Whoops...I didn't mean to give her a star.
It's been over a year and she still owes me pictures.
Her pricing was great, she seemed to be the real deal...but she has not come through.
It's devastating to be without all of your wedding pictures.
I do not recommend Heather.
Stephanie Janisse saved my sanity. She worked as a Day of Coordinator but with her pre-meeting planning, I knew that she had my vision and would make sure my day was just as I had dreamt.
She was prompt at responding, professional in her interaction w/other vendors, and sweet in caring for me...and my husband! Just as her company name reflects, she has style and grace!
Her prices are fair but her service is terrific!!! She provided an assistant to make sure that the venue was being arranged while she was w/us at the church. It was great to have two hands helping.

Kate was great at listening to my vision, good at documenting our plans, and responsible about communicating with me.
She was very understanding when I was stressed, and then shared in the excitement of my day. The flowers were gorgeous.

Beautiful, old Tuscan styled villa built in the 20s. All services are coordinated through Sandy at Santa Anita Gardens.
I've learned that many vendors know the Villa as Alverno. Alverno HS and the Villa sit on the same property.

I enjoyed my experience trying on dresses at Mary Linn's. It is a nice but traditional salon. If you live in San Gabriel Valley, I recommend starting there. THey've got a large selection of nice dresses.
I worked with an associate named Meg. Super nice. I was about two sizes bigger than their sample size, but Meg squeezed me in and helped me sort threw tons of dresses.

Great company. I saved several hundreds of dollars buying my Essence of AUstralia dress through Netbride. They had great service and delivered the dress a month early.

I worked with Karen. Initially, she pulled dresses that I just didn't like (so I thought). She was terrific though. She had sized up my body type, and listented to what I wanted, and found dresses that were very flattering.
I also appreciated that they left tags in so you knew what you were trying on.

I didn't find the veil I wanted but the associate quickly helped me design the right veil. It was budget friendly ($35 for a fingertip lenth w/o crystals or beading, $70 total once the beading was done.)
Easy to work with...but remember...bring cash!! I had to run to an ATM.
I also bought a lovely barrette for $10!!
I am so pleased working with Casey and Teresa at Mango Safari.
If you are interseted in an African safari or a beach getaway in Seychelles, Mango is great. They are a young, female owned company that specializes in Africa. They are not your typical stuff British safari company. They are tuned into ecological and cultural concerns. They work with their clients to make sure the trip is picture perfect.
I've had a friend use them as well, and she raved too!
