Working with Rosebud's was a great experience! I had a very specific and intricate cake design in mind and went to countless bakeries for tastings. Rosebud's understood exactly what I wanted and the cake was truly amazing! It was beautiful and so delicious! Many guests commented on the fact that it was the best wedding cake they had ever tasted. They were easy to work with and did a fabulous job. I will definitely go back to Rosebud's for any cakes I need in the future.

I booked my wedding on May 10th, which was the day before Mother's Day. At the time of booking, I didn't realize that Mother's Day weekend was the second most expensive time of year to buy flowers. I went to Kerim and had very little knowledge of flowers or what I wanted. I showed him about 20 pictures of 20 very different centerpieces, bouquets, and accent flowers. Kerim got a feel for me and my style and came up with the perfect arrangement of centerpieces and bouquets without me even telling him exactly what I wanted! I was amazed with the sample centerpiece because it was perfect and I didn't want to change a thing! It was absolutely gorgeous!!! Kerim was friendly and easy to work with throughout the process and the price was extremely reasonable (especially for the weekend I chose). He was punctual on the day of my wedding and everyone was so impressed with the flowers. He did a fabulous job and I would strongly recommend him to anyone who's interested in a reliable, creative, intuitive and talented florist.

We used Shanghai Red's for our rehearsal dinner and loved it! After looking at many locations in Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica and Malibu we decided on Shanghai Red's because of its exceptional food, ambiance, views and reasonable prices. The customer service was also fabulous. The event was held in a banquet room with huge windows that overlooked the Marina. There is a huge deck behind the restaurant that can also be the event site if the weather permits. The food was delicious and everything ran so smoothly thanks to Chantira (the coordinator from the restaurant). There is a beautiful walkway/bridge in the front of the restaurant with a koi pond running underneath, which was perfect for pictures. My husband and I love this restaurant and will continue to go back and strongly recommend it for rehearsal dinners or small weddings.
