Rev. Carolyn Alexander
Rev. Carolyn Alexander is such a wonderful person! She makes the wedding really warm and nice and is such a lovely person to be with. The whole wedding process was very easy. She has a cheat sheet on how to walk the isle, and a well organized list of vows that we choose and personalize with. Thank you!

I'm not sure why the previous poster had so much problems but Ivan was pretty funny and professional. He pretty much took care of all the schedule for us, from the beginning of the dinner banquet to changing clothes to games for guests and everything until the end of the banquet. With Ivan the whole thing was very much carefree. Yes he does charge separately for DJ and the equipment rental services, but it was well disclosed with us before we signed up with him. Overall pretty happy with him. The jokes are fine, they're typical Chinese jokes and nothing that is too far from normal. I think the guests had a lot of fun as he kept everyone up to toe, and the music selection was fine too. The only thing that was funny was he was trying to sing karaoke (he's OK, not spectacular, but OK) and tried to get everyone to sing but no one wanted to come up. Anyways, yes I'd recommend him. He's pretty funny and easy to get along with. If you have any question let me know. Our web site is http://pamandkev.com you can check out our pictures and you'll see Ivan's pictures too.

Not bad. Not the cheapest, but not the most expensive either. The selections are pretty good. But let me tell you something-- the taste is perfect for Asians. Not too sweet, just right! The problem with most vendors is they overload the cake with sugar, and most of us Asians just hate those overly sugar coated cakes. But Van's Bakery is just about right. One thing to note is that they have different costs depending on whether you choose to get flowers from them or from your own flower vendor. We used our own flower vendor because of what others have said about Van's flowers. Also, make sure to return the pedestals and other things or else they'll actually charge you. Overall, quick, easy, simple, and the taste is perfect for Asian taste-buds. I'd recommend.

We shopped around the Las Tunas wedding district area maybe 8 times before deciding on Ivan. Why did we finally decide on Ivan? He is pretty friendly and his work is pretty good. Since he also does wholesale for albums and frames, he got us the most amazing deals for albums and pictures + frames! You will not find a better deal than Ivan because of his direct affiliations to professional photo labs, the same ones that other professionals use... except Ivan does not mark-up the prices for you! He pretty much passed on tremendous savings to us. Overall pretty happy with his services and his work. You should definitely check out his web site: http://PhotographyIvan.com
