We loved our photos from eight20. They are accommodating and easy going. So easy to work with. They captured many great photos of our wedding. Their images evoke emotion, and aren't boring/staged. I love them, and so glad we had them there to document our big day. I highly, highly recommend them.
Annie was a dream to work with. She does fantastic makeup and is very professional. She made me look very natural, yet enhanced. She’s particularly good at making sure the foundation is natural and not cakey. She’s a master with eyes, too. I went to 4 (yes, four!) trials with different makeup artists and wasn’t 100% happy until I met Annie. She is professional, dependable, and has serious talent. She has a very large collection of makeup (all of which she keeps extremely clean), and is the nicest person ever. She uses NARS, Smashbox, and other quality brands.

Dawn was professional and accommodating. We had to modify our order alcohol order several times, and Dawn provided great recommendations. Delivery and pick up went very smoothly. Highly recommended!

EXCELLENT! Super affordable, quality work! Fionna did a stellar job on my dress. She dropped the waist (so the top would sit higher), did a great French bustle (my train was very long), hemmed it, and let out the hips. It fit perfectly. I was very impressed with the quality of her work. She charges so much less than other shops do, and does excellent work. And she’s so nice and easy going! Her shop has a large selection of dresses. Definitely a good salon to check out!
I went to various bridal salons to try on dresses, and finally settled on Pronovias “Ipanema”. Beautiful, lightweight silk dupioni gown with a modified mermaid silhouette. Stacey was very responsive to emails. I was able to purchase my dress for 50% less than the bridal salon price. My dress came in 2 months early, perfectly packaged in a garment bag.

As an alumni of this school, it was very meaningful to have my wedding here. The campus & venues are gorgeous! Beautiful and unique setting for photos. Ceremony/reception site required little decoration. Spanish style architecture, with a large reception room with a high, wood-beamed ceiling. We had a separate lounge area for our bar, which had couches and chairs. This was included with the reception rental price. It was nice to have different rooms for our guests to wander around. Mary Grogan, Director of Campus Dining/Events, was a dream to work with. She is detail oriented and organized. She accommodated all our requests (e.g. I didn’t want tip jars out, I wanted tables placed a certain way, etc.) Her staff were attentive and efficient on the day of. Everything was set up exactly the way we planned. Oxy is a beautiful and very affordable place to have a wedding. You don’t have to be alumni to have a wedding there. In addition, food was excellent. They have a terrific and diverse menu of plated or buffet entrees, as well as a ton of delicious appetizers. And no, it doesn’t taste like dorm food. The bartenders are knowledgeable and professional. You can bring in your own liquor, which saved us a ton of $$! This venue was great because there were so many extras that were part of the overall price. They didn’t try to sneak in extra costs like many other typical wedding venues.
Easy going and fantastic to work with. Professional, on time, not cheesy, and has a diverse selection of music. We had a few surprises throughout the wedding, and Tom went with the flow and never complained. He was a great MC (when we wanted him to make announcements) and helped move the party along. He has there every step of the way, reminding us about the cake cutting, speeches, bouquet toss, etc. My DH and I are music snobs and provided Tom with an eclectic list of songs. We were surprised that he had them all and then some! I highly recommend Tom. He is an affordable and wonderful DJ.

Love Michelle Brue. She is professional, affordable, and wonderful to work with. She helped bring my vision to life and worked within our budget. Everyone commented on how beautiful the flowers were. My mom couldn’t believe what we got for the price. Our guests took home every single arrangement, even the mini cubes of flowers on the place card table! I asked Michelle for something feminine, pretty, and not too “bridal” – and got exactly that. She even offered a free sample session without us having to request one. She really went beyond our expectations. I’m not particularly picky about flowers, but I know cheap arrangements when I see them. I’ve been to over 100 weddings in my life, and know wedding flowers pretty well. My arrangements were dense, fresh, and professionally done. The bouquets were especially stunning. I was surprised how many flowers were used for the bridesmaids bouquets. The colors really popped in photographs. Her arrangements helped tie the look of the event together. Nothing looked too contrived. One of my favorite things about Michelle is that she isn’t high maintenance. On the day of, she showed up on time and took care of everything. I didn’t have to worry about her at all. By the time I arrived at the venue, everything was set up perfectly. I highly recommend Flora by Fauna.
