Can you say AWESOME? Our wedding cake was too die for, but our grooms cake 'took the cake'! It was a replica of my hubby's favorite Hawaiian shirt, and no one could believe it was even edible! Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!

They were great to work with, and site includes basic tables/chairs, etc. Beautiful setting. We had our ceremony in front of the pond, cocktails in front of the mansion, and luncheon on the meadow.

Our tasting was simply the best meal I've ever had. My MOH went with me, and even she couldn't believe it. It was at their restaurant in Danville with one of the owners and their coordinator. I was a bit nervous because they changed coordinators 3x in the year before my wedding (we used their event planning services as well). After the 3rd time (about 9 months before my wedding), the owner took over my event. All was wonderful. We also had them do our RD in our backyard. We were having a hard time with our size and budget for the RD and finding a place that didn't break the bank. I finally when to PD and said I have X amt of $, and I need to feed X amt of people, and we'd like a luau theme. Can you help? They stepped up and gave us a great deal from start to finish. Our guests are STILL talking about the food from our reception almost 1 year later.... AWESOME vendor!

My experience with this salon was AMAZING. First of all, I bought all my BM and FG dresses there. The vendor we were interested in was Watters. I had picked a few styles off the vendor website, called around to different salons to see if they had the styles. No one did. So I called J'aime, and they were willing to order in the samples from Watters for my gianormous wedding party (10 maids). They got the samples, girls went and tried on and decided on a style. When the dresses came in 2 did not fit the girls (all were measured at the shop). I happened to be down there looking at FG dresses and mentioned to the owner that 2 didn't fit (2-3 inch gaps) and that those girls hadn't gained weight. She asked if one of the girls could come in. One lived down the street so bopped in with her dress. Owner measured her, looked at the tag on the dress and the dress was tagged the size that we would have ordered. Maid tries on dress, and owner sees gap. Has maid take off dress and measures the fabric circumfrence. According to the chart, the size should have fit someone 35" around, but it was only 28" of fabric! Owner had Watter re-do the two dresses and Fed Ex them to make in time for the wedding! Also, we did get our FG dresses there (US Angels), and they were too tight by the time the wedding rolled around. She let us exchange for bigger sizes. AWESOME to work with! Plus they let you take pics! If they had carried my wedding dress vendor, I would have ordered it there too!

Wonderful, and they also put me in touch with some trumpet players that they had played with before (DH wanted to recess to Trumpet Voluntary...can't have that without trumpets!) They were awesome and very professional!
