I'm so glad I found Leslie to take care of our paper products. We've been getting nothing but compliments on our save-the-dates and invites from our guests. And of course I adore them, since Leslie took the time to tailor the designs to fit our style. It was such a fun process! The best part is...I paid a fraction of the price I would have paid anywhere else, including if I DIYed it myself!! I could not have asked for a sweeter deal and a better experience working with Leslie. I'd definitely recommend Leslie to anyone and everyone!!

Our recent engagement shoot with Tammy and Mark was awesome! They are the easiest people to work with and really guided us to being comfortable in front of the camera. I love that they are a team of talented photographers whose individual style and perspective meshes together to give beautiful pictures from different angles. It takes away the worry from those of us who don't pose for a living but still want pretty pictures to show family and friends.

Giao Nguyen Makeup Artistry & Hair Design
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Yes, it's another glowing review for Giao. Why? Because she is simply great at what she does. I'm so glad I booked Giao for my wedding. She is attentive, detail-oriented, and very talented. At our trial, she took my inspiration pictures and a vague idea I had in my head of what I wanted and created a beautiful look. She even gave me tips on how to prep my stubbornly straight hair for the big day. On the big day, Giao showed up on time and ready to go. She did her magic on my mom first and my mom loved her hair and makeup! It was so heartwarming to see my mom pampered and happy. I loved the wedding look that Giao put together for me. It was just as I envisioned it at the trial, but somehow even better. My makeup stayed put all day and lasted through over 1000 photos. =) The icing on the cake with Giao is her super friendly and easy going attitude. When I was asking around for hair and makeup recommendations, a good friend warned me about snooty makeup artists like the one she regrettably hired. Well I did not have to worry about a vendor raining on my parade with Giao. She is very sweet and got along well with everyone, even my parents. I highly recommend Giao for any hair and makeup services! Oh, please don't think that booking Giao will break the budget because of her fabulous work. Her rates are very reasonable.

Booking with Dom for our videography was such a great idea! We didn't originally plan for video coverage in our wedding budget, but after getting some wise advice, I looked into an affordable videographer that doesn't compromise on quality. Dom has a lot of experience capturing weddings, as apparent by his large collection of wedding dvds (I would have probably spent hours browsing through them if my now husband wasn't with me). I love how involved he gets in the entire feel of the video footage. He looked for ways to make our video unique and true to our style as a couple, giving us options on various elements on design. It's those extra little touches that make your wedding video feel that much more special. Dom is super friendly and teamed up nicely with our photographers to capture the wedding. His flexibility and attitude really made him one of our favorite vendors. I highly recommend Dom and his work. His prices are more than reasonable for someone who is so experienced. I'd say that we splurged a little by booking a videographer (since we didn't originally include it in the budget), but booking Dom was definitely more of a save than a splurge.
