Buddy the cake designer was excellent from the moment we stepped into the bakery. He gave us some books to look at and we decided what we wanted. He customized the cake just for us. We had the carrot cake and it was so delicious, moist and not too sweet. I just loved them. We also used Carlos Bakery for our Cookie Buffet. All of the cookies were super fresh and tasted amazing. We had personalized biscotti and mini black and white cookies. The guests loved the Cookie Buffet and there weren't any cookies left over

We had Nelson, Maria and a 3rd assistant (can?t remember her name). They were great! I loved working with Nelson, he was fast and kept everyone and everything moving. I got my proofs back and I hard a hard time picking my favorites because there were so many great shots. We even took extra shots in Jersey City by the path station, and he stopped traffic so we could get some shots in the street! They were all really fun to work with and I will absolutely be using them again for any pictures I need in the future (baby pics, doggie pics, etc)

They were great!!! Everyone was dancing the entire night, and we had a blast. They played everything from the oldies to now. They sang our wedding song perfectly and I just loved them! The prices were really good compared to some of the others I researched, and I would recommend them to everyone.

Jen was great, her work is amazing, and I loved working with her. She was super fast getting back to me with things, she always made every change right away and was always done right. I will absolutely use her in the future for invites, cards, whatever stationary I could need; she is the lady to go to. She is just awesome!

Saks Fifth Avenue (NYC)
I went in to look WAY before the wedding, not thinking I was going to find anything, but I did. I met one of the nicest people ever, Josette, she wasn't pushy, she was just like a member of my family! I never had one problem with anything for the dress. I had a custom muslin fitting, and the fitter for Ulla Maija came to Saks to do it for me, no extra charge. They were truly a pleasure to work with, and I wish I could go there all the time and get that personal attention!

They were very good and had great prices. I had no problem with them at all, they delivered and picked up when they were suppose to, the chairs were in excellent shape.

Hyatt Regency Jersey City
I don't know what I can say about the Hyatt, except that they were excellent. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, we asked for was there. Krystine the catering manager was super attentive, she was there from the very beginning and had everything we asked for and then some! Daniel our personal butler for the night was some how always right next to us when we needed a drink refill, but never in our way. All of our guests said that they have never had such personal service at a wedding before. The food was delicious. Everyone I have spoken to said that the food was the best they have ever eaten and I totally agree, it really was amazing. The fillet was so tender you could cut it with a fork! I don?t know what else I could possibly say to give the Hyatt any better ratings, but I will tell you that it was the most amazing night of my entire life!

Jillyan was great. I found her from my sister, who used her for many other weddings and special occasions. She is really quick and doesn't make you look heavy, and all made up, just perfect and totally natural! She was a pleasure to work with and I will be using her again. Everytime I have a special event to go to I always give Jillyan a call, so she can make me beautiful!!! Thanks so much Jill! ~Gina H.

Jenny Orsini Events
What can I say except WOW! She is super organized and got things done! We booked her a little later in the planning process, after most of the big things were booked. I really wish I had found her sooner, because all of the great ideas and resources she had would have bee a great help when we first started out. She was just amazing, from going to appointments with me, to picking things up when I couldn't, to just calming me down when I needed to talk. She has become a friend and if anyone is thinking of getting a planner to help them out from the very beginning, or just a DOC, I would HIGHLY Recommend her. Angela, her assistant was great too! They were both there for Bryan and I the whole day and night of the wedding; whatever we needed they were there. When my mom was getting nervous, they were there, when the bridesmaids needed help, they were there. Jenny and Angela were just amazing and I wish I could express better, how much Jenny really did!
