La Partie Events
Meg was one of my favorite wedding vendors, no doubt. I stumbled upon Meg's website through Prj Wedding and was immediately inspired by her vision, her creativity and her unique style. We met shortly afterward and clicked immediately. Everything about Meg was in line with what I wanted. She listened attentively, was open to and tolerant of my endless suggestions and changes and took multiple meetings and calls to put my mind at ease. While we discussed many ideas, I put my faith in what Meg would design for our big day. A true artist, she exceeded our expectations and delivered an abundance of gorgeous spring florals, some of which we couldn't even name but they were all so beautiful. Her professionalism was evident on all levels; with me as well as my other vendors. Her pricing was very fair for the quality she delivered. She was extremely flexible and responsive, and held true to her need for artistic inspiration. It paid off. I'm so glad I chose Meg for our wedding day flowers. She not only dressed the room in gorgeous flowers but added her own personal creative touches that affected the overal design of the entire space/venue. She has true talent. Her warm and friendly spirit is pleasant and soothing. I would highly recommend Meg, LA Partie Events.

On Location Beauty
I chose Sherry after reading all these wonderful reviews and admiring her work on her blog and in her portfolio. Sherry did hair and makeup for me and my Made of Honor for the wedding. She did an amazing job on us both and kept us relaxed and engaged the whole time. While Sherry is based in the OC, she was more than accomodating to drive up to Alhambra the morning of my wedding, 15min before her scheduled arrival time with iced coffees in hand. After two trials, she did a stellar job the day of considering I wasn't exactly certain what I wanted to go with; up or down...She was extremely patient, professional, and accomodating. She did an elegant low bun and makeup to die for. I received compliments all day on how beautiful my makeup and hair looked. Sherry's calm demeanor helped get me through the stresses of wanting to look my best all made up when I don't really wear much makeup. I put my trust in her skill and it turned out even better than I had hoped. I would highly recommend Sherry.

Kelly Oshiro Events
Kelly and I worked together and began the wedding planning process around the same time last year. A seasoned event professional, Kelly was the sounding board I needed and always had great ideas and suggestions when our weddings were the topic of conversations. She had decided to launch her own business and move to Santa Barbara to get married and embark on these great new adventures. After months of staying in touch, Kelly shared her gorgeous images from her own beautiful wedding that were so creative and classy. I had to have her by my side. Kelly was extremely generous with ther time and insight into the wedding world. She shared meticulous timelines, gave sage advise regarding vendors and how to deal/negotiate with them. Kelly worked collaboratively with my on-site coordinator and crew, dealt with my vendors in a timely manner and kept things moving throughout the day. She was on top of things from morning to night and stayed into the late evening to make sure things wrapped up nicely. She truly helped realize what I had envisioned for our wedding day. My wedding day was so beautiful thanks to Kelly's sense of style and experience. Kelly always made herself available to me and worked very well with all of my vendors, friends, and family. As a recent bride herself, she's aware of all the ups and downs a bride can encounter and has a good sense of how to put your mind at ease. I would highly recommend Kelly Oshiro of Kelly Oshiro Events to help you with any special event and wedding coordinating you need.
