Kate was a gem! Honestly i have always been a little uneasy about florists and weddings since 90% of the weddings i have been to the FLORIST DIDNT SHOW. : ( So when about 2 months before our wedding we found out our previously booked florist cancelled us (without telling us) I panicked about finding a florist soooo late in the game. Luckily Kate came to our rescue, she completely put me at ease! We wanted something different and completely deconstructed and Kate new exactly what we were looking for! I was in awe of our flowers, everything was perfect! Not only that, Kate added some additional blooms to some cocktail tables : ) which was soooo unbelieveably sweet of her! She is amazing at what she does,all night we heard that the flowers looked like something from Martha Stewart Weddings! Thank you Kate : ) you made our wedding lovely- I dont have all the pics yet, but if you want to see some just email me.

Amy at Vanilla Bake Shop is amazing! Honestly me and the hubs arent huge cake people so we opted for cupcake babies and dessert shots! From our tasting we were hooked on VBS- it was A-MAZ-ING & truly delicious desserts!!!!!! And Amy also displayed everything soooo beautiful, i was in awe of our dessert table, it was everything we hoped for. We didnt want the basic "cupcakes but stacked like a cake look" so Amy had acrylic pieces for the dessert shots, and then different size cake plates for the cupcake babies! Perfection! I think people complimented me every 20 mins about our dessert bar : ) it was my favorite thing of the wedding!!!! I just couldnt stop staring at the table : ) We cannot wait to come back to Vanilla Bake shop every year for our anniversary! : )

I truly dont know where to begin. Paola is made for Wedding Coordinating. I found her about 5 months before my wedding and booked her right away, we hired her for DOC but i truly NEVER felt like she was a day of coordinator, she was our WHOLE WEDDING COORDINATOR. She went above and beyond with everything to ensure that the day was perfect, she was always there to solve any problem that ever came up: ) I am a huge control freak, not to mention a perfectionist, so when i found someone who was as crazy about detail as i am I was escatic. our wedding wouldnt have been anything without Paola, she truly was amazing, and completely put me at ease! Also we had a hard time finding the right color and texture linens, then Paola came to the rescue and spent all day hunting down a company that carried them, even driving to OC from LA just to SEE the linens in person to make sure the color was PERFECT (OMFG- SHE IS A-MAZ-ING). Also i truly dont think Paola ever took longer than 2 hours to email me back... it was unbelieveable, she really just made my life soooo much easier wedding planning. I could never imagine having a wedding without her, also she was super patience and delt with my 50 plus DIY projects that i wanted set up the Day of the wedding! : ) I am the 1st of my friends to get married, but they all are definetly going to snatch her up for their weddings next year : ) so be prepared Just Chic Events is in high demand - PAOLA IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

Nathaniel was amazing from our very first meeting : ) We were having a hard time finding a caterer who would just provide the sides and appetizers for our wedding since we had already booked the IN-N-OUT truck for the main course... but Nathaniel was all about it! They were able to blend perfectly with the fun feel we were going for! Salads, ahi tuna tar tar, French fry bar, grilled veggies, everything was perfect! As well as the presentation : ) , i am a firm believer in presentation and Nathaniel was completely Martha Stewart-esque with me about that! Needless to say our food stations were beautifully displayed! Nathaniel also handled our rentals through PICO RENTALS for us, which was a huge help! Me and the hubs are hoping to have a party for the when the hubs turns 30 : ) and you bet we will have CONTEMPORARY CATERING CATER! They truly customized the menu to us, which NO OTHER CATERER WOULD DO! And did i mention they were soooooo reasonable!!! : ) You def. would be disappointed with Contemporary!
