Kristine Che Photography
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I second the rave reviews for Kristine. She is unbelievably calm, and my husband and I had a great feeling for her style when we did our consultation. Our engagement photos came back so wonderful, and I was so pleased with our wedding photography - it was so beautiful and natural, and really caught the spirit of the day (which was a bit more hectic than I thought it would be). She's also super organized and on top of things, so even when our proofs were delayed because one of her processors was located in the San Diego area that was affected by wild fires, she gave us an 8X10 print for free! Seriously can not say enough great things about her. My husband even says that any portrait sessions we do in the future - family, holiday, baby - he wants to do with her. :) And he hates getting his picture taken!

Georgia was my hair and make-up person as well - I absolutely loved her, and my sister and mom did too! They never wear makeup or get their hair done, and she made us all look very natural but beautiful. They are very pricey, but I felt it was worth it for the quality of service and overall experience. I would recommend.

Black Forest Bakery
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Our cake was beautiful - we chose a design that Darlene said was called Surf and Sand, and it was very elegant. The tasting was delicious, and the cake was so moist on the day of. One of our guests thought the white chocolate fondant was the best frosting she'd ever tasted. Darlene is very professional and organized. Cakes from Black Forest aren't cheap, but well worth the money you pay for a beautiful, tasty cake.

FLY BY NIGHT Disc Jockeys
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I reserve my 5 star ratings for those that really go above and beyond, and Ray and Fly By Night were amazing! Money well spent in every sense of the word. Two meetings prior to the wedding to finalize music choices and lots of recommendations and guidance. Super nice and so much fun to work with! One of our top vendors.

Flowers by Laura
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Laura was outstanding. Like the other review mentions she works very well through email, and she was very good with following up as we got closer to the wedding date to finalize the details. Super pleasant and professional to work with. The flowers were absolutely amazing on the day of - everyone was complimenting us on them, and we felt that is was such a good value because the arrangements were so lush and beautiful! We were so pleased, and I would recommend her to anyone.

Funny Buggy Creations
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
I would not recommend Funny Buggy for invitations. While the designs are fun and modern, the customer service is terrible and certainly not worth the hassle and stress it causes. The finished product wasn't great, either - my invitation had a type-o in it that we had cleared up in the design page process, and the thank you note edges were uneven so I spent extra time trimming each before sending them out. Sooo not worth the hassle.

Tortilla Flats
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Tortilla Flats did an awesome job for our wedding - we were hosting a pretty casual though festive affair, and they met all of our expectations. The service was great (Cory, the Banquet director, really knows what she's doing) and we and all of our guests had a great time. They also recommended a great DJ to us. The only thing I would say that would make it better would be having a separate space to get ready in, and also giving the wedding party a bit more time for the over all wedding as part of the base rate - four hours total for the reception and a 1/2 hour for the ceremony seemed a tad bit rushed.
