The Grand is an event center with several different rooms to choose from. They have good menu selections, and no rental fee as long as you have the min # of people for the room. The planning process was painless, I worked with Lisa McIntyre who was such a great help. She never grew tired of my emails or calls, was always pleasant and prompt with her responses. She eliminated the need for a coordinator. Their day of execution cannot be beat, everything went off without a hitch, many of my guests were impressed with the wonderful service.

I would give Kerim a 9 out of 10. In our correspondence before the wedding he was great, very accomodating. I was unsure of what I wanted and he was able to guide me in creating a look. My only 2 complaints were from the day of the wedding. A few of the boutonnieres were the wrong flower- still nice, just incorrect. All the bouquets and centerpieces were gorgeous. Also, the woman who came to deliver and set up was a bit rude and impatient, not the best person to represent the company. Overall, I was very happy and I received numerous comments on how beautiful my flowers were.
Dirk is great, he was referred by my photographer (Marlin Munoz) and many LA brides. He was easy to get along with, prompt, and blended in so well I hardly remember him being there! He's also affordable which makes him an even sweeter deal! If you need more convincing, just contact him and he will send you a full length DVD so you can see for yourself!
I was married on jan 14th '07 and besides choosing my husband, Marlin was the 2nd best decision I made! His pictures are absolutely amazing, his price can't be beat, and his personality makes everything even better. He and his wife Marlene are truly heaven sent! We took our engagment photos back in Nov @ the santa monica pier and they were amazing! You can tell he loves photography, but he also cares about his clients. I had a terrible DOC and Marlin kept asking me if there was anything I needed, anything he could do. He went above and beyond the call of duty. My husband and I still keep in touch with Marlin and Marlene, they are such a wonderful couple. Anyone who doesn't consider hiring him is crazy!
