ECHOUMAKEUP MAKEUP & HAIR STUDIO {AIRBRUSH / HAIR EXTENSION}
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I've already been to Elaine twice, once for my engagement photos and once for my makeup/hair trial. She is, in a word, AWESOME! For those of you, like me, who doesn't usually wear tons of makeup, Elaine will make you look gorgeous and natural at the same time. Her prices are reasonable and she's incredibly nice. She works mostly out of her home, but will travel if needed. I highly HIGHLY recommend her and completely trust her to make me look FABULOUS on my wedding day. :D

deCroupet's- the Cake Sisters
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The cupcakes we ordered from deCroupet were AWESOME! The look: For our wedding, we rented a cupcake tree from them and ordered six dozen cupcakes. Since our wedding theme was the chinese 'double happiness' symbol, I printed out the character and asked them to use it as the design on the cupcakes. I was a little worried as to how they would turn out....but all my worries were put to rest when I saw the cupcakes and they looked BEAUTIFUL! The taste: Instead of having the usual chocolate or white cake, deCroupet's cupcakes are basically miniature versions of their cakes. You can get any flavor you want. My husband and I went in for a cake tasting before our wedding and fell in love with their marble cake with bavarian chocolate chips and cream cheese icing as well as their vanilla cake with rasberry mousse filling. THEY WERE AWESOME!

Nopushover said it all....just a few more notes to add: Ellen and Melissa were both great to work with. Both were very attentive and responsive no matter how many times you call them or email them. The first time I met Ellen to go over initial details about the possiblity of having a wedding at Lawry's, she was very honest and upfront about what worked in the past and what didn't...they are clear about what you will be paying for and what you can work with. They don't have any hidden fees or charges that you only notice AFTER the fact. In fact, our reception came UNDER budget! Also, unlike MOST venues, they only charge you for the amount of people they actually serve on the day of your wedding. However, they base the gratuity on the final headcount you give them the day before....which is fair, because they have to account for the amount of staff that have to come in early to accomodate your guest count no matter if the guests show up. I can go on and on about how great Lawry's is...having our wedding there was the best and easiest decision we made! Not a lot of people know that Lawry's can do weddings...but based on word-of-mouth, I'm sure the secret will be out soon, so book them TODAY if you haven't decided on a venue yet.

Ted Nichelson, Harpist
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Dr. Ted Nichelson truly contributed to the success of our wedding. Our ceremony room wasn't big enough to hold a string quartet, so we decided to look for a harpist to play for our wedding. Like most people, we first went by word of mouth, then got on the internet to look for vendors. Finally, we came across www.yourharpist.com. I knew I found the right person when he responded to my inquiry within a day. He's fair in his price and his talent speaks for itself. All of our guests raved about how beautiful our ceremony was, all thanks to the beautiful music Dr. Nichelson provided. I thought I was taking a chance when I hired him because I had never met him in person and had only communicated with him mainly through email. However, all of my worries were put to rest when he actually called me a week before the wedding to confirm the details! He was prompt and played until the end of our ceremony, from beginning to end, he played for more than the hour we hired him for. Dr. Nichelson's talent and his sense of responsibility to his clients makes him the top choice for any occasion.

Flower Mart
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I don't know how many of you out there have been horrified at the kind of prices florists quote for weddings. I sure was when I first began my search...until I found Temple City Flower Mart. I used to live in Temple City and have driven by this florist thousands of times, but never thought to stop by...and man, am I glad I did. Shirley is the person I've been in contact with. She's not only professional, but incredibly nice and understanding as well. I went to her with very little idea of what exactly I wanted, but knew exactly how much money I DIDN'T want to spend. She was able to work with my budget and came up with beautiful ideas for both bouquets and centerpieces. Our wedding is in March, so I will give my final review then...and barring any natural disasters or freak accidents, I can't see it being anything less than a perfect 10. :D UPDATE: My wedding went off without a hitch and the flowers were absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Not only that, our ceremony was in the morning (10:30am) which meant all the flowers had to be delivered and setup at 745am! Not only were they on time, but the ceremony and reception hall looked just as I had imagined it....thank you Shirley!
