Naomi's Chocolate Fountains
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The chocolate fountain was great; people loved it! Working with Naomi was great. She is very reasonably priced and a pleasure to work with. She told me how many dipping items to get and I got most of the stuff from Costco, except the strawberries, which I got at a market.

Margaret's French Bakery
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
All I can say is, the BEST cake I've ever had. Margaret was another one of my top 3 vendors. She was a pleasure to work with. We tasted soooo many cakes from A Piece of Cake Bakery to Jen's Cakes. We wanted tiramisu cake and all the cakes we tasted either did not taste like tiramisu or they did not use real mascapone cheese and coffee. Margaret's cakes were moist and fluffy and she uses real ingredients instead of cake mix. I know a lot of people say how they barely tasted the cake and wish they ate more on their wedding day. Well, I had two pieces on the wedding day and we finished the leftover cake the next day. It was simply the best cake I've had!!! When I talked to Margaret on the phone before the wedding, I told her I could not wait to taste the cake. She said she cannot wait to see it. It was a gorgeous cake; it turned out better than we expected.

Si Arima Alterations
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Si is absolutely great and super-sweet! She altered my dress exactly how I wanted it and the bustle was perfect. She is very reasonably priced as well. One of my bridesmaids also went to her for alterations and was happy.

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I loved, loved, loved Lisette and her work. She was also one of my top 3 vendors, if not my favorite. She is very sweet. I felt great and confident all day because of the great job she did. This was the best I have even looked. The makeup stayed on all day and night, no need for touchups even though she gave me a pressed powder. She is very talented and did an amazing job. If you get one trial and book with her, she includes a second trial for free. This really helped me because after the first trial I took down some notes on a couple of things to try during the next trial. I absolutely loved the second trial and told her this is exactly how I want my makeup and she wrote down all the details. What really helped was that I took pictures during all my makeup trials and looked at the pictures to make sure the makeup looks good.

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I worked with Wafaa at Elegant Lace. She was great! Everyone in this store is super-friendly and very helpful, totally different than the snobbish attitude I got at Trudy's (where they would not even let me browse through the dresses and had a 3 dresses max you can try on and you need an appointment). At Elegant Lace, you can just show up and they let your browse for hours. I ended up trying on 4 dresses and one of them was the one I bought. It arrived in 3 or 4 months, I don't remember exactly. They offer free pressing of the dress you buy, so I brought back my dress a week before the wedding and they pressed it. There was also a stain on the dress probably from the many times I tried it on and they removed it for me.

Jerdon
 
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
I bought stationery from Jerdon to make our menu cards, place cards, and table numbers. The stationery the store offers is nice, but the service if very poor. I bought the last stock of paper I was using for the menu cards and wanted to get more. The lady said she'll order some and get back to me. I never heard from her for about a month and she never answers the phone. So I had to go to the store in person to see if the order arrived. It was not there and she said she'll call me. Again, no phone call from her. One week before the wedding I went to the store again. The order (if she ever placed it) had not arrived and she said the company (Crane's) was not responding to her. Anyway, I gave up at that point and used other stationery for the menu cards. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Karen Haughey
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Karen was great! We met with a lot of ministers and picked her because she was so happy, warm, and caring. Other ministers we met with had restrictions and also wanted us to follow their ceremony text. Karen said she'll do anything we wanted. She did a wonderful job with the ceremony and made a lot of people cry :)
