Candi made a wonderful veil for me. It was just what I wanted and she made it with a quick turnaround time and for a great price!
I went to her house for a consultation and she had me try on several different veils so I could figure out exactly what I wanted. It was really helpful that she had samples to try on, it made making my decision easier.
She is a lovely lady and I have nothing but absolutely great things to say about her work!

The videographer on our wedding day was Jeff. He did a great job of capturing all the important moments and details of our wedding while at the same time keeping out of the way. He was very friendly, but most of the time I didn't even notice he was there at all. I actually think that made for a better video, as it was truly candid some of the time.
We just got our dvd and the turnaround time was about 2 1/2 months. Faster than I had expected, which was a nice surprise! It was beautifully edited and so fun to watch. The dvd came in a soft leather case, a rather nice touch. I did notice that the insert, which lists our names and the wedding location, had our venue listed in the wrong city. I would have liked to have it listed in the correct city, but it's not a big deal.
We are really glad we invested in a great videographer. It gave us memories we will be able to go back and watch time and time again.
I can't believe I am the first to review Amelia Lyon Photography! We were lucky to have fantastic experiences with almost all of our vendors, but one of our absolute favorites to work with was Amelia and Justin! Our initial meeting with Amelia was great and we just clicked. We felt she really understood our style and could provide us with exactly what we were looking for in a wedding photographer.
We did an engagement session with her before our wedding and it turned out so gorgeous! The day of the shoot it was literally about 100 degrees, but Amelia did everything she could to make us feel fabulous despite the sweltering heat. When we got the pictures, you couldn't even tell that there were times where we were sweaty and felt like melting. Amelia made us look great! The photos were artistic and creative and captured the moment so well.
The same goes for our wedding day. Amelia and her husband Justin were there to shoot us and they got a ton of really wonderful shots. Photos were a big priority for us, so they got us in as many different locations and poses as possible with the time. Not only are the photos perfect and all we could have hoped for, but Amelia and Justin are just delightful people to be around.
I would highly recommend them to anyone and love them to bits!
JP is a wonderful man and a fabulous officiant. We couldn't have asked for more! He was very kind and patient leading up to the wedding in helping us come up with the ceremony we wanted. We weren't sure exactly what we wanted at first, so his help was definitely appreciated. On the day of the wedding, he helped calm my nerves about standing up in front of so many people and made me feel a lot more comfortable. He spoke beautifully and helped our ceremony to go smoothly.
His prices are a bit expensive compared to some other officiants we looked into, but not excessive and I really feel like he was worth every penny!
Our experience with Cheesy was mixed. Leading up to our wedding, everything was great. They were helpful and had good communication.
The day of our wedding however, they had issues with the photo booth and putting our custom banner on the prints. Because of this, the booth wasn't working for over 2 hours, much to the dismay of our guests. They never did get our custom banner working, so the prints our guests got and the ones in our photo guestbook had a somewhat unattractive default banner.
When we contacted them about this post wedding though, they were very concerned about making us happy which was very much appreciated. They said for some reason, even though the custom banner we sent was made with the template they provided and was ok'd before the wedding, something about it was causing a problem. To make up for this they offered to re-print all our photos from the night with our custom banner on them and also to add the banner to the photos on the disc they sent.
They also offered us a full refund, which was more than we expected and was very fair of them.
In the end I am a little torn, because I feel that they had exceptional customer service and made up for what happened the best way they could, but it doesn't take back the time the photo booth wasn't working on the day (a lot of people commented to us that they had wanted to take pictures and weren't able to because of this) and that the prints our guests took didn't have the custom banner we spent a lot of time on.
I would recommend them because I realize this kind of problem isn't usual for them and they were great in dealing with it after the fact, but be aware that things like this can happen and it can be rather disappointing.
Eric was absolutely fabulous! He did a great job at our wedding, we had multiple guests compliment us on our dj. Throughout the planning process he was very attentive and available to answer any questions we had.
He made it very clear he would play or not play exactly what we wanted which was wonderful. We wanted some music played that strayed from typical wedding music and he wove that together wonderfully with other music that would appeal to some of our older guests.
He also has very fair pricing and you get a lot for your money with him.
We have already recommended him to several friends and will continue to recommend him to others!
I had a great experience working with Nicole. I saw her several times, for my e-pic hair and makeup, my trial and my wedding day. The makeup she did for my e-pics was the best anyone has ever done my makeup, I was so pleased! She was very sweet and accommodating when I wanted to try a few different looks.
On the day of the wedding, she was on time and both Nicole and her assistant did a great job on my bridesmaids’ hair and makeup. They all looked gorgeous!
She did a great job on me as well, I was a bit unhappy with my hair BUT that is totally my fault, not Nicole's. She did exactly what we planned in my trial, I just wish looking back that I had chosen a different hairstyle.
I love her and recommend her to any bride needing hair and makeup on their big day!

I had the most wonderful experience at Saks. After going to numerous bridal salons in both Southern California and the Bay Area, I decided to buy my dress here. Not only did they have one of the best selections I came across, but the customer service was exceptional.
I worked with Karen who helped me choose wonderful dresses to try on and when the dress I decided I wanted wasn't even a brand they usually carry, Priscilla of Boston, she had a sample special delivered for me to try on. She also advised me of when to buy so I could take advantage of a great deal Saks was running for free alterations.
All my fittings were great, the seamstress was fantastic.
I would highly recommend Saks to anyone in the Southern California area looking for a dress.

We loved 24 Carrots! The food was absolutely delicious! So many guests came up to us and told us it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. The staff on the wedding day was great. They kept the food and drinks coming and were very friendly and accommodating. The food was my husband's favorite part of the whole wedding!
We worked with Heather Smith and I can't say enough good things about her! She helped us get the perfect linens, which wasn't exactly easy. Finding linens in the color we wanted was a little tough, but Heather still managed to find us multiple options. She was very attentive and I always felt like she genuinely cared about our wedding. Not all wedding vendors act this way, so I really appreciated it! If you're thinking of working with 24 Carrots, I would definitely request to work with Heather!
We've already recommended 24 Carrots to several friends who are getting married soon. I can't imagine them doing anything less than a stellar job!
Melody is nothing short of amazing! She made our wedding cake and several items for our dessert bar. It was all absolutely delish and completely beautiful!
We booked Melody before her storefront opened and had a tasting, and then had another once her shop opened. We got to try a lot of different items and every single one of them was scrumptious! We met with several different bakers, and Melody by far offered the best deal for the money. She made us a gorgeous and detailed cake for a very reasonable price, not to mention her decorating skills far exceeded the other bakers we met.
She is so creative and such a wonderful person! Every time I talked with Melody, it felt like talking to a friend.
I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. We will keep going back to Melody for any desserts we might need. She is the best!
