We received our video a few weeks ago and it is beautiful! I have watched it a few times now. I highly reccomend getting the highlight video, that's really the only thing that people will sit through. The only negative thing that I can say about Thomas Hughes is that their communication was very poor during the weeks that we were supposed to get the video. They gave mis-information, never apologized or followed up after I complained. It left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth.

I had a really good experience with my mom buying her dress from Trudys. The salesperson was really helpful, nice and professional. However my experience trying to get bridesmaid dresses there was HORRIBLE. The staff was rude, unhelpful and pretty useless.

Kirsten was great, my dress fit perfectly, it looked so beautiful. My only issue was that my bustle broke right after I started dancing. I think that the dress was just to heavy for the attachment. So I ended up holding my dress for the entire dancing part of the night, but I for some reason didn't mind at all. Glamour and elegance had kind of left me by that point :). Overall my experience with Kirsten was very good. I did have some issues during the process. At my second fitting my dress fit very strangely and I had to point out the problems and I felt like she didn't really notice. She was also very distracted during the fitting. When I left I was really upset about my dress and I was at the point that I wanted to pick it up and get it altered somewhere else. Kirsten called me the next day and we made an appointment to come back in. After this visit I was totally reassured and it came out beautifully.

Bridesmaid Dresses- Jasmine Dresses, B2, color: New Shell Pink Style #B3308 I hope this doesn't sound snotty but I didn't even look at Jasmine dresses online. I did not like the pictures on their website. They have all these girls with these dresses on sticking out their chests with a fan blowing the dresses and their hair. I thought they looked so cheesy so I didn't take it seriously. When we went to try on the dresses, the Jasmine dresses were all the ones I really liked! They all fit great, looked fantastic and the dress we selected looked so incredible on all the girls. As far as Netbride goes, I received perfect service from them, it was a completely pain free process and the dresses came in two months!! I purchased the dresses for about $110 which was almost $70 cheaper than Trudy's, which is where the girl's tried them on.

4 star for the church and 2 star for the Coordinator The church itself is really charming and beautiful and romantic. It really fit the mood for the day. The wedding coordinator Deborah is an absolute flake. She was the only vendor I didnt select, I had to hire her if I got married at the church and was the only person I was disappointed in. My first interaction with her was when I scheduled a meeting to do a walk through of the church. She cancelled as I was walking out the door and rescheduled for the next day. By this point I had already driven to my parents house in Marin and my sister had driven over from the East Bay so we had to spend the night at my parents house. The next day she was over an hour late and when she arrived the mass had just begun so we couldnt walk through the church. Then on the wedding day when my husband arrived at the church he noticed our alter arrangements in the back of the church. He told her that they needed to be put out. She told him that they werent our arrangements and that ours were already out. He looked out and saw these two huge blue and yellow sunflower arrangements and told her they werent ours. She insisted that they were (they werent). So all of our wedding pictures will have these horrendous arrangements in them. Not the end of the world in the grand scheme of things but annoying.
