My fiance (now husband) and I originally contracted with Brandview Collection in December 2009. In April when I went in to order a fruit display for my August wedding I found out the owner had sold the location to a new owner. After panicking, I met the new owner (ZEE) and he honored our original contract. They renovated the hall and it turned out beautiful! We were one of the first weddings under the new ownership, and although we were very nervous about that it turned out Beautiful!!! We contracted the lighting through Brandview Connection (NEW NAME) for the venue, and the food was very good. Our guests loved the place, and they are one of the few places in the San Gabriel Valley that accepts a band. We had an 11 piece band that most places cannot accomodate, or city ordinances don't accept. This place was not a problem for loud music. I would definitely recommend Brandview for events.

My fiance and I hired Veronica a year and a half prior to our wedding. We had an initial meeting where we signed the contract and kept in touch until our engagement session. Everything went well until the day of our wedding. As I was putting on my wedding gown at the church, my fiance called to say Veronica had sent another photographer in her place (someone we never met).In the contract it does say that in case she cannot make it she is in her right to send someone else, but she did not have the courtesy to call us to let us know, and was flying back from a trip the day of our wedding. We made the best of it that day, but our photographs were not all that we expected them to be. The style was different than what we hired her for, and many special details were missed.

Then our photo album was sent to us 2 months after our wedding with the Bride's name misspelled and the front picture was incorrect. Veronica ordered another book to fix the name, but would not fix the picture, because she would have had to order another book. If we wanted the correct one, we would have had to pay a few hundred dollars more. Pictures are one of the most important part of anyone's wedding day, and brides realize that there may be little glitches here and there in planning, but I would not take another chance with a photographer that lacks in communication. Talent is only part of the business and proper communication with the client is the other major part.

I couldn't be happier with this site and their service. I ordered samples to make sure I knew what I wanted, and they arrived promptly with follow up emails to make sure I had received the order. Once I made the bigger order for my DIY invites, it was the same great service. I received my package in just a few days, and it was exactly what I had ordered with no problems at all. I can't wait to start on my invites, and I will definately use this site for future projects!
