Haute Bride
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I love my Haute Bride necklace and bracelet. We did have a small communication problem, but everything was handled very professionally and all worked out in the end. My only complaint is their hours make it difficult to get into the salon the shop or pick up your order.

...And Something Blue is a very good, super cute bridal salon with a good selection modern bridesmaids dresses. This is a great place to check out if you want to see multiple dresses from the same designer that can be in the same color. It is a little small, so I wouldn't recommend bringing your entire bridal party, but would be good for up to a group of 3. Lisa is very helpful and knowledgeable. She doesn't just toss you in, but offers her opinion and gives you options that she might not have available on the floor, but can be ordered. You feel like you get a very "custom experience" and not just rolling through the bridal factory. If I hadn't already purchased my bridesmaids dresses I would have likely worked with Lisa.

Maria and her crew were truly amazing. For my day of makeup she went above and beyond. I didn't think it was possible to improve on my trial, but she truly made my vision come to a reality. I can easily say that I have never felt more beautiful in my life. Aside from Maria and her team's amazing makeup skills she is a true professional. They all had such an happy attitude making the entire day positive and entertaining. Maria stayed with my through my entire portrait session to ensure that the entire bridal party looked their best for our memories. She made sure that every hair was in place, every thread was snipped, all lips were glossed. Aside from Maria's skills and day of service, she was a true professional from the first day of contact. All emails were answered quickly. All documents and reminders were sent in a timely manor. She was a true joy to work with. I feel any bride is lucky to book her.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jon and his team. They were so flexible on our actual wedding day. Due to weather or original lighting design had to reworked. Jon and his team went above and beyond to ensure that no flower, cake or corner was left unlit. We have a mixture of uplighting, chandeliers, gobos, and washes. They also handled all of our draping as well, giving our event a unified look. Prior to the big day Jon and his team were responsive and accommodating. Whether we were meeting for our site walk through, initial creative consultation, or just picking the right gobo they were beside us and responding to us the entire time. Lighting definitely helps set the mood on the big. Our reception would not have been the same without. I highly recommend working with Got Light?

Some of the best service I have received since getting engaged. I tried on dresses here with my 2 MOHs. They have a great selection of quality bridesmaids dresses by quality designers. I highly recommend visiting here if you are looking to have bridesmaids in various style or color dresses. I was really impresses with their ability to schedule appointments via email. A saving grace for some of us :). I agree with MsKittie that it is a little crammed, but since you are the only ones in the store it wasn't a problem for us. If you are going with a very large group it could get squishy. I highly recommend this store if you are looking for unique and modern dresses that your bridesmaids could wear again. Our dresses arrived early and were perfect! I can't wait to see my maids in them.

Bridal Galleria
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Wedding Dress Review: I was very hesitant about going here initially based on some bad reviews. This was the 4th bridal salon I visited and have loved every minute of my experience/experiences. Kim is my rock star. I would not have found my dress had she not recommended that I try it on. She also isn't fake and gives you constructive advice on the dresses. I really hate when bridal associates blow a bunch of smoke up your butt instead of being helpful. I went here for the Lazaro trunk show. I went alone, which made it very hard. They are open on Sundays when they have trunk shows so luckily I brought my mom back the next day and we purchased the dress. They were very patient with me as my mom made me try on the dress 4 or 5 times. They even took pictures and emailed them to me since I didn't have a camera. I had a mixed experience once my dress came in. Kim was again awesome, but another girl who helped me almost let me leave with my custom hem dress being too long. Thankfully, I went back and Kim corrected the situation. My dress was sent back to Lazaro and was completely remade. I did all my alterations through Bridal Galleria as well. I must say Carmen is amazing. We tweaked the dress 4 times to get it just right. She even adjusted the length on the sides of my dress, which involved moving up the trim and adjusting all of the embroidery. I agree the service can be hit or miss, but if you work with Kim you are guaranteed a great experience. Other notes: They carry most of the top designers and are consistently having trunk shows. I highly recommend frequenting their website for upcoming shows. They also validate which is always a God sent! Bridesmaids Dress Review: They really don't have the biggest selection. They do carry several designers, but I don't feel this is your strong point.

Larry Lynch and the Mob
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I cannot say enough about Larry Lynch and the mob. Their music is versatile and their sound is amazing. They brought an energy to the wedding that kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. The thing I liked most about Larry Lynch and the Mob is that they handled the music from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception. We had a classical guitar for the ceremony that continued into cocktail hour, then the full band for the reception. I loved having the mix of both male and female singers. We had light jazz for dining and then cranked it up to dance hits and current hits. Larry was one of the easiest vendors I worked with. They were energetic, professional and reliable. I couldn't have asked for more on my big day. My guests still talk about how awesome the band was.

Jennifer is an artist when it comes to flowers. I was the bride who knew NOTHING about flowers. I had a vision in my head that was pretty much described by "loose" and "organic". In my second meeting with Jennifer I walked in with flowers that I didn't know the names of and probably pointed to 10 completely different styles and said "I want that, and that, but not that." Jennifer was able to pull my vision described by words like "pretty" and "curly things" and "organic" out of my head and into beautiful floral arrangements. What most impressed me about Jennifer was she took all aspects of my weddings into consideration when planning my floral design. All of the colors popped beautifully with the setting, and while eclectic, flowed together perfectly. If you hire Jennifer you are not hiring a florist, you are hiring a floral artist.

Bear Flag Farm
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
bear Flag Farm is truly a magical place where priceless memories are made. I cannot put into words how grateful I am that Tina, her husband and their 2 dogs were willing to open their home to us. Throughout the entire process Tina was accommodating, professional and a true joy to work with. Even when it came down to potential rain for the first time during a wedding at the farm, Tina kept her cool, pulled strings and did whatever it took to make sure that our wedding met our expectations. Bear Flag Farm is a beautiful setting that offers a variety of wedding layouts, making each wedding that is held their truly unique. If you're looking for cookie cutter I suggest you look else where. Tina meticulously maintains her grounds so while it is a working farm it has the character and charm of the elegant French countryside. When I think back on my wedding the first thought I have and the one that warms my heart the most is of Bear Flag Farm. I feel any bride is lucky to be married here. Also, Tina is one of best and most customer service oriented vendors I worked with throughout my entire wedding.
