Lisa Lee Design Photography
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Lisa is an absolutely amazing photographer! We loved having her with us on our wedding day. She is extremely creative and allows her clients to be themselves; her style allows them to be comfortable, not stiff and awkward. When it comes to such a special occassion like your wedding, you want someone who is going to listen to you and understand who you are as a couple. Lisa takes the time to get to know the two of you, and really connects on a personal level. Her images capture the energy and emotions of the day, and she tells such a beautiful story through them.

The Lodge at Sonoma
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The Lodge at Sonoma did an excellent job on our wedding! We were very pleased with the entire experience of planning our wedding with the staff at The Lodge. Tracy was very responsive and a wonderful resource when it came to the many different questions that we had. And she took care of everything, I never felt like I had to keep her on top of things. She was always one step ahead of me. She was so prepared! Our initial site visit was great, and while we were first planning on having the reception under a tent and in the Stone Room, after a couple of other visits to the site, we decided that the ballroom would be a much better fit for us. Our guests were to spend the cocktail hour out by the pool and then move into the ballroom, I found it to be a very warm and romantic space for our reception. While we had planned for an outdoor cocktail hour, the weather didn't cooperate and it rained all day long...but the staff at The Lodge didn't skip a beat and created a great space for our guests inside! The food was excellent (and a hit with the guests) and beautifully presented, the serving staff was extremely professional. The packages are very well priced, and having a honeymoon suite included in the package was great! I loved having our wedding at The Lodge, and now my best friend wants to have hers there too!

Wine Country Flowers did an absolutely amazing job for our wedding. When I first met with Anita, we instantly clicked and she understood what I was going for. I told her the flowers I like and dislike and gave her the freedom to create the bouquets and centerpieces. I was blown away with the attention to detail and the extra touches that she puts into her work. The bouquets were unbelievable, the color of the flowers just popped and the handles were wrapped in beatiful ribbon and crystals. She created the most romantic atmosphere for our reception with high and low centerpieces; with over 300 votive candles the ballroom glowed. Our guests were amazed with the flowers and how great they made the church and our reception site look. Anita and the rest of Wine Country Flowers were just fantastic! I loved working with them!

Beloved Cakes
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I was so excited about our wedding cake! The flavors were great, we went with two layers of chocolate for our cake, and two white layers...Laura had some great ideas. We decided to go with a thick chocolate decadence cake with chocolate chips, almonds, and a marshmallow filling, so very yummy! We also had a layer of white wedding cake with raspberry filling, and a heavenly chocolate cake layer with caramel filling. The cake was then covered with a chocolate cream cheese frosting...it was an absolute hit! All of our guests loved it, many of them tried to get two or three slices so they could try all of the different flavors! We did save the top of the cake, but we actually ate it the day after the wedding. It was amazing! I can't wait to order a mini cake for our first anniversary.
