2000 Dreams Bridal
The original price for the dresses was fine, but they nickel and dimed my bridesmaids on the alterations. Always wanted to upsell..shoes, purses, tuxes, etc. Plus, they had a very poor customer service attitude. They see a wallet - not a bride. Would not use them again.

I and so glad I hired Joe and Mike to video my wedding! I had read other bride's reviews and booked them, and it was the best decision I made. After doing my research TTD had the best package and best price. Both Joe and Mike were so professional and had tons of equipment yet seemed to be "behind the scenes" and weren't obtrusive. Plus, both were just plain FUN! My (now) husband is a bit camera shy but Joe made him feel totally comfortable. I am hoping to get the finished video soon and I am sure it's going to be fantastic! Can't recommend them highly enough. Do yourself a favor and book Joe!

Kerim did my ceremony and reception flowers, cake flowers as well as linen rentals and everything was absolutely beautiful! Everyone loved the centerpieces at the reception and I had many guests asking if they could take them home. I was so pleased with the look of everything I could still cry when thinking about it (corny, I know, but true). My bouquet was deep red with roses and peonies, and as a special little surprise touch he added a rhineshote pin with my initial to it. It was simply gorgeous! This is the best decision I made...hiring Kerim! I love that man.

Valerie's Hair and Makeup Studio
I love Valerie and Sarah!! They did my wedding this past weekend and they were fantastic! Both gals were very relaxed and fun to be around while we were getting ready for the big day. They listened to what each gal wanted and totally delivered. One of my gals has very short and thick hair but Valerie was able to style it in a way that made it look like it was a sophisticated updo with pin curls! It was amazing. My sister, who rarely wears makeup, was so pleased with Sarah's job that all she could do is smile...and take pictures! She couldn't even speak. Sounds corny but it is true. All my gals (and me) looked like ourselves...only better! Fantastic.

I walked into Jobyna's and the absolute first thing the rep said to me was "what is your budget." When I told her I was unsure, she told me to try going to a discount bridal house. In addition, my MOH had originally ordered her wedding dress from Jobyna's and had a horrible time once they took her money. She ended up finally taking her dress, unaltered, from Jobyna's and going to Yelena Bridal in Monrovia to do the alterations.

Just a Girls Event
Rosie just did my wedding this past weekend and I am so happy I hired her. Even though I hired her as a day-of, I sent her emails throughout the 11-month planning process. We met a couple times and eventually I handed everything off to her, which was nerve-wracking for me. But, I had no reason to worry. She followed up with vendors, confirmed appointments and disseminated information. In the days preceeding the wedding I called her with little things to do and they got done promptly. Day of, she was always there, waiting in the wings and overseeing the event. She is very calm which is a help on hectic days. I would absolutely hire her again.

I ordered a white cake with lemon mousse which came with a package through my reception site, La Canada Flintridge Country Club. All my guests enjoyed it. Looked great, tasted great.

I have used Vanessa for my engagement pictures, bridal shower and wedding photos and I couldn't be more pleased. She is fun, bubbly, easygoing and has a great eye. I love the moments she has been able to capture on film. If/when I have a child I want her to do portraits!
