Jackie's Cake Creations

We really liked our cake from Jakqui. She recreated a doodle of mine right on the cake, which I thought was really cool. She also stepped up and did a layer in a special flavor per my request (dark chocolate/grand marnier!) which was great. Really moist, yummy cake! Definitely recommend her work!

If I could give 'em 10 stars, I would... ================================================ WE GOT THE BEST PHOTOS!!! Gotta give 'em props ================================================ I have yet to write my full wedding round-up (wonder if I'll ever Actually do it) but I feel compelled to at least write a quickie post regarding our how incredibly ELATED we are with the work our photographers, Next Exit Photography. This L.A.-based (but I know they travel) couple was our first choice, and we're SO glad we decided to follow our gut & hire them. Indeed, they were the only photographers we met with - 30 minutes with Cat and Adi and we just knew that no one else would do. Their easy humor and attention to our needs (including running interference for me w/a relative I didn't exactly want to see that day) made them a no-brainer, and now that we've seen our photos, we are absolutely bowled over and are telling anyone who'll listen - engaged or not - that they should turn to Next Exit for any of their photography needs. Their creativity and relaxed energy really shines through in our fun, non-traditional (and yet somehow timeless) photos. They put us and our guests completely at ease, and were totally non-intrusive the entire day. It's crazy - we were going through our proofs (which we got pretty quickly!) and we didn't remember 1/2 of the photos being taken which is, I think, the mark of a good wedding photographer - they flew under the radar, but were present for all these great moments! Check out their blog post about us which includes 27 of our photos. If you'd like to see more of our shots (which are hilarious, beautiful, etc), send me a message and I'll send you the link to our full gallery. Considering they're our most tangible reminder of our wedding (DON'T SKIMP!!!), we couldn't be happier with our photos. And I can't lie - it's awesome to keep getting emails from our friends and family telling us they're the best wedding photos they've ever seen! Cheers, Gina

We were so thrilled to find the L.A. Equestrian Center. Their "Equestrian Room" and its adjacent garden proved to be the perfect ceremony/reception site one-two punch. The staff was so incredibly gracious, the food was excellent (despite it being just okay when we went for our tasting. phew!). The room decor was classy and the ceremony area was just gorgeous. Highly recommended!
