Isabel was great! Because we were on a budget, we decided to hire her to shoot, but not edit, our wedding. (We got the tapes at the end of the night, and we'll edit the footage ourselves.) Isabel's work was great. She caught great moments on video, and most of the time I wasn't even aware that she was there. She was incredibly professional, and she's definitely a sweetheart. I'm so glad we hired her. I'd definitely recommend her.

Kate Baker Floral Design
I love Kate! She was such a gem throughout the entire wedding planning process. During our first meeting, my fiance and I explained that we were on a tight budget and were paying for our entire wedding ourselves. Kate managed to work around our budget so that we paid what we were hoping to pay and still got absolutely beautiful flowers. Our centerpieces were gorgeous (we gave them away at the end of the wedding, and I had friends who were trying to take more than one home!), and our ceremony photos are stunning, thanks to her work. She was the first vendor at the ceremony site, and was there setting up before anyone else even arrived. I would highly recommend her.

DJ Michael McNeil / Ovation Entertainment
I don't think I can say enough great things about Michael. I found out about him while getting references for our photographer. A woman I emailed for a reference said, "oh, by the way, definitely use our DJ. He was amazing!" I emailed Michael and sure enough, he turned out to be the best vendor we had. Throughout our wedding planning process he stayed in touch with my fiance and me to make sure we had everything we needed. He met with both of us together twice - once as an introductory meeting, and once as a formal "let's go through the entire wedding step-by-step" deal. He also went to Calamigos Equestrian Center (the wedding site) with my fiance to check the place out, because he'd never been there before and he wanted to get the lay of the land. THEN he called us the weekend before the wedding to go over all the details - every major song, the timeline of the night, the pronunciation of the groomsmen and bridesmaids' names, etc. He also provided us with microphones and speakers for the ceremony, and recommended the amazing guitar player we hired for our ceremony. Throughout everything he was so sweet and truly professional. And not at all expensive. (He gives free quotes through his website, too.) Definitely someone I'd recommend to anyone looking for a great DJ.
