F.C. Wong Photography
My husband and I hit the jackpot by having F.C. Wong as our photographer. (Excuse the bad pun. Were from Las Vegas!) At the time, F.C. was trying to get his name out by offering a name your own price promotion. Naturally we had to find out for ourselves if this marketing campaign was too good to be true. F.C. was very professional, warm, and was receptive to our ideas (like having a high school prom-like photo booth area where our guests would come take pictures with us instead of us making the rounds to each table). He presented his portfolio and we were impressed by his keen ability to capture human emotion. We wanted a photographer with a natural artistic eye and knew we found the right man for the job. Our package included an engagement shoot and we had a blast working with F.C. that day in Monterey. He made us feel comfortable and spent a lot of time making sure he got the shots he wanted. When we saw the pictures, we were blown away with how beautiful they turned out. On the wedding day, F.C. and the second shooter, Gene, were both on-time and were great about meeting all our family and friends. After seeing some of the sneak peeks, I have no idea how they were able to get those amazing shots with the challenge of poor lighting at my parents house and at the church. They were faced with the challenge of rain and the daylight faded quickly prior to the reception but somehow they managed to take exquisite pictures. Since those name your own price package days, F.C. has indeed established himself as a key player in the wedding photography business. I like to think that I discovered him before he became so well-known, haha. Thanks F.C. for chronicling our wedding day in a way we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

I couldnt have asked for a better day-of-coordinator and florist for our wedding on Nov. 8, 2008. I found Patty through Yelp and Project Wedding and had to meet this person with such rave reviews. After I read on her website that she caters to floral designs of all sizes and budgets, I knew we had to meet her. Via e-mail, I vaguely explained my floral vision various shades of purple and table centerpieces with flowers submerged in multiple cylinder vases. At our meeting, Patty presented us with her interpretation of my vision and stayed within our minuscule floral budget. We walked out of the meeting knowing with certainty that we had to look no further. We hired Patty for day-of-coordination but she was always ready and available to answer any questions and provide suggestions throughout our entire planning process. She went absolutely above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. I consider myself meticulous and organized but Patty is so unbelievably on-point with every tiny detail. Her floral arrangements are artistic, fresh, and picturesque. All our guests admired the flowers and I owe it all to Patty. I dont know how she was able to deliver all those flowers from Sunnyvale to Monterey (a 1 hour drive) and her delivery charge was very fair. Patty truly loves weddings and it reflects in her work. Thank you Patty for giving us the wedding of our dreams!
