We knew as soon as we got engaged that we wanted Derek Photography to capture our special day. They were referred to us by several of our friends and family. Renee and Derek are so easy to work with and they make a great team. They are very accommodating and were great to have around on our wedding day. Our pictures came out great! We are so glad we decided to go with Derek Photography!

We found El Real Chamber Players on GigMasters.com where you can find almost every trio, quartet, harpist, etc. Out of all the string trios/quartets, El Real Chambers had the most and best reviews so we decided to reach out them. Hannah always responded very quickly whenever we reached out to her with questions or concerns. She was very accommodating when I was looking for song selections that they may have played in the past. On the day of our wedding, El Real Chambers was scheduled to start playing at 4pm. Due to the location of our venue (Malibu) we were concerned some of our vendors would be late, but they were actually there as early as 1:30pm and started practicing and making sure they were set up correctly. They truly earned their five stars.
Katie B's makeup artistry is truly amazing! I knew as soon as I got engaged that I wanted her to do my bridal makeup and hair because I've seen her flawless work in the past on other brides I know. She was a little over my budget, but she totally worked with me by offering to meet for a consultation instead of a preview. She always responded quickly when I had questions and made me feel at ease to the point where I felt like we were just good friends hanging out.
She is extremely professional and has her schedule/timing down to a science! Since she is high in demand, she easily does 2 to 3 weddings in one day (which made me nervous, but I realized on my wedding day that she is just that good!). She was punctual (actually even half an hour early!) and she did make sure there was more than enough time to do my hair and makeup on my wedding day without me feeling rushed! She took her time to make sure I looked perfect and that I was completely satisfied with every single detail of my makeup and hair before she left. The whole time she was very friendly which made me forget about the stress of my wedding day. Katie B and her husband-to-be made a great team!
Everyone loved my makeup and so did my husband...I truly felt and looked my best on my wedding day. Katie B assured me that my makeup would stay all day and night and it sure did! I even fell asleep with everything on because I was so exhausted and my makeup was still intact in the morning! On your wedding day you should look and feel your best which is why I highly recommend Katie B to everyone! She's worth every penny!

Chiavari Chairs 4 rent had very competitive prices and great customer service. All of the chairs were in great condition and were delivered on time (actually first thing in the morning!). There are a few other companies that may have them for a little less, but the condition does not compare and Chiavari Chairs 4 rent are extremely dependable. However, most companies charge more than double for the chairs (as much as $12.50/chair), so even with the delivery charge to Malibu, it still came out to less per chair. They even let us change the type of wood from mahogany to nutwood a couple months before the wedding. We dealt with Debbie, Stefani, and Mike throughout the process and all of our inquiries were answered within one day or less.
The only thing that would've made things a little easier would be pictures of every chiavari chair color on their website to compare because "mahogany" and "nutwood" colors vary from vendor to vendor. I didn't realize nutwood was darker than mahogany. But they were very understanding with the change and were extremely accommodating.
Thank you Mike, Debbie, and Stefani!
