I would highly recommend this vendor for anyone who is looking for quality, but also a reasonable price. We initially researched all of the vendors in the neighboring towns and we found that Axiom was the most willing to help us create a package that worked for us. They were very professional the day of the wedding and we even had them do the projection for our slide show. Everything went great. The camera man seemed kind of invisible - but in my opinion that is how it should be in order to capture all of those beautiful candid moments. After the wedding, Robert was generous enough to tack on a few extra things to our package because it took a little longer than expected to get the videos. He was very friendly and easy to reach. All around a great experience. Thank you very much for everything and most importantly for a video that will last a lifetime!

I had started my wedding dress search at Kleinfeld's just because I had heard so much about it and the huge selection that they have. The first time I went I brought a few of my friends with me and ended up finding the dress of my dreams. However, the sales person I had was absolutely awful. First of all she asked me my budget I told her $5000, the first dress she brought back within minutes was first of all hideous (nothing like what I described to her) and second of all $6000. Then she brought a few more back and it was clear she hadn't listened to a word I said, so she allowed me to go in the back and look at gowns. I picked out a few and then a few from the Augusta Jones trunk show. I tried on 2/3 before i found one i really liked. Then i kept going and found the gown from the show that I loved. She could tell that I loved it and she started pushing like you wouldn't believe. But due to the fact that we could not get the store camera to work and my mom couldn't see it via computer I had to pass. Although first she gave me speech after speech how I wouldn't be able to find it again, especially at this price (2500) etc etc. But luckily, one of my friends I had with me was in fashion and said you will have no problem finding this dress whether while its in a different location or when its available for good in stores. So we left.... I ended up buying the gown at an amazing boutique called Exquisite Bride in Princeton, NJ for 1800 which included everything including alterations!!!
Then I came back for a sample sale which had about 30 hideous gowns on sale total. This time I had Camille who was very nice, but also rushed me quiet a bit since she understood I was not buying because my mom wasn't there. Then, my mom and sister came to NY and we went back to Kleinfeld's and again saw Camille. Although she was very nice and patient, I still felt she was pushing a lot and I was just not ready to settle on this gown because it was a bit too yellow first of all and secondly they wanted a flat fee of $600 for alterations!
All in all I felt that Kleinfeld's does give you a very neat experience IF you are going to assure then from moment #1 that you will buy. As portrayed in their TV show they are all about they sale. They are very impersonal and to them you are just another bride. I would not recommend Kleinfeld's, because they are extremely overpriced and very overrated.

I have been scouting out wedding planners for a while, and finally had the opportunity to meet with Melissa from Dream It Events. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about her, even though I did not end up choosing her. Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to meet with her partner because she had just given birth, but judging by Melissa and her enthusiasm I could tell that they were an excellent team. They opened their business fairly recently, and have already had multiple clients all of whom seemed very happy with their work. I liked all the details that Melissa offered in her packages, and she seems like she had really customized her packages and services offered, with ever T cross and ever I dotted! Also, their prices are unbeatable. For a very low price you get two people coordinating instead of one! They have multiple packages to suit everyone's needs. The only reason that I am giving these two 4/5 stars is because they are very new to the business and experience makes perfect!

Huy was absolutely wonderful. I contacted him very late in the game to photograph our engagement party and he ended up being great! I emailed him originally and explained my situation, that this was only an engagement party so all I wanted was 4 hours of photography + a CD with all of the proofs, I did not need a book or anything. He quoted me an excellent price recognizing the fact that this was not a wedding and did not require as much time or energy and he even offered to throw in an album with 150 of our favourite pictures. The day of the event he arrived at the restaurant even before I did (and i was there about half an hour early). To me it was very important that he just take as many pictures as possible and he did just that. He ended up taking about 500 pictures during our 4 hour event. At the end of the event when he no longer had an obligation to stay, he stayed anyway and captured about 50 photos in the last 20 minutes of my family, my fiancé's family, and us with the different spectacular views around us. The pictures came out wonderful and he sent the CD within one week of time, just as promised. Overall he was wonderful and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!!!
