Carol was a dream come true. I so did not want a guy with bad highlights & a shiny vest behind some obnoxious sign screaming at our guests and playing songs that make my head hurt. A Starry Night is the antithesis of that AND, even better, you don't lose the banging party. Carol DJed our wedding and people have not stopped commenting on how great the music was and how she did not waste any time in getting the party started. Carol knew instinctively the exact vibe I wanted and made it come true. As a former DJ and a (recovering) control freak, it felt so good to just not worry about the music piece, knowing it was safe in Carol's capable hands. Beledo played beautiful piano for our ceremony music and guitar during the cocktail hour, then Carol took over for the reception and it was all just perfect (even with a rocky transition or two that snuck in). I worked exclusively with Carol in planning the music piece of our event and it could not have gone more smoothly. She was so responsive, calming and caring. She was the vendor I really looked forward to calling or e-mailing. It was also great just having their positive, calming spirits involved for the planning and execution of the wedding.

Sharan is a gem. She put together an incredibly personalized ceremony. Working with her was amazing. She is so attentive, caring and reassuring. She is supportive without being stifling - her mere presence is calming and is a blessing to have around at such an emotional time. She did a phenomenal job. Even during the reception, people were stopping me to tell me how much they loved listening to her (her voice is pretty fantastic) and how impressed they were with the ceremony. The positive comments have continued to pour in since. I could not recommend someone more highly.

Blissful Bonds CeremoniesWhat a beautiful review. I have to say, I truly love what I do and Jessica was just the perfect bride to work with. Thank you for the honor of officiating for you. Many years of happiness to you both!

We used Red Oak to get the bridal party & all their gear in vans to the venue so everyone could get ready. They were great in working with us (and not up-charging us just because it was, technically, a wedding - in stark contrast to everyone else with whom I spoke). They were also really responsive as I needed to change things around at the last minute and let me communicate with them via e-mail. We had an easy ride across town to the venue and the driver was great - very helpful in loading & unloading all of our gear.

A quote of over $10,000 for minimal set up for 20 tables and the ceremony space. Nothing crazy requested (no cut flowers, bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, draping, lounge-space set up) but a steely resolve to not work with my budget. Needless to say, I went elsewhere and have been very happy. Beautiful work but not for the faint of heart or budget.
