I DIYed my invitation, but I use only the folded cards & double sided tape from Paper Source. All I had to do was tape the backings and wrap the ribbon around the cards. The tape held the ribbon really well. Paper Source has a lot of neat paper & stuff and if you have a very creative mind this place is for you.

Pix of Life Photography
We booked Pix of Life right when they were starting up in their business. They have good ideas and a great eye for photography, the best decision of our lives. They photographered our engagement & wedding day and they took really great pictures. They were fun to work with and they were really professional. We were very happy with our pictures and we couldn't appreciated them more for they're hard work on giving us memorable pictures. They made us feel really comfortable and didn't pressure us to do anything we didn't feel like doing. With our chaotic wedding and large guest list, they also were able to get so many great pictures with our families. We never encountered any problems with them, we had a question, they had an answer for us right away. They are truly devoted to their customers We're so GLAD we booked them, we couldn't ask for anyone better. They're awesome, we highly recommend them! Check out our e-session, wedding gallery & slideshow http://www.pixoflife.com/blog/2007_05_01_archive.html#7212021009852714925 http://www.pixoflife.com/wedding08/index.html http://www.pixoflife.com/shows/CA-show/

DJ Music Unlimited
A+ We booked Robert for our wedding and he had our guest dancing all night long. He's a really great guy and very easy going. DH liked him from the get go. We got along great and he was always available when needed. We gave him a list of Italian songs and he mixed them very well. Everyone enjoyed his music. Robert is so darn good that he even had DH dancing, which is good because he doesn't dance. We highly recommend Robert, he has a very good selection in music. Robert is super cool!!

A+ This bakery I've been going for years. My family has always gotten cakes for every occasion from them. They're super nice and they have the best tasting cake and not to mention afforable. We gave them a picture of a cake we saw and liked and they had no problem decorating one for us. Our guests enjoyed every bit of our wedding cake and let me tell you it was gone!! We were glad we ordered an extra sheet because if we hadn't, we probably wouldn't have our top layer in our freezer. We highly recommend them for anyone who is looking for a good tasting and afforable cake.

A+ I purchased my wedding dress through Minguita's and I have nothing but good things to say. I went to several bridal shops and not one made me feel like I was welcomed like Minguita's. I knew what kind of dress I wanted and they were very helpful. I didn't feel pressured by them to pick just any dress like other bridal shops I went to. My dress arrived as promised for 1st fitting and for pick up. I was glad I didn't need any alterations so the wait wasn't long, just a week I had to wait to bring my dress home.

F From all my vendor this one turned out to be bad. I went to Aria's because I heard so much postive feedback. It started well and they even helped with a couple of dress for my MOH in NY with their try-on program. All my girls including myself went to try on dresses and they all fitted good and we went with the sizes they tried on. When they recieved their dresses, it didn't fit. The dresses were all cut too small. One of my niece who is a plus size was ordered in the wrong size. The designer agreed to redo the dresses a size bigger, but the dresses were still slightly tight. For the plus size dress he was going to just redo the bottom portion of her dress to flow better...well he didn't. Because it was less than 2 weeks away for my wedding the girls watched their diets until then. One of my BM's dresses had the zipper put on wrong and we couldn't zip her up. My MOH barely fit and for the plus size dress, we had it custom made to her fit. The owner of Aria's did however sold me enough material and lining to make her dress.

Casa Italiana Banquet Hall
A+ This hall was renovated a couple of years. It has a very ancient feeling with roman columns in the middle and paintings of popular places in Italy. The hall overall is very beautiful once decorated. It has 2 bars, usually one used as an espresso/cappuccino bar. The food is fulfilling and the service is good. The hall only provides an Italian menu at a very good price. There's also a large stage to accommodate any size entertainment. This hall has been part of DH's family for serveral years. They've held many family functions including a few of his sibling's weddings. What better way to keep the Italian tradition by having our wedding there too.
