Jack's prices were really good and he was really easy to work with. But there were a couple of problems that came up at the reception. If you're having him do the lights and the gobo, make sure that they are properly set up prior to the beginning of the reception. Luckily I had two coordinators who looked at it before anyone was there in order to fix it. Also, the tech that was working the projector for the photo montage completely messed up. While he was testing out the slideshow prior to the wedding, the tech did not reset my slideshow to the beginning. So when it was time for all the guests to see the photo montage, it started in the middle of the slideshow. The tech didn't even try to start it from the beginning. He just kept it going. So I just let it go, but no one was able to see the beginning. So just make sure that you have someone look over the setup of the lights and stuff prior to the start of the reception. Other than that, his prices are good and he's very responsive. Also his lights completely made a difference in the ambiance of the reception and it was beautiful.

City of Commerce Flowers
Eddie is magnificient. The first time that I met him, all I had to tell him was the color of my wedding and what I was looking for in the flowers. After that, he just asked me basic questions and recommended to me what flowers to have and what colors to use in the floral arrangement to make the colors pop. We set up a second appointment for me to look at the centerpiece and the bridesmaid bouquet. It looked beautiful. I literally was floored. Their prices are really good. You get a lot for your money and they are very accomodating to your needs. I will come back to give a review on how everything turned out after my wedding. EDIT: I cannot say enough about Eddie!!!! He was magnificient. He was able to get me peony for my bouquet which was shipped from Holland for my wedding on Jan. 24, 2009. They were sooo beautiful. When I walked into my reception hall, my mouth literally dropped. All of his centerpieces were full and amazing. All of my guests could not believe how extravagant the centerpieces were and they thought I paid an arm and a leg, but in reality, for what I got, the price was very affordable. His flowers completely changed the atmosphere of my reception. They were absolutely beautiful. If you are looking for someone who can transform your reception into your dream wedding at an affordable price, use City of Commerce Flowers and ask for Eddie.

wedding alterations by Mahtab
Mahtab is magnificient. When I called her the first time, I had less than 2 months before the wedding. I thought that the dress needed to be resized but when I got there, she first told me to put on my undergarment. But after, she told me to try the dress on without an undergarment. When I did that, the dress fit me perfectly. I did not need to resize it after all and by not wearing the undergarment, it actually gave me more curve. The undergarment made me look like a box. I only had her bustle my dress and steam it for me and put on a hook that was stronger than the factory. The bustle was magnificiently and it fit perfectly with the style of my dress. Mahtab just knew what kind of bustle would be nice for the dress. I didn't have to tell her what needed to be done. She is great and her price is magnificient compared to others. I had no fear when I went to Mahtab that she would mess up my dress. From everybody else reviews, I was confident that she would do it right. The drive is far from LA, but it's worth the gas. EDIT: My wedding was on Jan. 24, 2009 and everybody complemented me on the bustle. It was beautiful. Now I am looking at pictures from guests who took of my bustle and it looked beautiful.
