Rock Around the Clock DJ
Positives: Good song selection and some fun ideas for games and for getting people onto the dance floor. Our dance floor was packed for most of the night. Negatives: Our DJ was difficult to coordinate with before the wedding, forgot about one of the games on our schedule, and played a couple songs twice.

We had such a wonderful experience planning our wedding and reception at the Newport Beach Marriott. Our wedding coordinator was really patient and helpful, and the service from the entire staff was excellent. Compared to the other resorts in the area, the Marriott was very reasonable. The food was great, and the day-of coordinators did an amazing job of keeping us on schedule and of managing our giant 22-person wedding party. We loved our ceremony site- we got married on the Sea View Terrace which is really private and has a panoramic view of the golf course and ocean. The wedding package also has some great perks- 2 1-hour massages, 3 guest rooms included the night before and night after the wedding, and a spectacular honeymoon suite. I highly recommend the Newport Beach Marriott for both ceremony and reception.

Dawn from Lavender Hill was the best vendor that we worked with for our wedding. She was patient, had great ideas for our flowers, and did an AMAZING job bringing everything together and making sure our color scheme (blue and orange) turned out right. Beyond color, I wasn't sure of what I wanted for our flowers, so Dawn walked me through everything, showed my all the options, and was helpful without being pushy at all. She visited our ceremony site and had great ideas for covering the railings we didn't like and for decorating the rotunda. On the day of, she and her team were right on time and did a great job decorating the ceremony site, then moving the arrangements to the banquet room for the reception. Our flowers turned out more fabulous than I could have imagined. We had so many guests comment our flowers and tell us that our wedding was the most beautiful they had been to.
