I was on a strict budget for flowers for my wedding and this florist really helped me with inexpensive alternates to flowers that are normally expensive. They did a fantastic job and my flowers were beautiful. They also helped with a unique design of the centerpieces for the reception and I only spent $300.00 on reception flowers. Jocelyn is great! I recommend her for bridal consultations.

I do not recommend this bakery for wedding cakes. I didn't get past the consultation. The sample book was old and outdated and the contact person assigned to us was rude. Instead of explaining what they could do, all she offered was what they couldn't do. All of my ideas and suggestions were shot down and that was just trying to pull elements together from cakes they already had in their book. It was a very unpleasant experience. The contact person was Bonnie.
I do not recommend this store for dress alterations. They have a great selection of dresses and my bridal consultant was great. Unfortunately, she left the store prior to my dress coming in. A friend of mine had an experience at this same store where her dress due to alterations was almost not ready in time for her wedding. They were late with the alterations. Knowing this information, I gave them a faux wedding date of a month prior to my actual wedding date. They cancelled my fittings twice on me. The second time I was insistent on trying on my dress regardless of the progress. It was ridiculous. They had my dress ready 3 days before my wedding date and when I went to try it on, the bustle was crooked and they had removed the hooks for my buttons without my permission. In the end, they gave me my dress the day before what they thought was my wedding. It was very stressful. I would not recommend this place for alterations.

We had a terrific DJ. A lot of the bonuses with Tim Benter is that he has been in the DJ'ing business for over 20 years, he's dj'd at numerous locations throughout southern california, brings his own lighting, sound system, and has a great selection of songs. He is a great MC with an upbeat personality and plays good music. He's able to feel the crowd and plays a great mix of dancing songs as well as slow dancing. He also offers consultations at no additional fee. One of the benefits for us was that he dj'd at our reception location numerous times before. Great DJ overall.

Leah Lee Photography is phenomenal. Leah Lee was one from a list of photographers I was referred to and I was able to narrow down my search off of her website alone. During the consultation (free of charge), her personality really sealed the deal since she was friendly, personable, outgoing, fun, funny, and re-inforced that she was there to work with the bride and groom. In a sense, she could do whatever we wanted. She is also willing to work with the packages she offers. Nothing is set in stone and they can be customized to fit the couple's needs. We are so pleased with our engagement pictures. She takes hundreds of photos, so there is great selection. They are also done in a timely manner. Within a couple of weeks, our proofs were ready to view via her website. We put about fifty of them in a guest book for our wedding, but there's more were weren't able to include that we plan on putting in our home. My friends and family have already asked for her information so they can utilize her services. I would use her again in a heartbeat!
