Beauty and the Beach
Katie and her girls were so amazing! Everyone loved how their hair and makeup turned out and it was so easy to have them come to us at the hotel where we were getting ready instead of having to go to a salon. I wouldn't have done it any other way and it was one of the best decisions I made to relax me on a stressful day! Her prices are also extremely reasonable! Katie was able to do both my hair and makeup beautifully and it turned out better than I thought it could and she was so easy to be around to have part of my special day. Thanks so much Katie!!

Camille Rich Photography
We loved Camille! From the first time we met I felt so comfortable with her which was important for me because it can be hard to relax in front of a camera and its such a big part of the day. She was so amazing at giving great direction and she was just extremely professional and knew exactly what she was doing. We had an engagement session down in Laguna Beach and she already had over a dozen locations and backgrounds to shoot at. Then at our wedding she was all over the place and we couldn't be happier with how the photos turned out and everyone has commented on how amazing she was and how they wished their wedding pictures had turned out as beautiful. Thank you so much Camille!

This was the baker that was part of our catering package with Jay's catering and it turned out perfect! We went in for a consultation which was very professional and extremely easy!! We had planned on spending for an upgrade but it turned out we didn't need to. We picked one design with a few modifications and it turned out beautiful and tasted excellent! The girl who was our consultant was also extremely sweet to recommend rehearsal dinner locations as we don't live in the area and even gave us brochures and pamphlets. Overall I was very satisfied!

I picked out my bridesmaid dresses from this store as it was close by to where I lived and they carried the designer of the dresses that I wanted (Belsoie). It's a cute little shop in Woodland Hills that is family operated. It was very busy on the weekend and as we were only getting bridesmaid dresses, we were definetly not top priority so I would recommend going during the week if you can. The dresses turned out perfectly though as I was worried since my girls ordered different styles and we had a few fabric changes. They came in a little too close to the wedding ( only 2 weeks before) but otherwise they were very nice and accomodating. A nice alternative to David's Bridal standard bridesmaid dresses!

I looked everywhere for a ceremony and reception site and couldn't find anything that was quite right. I live up in Sherman Oaks and hadn't seen anything that was perfect for both the ceremony and the reception as I wanted to have them both at the same place and was about to book a different location when I saw the Ebell Club. I hadn't looked down in the South Bay area at all and when I went to see it I knew it was perfect as soon as I walked in. It is a beautiful historical building and the architecture and history and charm was just perfect for my wedding. The staff is amazing and every question I had was answered immediately. They took care of everything and the day of the wedding I was stress and worry free which is exactly how I wanted it! We had a few bumps with the caterer they use, Jay's Catering but it all turned out perfect! The only downsides of the Ebell are the parking offsite and having to have guests shuttle in, but it can't be helped! ( Also a large shuttle fee!) Also the building is beautiful but it is in a slightly strange neighborhood but no one notices anything as soon as you walk in to the Ebell Club it feels like being transported back in time to a historical, elegant evening!
