Donna (Co-owner of the store) created beautiful earrings for my bridal party and a wonderful earrings and necklace set for my mother. I was very happy with the quality and appearance of the pieces.
I ordered my veil from Occansey Designs - it arrived quickly and I was very happy with it!

When we ordered our custom letterpress invites from Jonathan Wright, it was the best deal that I had found for beautiful, two color, custom invites.
They were very easy to work with and I loved the results.
Unfortunately, the website doesn't have any samples yet, but I would recommend a visit to the store to look through their books.

Teness is a great person and a wonderful photographer. We could not be happier with our wedding photos and we had a lot of fun with her on our wedding day. We ended up going a bit over our original photography budget to hire her, but once we saw her website and then met with her, we didn't want to use anyone else. We don't reget that decision one bit.
Highly, highly recommend!

We served Sprinkles cupcakes at our wedding in place of wedding cake and they were a huge hit! Everyone wanted to know where the awesome cupcakes came from.
I ordered over the phone and arranged for them to be delivered to the reception site. They were delivered on time with no problems.
My one complaint would be that you can only order from the flavors that they make on the day of your wedding (for us it was Saturday flavors), so I couldn't get the mocha ones that I love, but we made do with what was available.
Our bridesmaids dresses, flower girl dress, ring bearer outfit and the ties for the groom and groomsmen all came from Saeyoung Vu. There were no problems that weren't immediately and easily fixed and, in my opinion, everyone looked great. I received a lot of compliments on the bridesmaids dresses (style - Emma Short) and one of my bridesmaids just wore her dress again to a wedding.
Saeyoung Vu also has beautiful wedding dresses in a range of prices.

I highly recommend Lisa and Ixora. The flowers for our wedding and reception were absolutely gorgeous. When I walked into the reception, I seriously gasped. I could not believe how many flowers there were and how beautiful every arrangement looked. I received so many compliments on the flowers.
Lisa was very easy to work with and had great ideas. She met with me several times and listened to my ideas and concerns. We also rented linens through her and she created special table runners to accomodate our location's fire code restrictions, all while staying within our budget.
I was very, very happy with Ixora.

We went to dinner at Cicada one night and my then boyfriend, now husband, said, "This would be an amazing place for a wedding reception." Turns out it was. The place itself is just so beautiful. We've seen it decorated for several different events and it always looks wonderful. We worked with Jennifer, who I think runs all of the events. She worked with us to create a menu that was within our budget, promptly returned any calls and emails and was very easy to work with. At the reception, I felt very well taken care of by the staff and the service was impeccable. During cocktail hour a waiter with a tray of appetizers was assigned to me so I could eat some of the food while taking pictures and greeting people. I felt pampered and catered to the whole night. I heard many positive comments about the waitstaff from our guests. The food was incredible too. The only snag was that they forgot that I had requested (and paid for!) the chivari chairs until my day of coordinator reminded them. They fixed that before any guests arrived for cocktail hour, but some of the detail photos taken before cocktail hour have the ugly chairs in them.
Overall, I highly recommend Cicada.
After all of the wedding planning, on the day of the wedding I wanted to hand it all over to someone else and actually be able to enjoy the day and focus on what was important, not all the little details.
I knew from our first meeting that Karri Lucas was the right choice. She was very calming and very organized, with great ideas.
Even though we hired her for just Day of Coordination, Karri was always available to me for questions and concerns and gave very helpful advice and suggestions.
On the day of the wedding, Karri and Courtney were on top of everything - the decor, the schedule, the entertainment, etc. If I needed anything, all I needed to do was look around and one of them was right there to assist me. Everything went smoothly that night and they were a huge part of that.
I would highly recommend Karri and Courtney - they were one of the best wedding decisions that I made.
