I have an antique engagement ring that has been passed down in my family. I searched forever trying to find a wedding band that would match it, and nothing looked right. My engagement ring diamond was hand cut so all of the newer cut diamonds looks wrong with it, and nothing matched the engraving. My FI and I met with Sam at DeBebians at their downtown location and he was able to come up with a plan for a custom wedding band that was incredible. He got single cut diamonds for band the so that they would match my engagement ring and had the engraver replicate all of the engraving on my original band. They look incredible together and he was able to do it all in a very short amount of time (less than 2 weeks!). While he had my engagement ring he dipped it and polished it up without me evening asking for it, and it looks amazing. We also bought my FI's wedding band there, and it looked amazing. Sam was good about checking the size and made sure it fit perfectly since my FI's finger is sort of in between two sizes. The prices were incredible and I know had we gone to any other jeweler they would have been much much more - I would definitely recommend Sam at Debebians to anyone.

Jason was one of the easiest vendors we worked with! I gave him a quick outline of what we wanted for our ceremony and cocktail hour music and he was able to put everything together perfectly. He played current pop music during our cocktail reception and our guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about his performance. He was as professional and nice in person as he was on the phone! He music is amazing and he set the perfect relaxed tone for our wedding. I walked down the aisle to his version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" which was perfect. I would definitely recommend him to any brides out there looking for an acoustic guitar performer for their wedding. A++

City of Commerce Flowers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I cannot recommend City of Commerce Flowers enough. I worked with Duke and he was so receptive and thoughtful throughout the entire process. I came in with very few inspiration pictures because I was unable to find pictures of exactly what I wanted, but Duke took the bits and pieces from all of the pictures I bought and put them together to make the most beautiful centerpiece mock-up at our next meeting. He totally rolled it when I completely changed the centerpieces from tall to short and when I called at the last minute to add individual flowers to be placed at each place setting. On the day of I was so impressed with the flowers - they were gorgeous and there was so many of them. My bouquet was beautiful and smelled amazing and included flowers that I never mentioned to him, but just looked perfect when they were all together. We received so many compliments on our flowers and I just kept finding new arrangements at our venue throughout the evening and thought they were all so beautiful. They were also like super earlier in delivering our flowers, and when I asked Duke about it he said that he always sends his guys a couple of hours early because "they can either sit her waiting to deliver to you, or they can sit at your venue." I so appreciated this with how crazy LA traffic was and it just made me feel like my wedding was a top priority to them. City of Commerce Flowers was also so reasonably priced - I thought I was going go into shock when I saw our quote it was so much lower than what I thought it would be. I got quotes for the same number and size of arrangements for almost double the price other places!

Katrina was great to work with. Her calligraphy was absolutely beautiful and she is so prompt and quick! She responded to my emails and phone calls so quickly - and got our place cards, envelopes and reserved seating cards back to us so fast it was amazing!! Her work is beautiful and I got so many compliments on it, but she is so super reasonable that I was a complete no brainer to have to our invites. Thanks so much Katrina!!

Sherry was so incredible. She was definitely one of my favorite vendors to work with! She was super prompt and professional when I first contacted her and in trying to schedule my hair and make-up trial. I ended up getting to my trial like 2 hours late because of the insane LA traffic, and then I sort of got lost too! I felt horrible, but she was like "No problem, still come - see you soon!!" She didn't rush through my trial at all and took the time to play with my hair since the first way she tried didn't work as well as she wanted. I gave her very little direction for my hair and make-up, only that I wanted to be a glowy bride and that I wanted my hair up with layers around my face. She did it perfectly- I loved what she did. She used false eyelashes on me as well, which was the first time I have ever worn them and I loved them so much I didn't want to take them off!! On the wedding day she recreated the trial look and was so much fun to be around. Her team was super professional and my mom and sister were very happy with their hair and make-up. My hair and make-up turned out amazing and I got so many compliments on how great my skin looked throughout the night - which was great because I was crying so much throughout our ceremony that I am even surprised there was any left on my face afterwards! I definitely recommend Sherry - you want someone that will not only do a great job with your hair and make-up on your wedding day but someone that will relax you and be fun to be around on your big day. Sherry definitely fit the bill and I am so glad she was my MUA.
