I cannot say enough wonderful things about my entire experience with the Crystal Plaza. To say they threw my dream wedding would be an understatement. The food was incredible, the staff was SO attentive and knew what I needed before I even asked for anything, the decorations were so beautiful that I didn't even need centerpieces. Our family and friends could not say enough about how much fun our reception was.

**UPDATE** 2 years, 10 months and a letter from our lawyer later we FINALLY received our wedding video. While Ken did capture many of the wonderful memories from our wedding and we have enjoyed watching it- he did not give us a polished product. He cannot say that he was rushed...he nearly had three years to put together this video. Before the wedding he asked me if there was anything that I really wanted him to capture and being a musician and music teacher, I said that I really wanted ALL of the music in our ceremony. A group of my students prepared for months to sing at our wedding and he cut practically the entire piece out of our ceremony. My husband arranged a beautiful rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" which the Rutgers Glee Club performed and it was not even IN the "finished" video. Much of the "dancing" footage seems to be slapped together and there are many moments of dead space. Luckily, we paid for the raw footage of the night so we have every thing that was recorded. I am NOT the kind of person who writes bad reviews or complains. If you look at any of my other reviews you will understand that. Ken was unprofessional and demonstrated unacceptable customer service. He was not responsive until I started writing reviews on wedding blogs, and then didn't respond for another 10 months or so until our lawyer contacted him. I understand that he was in a "bad accident" and while I can empathize, there is no excuse for the complete lack of communication when he had already been paid in full for his services. Please do not make the same mistake we did. I cannot believe that this man is still in business. Save yourselves the aggravation that we have been through. I DO NOT RECOMMEND KEN STILLMAN.

I had the pleasure of working with Jayd at a friend's wedding back in April. I was so impressed with her ability to take such gorgeous candid pictures without ever "intruding" on the moment. By the end of the day, we all felt like we were friends with her- such a doll! Jayd had an online slide show of pictures up within a week of the wedding! FI, being an artist himself, was so impressed after watching her work that he said "We have to book her!" Needless to say, we called and booked her the very next week. Upon our meeting, Jayd showed us numerous examples of engagement shoots and weddings. She asked us what price range we were hoping to stay within and what we wanted for that price; not only was she able to give us everything we wanted, but she went even lower than we'd hoped! Extremely flexible with her prices! We have not had our wedding yet, but we are VERY excited to work with her and very pleased thus far!

Emily did my hair and make-up for my boudoir shoot with Kamila Harris. I was EXTREMELY happy with both and really enjoyed the entire experience. Emily and Kamila are a great team and both very laid back and easy going ladies.

I just hired Meagan to do my make-up (she works for Tricia) and I am so excited! I had 4 make-up trials done that I was just not happy with and Meagan put my mind at ease. I am so excited to have her do my make-up on my wedding day!
