Robbins Bros. - Mission Viejo, CA
I loved the experience at Robbins Brothers. Every person I have come in contact with through the process of choosing the engagement ring, wedding bands and general cleaning and maintenance, has been helpful and knowledgeable. The environment is lovely, they do offer you drinks and snacks. The three main reasons we went there is a friend of ours had a great experience and they referred us, we learned about the lifetime warranty and upgrade policy, and the fact that they do cleaning and repairs on-site. They helped my cluless boyfriend, then fiance, then husband through the whole process and made him feel comfortable with the ring he chose. Highly recommended!

This was the first salon I visited after having looked up dresses by designer and finding many of them were sold at Mariposa. I brought a large number of friends and family with me and while there wasn't a place for them all to sit, the employees did not give me a hard time and were nice to everyone. I visited another salon directly after (Mary Me Bridal) and had a terrible experience, but there I found the dress I wanted (Sottero & Midgley) for a bit cheaper than they were offering it at Mariposa. I called Mariposa and asked if they would price match, which they did and gave me another 10% off! I was so glad to have purchased my dress there. The store is beautiful, the people are helpful and I highly recommend them.

Dimitri is a friend of a friend, and the very first vendor we booked less than a month after our engagement. From the beginning, he was professional, communicative and knowledgeable. He recommended the rest of the vendors we ended up working with, and since they had all worked together before, the evening could not have gone smoother. When I look back on my wedding day, certain things stand out more than others. One of my favorite memories of the night was standing at a bit of a distance and seeing every single person we love, laughing and dancing their hearts out under the stars. If you are looking for someone to make your special day go smoothly and seamlessly, without stealing the show, Dimitri is your guy! He even found a special song to us that we wanted to play from Brazil, and the dance floor was completely packed! I am still getting compliments on the music from that night.

Make Up by Kira
Kira was awesome! She worked with my very strict budget and made my mom and I feel like princesses on my wedding day. She had great ideas and listened to what I wanted and everything turned out great. I highly recommend Kira :)

Diana was our contact for our wedding reception and rehearsal dinner planning. She was knowledgeable and went above and beyond to get me everything I wanted and more, while staying on our budget. There were so many choices for everything, but we went with tri-tip sliced on site and mahi mahi. Our amazing chef, Miguel cooked our fish right there at the reception and three months later, the guests are still talking about it! The way they set up the buffet was so beautiful and artistic and it went along with our beach theme perfectly. I was blown away by everything they did for us. If you are on a budget but you want great food and it to be set up beautifully, definitely give them a call!

Laura and Michelle at Elle Photography were great. I enjoyed having them at the wedding, they listented to my ideas and presented their own. We got our photos online in two weeks and received the digital negatives within a month, and the photo albums within two months. Definitely recommend Laura and Elle Photography!
