I loved having my wedding at Seven-Degrees! It was definitely a dream come true to have it at such a beautiful and amazing venue! We wanted something different from the usual hotel or restaurant venue and Seven-Degrees could not be beat! I will have to warn you that it is an expensive venue and everything costs extra! So make sure to be very specific when requesting information or a quote because any changes or extras will cost you!! That said, Alyssa was very nice to work with and I do recommend having a wedding here!!!

Angelina did my makeup and hair and the outcome was AMAZING!!! It was dramatic and beautiful just the way I wanted it! All the bridesmaids also got their makeup and hair done by the All Made Up team and everyone was in love with the way they looked!!! At the last minute I decided that I wanted her to return for a touch up before the ceremony and she cleared her schedule to accommodate me without hesitation. All of my guests and friends could not stop complimenting me on the way I looked! The makeup and hair was very very expensive but completely worth the splurge!

Cake Box
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My mother in law found The Cake Box after calling around and they were priced well below many other cake shops. At first I was skeptical of the low price but once I met with the super nice owner tried the sample cake (thats right I was given an entire sample cake to take home!!! one half was one flavor and the other half was another!!! It was soo delish!) my fears were put aside!!! I didn't get to try the cake on my wedding day but it was beautiful and most of the guests said it tasted good, although some said it was a little dry. Overall, I think they were a good deal and good find!!

Candi was AMAZING!!! I brought a picture of one of her previous bride’s veil I found on Project Wedding and said I want the exact same thing! She told me it was antique chantilly lace and when she gave me the quote, the price was soo low, I thought that was just quoting the deposit fee, not the full price of the veil!!! Her prices cannot be beat! She will make you the most amazing custom veil of your dreams!!!

Flower Allie was one of my absolute favorite vendors!!! She was simply AMAZING!!! I got a quote from my wedding venue and Allison was able to beat it and include more flowers! She has amazing vision and a very modern style and understood exactly what I was looking for! I showed her some vases I bought to use as bridesmaid bouquet holders for the reception and she said she had better vases and GAVE them to me, for free!!!! That just showed she was willing to go above and beyond to please her brides!

My reception flowers were amazing! They took my breath away and still to this day I receive compliments on how beautiful and lavish the head table’s “tablescape” was!!! Everything was just perfect and way beyond my expectations!

I never had any problems getting a hold of her… if she didn’t call me back, I would just call her again, no big deal! If you are looking for an amazing florist willing to work within your budget, look no further!!!

Pristine Videos delivered a good quality product for the price. I just wanted something simple to document the wedding and they made a very beautiful and artistic video!!! The price was the main reason I choose them and I'm glad I did!!

Jack was a really nice guy to work with and his price cannot be beat!!! That said, I think I would like to have been a little more specific with him as he was playing music that I didn't like. I wanted more of an elegant feel to the reception and had also given him a few Vietnamese CDs to play (per my parents request) and he only played like 5 of those songs all evening and started to play a few cheesy ones like "freak out" when we were still visiting tables during the reception. He is a good find, just make sure to be very specific if you are going for more of an elegant subdued mood. I have no doubt he would be a great "party mood" DJ!!!

Once again, congrats with your wedding and thank you for having us part of your beautiful date.

I recall the music situation...That night I played multiples instrumental Vietnamese music given to me by you on the date of the wedding. The dilemma, 1/2 your guests were Non-Asian. more of than 3 - 4 of them came up to me and requested something more upbeat and disco era....

It is a catch 22, you want to please the bride and on the same token, you also want to please your guests...

Best wishes..

wedding alterations by Mahtab
 
( 0.0 / 5.0 )
I feel really bad about writing a bad review about Mahtab, but my wedding alterations with her were a nightmare!!! I bought my dress from a Monique Lhullier sample sale and I had a pick up skirt with a few of the "gathers" that had come undone. I had asked her to please look at the skirt as you can see where the stitching was missing from sew marks and to use those as guides when fixing the gathers in the skirt. She did not do this at all! She had just sewn random gathers and it looked so strange to me at the fitting but she convinced me that it was the way the skirt was and that is how it was "suppose" to look and that was the best she could do and that it was a difficult dress to work with. She also told me that since my skirt was pure silk, it is naturally wrinkled and there was nothing she could do about it.

Confused I went home and took a better look at the dress. I then realized that she didn't even look at the sew marks on the skirt and her sewing was so sloppy and unattractive, the stitches looked like little white spiders on my skirt!!! In tears I called my MOH and she rushed over with a roll of thread and a needle and together we sewed 9 gathers to make it look normal! How could a professional seamstress miss so much on a dress? It should have been a simple alteration with "follow the dot" instructions but she obviously did not put much effort or attention to detail into it.

Driving 1.5 hours from Los Angeles all the way to her home in Orange County for a horrible job on alterations was a complete waste of time and money! Do not go to her! And if you do, make sure you take a really good look at the finished alterations before you pay her!!!
