Si Arima Alterations
Si is very busy and with good reason. Going off rave reviews on yelp and PW, I called months in advance to get my fittings squeezed into her busy schedule. Si was so helpful and patient with everything and altered my dress to perfection. She took in my all chantilly lace Monique Lhuillier mermaid gown in from a size 4 to a street size 0 and to hug my non-existent hips. I was somewhat worried to entrust anyone to perform this, but I was amazed with the final results. I highly recommend her and can safely say that you are in good hands with Si.

Ink Fancy Letterpress
I don't recall the steps on how I stumbled on inkfancy's webpage, but I am so glad I did. Initially I sent an inquiry and then received a sample suite and was really impressed with the paper quality, the deep impression of the letter press, and the fun designs. I also found the price really reasonable for custom design letterpress. Tere took our ideas and designed a few mockups. She really tied in everything I was looking for into our design and I loved it. We then went back and forth until we refined everything. I must say that I was in love with everything and Tere was so patient with me and a pleasure to work with. Also, all of our communication was via email, which worked out so conveniently for me. I highly recommend Tere!

We tasted with 3 designers and I am so glad that we booked with Stephanie. Not only were the cakes sooo yummy and her portfolio impressive, but Stephanie showed a genuine excitement and interest in our wedding that really put me at ease. Throughout the process, she kept an open communication and even followed up with us after the wedding. She truly was a pleasure to work with. With all the hustle and bustle of the wedding day, I couldn't help gazing at our cake. The design, the display, it was fabulous. Stephanie executed my vision perfectly tying in with the theme, color and style of our day. Even more, the cake was beyond delicious. I am a big sweets person and I have high standards and I must say that it was one of the best cakes I have ever tasted. I am in love with the macadamia nut flavor.

Styles by Ann, Makeup Artist and Hairstylist
Ann was a real pleasure to work with. For my wedding, Ann did my hair, my moms hair and makeup and along with her assistant, did the BMs hair. We were all very happy with how we looked. I knew through meeting Ann twice before for trials that she knew what she was doing and that my bridal party and I would be in good hands. Also, being asian, I have had a lot of unhappy experiences/encounters with stylists not knowing how to do asian h&mu properly. But Ann really nails it down so I booked her right away after my first trial and so glad I did. She tells you honestly what will work, what wont, what will look good and not so good. She was very patient helping me finalize a style for the day of and I also appreciate her responsive nature, which I cant say for some of the other vendors Ive contacted in the industry. If you are looking for someone that is honest, experienced, knowledgeable and in tune with the latest looks/styles, I highly suggest contacting Ann.
