Questionnaire with an Omaha Bride | Nowak Wedding Video + Photos

10.18.19

Amanda spent her last day as a Johnson on June 21, 2019 when she married her best friend, Brennen. Amanda and Brennen were married at St. Patrick’s Church in Omaha, NE. The happy couple celebrated an absolutely perfect wedding day with all of their friends and family by their side. The celebration continued that night at Indian Creek, a country club on a golf course in West Omaha.

Amanda wanted to share her Omaha wedding vendors experience with us in hopes it would help other brides along the way! Here are her thoughts and choices for the vendors she used.

Omaha Wedding Vendors Involved

Catering

We used Abraham Catering based out of Omaha, NE. The food was simply amazing! We enjoyed a really fun tasting with Chad and Kara, who own the catering company. I was surprised with all of the meal choices and variety, and how truly easy they were to work with.

Cake

We used HyVee and said they were easy to work with and the cake tasted great. They did send the wrong cake on the day of her event, however it looked very similar and no one knew the difference! HyVee made it right with Amanda and Brennen by offering them a full refund for their wedding cake.

Flowers

We used HyVee again and said that they were really easy to work with, and gave them exactly what they were looking for! They even recreated my Pinterest photos.

Hair, Makeup, & Beauty

Sadie with Creative Hair Design did an incredible job of making her feel beautiful with bridal hair that lasted all day! Makeup was done by Abby Hubbard Makeup. Amanda had a personal relationship with the makeup artist, Abby, as well as the hair stylist, Sadie. It was really convenient that both of the stylists traveled to my getting ready location.

Lighting

Complete Weddings + Events supplied my lighting. It truly transformed our venue space and was a great addition to the design.

DJ

We had DJ Tay Westberry of Complete Weddings + Events. I had no complaints at all and that Tay did an amazing job! He is one of the best DJs we have ever seen. Tay did a great job of keeping everyone on the dance floor and personally helped me customize our first dance.

Photo Booth

Complete Weddings + Events did our photo booth for our wedding. All of our guests used it, and we still look at the personalized scrapbook book all the time. We were allowed to customize the photo strip, which I really like and overall, I feel like it added a fun aspect to our reception!

Invites

We bought our wedding invites through Shutterfly online. I found that it was super easy to use, and I saved a lot of money by customizing them instead of paying someone to create them. On top of that, the shipping was fairly quick and they turned out better than I had anticipated.

Decor

For the decor, we did a lot of DIY/Hobby Lobby decorations. Pinterest-inspired centerpieces were a big part of our set up, and we mainly used a log that my dad cut up and made into candle holders. I also picked up some greenery and other ideas at Hobby Lobby during the half-off summer sale about a year in advance.

Photography

We used Trevor + Neiman of Complete Weddings + Events. They were extremely personable, and went above and beyond for anything and everything I needed or wanted. They captured our big day and left me with photos I will treasure for the rest of our lives together.

Videography

I used Complete Weddings + Events as well for my videographer. Tim worked closely with my photographers to get everything I wanted. I also purchased the love story and the same day edit with Complete and Tim, and seeing it all come together on my big day brought me to tears. It was so much better than I had expected.

Dress

I got my dress from Ready or Knot here in Omaha. I was so obsessed with my dress from the moment I put it on. It was so breathtaking and I couldn’t be happier with how comfortable their team at Ready or Knot made me feel.

Tuxedo

Brennen went to Tip Top Tux for his tuxedo hybrid. It was a cool blend between a nice suit and a tuxedo. Their team did a great job working with him and making him feel comfortable since he had never done anything like that before.

Venue

We had our wedding reception at The Club at Indian Creek in Elkhorn, NE, on the outskirts of Omaha. We absolutely loved the space and the team was great to work with!

Hopefully these options the couple chose will help you with your Omaha wedding vendors process for anyone stuck on where to go next! Amanda and Brennen had an amazing experience with these vendors, and we wanted to share them with you. Congrats again to Mr. + Mrs. Amanda + Brennen Nowak!
