Ryann from Cheesy Photobooths is great. Not only was the picture quality amazing and the service excellent, but my guests had a great time with it and not having to deal with the supplies or putting the book together made it all sooooo easy and a GREAT way to remember our wedding.

Everyone was easy to work with. they customized our banner exactly how we wanted it and I couldn't ask for a better experience with them.

I'd highly recommend them and a photobooth in general for almost any event... My nephew showed up in 30+ of the photobooth picture sets... all the guests - young and old LOVED it and having props there (bought at dollar/party store) made it even more fun!

Not only as sweet as the candy buffets she designs, Jackie is fun and adorable.

Her designs are amazing and her attitude professional. She knows how to keep things fun and she makes you even more excited for your own event. She has great ideas and I left the whole thing in her hands and she was awesome.

My guests love the added detail, and some of the adults had to be held back to allow the kids to enjoy it as well.

Any other event i ever have in the So-Cal area, I would use Jackie... she makes weddings, birthdays, and ANY type of party more fun... just by being part of it.

I love Flower Allie!!!

From beginning to end, Allie was amazing. She is a creative genius and is on top of the latest trends and classic styles. I met her alone and with my planner and she not only gave us an amazing Deal, she helped come up with the creative design. From last minute additions and changes, I left everything up to Allie and she was AMAZING!!!! I couldn't recommend her more... I had ideas of what i wanted, she used those as the root and groomed them into amazing details and designs.

We still get compliments on EVERYTHING. Here are some links below to see for yourself.

Paola is simply amazing. From the very first conversation we had which was about 20 months pre-wedding date and til this day, she's just such an awesome person and planner.

We had various things that made wedding planning a bit difficult (all of which she handled with grace, advice, ideas and efficiency). A 23 month engagement. Long Distance Planning - venue search wasn't easy. Finding a venue that wouldn't let us lock things in until 12 months out, but still "planning" tentatively. She helped with the decor, ideas and worked well with all my other vendors and came to my floral meetings. Her ideas were great. She has an eye for style and insight into her couples. She didn't base her suggestions on her own style alone, rather she would give suggestions that were based upon us as the couple, with a chic twist.

She referred a great list of vendors, was very knowledgeable of vendors and worked well with vendors, even the ones who may play better alone.

Without her assisting in coordinating the day of, there was many things that could have gone wrong. We had a large wedding party, we had a lot of family and it was multi-cultural - Korean / American wedding which made seating always fun to deal with.

She handled EVERYTHING with so much grace and ease. Any issues we had, I don't even know about aside from the second alcohol run at the beginning of the reception LOL.

I couldn't recommend her more. As a person she is solid. As a planner she is amazing. As a coordinator she is efficient. You really can't ask for more. She is flexible, rolled with all the punches and REALLY cared about helping my vision but more than that... she cared about the meaning behind the wedding and not just the logistics. At one point, she had to nicely remind me that focusing on our vows and each other was much more important than the timing of the sermon or the bells that tolled every so often. It made me realize that at the moment I could have lost focus of what we were doing and why... Paola's focus remained on the purpose and meaning of our big celebration while efficiently and diligently keeping all the logistics going smoothly.

I worked with Paola from May of 2008 until March of 2010. I can't recommend her anymore. My husband loved her. Her references saved us money, gave us QUALITY vendors and a seamless experience.

Oh, and the rain ... let's just say she snagged us one of the last clear top tents for our outdoor wedding on Oscar weekend. I had my planted aisle, my perfect ceremony and my view of the rain/storms but not a drop on us! She is so resourceful!

This is THE best chocolate fountain EVER!
My husband doesn't even like chocolate... and he gripes about missing his marital dinner, but he made time for TWO plates of this on our wedding night. I've had guests tell me over and over again that night and to this day how wonderful the chocolate was... how fresh the fruit was and how it was just an amazing detail to have at our wedding.

The experience was smooth, flawless and very professional ... they were detailed in describing what was needed to make sure this would go off without a hitch... and it did.

i couldn't recommend them more - and not just for weddings :)

Therapist or dance teacher? Deborah Joy is awesome. We booked her a bit last minute, but she was able to work us into her schedule. Amidst the snow storms and rush of the last minute wedding jitters, Deborah not only helped my husband gain confidence but also excitement at the prospect of our first dance.

My husband and I blogged our way through a He Said She Said series journaling how we felt from before our first lesson and our expectations to recapping the actual dance. (You can find that here )

I can't tell you enough what Deborah had to work with. My husband hated dancing, he didn't think it was something he could do - let alone find enjoyable and on the day of, he was the one who insisted we do THE dance even though I was nervous and considered doing the high school sway. Nobody could believe that he did such an amazing job - and although we made our mistakes here and there, we enjoyed our first dance. We had fun and our guests LOVED it...

I can honestly say that without Deborah's Guidance, the tone that we set at our reception would have been completely different!

The Garter Girl
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I recently purchased a garter for my friend's wedding. Julianne not only filled the order quickly, she customized it with the bride and groom's initial and the wedding date. It was a definite hit and a great keepsake for the bride. Her work is quality, her personality is awesome... and she's so willing to work with her clients. My garter that Julianne Smith made for my wedding was simply gorgeous. I was a little sad when i saw her new line of designs b/c they are so gorgeous, but it seems she just gets better and better. Her designs are customized unique and just so pretty. The quality and craftsmanship of work are very detailed and perfect and she's such an awesome person to work with! Check out pics here

I just had my engagement session with Jordana and it was unbelievable. I'll probably update this review after the actual wedding, but Jordana was my first vendor that i booked after I booked Paola (Just chic Events) last November. B/c i couldn't get my venue contract til 12 months out from the date, Jordana was more than willing to sign a contract that may have a potential change in date if she was available. She walked me through all the silly questions i had about engagement shoots. suggested an amazing places to have the shoot and really put my picture shy fiance at ease. She is not only an amazingly talented photographer, her personality is so cute and awesome you just want to have a good time with her! SHE's AWESOME!
