Center Club was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. My fiance was very particular about the venue and we looked at places from L.A. to San Diego. On a whim, we decided to look into Center Club after finding them in "Here Comes the Guide". Our mothers decided to see the venue with us and after taking one look decided unanimously it was the perfect place for our reception. The online photos do not do it justice; the fountains, patio and ballroom are gorgeous. Christine Petersen, the event director, was very kind and flexible to work with. Last minute additions or changes were never a problem for her. I read the previous review regarding a negative experience because they were not members of the club; however, this was not my experience at all, everyone at Center Club was very polite and respectful to us though we were not members.

Flower Allie did a beautiful job on our wedding! We were awed with how beautiful the reception centerpieces looked with the fresh blooms and glowing candles. Alison and Jenni were so nice to work with, they were able to take all of our conflicting ideas and join them together perfectly. Everyone told us how beautiful our ceremony and reception were and how everything was integrated so seamlessly and it was all because of Flower Allie. And they also did it so inexpensively, we had received a quote from another florist and Flower Allie's price was almost two thousand dollars less. We're so glad we chose Flower Allie, they made our wedding more beautiful than we could have hoped for.

Katie did a beautiful job on both my makeup and my bridal party's. I was worried the makeup would look heavy or unnatural, but Katie knew exactly what she was doing and I looked like myself but much more beautiful! My maid-of-honor was so impressed with her work she wants to book Katie for her own wedding later this year. Katie was very professional during my makeup trial and wedding day. I had heard horror stories from friends about makeup artists canceling last minute on their wedding day, but after meeting Katie for my makeup trial I knew I could depend on her. She even managed to fit in hair and makeup for an extra person with only one week's notice! Thank you, Katie, for being so sweet and accommodating!

We found Linda through Project Wedding and are so glad we hired her! We were amazed with how organized she is. Linda did a great job keeping us on schedule both during the days leading up to the wedding and during the reception itself. We are especially thankful of how helpful she was during the reception, she was always nearby to answer questions and remind us of upcoming activities on our planned timeline. We had so many questions that we felt bad asking Linda, but she was always so polite and gave us lots of suggestions along the way that were so helpful. Everyone told us that they loved our wedding and it was due to Linda. She showed up five hours early at the site of our reception to coordinate everything with our vendors (in addition to calling them all before hand). The only regret we have is only hiring her for the month of planning, if we had hired her earlier we would have saved ourselves tons of stress.We were lucky to have Linda as our wedding coordinator and couldn't be more thankful.
