Debbie was an incredible photographer. We are thrilled with our photos and our guests are very impressed! She is outstanding, and was professional and accommodating on the wedding day. She brought along Lindsay Calmettes, another photographer, as her second shooter. Lindsay was fun, talented, and I hope her career as a photographer takes off soon. A second positive review for Lindsay!

I hired Melissa and Kasey for only the day of the wedding. I basically wanted them to do the little tasks that the mother of the bride or the maid of honor usually end up doing- running around, putting out fires. They did just that- they helped set up the reception, then Melissa was at the ceremony site helping us with the little tasks that tend to come up before the ceremony starts. I really appreciated how they made sure I had water throughout the reception, appetizers, dinner, and cake. They also made sure our parents had plenty of water all night. My mom has expressed how much she appreciated Melissa's help, so that's good enough for me. The only problem I have in hindsight was that I was surprised that for a 4pm wedding, they didn't arrive until 1pm. Our day started at 8:30am with hair/makeup, etc, so there was plenty that they could have helped with earlier than 1pm. But I found out too late that they were arriving then, so I didn't bother asking them to come earlier. To me, "day of" should mean the whole day. Aside from that, I have no complaints.

Sara Olsher makes one-of-a-kind, awesome designs that you can use for Save the Dates, Invitations, Monograms, Thank You Cards, or any other paper-related project. She made me an outstanding design for my Thank You cards, and I'm thrilled with it. I asked her to draw a bride and groom (to look like us, of course) on Baker Beach, exactly where we had our engagement photos taken. She did it even better than I imagined, and asked me questions along the way to make sure I would get the design I was looking for. I recommend her VERY highly. If you want to ask me more, page me on the NorCal board of the The Knot under the same username.

This is the perfect solution for a bride who wants a veil but does not want to pay a fortune for it. I knew exactly what I wanted, so I went to the website, spent about 10 minutes choosing the correct options, viewed pictures of the choices I had, and was done! It arrived 4 days later, and it was exactly as I had pictured it. The best part was that with all the customizing I did, it was still only $30. I recommend this company to everyone!
