Veronica was a pleasure to work with. She had the best prices for linens and chivari chairs. She was also quick to respond to emails. We scheduled our floral mock up at Fusion. Veronica helped us finalize our choices to match our centerpieces. The linens and chairs were in excellent condition and truly completed the look of our wedding!
From the moment my husband and I saw Orange Turtle's website, we knew we found the perfect photographer for our wedding. For some reason the photos, colors, and music on the website just give out so much love and warmth. We booked them right after meeting Cindy and Daniel at our initial meeting.
We were very nervous for our engagement session. We were afraid we won't be able to look natural in front of the camera, but Cindy put us at ease within seconds. She was professional, calm, and really knew what she was doing! Our e-sesh photos were AMAZING. Cindy really knows how to capture each couple's personality and style on camera, no matter how different they are, yet she is still able to keep her signature style. That's impressive!
On our wedding day, Cindy and Daniel drove all the way from San Diego to Orange County to arrive before 7am for our getting ready photos. I was so nervous at first and Cindy was there to calm my nerves. It was almost like having a good friend by my side :)
Our wedding photos were everything we had hoped for and more. Orange Turtle captured every single moment so well and they don't miss a single detail shot. My husband and I love looking at our photos over and over again and reliving one of the happiest days of our lives. Orange Turtle is so great at colors and composition and using the sun to their advantage! Every photo is so dreamy like it's straight from a fairytale!
There is no doubt that Cindy and Daniel are great photographers, but Cindy is also VERY responsive. Often times I would receive an email back from her within minutes! Cindy works fast as well. A teaser is up on the blog within days after a shoot. A full blog post is up within a week. A DVD with all the edited photos is sent within a few weeks.
We are so pleased with our photos. Booking Orange Turtle was definitely the best decision we made. We have been recommending them to anyone who would listen :) We love you OT!

We dealt with Scott, Victor and Tony personally. They were all very friendly, helpful, and professional. Tony was our DJ. We met with Tony a few weeks before the wedding to get the timeline settled. Tony also gave us some recommendations for major song choices, which we really appreciated! Tony was able to get a normally not very outgoing crowd onto the dance floor for some dancing! Too bad it was a day time outdoor wedding and it was just too hot for a lot of people to dance the whole time. Tony also taught us a group dance - the Thriller Dance! It was one of the highlights of the day!

Vivian was always very friendly, helpful, and quick to respond to emails. Angelina was the main stylist who worked with me for hair and makeup. She knows exactly what hair/makeup would look best on you both in person and on camera. I booked her for trials, engagement photo session, and even to attend others' weddings. 4 other stylists came with Angelina at 4am to work on me, my bridesmaids, my flower girl, and the mothers. I had to subtract one star because the other stylists were not as good and as professional as Angelina. Angelina had to redo my mother in law's hair and makeup. Overall, my bridal party and I looked great and our hair and makeup stayed put all day!
We found Don Johnson on Project Wedding. We had scheduled to meet with two officiants. We met with Don Johnson first, booked him on the spot, and cancelled our other appointment with another officiant. Don was so personable, genuine, and funny that we knew right away he was the right one to marry us.
We were so lucky to have found him for our special day on 10.10.10. The ceremony was everything that we had dreamed of and more! The way Don speaks really captures everyone's attention. He made the ceremony so touching yet so light hearted at the same time. He had everyone laughing and crying. There was not one dry eye in the house!
So many people have come up to us and asked where we found Don and if we have known him for a long time. They were all shocked to find out that we found him online! We have only met Don twice: first at our initial meeting and second when we met to touch base and reconnect two months before the wedding. During the ceremony, he spoke to us and told stories about us like he has known us for years. In reality, he got all his "material" from our two meetings and also from visiting our wedding website. Not only does he have a gift, but he truly cares to get to know his couples :)
A lot of people have mentioned that their favorite part of our wedding was the ceremony and it is all because of Don Johnson. He made our special day so memorable, not just for the two of us, but for everyone who attended.
Don is really one of a kind. We cannot thank him enough! We love you Don!
We LOVE Cheesy Photobooth!
We booked Cheesy over a year in advanced for our 10.10.10 wedding. Because we were the first to book with them for that specific date, Cheesy gave us a free upgrade and provided us with a projector screen and projector for our wedding slideshow. How awesome is that?! We also asked for props, and Kevin, who was so professional, friendly and helpful, came with a big tub of funny hats, huge sunglasses, feathered boas, fairy wands, etc. to the wedding. The photobooth would probably be fun on its own, but the guests had so much fun with the props! It was so funny seeing our relatives in their 50's and 60's wearing pink feathered boas and viking helmets for the photobooth!
The photobooth prints out 2 copies of the photos: one for guests to take home and one for guests to make a scrapbook page for the couple. Cheesy provides so many scrapbook materials that guests were able to make beautiful and elaborate scrapbook pages!
Cheesy has a lot of options for the banner at the bottom of the photobooth pictures. They can either help you make your own original banner or you can choose from one of their many pre-made samples. We came across a lot of photobooth pictures during our planning and research. Cheesy definitely has the best banner designs out there!
Cheesy also has a very quick response time. They always replied to emails within hours. We even got our scrapbook and CD of all the photobooth images in just a little bit over a week!
