Elaine is the best!! She was incredibly professional, punctual and I loved her work. She really listens to what kind of style you are looking for and gives you just that (for me, it was a more natural, not too made-up look). She is also very flexible. When my mother decided at the last minute that she too wanted her hair done the morning of the wedding, Elaine said "no problem" and squeezed her in. The trial with Elaine was also really helpful in deciding to go with her. She spends the same amount of time as the day of the wedding during the trial and takes numerous digital photos at the end with a professional camera, a back drop and in indoor and outdoor lighting to you can really see if you like the make-up. She has a great selection of tiaras and veils that you can borrow with a deposit (returned when you return tiara/veil), which is a great way to save money. I couldn't disagree more with tc14377's review. I booked Elaine ~3 weeks before my wedding and even told her how desperate I was, as my make-up artist backed out at the last minute. Elaine not only quoted me the same prices in person as in her e-mails, she even gave me a discount because my wedding was on a Friday (also the reason I was able to book her at the last minute as her weekends are usually completely booked months in advance). In sum, go with Elaine and book early! You won't regret it.

Excellent! In addition to delicious cakes, the manager is super-helpful. When he found out our reception would take place outside, he recommended that we do a frozen display cake of just cake and whipped creme and serve from a sheet cake kept inside. Good thing, because temps reached 90 degrees the day of our wedding but the frozen cake held up and looked beautiful while we received many compliments on the strawberry and creme cake that was served. They have >15 years of experience and it shows. Highly recommended.

Scott was amazing!! He was a fantastic MC and coordinated my entire reception, from grand entrance to last dance, smoothly. Before the wedding, he was willing to spend as much time as we needed on the phone and in person to make sure he understood what we wanted for our reception. During the reception his music selection for the evening was exactly as discussed. He went above and beyond to make the evening was fun for everyone, without doing any gimicky talk-show host antics. He's incredibly professional and we received many compliments. Highly, highly recommended!

City of Commerce Flowers is awesome! They are incredibly affordable for the beautiful work that they do. And just as important, their customer service is amazing. Eddie is super-nice and really helpful in helping to design the right look for centerpieces and bouquets. He is also great at helping you stay within your budget. After he drew up an estimate for my wedding, we realized that we were over my budget. Rather than scrap any part of the plan, he just modified various items to make them slightly cheaper and ended up being well-within my budget with arrangements that I found to be incredible. Paying with cash/check also saved us some. His delivery people were all really nice, prompt and professional. All the personal flowers (bouquets and boutonnires) were promptly delivered hours before the ceremony for pre-ceremony photos and to make sure we had enough time in case we needed more or anything needed to be altered. Overall, the arrangements and personal flowers were more amazing than I thought possible given the budgetary constraints we had and their professionalism exceeded all my expectations. Highly, highly recommend them!!
