Knowledgeable staff and so friendly; not at all pushy or annoying which is why my I recommend so highly. My fiance designed my engagement ring here, and the quality/craftmanship/beauty is stunning. I get compliments constantly. Both wedding rings for fiance and myself purchased here as well and I couldn't be happier with the end result. Truly a perfect jewelry experience; THANK YOU! A++++

Cake looked amazing, and I am told it tasted delicious! In wedding craziness, I missed out on a piece :( Tastings I had previously were sooooo good (2 layers white cake with chocolate mousse and rasberry puree, 1 layer chocolate cake with fresh rasberries and rasberry creme). It was beautiful, I can fully vouch for that! Plus they delievered to Santa Barbara from Camarillo (super helpful)Grade: A

Shell is beyond great. She took me on with less than a month to go, since I had to terminate the contract I had with my previous florist. Shell rocked out my wedding with ingenious and unique flower combinations (especially impressive since she had less than 4 weeks to pull it off). I could not be more pleased or happy with the way my flowers turned out. Above all, she was a dream vendor by promptly returning calls and keeping open communication at all times. I whole-heartedly recommend Shell to all!! Grade: A+

Rich was a wonderful officiant. He personalized a ceremony ideal for my husband and I, and he took care of all marriage license paperwork. Rich was the ultimate professional and a true pleasure to work with. We were very fortunate to have him a part of our wedding day. Grade: A

I had a perfect wedding experience at the Canary. Alison was my contact, and she totally took care of me. The food was great, the staff was friendly and attentive and the day went off without a hitch. A wonderful choice if you are looking for a beach wedding in a stunning location, without having to deal with sand and the public eye. The rooftop deck is breathtaking (you can see the ocean, the mountains, downtown Santa Barbara), and the hotel interior is decorated with a upscale/Meditteranean vibe). I even prefer Canary to their sister property, Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica. I would strongly encourage anyone to seek out getting married at the Canary. Grade: A

I used AMS out of Santa Barbara, and DJ Saul was AWESOME!!! Saul kept the party going at all times. He honored all song requests and was the perfect wedding MC (not too loud and cheesy). AMS was a wonderful company to work with, I highly recommend. Grade: A

Sara is soooooooo great! I didn't technically use Sara for my wedding stationary (had I known of her mad skillz ahead of time, I certainly would have), but she did create custom Christmas cards for my Husband and I, in our wedding clothing. Wearing Santa hats. And she captured our look adorably. Sara was lightening quick responding to all emails. She was friendly, inventive, and and an overall joy to work with. Could not be possibly be happier with the end result. Quality is beautiful and so unique. I hope to use Sara for ALL future stationary needs. Thank you, Sara! :)

Chantilly Bridal and Mr Tux
 
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
A hard review for me to write. Chantilly was super helpful with 90% of my dress-buying experience. I live in San Jose, so they opened up shop early for me on weekends when I was available for fittings and let me do alterations on weekends which is normally not allowed. Sales ladies were very friendly. However, during my final fitting, my dress was cut too short and I had to find new shoes a day before my wedding. This was incredibly frustrating and upsetting. My dress ended up being beautiful, but the stress leading up to it was very unfortunate. The man that runs the adjacent tux shop is incredibly rude, my father had to deal with him and he was horrible (gave my dad a tux when we specified we needed a black suit). The only way to get thru to that guy is to be forceful, which is a shame. Grades: Dress shop/sales: B-, Alterations/tux shop: F

Jeff Newsom was my favorite wedding vendor. His skills and website speak for him. Jeff is a wonderful/mellow/fantastic human which makes everyone feel great infront of the camera (which is not easy to do). I enthusiastically recommend Jeff to all engaged couples. His style is more art than pose-y tired wedding photos. Such a find, I could go on and on. Yay Jeff Newsom! Grade: A+++

Danielle delivers truly amazing pictures. She just did my TTD shoot, and the proofs are fabulous! Danielle was great to work with because during the shoot, she offered fantastic direction (which I needed), and I ended up with beautiful results. I definitely plan to order a book of the images. So far, so fantastic!
