Paper Source is my go to place for paper goods! They have a great selection and great examples for invitations if you are DIY. I don't have the patience to DIY for my wedding invitations but I go there when I need to make just a few invitations or need paper for my scrapbooks, etc. The Pasadena store is the best! They are very helpful and attentive.

This venue is beautiful. We planned to get married here, but after some minor issues that came up (not with Castle Green) we switched the date of our wedding and Castle Green was not available. Their customer service was wonderful and thry tried to accomodate us and work with us unfortunately we were not able to get the date we needed. I definitely recommend them!

After doing plenty of research on Pearl's Place I decided to go for it and get some of the bridal party's dresses from here. I am glad I did because I saved myself a lot of money since I wanted to buy them their dresses. We already received the dresses and they are beautiful and in oerfect consition and what's best they are 40% off! I definitely recommend them! If I could give them more then 5 starts I would!

After many recommendations to Icing On The Ring we finally checked out this place. They had a big selection and my picky fiance (now husband) finally found a wedding band! Great jewelry store!

We went to Yamashiro's for our rehearsal dinner. Their prices are a bit pricey but worth it! There food is delicious! I've been to a wedding here and it was nice although it's a bit small but works if you are having a small wedding.

Like the other Paper Source this one in Beverly Hills has a lot of paper goods for DIY projects. The first time I went here the customer service sucked but from then on all I've had is good experiences.

I bought my junior bridesmaids dresses at Pebbles. They were very helpful and had a lot of patience. I did not know the designer of the dress we were lookin gfor but somehow they found it. Plus it was less expensive than in the other bridal stores I had been to. They have great customer service.

Nataly Lemus Photography
I just had my engagement session with Nataly and she exceeded my expectations! When I got my pictures back I was blown away! My fiance and I are not photogenic, but that was not a problem because Nataly made us extremely comfortable. She has been very sweet every step of the way. She answers every one of my questions super fast and always checks up on us :] I can't wait for her to photograph our wedding! P.S. She was the only vendor my fiance and I completely agreed on. We were so happy that her prices fell within our budget :] ______________ UPDATE AFTER WEDDING 1/28/09 We only have great things to say about Nataly and her husband Art. They went above and beyond. Not only were they our photographers, but Nataly was superwoman. She was always ready to not only take pictures but she also helped with things that were not her responsibility at all like helping me put on my veil and bustle my dress. That really touched me because she was not our coordinator but she still did those things for us that she could have easily not done since they were not part of her job as a photographer. Art made sure my husband and I were okay at all times, always asked if we needed water, if we were okay. They were both great to be around and put all of us at ease for our family pics. For many of the candids we really did not know they were around which helped because we really are shy around cameras. We got our pics back and they are absolutely beautiful! I was happy to see so many moments that I missed because I was either busy or simply not around but I can still enjoy through our pics. The quality of their work is amazing. The colors and sharpnees of the pics was absolutely amazing. Their prices are still affordable and completely reasonable even though their quality of work is impeccable as well as their work ethics. Nataly and Art were our favorite vendors. We don't see them as vendors we see them as part of our wedding. Nataly really became my wedding go to girl and friend. She helped me with my many questions which had nothing to do with photography but was always happy to help. I saw some reviews below from brides who have not used her services saying that she had slow communication. As an actual bride that did use her services, I can't complain. She always replied to my e-mails at the most within 1 or 2 days. To some that might be a long time but I am also a busy girl and had no problem with it. For the most part though she always replied within a couple of hours. I recommend Nataly and Art to anyone who wants high quality pictures. They are amazing to work with and really cared about us as their clients. Thanks Nataly and Art!
