We found Gary after a search for a non-cheesy and yet still fun and affordable DJ in San Diego. We were thrilled that he seemed to be very much like us; we didn't want a lot of "DJ talking time" (like bouquet toss, garter, etc.) We did have a first dance, and we did have him announce us, but didn't do the other things that so many people say that you "have to have" -- we just wanted a lot of great music, and he delivered! Great reception (in laws' backyard), one guest wanted to use him for her reception a few months later but he was already booked, so book early.
We loved Rosanne - we met with her before the wedding and she was very receptive to our ideas. She was also a wealth of information as to what tastes great, what looks great, etc. We loved her so much that we've used her for additional special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.).
Recommended by my future MIL because she'd done such a good job at her other son's wedding, I cannot recommend Missy enough! Her business, run out of her home in Clairemont, looks modest but her arrangements are drop-dead gorgeous, lush, extravagant -- and all superbly priced. We put my bouquet in water at the end of the wedding day and it still looked fantastic *10 days* later. She does such a beautiful job, and I would recommend her (and have) to all my friends.

A Slice of Life Photography (then known as HRH Photography) was absolutely fantastic! Heidi met with us beforehand, we got to know her and immediately felt comfortable and at ease... She photographed us (we used the 2 photographer package) and captured the essence of our entire day. Talented is not a good enough word to describe Heidi - she's a miracle! Her genuinely happy, bubbly personality made everyone like her instantly but when we got the proofs, we kept getting comments from friends and family "they are the best wedding photographs we've ever seen!" Our wedding album is so unique, a piece of artwork in itself, that many people have gotten her contact info for their special occasions. We cannot recommend her enough -- we were on a budget but splurged in this area and cut back in others, and we made the right decision! We are thrilled with the services we received.

When shopping for a dress, I had a hard time finding one that I liked that was within my budget, and ended up going to David's because there are some less expensive dresses there. The dress I bought was beautiful, beaded, fitted, and I received many compliments (and the pictures look amazing). The customer service was adequate, nothing fabulous and nothing horrendous. The price came up with the extras (I got a absolutely gorgeous veil hair comb, both that cost way too much but were perfect). The alterations were not done correctly but no one noticed except me, and like I said, the dress was still gorgeous.
