so we could just enjoy it. Our flowers were done by Jessica at Thode’s Floral. She took the time to listen to what we wanted and suggested flowers based on our vision. And we couldn’t be happier with the pictures taken by Nichole Frank Photography! She was a blast during the planning stages and on the day of the wedding. Our day would not have gone as smoothly as it did if it weren’t for our vendors. Thanks to all of you!
