We used Sparkle for my girlfriends wedding that I was a bridesmaid in. They were so much fun and way cheaper than the other photobooths we looked at. They brought props for us to use and let us design our own banner at the bottom of the pictures. It was well worth the money there was a line the whole time. Paul the owner was very professional and went out of his way to accomidate our special request of setting up several hours before the evnet without charging us extra. Overall I would reccomend sprakle to anyone!

Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa
I highly recommend glen ivy for a WEEKDAY bachelorette party or a WEEKDAY pre wedding get away. The setting is very relaxing on weekdays and there are no big loud groups as you would normally find on weekends. It is very budget friendly if you purchase a day pass giving you access to the large variety of soaking pools, mineral baths, mud baths.... There is a small cafe with affordable lunch, they even offer champagne which is hard to find at a day spa. Compared to other day spas there is a lot of room to hang out with the girls they offer lots of lounge chairs for sunning and shallow pools for wading. Weekends are busy and not very peaceful it is also hard to get treatments if not booked far in advance on the weekends.

Mai Tai Bar
Mai Tai Bar is such a LB gem!!! A very relaxing fun atmosphere in the day time and an energetic party vibe at night. They have yummy food and great drinks. I would highly recommend this location for a weekday rehearsal dinner or a Sunday brunch. Prefer the day time setting much better as there is Hawaiian music playing and is very open allowing for amazing ocean breezes. There is bamboo furniture and a great patio. Very attentive staff and semi private areas.

Cheesy was amazing!! The highlight of my wedding was the photo booth. I was so surprised even my 70 year old aunts got in the booth and took pictures with silly hats on. Mike was very sweet and professional. He set up the booth on time and they brought a separate table with scrapbook supplies on it and invited guests to make us a scrapbook page with the photo booth pictures on it. He also brought a big box with fun props and hats for the guests to wear when taking their pictures. After the wedding we got a disc of all the pictures that were taken in the booth (we even caught a couple of friends kissing) and a beautiful scrap book with the pages our guests made us. I highly recommend Cheesy ~ it is more than worth the money!!

The cake came with my catering package and I was a bit skeptical of a package cake at first but the variety and the quality of what Rossmoor provides was amazing! I upgraded to get an extra tier and even that was only $200. They let me choose the flavors, icing and design. The cake was the most photographed thing at my event. Every comment I got from my guests was about the cake ..looks and taste.

I had my ceremony and reception at the Japanese Gardens and it was Amazing!!! From my very first interaction with the Garden coordinators they were so friendly and helpful. The day of the wedding I was lucky enough to have Janelle as the main coordinator she was wonderful!! I was a stressed wreck and she was so sweet and calmed me down and made sure everything was set up perfectly ~ even my last minute changes. The garden was beautiful ~ I had seen so many pictures of it before my wedding but they did not do justice to the beauty of my day. The bridge was the perfect setting and the candles and twinkle lights glowing at night was like a fairy tale. My pictures came out beautiful with the garden in the background. There were a few problems with the sound system but I believe that was due to the band system not working with the garden system so I would recommend making sure your DJ/ Band does a sound check before the reception to avoid that problem. Overall I would highly recommend the garden!!
