Loop Event Arts and Interiors
I found Loop after reading a review that RAVED about Mary Lois' work. I fell in LOVE with her arrangements on her website and quickly wrote an e-mail asking for a bid. After a prompt response through e-mail and a phone call later that week, I received a DETAILED description and estimate covering all areas we had discussed on the phone. Unfortunately, she was not in my parent's ideal price range, so I sadly wrote an e-mail telling her I would see her in Martha Stewart (yes she's that good)! I was so excited by her creativity and love of flowers, I decided to write another e-mail and ask if she needed help, and surprisingly she did! I had to hire another florist for our wedding, but since I was working with Mary Lois when I got married, she was able to do my bouquet. It was beautiful (picture on my bio)! So, I now work for Loop Events and can say that I've had the opportunity of working on approximately 13 weddings this summer, ranging from grand, upscale events to intimate affairs, and her work is ALWAYS detailed, beautifully understated, unique, and exactly the vision the bride was looking for! Some people know your vision more than you do and that's Mary Lois at Loop Events!

Nouvelle was the first place I went when trying on wedding dresses. The atmosphere is amazing and Saida and Chantel go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. They helped select all the dresses I tried on. I had an idea of what I wanted but they encouraged me to try this beautiful blush silk organza Cymbeline dress that was nothing like what I thought I wanted and it was PERFECT! I went to 5 other stores in the bay area and NO ONE cares more about the bride then Nouvelle does. I bought the Cymbeline dress a few months later. When it came time for alterations, I went to other places first and knew I had to work with Saida and Chantel again. I would never have known about the French bustle without them (it looks way better than a traditional bustle). Nouvelle should definitely be one of the shops you visit. Its the ideal wedding dress experience......

I worked with Kathryn Kenna during a HUGE destination wedding for a well known family in the bay area so of course the event had to be flawless. As a vendor, I've never felt more cared for during a wedding then with Kathryn and her staff. Her communication and organization of the day was dead on (did I mention it was in Big Sur during the fires this summer!). Every single vendor that worked this wedding was perfect for the couple and location. I STRONGLY recommend Kathryn for an event. Brides should know that they are in good care with Kathryn and all vendors who are making the day special for the couple will be happy as well.
