Grand Engagements
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Hiring Grand Engagements was one of the best decisions I ever made, period. I hired her within five minutes of meeting her and never looked back. Gloria is one of the most amazing people I have ever met and feel honored that we were able to work with her and her team. Our wedding went like clockwork thanks to her; I don't even want to think about what it would have been like without her! She made the day feel like a dream, you know...the kind where everything goes right, you feel and look beautiful and everything falls into place. Her team is organized, on top of everything, and she always is watching out for you. Really, what more could you ask for?

Her style is gorgeous but she is flexible too and really good at seeing different visions of different people; and then helping to execute them. She is wonderful at managing crazy families, their needs, and making sure that everyone stays on track! Definitely needed for any wedding.

I cannot reommend Grand Engagements enough!!

Megan of Honey and Poppies will blow you away with her floral artistry, she definitely did that to us. Just the inspiration board she provided made me cry tears of joy and then the mock up a year later did the same thing. Then comes the wedding. The flowers were over the top gorgeous and they were everywhere. On top of everything the styling of each centerpiece by her was exactly what we wanted to a T but even more than I ever expected. Even the bouquets and bouts were over the top but so elegant that it makes you stop dead in your tracks.

Our guests could not stop talking about the flowers and couldn't stop smelling them either. Mmmmm...fresh flowers. Oh and BTW, her prices were more reasonable than any other vendor in Orange County and she is as sweet as candy.

Martha Stewart eat your heart out. I heart Honey and Poppies.

Kacee and her team's talent is off the charts. Not only is she funny, personable, reliable, and super sweet but oh yeah - she makes you look and feel like a supermodel.

I hired Kacee based on a recommendation from my wedding planner (Grand Engagements) and hired her within five minutes of being on the phone with her. Everything just clicked and this was prior to the trial.

At the trial run I showed up with not a single idea of what I wanted and after a short conversation she nailed it on the first try. AMAZING!!!!

On the day of the wedding we showed up late but once we got there all stress melted away and her team was the most efficient and lovely group I have ever met. Up-do's, beautiful waves and curls, amazing name it, they did it and finished on-time with 30 minutes to spare. Now that, my fellow brides, is no small feat.

I don't wear a lot of make up to begin with so I was worried I would look crazy but it was quite the opposite. It looked so beautiful as did the make up and hair on my bridesmaids and my mom. We received so many compliments on it that night it was overwhelming. I have never felt better about myself than I did that night.

I now find myself looking for another event that I hire her for. Kacee, thank you for everything.

Visions Entertainment is a home run. We hired them based on a recommendation from our venue and we couldn't have hired a better DJ.

His professionalism, flexibility, fun personality, and event timelines knowledge cannot be beat. Everyone at our wedding had a good time. He knows how to get people on the dance floor and what music to play. His team is easy to work with, really knowledgeable, and tons of fun. For those at our wedding that wanted to dance...they were on the dance floor all night and everyone loved the music. He played the perfect mix of what we wanted with classics mixed in.

If you go with Visions Entertaiment I stronly, strongly recommend getting lighting. Yeah, you see it in videos on blogs and it looks nice blah blah blah but in person it takes your breath away and that ooohh aahhh factor should not be overlooked. Jason is a master of lighting. The lighting helped make the night what it was. Jason has a zillion different options and is truly a master of it. Everyone loved it and were oooohhhing and ahhhhing over it.
