Mccann florist
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Marcia is amazing- she is a wonderful person to work with and her flowers are so beautiful. I did a lot of research and shopped around for a florist whose work was excellent and very affordable-and she was the exactly what I was looking for. She translated everything that I wanted into really spectacular flowers. She also did my huppa exactly as I wanted it. She was so easy to work with-the whole experience was a pleasure and I highly recommend her. My one upset with the flowers is that I really have a thing about white flowers in the bouqet looking yellow against a white wedding dress, so I had spoken to her about this and send a swatch of my diamond white wedding dress fabric so she could match it and ensure white rather than cream /yellow. Unfortunately this didn't go as planned and although the bouqet was pretty it wasn't the color I wanted and I was pretty upset about it-having pre-empted the situation and really tried to avoid it. Other than that I can not say enough about how satisfied and happy I was (this is a 4 1/2 star rating!)

La Folia Chamber Ensemble
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Jerry and La Folia did our ceremony and cocktail hour music. We chose the duet-classical guitar and violin. The sound was gorgeous and was very affordable. He was wonderful to work with and very easy to get in touch with. There was a piece of music I was really set on walking to and after we went back and forth and I sent him the snippet I had-he managed to find the whole piece and was able to play it for me. I found him to be great vendor and very accomodating. I totally recommend him for any function!

Lighten Up Inc.
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Nathan and his team are true proffesionals and I was thrilled with the lighting for my event. It was an outside wedding and we needed a lot of stuff to create a mood (and so people weren't eating in the dark!)From the pinspots and italian stringer lights to the custom logo on the dancefloor(so pretty and OTT) it was all beautiful. I never heard the generator that we required and there were no issues at all. And he emailed us afterwards to ask if everything was exactly as we wished and any suggestins to improve(i had none!) and I think this is an exceptional thing to do but would expect nothing less from such a great team.I will say that this is an expensive service and even with the discount he was so kind to have given us it was still pricey-but then you get a real quality and you know it will be amazing!

custom | made productions of beverly hills
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
VIP is run by Ari, who is a brilliant videographer and an exceptionally nice guy. He used to work for the Amazing Race and his talent and experience are evident in everything he does. We are thrilled with our video and initially didn't regard a wedding video as something important, but after seeing Ari's work and our finished product we are amazed that a wedding video could be such a work of art. We couldn't be happier. His work is clean, innovative and excellently edited. Wow-I could go on and on. Needless to say-you won't be dissapointed!

I had a really bad experience with this store and as a result almost didn't have a dress for my wedding. I was measured to fit into a particular size, asked the person helping me if she thought I could exercise and fit into a smaller size. She said she thought I could and so we ordered a smaller size(2 sizes smaller!!!) I had no idea that you NEVER order a dress smaller, you always take it in if you need to.Needless to say, I didn't get into the size that was ordered and I was really upset that she never took responsibility for poor advice(or No advice) It was not pointed out that I had signed paperwork that stipulated the store takes no responsibility for the size that gets ordered-It was all very crazy and exciting and I stupidly didn't read through what I signed, but it was also never verbally pointed out. The whole experience was so stressful and distressing, and I was made to feel like it was my fault-for choosing the wrong size, and also for not being able to lose the weight. It really tainted my dress experience, so be careful when working with this store-and NEVER go smaller on a dress. I learned the hard way, and with no guidance from the person I trusted at the store.
