My husband and I are so happy that we decided to go with Kevin for our wedding photography. Photography was important to me, but I knew we wouldn’t have a large budget for it. I spent months looking for the right photographer. In our price range, Kevin was by far the most talented and offered the most in his package. We met with him and loved his bright colorful style and his calm, cool personality. In March we took our engagement pictures with him and his girlfriend Megan Julia Pangan, who is also an amazing photographer. My husband and I were very nervous in the beginning, and he was not looking forward to the session. In the end we loved that Kevin encouraged us to just be ourselves and took lots of fun portraits in many different locations. For our wedding, we worked with Kevin and his fellow photographer friend Nathan Nowack. Kevin and Nathan were on time, got right to work, and took many many amazing pictures which received countless compliments. They were able to capture emotions and moments I had not even noticed had occurred. Kevin is professional, amazing at what he does, beyond reasonably priced, flexible, and timely! We had a lot of fun having him as our photographer. Thank you Kevin (and Nathan and Megan) for all of our beautiful pictures :).

Mary’s Party Rentals was great. They were absolutely the best deal for our white wooden folding chairs, even though we had to pay extra for delivery, set up, and take down. We worked with Antonio, who was on time and set up all the chairs without a problem. They were very flexible with attending a walk through meeting at our venue. We would recommend this company to others.
Janet worked very hard in a short period of time to hem the scalloped lace edge of my dress. She also did a French bustle. She had to take out the lace and resew it by hand, which I understand is a lot of work, and she did it in about a month and half. At the last minute I also brought her my little sister's dress to hem which we accidentally ordered in tea length, making it longer than the other dresses. Janet was sweet and very talented, and fun to be around. The only problem is one of the points on my dress came out, I’m not sure if that was Janet’s fault or my maid of honor who bustled it. The hem also looked a little messy while bustled, it seemed like the lining was too long. Despite this I would recommend Janet to others.
I met with Karen back in March for my trial. I really liked the makeup, but was unsure about the hairstyle. She made me look made up but still like myself, like my husband would have wanted. On the day of the wedding, Karen and her assistant arrived on time and set up quickly. They finished 4 people ahead of schedule. Though my maid of honor’s hair uncurled very quickly (her hair was done by Karen’s assistant) we were all very pleased with their services. I decided to go with a completely different hair style from the trial so I was worried about the outcome, but it ended up coming out perfect! Thank you Karen, I have never felt more beautiful :).
Sarinya was amazing! She has all of the qualities you want in a wedding vendor. I met with her a few months before my wedding and she was sweet, creative, and very flexible. By email she always responded quickly. I didn’t have a large budget for flowers, but I did not want to skimp on bouquets since they are always in the pictures. Sarinya created our beautiful bouquets for us, as well as a large manzanita tree for our reception. All of them came out amazing and they were delivered on time with no problem. At first I was unsure of what I wanted in terms of style, but she gave me many ideas to choose from. She was very understanding and willing to stay within my budget. I received countless compliments on my bouquet and I would recommend her to anyone.

My fiance and I were not very pleased with the Arboretum. There are many hidden fees, restrictions, and rules that made planning our wedding and staying within our budget difficult. The cost for use of the location ended up being quite a bit higher ($700 more) than what is originally listed on their website. On top of this we had to get liability insurance for an extra $150. We decided not to have our reception here because of costs such as lighting generator, security, extra staffing, etc. Also, the response time of the wedding coordinator is very slow. Sometimes I would go several days or a week without a response to an important email or phone call. If we would have known beforehand we would have gone elsewhere. Their organization and timing was also a nightmare, and the coordinator would often forget that we scheduled a meeting, and even forgot we had scheduled our rehearsal. They had someone else scheduled at that time and we had to wait for them to finish up. The only positive is the location is beautiful and we could not have found a more visually perfect location for us.
I love Sarah! Sarah responds quickly to emails, is super sweet, her pricing is great, and she delivers all products quickly and perfectly! I have nothing bad to say about her at all. I love our map and we got a lot of compliments on it. She quickly made any changes I mentioned. I also ordered a stock monogram and she was sweet enough to give me two versions of it for no extra cost.

My bridesmaids purchased their dresses here. I found the best deal for the dress, and also the location was halfway between where all the girls lived, so it was more convenient. At times the staff here was a little rude or unprofessional or even sometimes didn't seem to know what they were doing, but not a big deal in the end. The dresses arrived on time and all without a problem. The only thing is that the alterations were a bit overpriced but that seems to be about the norm for bridal stores. If given a choice I probably would come again.
I purchased my beautiful La Sposa dress here in January 2011. The service was generally good, except for in one occasion when the consultant assigned to me was not very helpful, she left my bridesmaids to zip me in and out of the dresses which were often very heavy. Otherwise, my original consultant was great and was the main reason I ended up picking the dress I did. She was honest and never pushy. Also, Mary Me Bridal honored a 10% discount given to me for a La Sposa trunk show which of course is greatly appreciated. The dress arrived on time in June and without any problems. When I came to pick it up all the ladies were very sweet and helpful. I decided not to get alterations done there because of the price though. All in all a great experience and I love my dress!
