Amazing Amazing Amazing!!!!! They recently catered our backyard wedding reception and the guests all RAVED about the food.... so delicious and well prepared. The display was beautiful!!! Gina is the best, she helped me coordinate and decide on all our wedding furniture rentals and our menu. They have been in this business a long time and they know what they are doing. The day of, Gina acted as our coordinator and helped make sure everything went smoothly, even during the ceremony! We couldn't have done it without her. She made sure the bride a groom were happy and brought them whatever they needed. Just FABULOUS!!!! Highly recommend to ANYONE!!!! Very nice and professional staff!
We saw this limo driving down the freeway and I thought it was so cool because the theme of our wedding was a "old school/vintage". I wrote down the website and checked it out once I got home. I thought this was such a cool car and would be perfect for our getaway after our wedding reception. I called the owner Marcus and he was so nice and accommodating. He had a scheduled wedding the same day as our 2.5 hours away, but since we only needed late night transportation he said he would be able to pull it off and he even gave us a discount off the total price. Our guests were so impressed with the car and they thought it was such a cool getaway. Marcus sets up a red carpet and he is so professional. We ended up leaving later than anticipated and he was very flexible with us. At our drop-off Marcus gave us a bottle of champagne and was able to run a credit card on the spot for the cost. VERY CONVENIENT! I highly recommend this car for anyone that wants something different and "classic" for their get-away.

It had been a long day of disappointing dress shopping. My mom and I went to a few bridal shops including David's Bridal which was the WORST customer service I have ever received anywhere. On our way home I was so discouraged and my mom remembered this small bridal boutique in downtown Pleasanton which is located across the street from where my husband and I got engaged. I really didn't want to do any more shopping, but I let my mom talk me into just stopping by to look. We didn't have an appointment and there was a couple other brides there, but the staff was so sweet and even let me try on a few dresses. I was shocked!!! It was so cute and the dress shop was just the perfect atmosphere of what a boutique should be! They had so many amazing dresses that I was overwhelmed and all had such reasonable prices compared to others I have tried. My spirits were lifted!!! We made an appointment and I returned probably 4 times to try on different dresses, each time finding one that I like more. They were super flexible and accommodating. They even allow you to take pictures which no other bridal shop will allow and this is what ultimately helped me make my decision. All the dresses truly look different on camera! When I finally found the dress of my dreams it was part of a trunk show so it had $100 off the tag price. I went home and researched prices and theirs was the cheapest ANYWHERE the dress was $1300+ anywhere else and it was listed for $1100 at J'aime. It was slightly over my price limit, but Jamie worked with me and gave me a deal as long as I bought my bridesmaids dresses there which wasn't difficult since there were a lot to choose from. I also ordered my shoes there which were surprisingly comfortable and dyed to match my "antique" ivory dress. The only set back we had was with the flower girl dress. It came in and was much too small. So we reordered. The next one was longer, but still too tight so they reordered again only someone forgot to send the order. 3 weeks before the wedding and I didn't know what to do. The owner Jamie offered to take the dress and alter it herself (it just needed to be let out a little) at no extra cost. Come the day of everything was perfect and all worked out!!! Thanks J'aime =)
My wedding was going to be outdoors with a reception held on my parent's property. I knew we were going to need a tent, but I hated the standard rectangular tents with metal posts that most wedding rental companies provided. I didn't know what to do and I started looking online. I came across Zephyr Tents website and I was sold! Their sailcloth tents were beautiful with wooden posts and a circus-like look. I knew I had to use their tents! We worked with them to determine the size and cost of our tent along with any extras we would need. We ended up renting our tent, dance floor and lighting from them. The owner came out to do a site visit to measure the location and determine what they would need for set up. Then his wife made a mock floor plan to my personal specifications of how all our tables (rented from our caterer) would fit under the tent with the dance floor. They ended up coming out to set up the tent two days prior to the wedding which was great to ease my nerves. At the last minute we decided we wanted to add sidewalls in the event it got too cold in the evening. They came out last minute the day before to put them on!!!! WHAT SERVICE!!! They were very professional and easy to work with. Respond quickly to any inquires and emails. The only problem was that the dance floor began to come apart a bit before we even started the reception. It might have been due to it being placed on grass, but we got worried someone's heel would get stuck, which luckily no one got hurt. I like to tell everyone that we literally "tore up the dance floor" that night!
Christine was very sweet and great to work with. I told her my view for my wedding and she was able to easily recommend flowers that would create that look and would be in bloom during our wedding date. They are considered "Luxury Flowers for Less" and the prices were great, but there were compromises. I wasn't able to see samples of everything, just my bouquet and half of what the centerpieces would look like. She claimed that their studio wasn't done yet, I don't even know where they actually work out of. The day of I was hoping to have my flowers by the early afternoon to have for our pre-wedding photos, but come that time they hadn't arrived. When I called they said that they weren't going to arrive until closer to 3:30 an Hour and a Half before the ceremony start! In all the chaos when they arrived there were some mix-ups, my sister ended up carrying the toss bouquet and the boutonnieres (missing the satin ribbon we requested) were sent down to the ceremony site barely in time so I don't know if everyone ended up with the correct ones, also our rose presentation to our mothers got spoiled when someone simply handed the roses to our mothers before the start and my husband and I were unable to present them ourselves. If you know exactly what you want and the names of flowers it is helpful. All our flowers looked absolutely amazing especially considering the great cost, but I got confused and asked for flowers that weren't correct because I was misinformed (mix-up with Casablanca lilies and calle lilies). Make sure to look them up yourself before in the event you don't get to see samples. All in all we got many compliments on our centerpieces and we were even given extra flowers the caterers were able to use to decorate their buffet. I was also pleasantly surprised when Christine called me to tell me peonies (which I desperately wanted) were still in bloom for our date. I was disappointed to find they usually aren't still in bloom at the end of June, but I was able to have them in just my bouquet to make it extra special. My bouquet was absolutely stunning and the staff puts a lot of effort into setting up the site!
My husband and I are not very religious so we wanted a somewhat neutral ceremony unlike the many church ceremonies we have attended in the past. The moment I talked to Reverend Tim on the phone I knew this was a great match! His deep and powerful voice and causal tone was perfect. He insisted we meet to ensure this was a match. During our meeting we discussed the flow of the ceremony and what we wanted to include. We were able to personalize it to make it meaningful to us rather than using a "standard ceremony" that so many officiants use. What was very special was Reverend Tim had us each write a story about something during our relationship. We were to keep these a secret from one another and we each submitted a week or two before the wedding with a couple of paragraphs. Funny enough we both ended up writing about the first time we met and our first date. It was so sweet and added such depth to the ceremony. Our guests were so involved in listening to the stories and thought it was so cool. Our guests wanted to know where we found him because they all thought that he must be a close friend of the family the way he was able to describe our relationship and who we are. Reverend Tim added humor and really made light of the whole ceremony and I can honestly say it was so much fun and did not drag on at all. The vows he use are very nice and I loved that we are declared "lovers and friends for life" rather than "husband and wife til death do we part" at the end. The words and phrases he used were exactly how my husband and I feel about each other. He suited our personalities and brought out who we are in the ceremony. Reverend Tim was on time and helpful in organizing things prior to the ceremony with all the attendants. It was really such a wonderful day!!!
