One thing about Camelot that we loved is that whenever you call, the person answering the phone is always so courteous and helpful, unlike another limo we had called where the person answering the phone sounded like we were wasting his time. Joe was really easy to work with. I like that they did not include gratuity automatically in their price. Our limo was fantastic - we booked the Cadillac Escalade. Our limo driver was very professional. He also arrived 30 minutes early and just waited until we were ready. At one point, my photographer was trying to capture a shot of me sitting in the limo, but the lighting wasn't good, so our driver went over and opened up the windows and the trunk to help out. He was courteous and we tip him more than the "standard" 15% because of that. We would highly recommend Camelot Limos.

Jade Asian Restaurant
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
As an Asian American, I wanted to have my wedding in a place where the food was good and the decor was modern. Jade Asian had both. I love the large windows which let in light during the day. At night, they dimmed the lights for a nice ambiance. Peter How was extremely easy to work with (and I spoke to him in mostly English - although of course my parents and in-laws spoke to him and the staff in Chinese). He responds quickly to emails and even called me right back after I sent one out. We had about 260 guests who fit inside comfortably. The dance floor was a good size. There's a small but convenient dressing room near the head tables that has its own bathroom. They offered to include a free cake (but we had our own from somewhere else). We had an open bar which was fantastic. The Maitre D was really good in bringing us around from table to table for the toasts in a timely fashion. The food was good and customizeable. I would definitely recommend Jade Asian for a Chinese wedding banquet.

KEY MUSIC GROUP
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Amable kept everyone dancing at our wedding! At one point, we requested some softer music as we went around toasting each table (as is traditional for a Chinese wedding) which he did, but we were told some of the guests were asking when they could get back on the dance floor again! We had plenty of people requesting his information. He was both our DJ and MC and helped us make a grand entrance. He is talented and professional. Although we didn't end up using him for lighting, you can tell he really has an eye for designing a space. I highly recommend Key Music Group.

Reiko Utsugi
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Reiko and her assistant Erica did a wonderful job on my wedding. I had ideas of how I thought I wanted my hair, but at my trial, after showing her what my dress and veil looked like, she came up with the perfect hairstyle. My mom looked amazing and my bridesmaids came out so fresh looking and beautiful. Reiko arrived right on time to my hotel the morning of the wedding and finished on time. She is a lovely person and I highly recommend her.

Sachi is amazing! A friend of mine used him for her wedding and when I asked to look at her album, I was absolutely floored. I'm from NY and drove "all the way" to NJ to meet him. From the moment I met him, he was friendly, engaging, professional, and above all, really really knows what he's doing, and his photos reflect that. The package he offers is unbeatable - I can say that because since photography was important to us, we interviewed quite a few vendors and unanimously agreed that Sachi was the best. My mom said of one of the first photos he sent us after the wedding that that one photo was worth more than whatever we might have paid him. I can't highly recommend Sachi enough. Thanks so much!

Our wedding cake was not only beautiful (my fiancé mistook the orchids for real flowers), but it was delicious! The cake was moist and not too sweet which was what we were looking for. We went with the ube (purple yam) which was such a pretty lavender color and paired it with vanilla buttercream. Both were phenomenal. The best part was not needing to choose between fondant or buttercream, because Judy does both! She couples the buttercream underneath the fondant. She is great to work with and I highly recommend her!
