We absolutely LOVED our venue. It has an old, Hollywood glamour feel to it that we knew we wanted. Not only is this a beautiful site but the staff are incredible. We worked with the catering manager there, Smiljana, who was absolutely wonderful and accommodating. On the day of the wedding, we were blown away by the professionalism, service and food. The dinner captain, Victor, has been there for over 25 years and it shows. Everything went smoothly, the presentation was beautiful and the food was delectable. Our guests are still talking about it! I would recommend this site to anyone who is looking for a venue with an old, Hollywood feel and with staff who know how to run a wedding.

Larry Gootkin Entertainment
We are so happy that we hired Larry as our MC. He has years of experience and it definitely shows. He made sure that everything was moving smoothly throughout the night and he kept people on the dance floor, which was most important to us. He and his band are simply phenomenal. Many of our guests asked us where did we find such a great bandleader (herecomestheguide.com). Our wedding wouldnt have been such a success without Larry. Cannot recommend him enough!!

Not From a Box.com
We got our save-the-dates, invitations, placecards, menus and programs from them and they are wonderful! I loved working with Amy and Brita. They were so patient with me while I kept changing and revising designs and wording until I was 100% happy. They are really creative and helpful and its really a bargain for what you get. I will definitely be ordering all of my paper needs from them in the future.

On Bended Knee Films
**HIGHLY RECOMMENDED** Jeremy was one of our favorites vendors! We got our video two weeks after our wedding (which I think is unheard of) and we still cant stop watching it. It is so wonderful to have a memory like that from our wedding day. He was professional, completely unobtrusive and just a pleasure to work with. He was a vendor that I knew I did not have to worry about. He was always responsive to my emails in a timely manner and could answer any questions that I had. The video is of the highest quality and the montages are such great fun and so creative. The editing just took our breath away. Jeremy also gave us more than we expected; he threw in an extra montage and provided us with extra copies, all free of charge. He even took the time to use the same font as we used on our invitations, programs, menus, etc. If anyone is looking for high quality, professional wedding videos at an affordable price, then I would definitely recommend Jeremy.

Andres Floral and Event Design
**HIGHLY RECOMMENDED** We just LOVE Andres!! When we met with him for the first time and saw his work, we knew immediately that we wanted him to do our wedding. Andres completely captured my vision and I think he knew what I wanted even before I did! When I saw the ceremony setup I was just speechless! The flowers and dcor for the ballroom for the reception room left me speechless. During my wedding, everyone kept asking me who did the flowers. Andres is a true artist and really loves what he does and it shows through in his work. His work will leave you breathless. But dont let that fool you; he is affordable and will work within your budget. It took us a while to find a florist (we met with about 10 others before we met with Andres), but we hit the jackpot with Andres! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an affordable florist for their wedding.

Betsy was absolutely wonderful!! She is so easy going and really puts you at ease. She knows her craft and it definitely shows in her work. During my trial, I brought her pictures of hair and make-up that I liked and she replicated it exactly. During my wedding, I decided I wanted a different color lipstick, and she was completely accommodating and patient with me until we found the color that I liked. My hair and makeup lasted throughout the whole night; I didnt even have to reapply my lipstick (though she provided me with a little pouch with everything I might need-so thoughtful!). Throughout the night, I kept receiving compliments about how gorgeous my hair and make-up looked. She also did the hair and makeup for my mom and BM and they were thrilled with the results. Betsy is the best hair and make-up person out there and I will definitely be using her if I ever need my hair and make-up done professionally again. I would highly recommend her to any bride for their wedding. You will be so ecstatic with the results!

I am so happy with the photos that Brian took of both our engagement and wedding. He guided us through each and made us feel relaxed. He is extremely professional and punctual (very important to me). We are thrilled with our pictures and our photo album. I cant stop looking at it! Highly recommended!
