If I could give more than five stars, I would!! Ashleigh was a pro from the start. Her work is just incredible! She is really really talented! Once I saw her blog, I knew right away we wanted to have her shoot our wedding. She is energetic, confident and super friendly. We did some great engagment shots and got SUPER AMAZING wedding photos! She captured the big moments all the way down to the little details and small special moments between people. I highly recommend her to other brides and grooms! On top of all her talents, she is so open to answering any questions a bride may have about the big day, and has become a good friend! :D

Bluewater Grill
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The food was AMAZING! Very professional service too! Definitely the best food for the price. We were able to stay on budget and fed our guests the best.
Vida, the coordinator from Bluewater Grill was great! She had an amazing amount of knowlege about weddings and all the planning. She was incredibly patient with me, as I asked a million questions about the big day! We were able to rent the Avalon room, which has large windows overlooking the ocean. The decor at first may seem a bit dull, but we were able to decorate (within limits) and really make the place into a beautiful, bright reception!! Vida was also willing to help out with set up any way she could. It will take some foot work to decorate, but it was incredibly worth it. In the end we had a perfect reception that ended with a picture perfect sunset over the ocean.

City of Commerce Flowers
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Eddie from Commerce Flowers was the very very best!! He sat down with me and my family for over one hour just to go over every detail of my vision for flowers BEFORE I even decided to go with them. He also generously sent me home with TWO mock-up arrangements. He is super creative and professional, and really understood my vision with out pushing any new products. He worked with our budget and helped come up with legitimate ways to cut down on costs, but not on style or beauty. I really appreciated that!

What's even better is that the flowers looked EVEN better than the mock ups on the big day! He even went the extra length to beautifully decorate the long head table with petals and a gorgeous arrangement. The flowers came out picture perfect! I highly recommend this florist.

King's Hawaiian Bakery
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
By far the best tasting cake in the South Bay! They were very open to letting me combine their existing designs to make something truly unique and personal. They sent us home with genoursly large pieces of cake on our tasting, and even gave us more on our return visit! Best cake for your money. We got a small, two tiered cake, but also ordered a small sheet cake just in case. They delievered the cake on time and if looked perfect!

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Susie Chhuor and Team were amazing. They nailed the look of make-up and hair I wanted on the trial run. I knew I was in GREAT hands with Sunny from Susie Chhuor. On the big day, her and her team were super professional and calm in the midst of a tight time line. The whole team made everyone look fabulous! I felt like a movie star and was SUPER confident and ready for the big day!! I couldn't have asked for a better hair and make-up team for such an important day! :D HIghly recommended!
