Jennifer Tuton Jewelry
Jennifer Tuton is a true artist. She has an eye for color and design like no one I have ever known. I have been wearing Jennifer Tuton jewelry for years (8 years to be exact) and I ALWAYS get compliments on whatever I wear. This summer when I got married it only made sense that she made all my wedding jewelry and gifts. 1. My wedding earrings were PERFECT! I got them far in advance and it was torture to save them for the big day. 2. I had no bridesmaids, but I still bought the single gem pendant necklaces for all my favorite girls in SF who threw me my bachelorette party. Each necklace was different because each girl is so unique. They all wear them all the time! 3. For my out of town girls I gave Jennifer's initial necklaces. The perfect personalized gift for any girl. Also a terrific layering piece. 4. I even ordered two pairs of beautiful gem wrapped hoops for my sisters-in-law for throwing me my shower. They LOVE them! Jennifer Tuton is my one stop shop. As soon as she opens that fabulous pink jewelry case of hers you will be sold. An added bonus is the fact that Jen is FABULOUS! A real sweetheart...I just adore her and what she does.

Laurie Lucov Wedding Cakes
I could not decide which cake I liked best during my tasting. I mostly said things like "Mmmm..." or "This one. No, this one" or "I need another bite of that one" and again with the "Mmmmmm...." I went with a three tier cake and every tier was a different flavor. She made sheet cakes to accomodate all the extra cake I would need (150 guests total). The cake design beautiful and simple...Laurie used my invitations as an inspiration. The cake(s) were outstanding! Many of my guests said it was the best wedding cake they have ever had! Laurie was terrific to work with and I highly recommend her to any bride looking for a beautiful and delicious cake.

I loved picking all the vendors for my wedding and dealing with many of the details...but as the day approached, it was clear to me that I needed someone there to help for the actual day of my wedding. Afterall, I would be busy being a bride. I found Sarah Ghazzogh of A Dream Wedding and she was FANTASTIC! Talk about organized! I don't know what I would have done without her! She confirmed with all my vendors and made sure everyone was paid, and created the wedding day time schedule and....the list goes on. The day was perfect and I did not have to worry about a thing. Everything flowed on time and it all seemed so natural. Sarah was a joy to work with.

It's a Date
For my preview I was late...very late. I was driving from SF to Santa Rosa on a Friday and the traffic was horrible. I should have known better. Rachel was very sweet and understanding and was able to do my hair and make-up anyway. When she asked how I wanted my hair I basically said "I was thinking of doing it half up". She took that basic statement and made my hair outstanding! As for my make-up, it was great. Not caked on foundation and too much eyemake-up where you don't even look like yourself...not at all. I did have fake eyelashes and I HIGHLY recommend them. So much fun and they look terrific in pics. On my wedding day Rachel was terrific. She ended up doing my mother's hair last minute and was so cool about being around all the pre-wedding craziness. I honestly wished she could have stayed for the actual wedding! I encourage any bride to go with Rachel or anyone at It's A Date for that matter.
