Save the Date Originals
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
ordered my photo magnets from Angie at savethedateoriginals.com. I got 100 magnets for $50.00. The turned out great! Angie is great to work with and very efficient. She will work with your own designs or if you arent creative (like me), shell create some designs for you. It took about 3 weeks total from the first time I contacted her to receive the magnets. I highly recommend Angie.

We couldnt be happier with our choice of location. It was absolutely PERFECT! We were married on the golf course in front of a lake with a beautiful mountain view it was breathtaking. Our site coordinator, Shalene Tirado, was awesome. She was there every step of the way through the planning process and made sure that everything was taking care of. She far exceeded my expectations. After the ceremony, our guests were escorted to the covered patio where they enjoyed a cocktail hour with hors doeuvres. They were then moved inside for the dinner/dancing reception. The wait staff was wonderful and the food was AMAZING. The presentation and taste was just wonderful. Everything was outstanding.

Kim Irons Photography • international photojournalist
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I love Kim! She was absolutely wonderful! She is such a great person to work with and we had a blast taking photos with her. I hired Kim about a year prior to my wedding from a bride's recommendation and I am so glad that I did. She did our engagement picks which were awesome so I was confident that our wedding picks would be even better and I was right. Not only are her picks fantastic but she is very inexpensive. Also I got a 2nd photographer for free! She called me two days before my wedding and said that she had another photographer who was working with her and that if I approved shed like to bring her along which basically meant more pictures for me at no additional cost like Id say no to that. Also you dont have to buy the rights to your photos. In all of her packages, Kim includes a CD of all of the digital negatives. I cant say enough wonderful things about her. If you are still looking for a photographer, you MUST hire Kim! She lives in Carlsbad and does weddings in the Orange County and San Diego areas. She travelled to my Palm Springs wedding for only $50 extra to cover the cost of gas.

California DJ
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Shane was FANTASTIC! We hired California DJ after we received several recommendations. Through the planning process I worked with the owner, Michael, who was great. He was very efficient and thorough in getting every detail to make sure everything went well. Michael was originally supposed to be our DJ but a few weeks before our wedding he called me up and said he had to go out of town for a family emergency. He was due to fly back the day before our wedding but said he didnt feel comfortable staying on as our DJ just in case something happened and he wasnt able to get back in time. He said that if it was ok with us, he would like to have one of his other DJs take over. I really appreciated Michael keeping in contact with me and letting me know what happened to insure that there werent any problems or conflicts with our wedding. He said that Shane has worked for him for 19 years and that he knew he would do a great job at our wedding. He was right! Shane was awesome. He was the best DJ I have ever seen. There were so many guests at my wedding asking me where I found him because he was so great. We had so much fun and Shane really kept the party going. He did an amazing job and far exceeded our expectations. Everyone said how much fun they had and that he truly was the best DJ. I highly recommend Shane and California DJ.

Davids Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I have heard tons of horror stories about Davids Bridal but I have nothing but great things to say about them. I initially went to the Corona store and purchased my dress. It was such a great experience. The sales girl was very helpful and we had a lot of fun. We went to the Redlands store to purchase the bridesmaid dresses and have our dresses altered. We had a similar experience here. The sales people were helpful and we had a lot of fun. We had to order the bridesmaid dresses and were told it would take about 6 weeks. I received a call 2 weeks later that they had already arrived. The alterations lady was very helpful and did a great job. Every time I went there we had a great experience.

Priscilla Gutenberg
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
riscilla was great. She did a fantastic job on everyones makeup. She also arrived right on time and finished everyone on time. I have a lot of sun damage on my face that she was able to cover up and even out my skin tone for the day. The make-up lasted all day and that night when I washed it off before bed, I literally had to scrub my face and eyes about 5 times before it all came off. She did a great job and I highly recommend her. priscillagutenberg@dc.rr.com or (760) 578-7355.

Carolyn Russum
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
If you havent hired a DOC, make sure you do and if youre having a Palm Springs wedding, you MUST hire Carolyn. She was AWESOME. I cant say enough wonderful things about her. She took care of everything and made our day absolutely perfect. To save money, we did our own decorations and Carolyn took care of all the decorating. She made sure everything was set up for the ceremony and reception, she picked up my flowers, she was constantly checking on me to see if I needed anything, she made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. She coordinated everything with my vendors, helped with the timeline, and conducted the rehearsal the night before. She took care of every detail and helped make it the most wonderful day of our life. It truly allowed me to enjoy the day because not once did I ever feel stressed or nervous because I knew Carolyn was taking care of everything. I was able to just relax and enjoy every moment. I HIGHLY recommend Carolyn desertweddings@aol.com.

Promenade Dance Studio
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We have been taking dance lessons since March and we absolutely love them. They choreographed our first dance and we wowed all of our guests. They were amazed at our dancing and enjoyed it much more than the typical hug and rock. We are continuing to take lessons after our wedding because we are having so much fun. I highly recommend promenade.

Pastry Swan Bakery
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Another fabulous vendor. We met with Jeanette for the tasting and we had so much fun. We tried all the different cake flavors, fillings, and frostings. This was definitely DHs favorite vendor meeting. We got a 3 tiered caked and in each tier was 3 cake layers and two fillings. The bottom tier had 3 cake layers consisting of white cake, chocolate cake, and another layer of white cake. The cake layers were separated by raspberry jam and raspberry mouse. The middle and top tier were the same as we were saving the top tier for the next day 3 layers of lemon cake separated by a lemon curd filling and a cream cheese filling. The cake was delivered on time and was exactly what we had envisioned. It was beautiful and the taste was fantastic. They charge anywhere from $4 - $8 per slice depending on how you want it decorated. We had it decorated with ribbon, dots, and our monogram and were only charged $4 per slice. They also charge a $75 delivery fee. I highly recommend Pastry Swan.

Firefly Videography
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I never met Young until the day of our wedding and he was fantastic. Young was referred to me by several other brides. After several emails, I was comfortable hiring Young without meeting him. He is very responsive; I always received a reply from him with in 24 hours of emailing him. He was always polite and professional and answered all my questions. He offered to send me a video of a complete wedding he did so I could view his work and I received the video two days later. It was beautiful. I immediately knew he would be great. His prices are very reasonable. On the day of the wedding he was fantastic. He was a very hard worker and stayed until the very end capturing every moment. We havent received the video yet but I know its going to be great. We are very happy and glad that we hired Young. Young is in the Orange County area.
