Bella Blush Hair and Makeup Design
Karis is AMAZING! She came and did a trial run with me at my home. I had a hair picture but nothing for the makeup. In fact, I originally intended to use her ideas for makeup and probably do my own. When she finished with the trial, my hair looked exactly like the model's and my face was TRANSFORMED. I was shocked. I booked her on the spot to do my hair and makeup day of. On the wedding day, she came bright and early and set up shop. She is fun to chat with and she just does amazing work. I am so thankful that I found her on here and I would totally recommend her to others.

As soon as my husband and I decided we wanted to check out photo booths for the wedding, Cheesy made it into the top three. We liked the look of their booth (some others look a little more... home made.) We also liked their price and flexibility. They were an amazing addition to the wedding and you know your guests had fun when you find out that your co-workers have been telling other co-workers what a great time they had in the photo booth and I wasn't even part of the conversation! The guy running it was funny and professional and even offered extra print outs to my bridesmaids who were trying to all take home the same copy. Our photo book came very quickly and they did a great job. As an extra thank you to our guests, we were able to easily email them the digital pictures for their use as well. We would totally recommend Cheesy to others!

We ordered these online without proofs and they came really quickly and exactly as ordered. My only reason for not giving them a solid 5 stars was that I wished the paper had been just a little thicker cardstock. All of our invites got to the guests and came back, and we got tons of compliments on their design and they really just fit us. I would totally recommend them. :-)

We were really impressed with Luke, who was our DJ for our 11/15/08 wedding. He was able to meet us at the venue and check out the electrical stuff the venue had and then cater a package to our specific needs (instead of guessing if we needed another system for the ceremony and then reception.) He played all the exact music on queue and was friendly and fun with everyone. We would totally recommend him to everyone!

Mission Tux Shop
We had gone to both Men's Warehouse and Friar Tux and were completely frustrated with the lack of knowledge from the staff. We didn't know anything about renting tuxedos and had questions on how to fit all of the men, who have VERY different body shapes, and make them look good. Neither store could give us a good answer. We walked into Mission Tux and got a completely different answer. The staff explained how tuxedos are made, what to look for, and what would look good. He was patient when we couldn't decide on vests and did a fitting on the spot (we got the runaround from the other two places on who would be able to try on, get measured, etc.) Their prices were even a little below what we found in the other stores. When the day came, everything was flawless and the men were all happy with their tuxedos. We would totally recommend them in a heartbeat.

Traveler's Joy Honeymoon Registry
We set this up for our honeymoon cruise (the excursions mostly) and it was a HIT! Unlike our Bed, Bath & Beyond registry, EVERYTHING was purchased from our registry - people got emotionally involved in our trip, and people keep telling me what a great idea it was. It was totally simple to use and we would completely recommend this to everyone!

I went to the Costa Mesa store with a list I created online. I had made an appointment and walked right in and was assigned to someone. She immediately went and started helping me pull the dresses in my size and then once I got in the dressing room, she was off to find me a bra and the underskirt thing. I was by myself and she was fantastic - she even offered to take pictures of me when other stores had told me no. I found my dress (the 4th one I tried on) and it was on sale. I bought the gown of my dreams as easily as buying a pair of shoes. I took my girls back to the same store to get their dresses. They were on clearance, but the associate ran around looking for sizes in other colors, just so they could get an idea on fit. Even though they have a sign about picking up gowns in a timely fashion, my maid of honor took like 4 months to get hers and they didn't bug her at all about it. The bustling was a breeze and I loved the coupons that I got for other stores. Everything was a great experience!

Henry Chan Photography
Henry was an amazing photographer to work with. I found him here and based on the reviews, decided to give him a call. Unlike some other photographers I had contacted, he didn't give me the runaround and I was really impressed with his follow up emails confirming our appointment and including a map. Another photographer we had met with completely forgot about the meeting and left us hanging and only returned my call a week later with excuses. Henry was professional and it is obvious how passionate he is about photography. We felt like we instantly clicked with him and his style and felt very comfortable with him shooting our wedding. His communication and follow up are fantastic and I knew that he wouldn't let us down. The day of our wedding was amazing and he captured every angle. His turnaround time is fantastic and we just felt like he wanted to make sure that we were happy with his work. I/we would totally recommend him!

Soiree is AMAZING!!!!! They do all kinds of catering, so the special events team of my old job had worked with them a lot and they came highly recommended. We chose them because they were the ones who catered our venue, and they were AMAZING. Seriously we could not have gotten better service, quality of food, amazing customer service, etc. They catered our 11/15/08 wedding and every detail was amazingly handled. Everyone was professional and polite and just FUN! The staff is above and beyond and people were talking for days about the food. They also let us take the leftovers home - how cool is that? I would totally recommend them to everyone! They also have a HUGE menu selection so you can customize anything to your budget.
