My parents bought us lessons for Christmas last year and we had some much fun taking them! We got one group lesson and five private lessons and all of them ended up being with Christina. She was SO damn sweet! She worked with us on having lessons on Sunday afternoons since we were only in Sac on weekends and she was so great about it. Shes a really good teacher and is very patient about everything. Shes also really cute and funny! We had such a blast doing this and I think we ended up looking pretty good during our first dance, we didnt have to do the clutch and sway!

I was very happy with the service I got at HOF, from beginning to end they were wonderful to work with. I paid a bit more than I wanted to for my dress but no one else carried my dress online so I had to get it at HOF. The alterations were perfect the first time around and were pretty reasonably priced to boot.

Davids Bridal

I didn't pick out my girl's dresses. I just told them I wanted them to wear dark purple. They all ended up going to David's Bridal, unbeknown to me and each other! They all chose different dresses, so they all got something they loved, looked great in and yet matched. They all looked wonderful ;) I don't know anything about the service or prices they got, but I didn't hear anything bad, so I assume it was fine.

I cannot say enough about this place and their staff! The event co-oridinator, Mike Zupan, was kind of intimidating at first but he really knows his stuff and will bend over backward to accommodate you. The hall was all ready to go at 10 on the morning of and everything ran like clockwork until the end of the night. Mike worked with all of our vendors to make sure they were on the same page and everything ran smoothly. The food was AMAZING! All night I got a million comments about how wonderful the food was and how beautiful everything looked. The best part was that Mike had his staff pack up all the leftovers and send it home with us! The day after the wedding we got to eat our wedding meal all over again!

Katherine was fantastic to work with through the engagement session all the way through to the wedding day, very easy going, funny and friendly and also very accommodating. She did our e-pic session in Davis and didnt even charge us a travel fee. On the wedding day all of us girls were running about two hours late (more on that later) so needless to say that cut into our photo taking time, by the time we got to the site there wasnt that much time for pictures. After the ceremony we only had about an hour and half of light left and so Katherine and her assistant had to work fast. The reason I gave her less than an A+ is because I didnt get any pictures of me and my girls or me and my family. I understand that we were late and we were losing the light but since those pictures were important to me I would think that she would make a genuine effort to get them. I know some of the blame lies with me because I didnt make my wishes more known (I did provide her with a shot list but there was no way we were going to get to all of the shots because time constraints) but everything was moving so fast I didnt even realize that those shots didnt get taken until way later in the night. It makes me sad to think about the pictures Ill never be able to get again :(

Glenn was wonderful! Since we didnt live in Sac anymore and he was booked on weekends he did our final meeting over the phone and went through every step of the ceremony and reception step by step and made sure each of us was satisfied with how it was set up. Very easy going and easy to work with. The ceremony music was perfect, the timing, fading, everything was great. The reception was loads of fun, he got everyone up and dancing and played a good variety of music. He even broke out some blow up guitars for the kids! He was fun and wacky without being goofy or stupid. He even remembered to give me back the two CDs I lent him that had songs I wanted used on them.

Anthony Damiani's Mandolins
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We wanted to have live musicians during our cocktail and dinner hours. We were going for an Italian theme with the wedding so we wanted some Italian sounding musicians and boy did we get it with Tony & Sal! They played the mandolin, guitar and accordion while they strolled through the reception area. Sal sings in English and Italian too! Everyone loved them, they even took requests. They played the Itsy Bitsy Spider for one of my friends little girls, it was so cute :D

Some people may be slightly afraid of it*s not so nice location (in South Sac next door to a laundromat) you cannot argue with the food! We decided at the last minute to invite all of Adrian*s family from out of town to join us for dinner on Saturday night before the wedding and so it ended up being nearly 50 people when we had planned on only 20! They handled the extra people wonderfully and made sure there was always a waitress circulating the room in case we needed anything. The food came super fast and everyone was super pleased with it all. It is a family tradition to eat here for any celebration so it was totally fitting to have a big family dinner here. And the bill for food, beer, soda, salad and tip for 50 people was just under $300-WOW!!

Make-up Artistry and Hair Design By Jaime
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I had 3 trials with Jaime before the wedding so I knew she would do good work. A week before the wedding I told her that 5 of us needed her services and that we needed to be ready by 1 pm so we could start taking pictures. She said no problem, we had to start at 8 am in order to do that. She showed up right on time and got to work right away, she did all the hair first then started in on makeup around 11. Well by the time 1 came around she still had two bridesmaids to go! We ended up being two hours late getting to the hall and completely missing out on taking a ton of pictures. To Jaime*s credit, my MOH was a pain to deal with-had Jaime re-do her hair and fix her make-up like twice so that added time on to the whole process but still, it didnt add two hours worth. Jaime is a sweet girl and does really wonderful work and I was very happy with how I looked and all of my girls came out looking stellar BUT she couldve started earlier or sped up the process. At one point it became very clear that we were late and that didn*t seem to get Jaime to speed up at all. Im very sad that she took so long and I missed out on taking a lot of pictures.
