Trudy's Brides, Prom & Special Occasions
I went on a weekday, and the consultant really had a lot of time to give to me and was very gracious. They had an amazing selection and I tried on many beautiful dresses, but I needed time to think things over. The consultant did not seem happy that I wasn't going to make an immediate purchase. I finally decided to go back to buy the veil, so I stopped in on a weekend and brought my mom and sister--AWFUL, AWFUL! I was just there to make my purchase, but no one wanted to help me, neither was anyone friendly or helpful. I actually felt like I was a bother and unwanted, so because of the poor service, I left without buying the veil. I went to David's Bridal instead.

Jean Marks Weddings
A close friend of mine hired Jean as her wedding coordinator and could not stop sharing with me what a HUGE blessing she was to her. Jean will really work side by side with the bride, and her resources are tremendous. She truly cares about the brides and grooms she works with, and with her wonderful experience, she is a great source of ideas and suggestions, working to make sure she fits in those things that are important to the couple, as well as what can fit within the wedding budget. At the wedding she was not running the show, but working behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly--and it did, from start to finish, a simply beautiful wedding, and everything my friend wanted. Top ravings for Jean Marks!

Nestldown was like a dream come true...a hidden fairy tale. The grounds are impeccably manicured with flowers in every season. The redwood aisle that you walk down is like something out of Fairyland--the beautiful lake and fountain were the cherry on top. We were delighted with the accomodations--it IS possible to just have the ceremony there and really cut the costs. In fact, we were impressed with how much was included --using their lovely bridal house to get ready in, the sound system already set up amongst the redwoods, the used of the limo to drive down the bridal party, setting up and breaking down of chairs, driving our guests down to the ceremony if they chose... Brooke was extremely helpful and kind, the bridal house was perfect for getting ready, and they drove our party down to the location by the lake with an old fashioned limo. So many people told us it was the loveliest wedding they had ever been to, and I would agree!
