Cherries
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Wow, I loved, loved, loved my flowers! Katherine at Cherries completely got my vision and carried it out incredibly. I worked with Katherine at my previous job and I just love her and her work. She also hung my lanterns on the dining patio.

The dresses were so darling! They looked adorable on the girls. They were fairly inexpensive as well. However the day of the wedding we had to hot glue gun the flowers back on my nieces dress because they kept falling off.

Dave is really thorough and professional. He has really helped us plan out the timeline for our wedding and has had some great suggestions. Sometimes I felt like it was a little hard for him to get off the wedding formula that he goes by, but his professionalism, organization and his great deejaying the day of our wedding totally out ways any of those issues. He was fantastic and I am very happy with the decision to have him as our DJ.

My initial experience was not so great. They are really close to the Harvest Inn and I liked the services that they offer that is why I booked with them. The group sales guy was really unresponsive. I was paying for 9 ppl. to get massages and he wouldnt respond to my e-mails or voicemails. I am pretty forgiving to because I work in events and I know how hard it is when you get busy, I just didn't feel I should have to wait a month or send 5 e-mails in order to get a written confirmation. The day of was nice. The girls and moms really enjoyed themselves and that was the point so I was happy. They are near a train track so be prepared to hear the wine train pass by a few times during a massage.

Brown Sugar
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I love brown sugar! It is by far the best spray tan I have ever had. It is really even, a really great shade (very natural you can see in my hair/make-up trial pictures) and my hands and feet are perfect. I have done mystic tan many times before and have always had a spot or two that I have to try hard to cover up because it came out too dark or light. This tan is perfectly even. I didn't use a spray tan for the day of the wedding. I developed a rash that broke out all over my back in the months leading up to the wedding. It looked like acne but wasn't. So I cut out all products including self tanners. I went for indoor tanning instead (I know very bad) and was really pleased with the results.

Paper Source - San Francisco Marina
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I think I could spend an entire week in paper source. I absolutely love it! I get so inspired to become a very crafty person whenever I enter the store. It is definitely on the pricey side.

Really, really easy to work with! They are also based in SF. I realized this when I paid $15 to have it shipped and then decided on a different shaped lantern. I brought them directly to the warehouse and avoided paying the shipping charges.

Really cool classy car. I had such a blast riding to the church with the girls in this car listening to classic music. We were in it such a short amount of time for the money we spent but I wouldnt have had it any other way. The driver was a nice woman but was a little difficult when I told her that I would need the top up for the ride to the church. She insisted that I didnt need it up and my hair wouldnt get messed up. It definitely would have!

Haute Bride
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I got my Jennifer Leigh Lady Day veil here. I never thought I wanted a veil. Then I went to try on my dress and tried on this veil and knew I had to have it! It is so beautiful and delicate. It worked perfectly with my dress. However the veil was sewn on incorrectly to the comb and I had to have it fixed by my seamstress.

Awesome. I felt so beautiful and I am so thrilled with Sherries work. I didn't know how to explain to Sherrie exactly the look I was going for. I had it in my head and tried to piece the vision together with several pictures. The day of the wedding she totally got it and my hair was exactly what I had in my head. Her team also did a great job with the mom's and bridesmaids. They all decided on their own the styles that they wanted and she made them all look so gorgeous!

Classic Party Rentals San Francisco
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We got our chairs, glasses and napkins from them and all were great quality. Classic is based in Burlingame and if I didn't work with them in my job I probably wouldn't have used them just because they are really far away from my site. If your site is closer to their warehouse they are a great, professional and organized company to work with. Their inventory is really high quality. The glasses we used, the retro glasses, were incredible. They looked awesome on the tables. I debated the chivaris to save some money and I am so glad the illogical side of me won out. We used the Carmel Bistro Chairs for cocktail hour. I thought they looked great and they were a lot cheaper than the chivaris.

I really love WVCs food and presentation. Up until the time I booked I really liked the service. After that the response time and service dropped off a bit. I think it is just another case of a company that is stretched to thin. One the day of the wedding for the most part I was really pleased with their work. A few things worth mentioning 1. They ran out of rum for the mojitos within the first hour of the cocktail hour (this was one of our specialty drinks being passed) and it was not restocked until almost an hour later. They ran out again a couple hours later and never restocked. 2. They never served wine at my parents table 3. I had asked them to hold one of each hors d oeuvres aside for Rory and myself so we could have them after taking pictures. They told me this wasnt necessary because we would have a waiter assigned specifically to us that would make sure we had everything we needed all night. I never met this waiter and I only got to try 1 of the hors d oeuvres because they were out of everything else by the time we got to cocktail hour. 4. They had told us that they would put a goodie bag in our room so that we could have some things to eat at the end of the night. I thought at the time they told me this that this was such a nice touch. It never materialized. That all said that was the worst of it and it in no way impacted any part of the wedding for me. I think overall they did a really good job just a few things fell through the cracks.

Harvest Inn
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The Harvest Inn was an incredible place to have a wedding. It sounds cheesy but it was like a fairy tale, the place it truly magical. My friend Shana became the coordinator there a few months before my wedding and she was such a pleasure to work with. The coordinator that was there before was good but I didnt feel like she was forthcoming with a lot of assistance or information so when Shana took over I was thrilled.

The cake was different than I had imagined but still very beautiful. It was an interesting twist on the cake that I had envisioned and it was delicious! Even the fondant, which I usually hate, was wonderful.
