This was the very first store I went to when shopping for a dress. I had heard about bridal salons requiring that you make an appointment before trying on gowns, so I don't know why I went without an appointment, but since it was my first outing I just didn't think about it. I walked around with my mom, and we picked out two dresses only to be told that I could not try them on since I didn't have an appointment. I was disappointed, but understood it was my mistake. I made an appointment to come back the next day. When we went back the next day, from the minute we walked in, the women were not friendly and it was not a welcoming atmosphere. While we were looking at dresses my mom suggested we leave and find a more accommodating salon. There are so many other bridal salons in OC so I'm not sure why Mon Amie feels they can treat potential customers the way they do. I was a serious shopper, and it was just me and my mom. If I had found a gown I liked there I would have bought that day. I actually ended up buying my Oleg Cassini gown at David's Bridal (which I NEVER thought I would buy from David's, but had a great experience there). I spent 1/3 of what I planned on spending and I love my dress.

The Terrace Room at the Cliff House has to be THE most beautiful location for a wedding in all of San Francisco. The building is gorgeous and historical, the view is amazing and the food is to die for. We are not able to hold our wedding reception in the Terrace Room at the Cliff House because it can not accommodate our 250 person guest list, but we are having our rehearsal dinner here. Arranging it with the staff has been wonderful - they are super helpful and everything is so delicious! I wish we could hold our ceremony here also - getting married on the white balcony overlooking the ocean and Seal Rocks would be ideal. I would completely recommend the Cliff House to anyone with a guest list of 160 or less!

I have been working with Debbie to design the cake for our 8/1/09 wedding and she is absolutely wonderful to work with! She listens to everything you want and comes up with the best ideas. We have had a tasting and all I can say in DELICIOUS! I will update with more detail after our wedding, but so far Not Just Cheesecakes is my favorite vendor!
