Branching Out Cakes
Jill was our favorite vendor. The cakes are perhaps more expensive then others ($5/pp), but she was so creative and accommodating that it was absolutely worth it. We had her make small cakes for the centerpieces of half of our tables, which turned out to be beautiful and delicious. Also, she made our yummy favors golden gate bridge cookies.

Jen is a dance instructor in the bay area. She does lessons at UCSF and in GG Park on the weekends. We did a 1-hour private lesson in her apartment for $50, which was fine. She showed us a few moves and slightly improved our form (maybe). Email me for more info.

We had music instructors from a local SF music school perform for the ceremony. One violin and one cello, for about $150. Sound-wise, I think they were great. There was a glitch during the ceremony when they didn't start playing at the start of the processional, and the first person that walked down the aisle walked in silence. Of course, I heard about this after the fact and was mortified, but apparently it was kind of amusing at the time and broke some tension. I am not sure if this was the musician's fault or the wedding coordinator (from CYC), but in the end, everything went smoothly.
