Wedding Time Photography
Wedding Time is a jem. I am getting married in two weeks and I couldn't be more thrilled to wear my Mikealla dress I'm renting from Wedding Time. I only went to two bridal shops. Sue won me over for two reasons, her honesty and her prices. I tried on about 10 dresses the first time and Sue told me which ones looked good and which ones just didn't make any sense for my size, I'm really short. I went to Wedding Time specifically because Sue had the dress I had seen in a magazine and lucky for me, we both liked the way it fit. Renting my dress is a dream come true, I couldn't have afforded it other wise. I have had two alteration sessions with Sue and her attention to detail is amazing. She is one of the only bridal shops owner you will come in contact with that knows cuts, designers and how to do the alterations herself. Don't forget to ask about all the goodies you get with your rental: veil, jewelery, shrug cleaning and alterations. Don't let the location fool you, Wedding Time is four star Beverly Hills quality all the way.

If there is one word to describe Carina at Tealight Weddings it is Extraordinary. I hired Carina for my wedding March 20th, 2010. From the start Carina made me feel like a friend not a client. She is so easy to talk to and truly listens to all your concerns. She knows every in and out of planning this big day so well that you can never feel like you are throwing her a curve ball, or being a pain in her side. I called her early on with a small melt down and right away she was able to calm me down. She assured me that my problems are nothing new and to that Im not alone. I only hired her for the day of service but she walked into that day as if she had planned it herself. From the first meeting to the final detail on my wedding day I never felt worried. Carina is a strong individual who puts her foot down when necessary with vendors and bridal party alike. (trust me some times your bridal party will need it). I had planned the decoration, which Carina helped the florist set up just the way I had envisioned. She also took my extra decoration and used it in areas I had never thought of. She is what every girl needs on her wedding day!

Jackie's Cake Creations
After doing the normal run around town trying baker after baker I was lucky enough to find Jackie. Jackie is by far one of the best kept secrets in the Valley. Jackie is a wonderfully warm and inviting person. My first meeting with her was wonderful. She asked my husband and I what kind of cake we wanted to try instead of giving us a sample of everything. I love that because there are so many flavors that I knew ahead of time I didn't want to try. Why should we be forced to try so many items when we really only have to try 3 or 4. She then makes you a piece of cake. She listens to what you like then goes in the back and makes a huge piece of layered cake with the fillings and cake flavors she feels would match your style. Warning, don't eat before you go there, the samples are huge. You need a to go box! Now on to my wedding day. Leading up to the big day Jackie took all my calls, even the one from Joan's Fabric while i was picking out decorations. We had a design concept in mind but I left the final touches up to her. Jackie put the whole cake together on site and it was more beautiful then anything I could have imagined. Then there was the moist amazing cake. It is two weeks later I am still hearing about the unbelievable cake. People keep asking me where it came from, how does she get it so moist and filled with flavor? What was that amazing filling? Her prices are wonderful and she is wonderful.
