Nicole welcomed my husband and I into her home. She was very personable, friendly and very reasonably priced. She is an extremely talented and experienced dancer. She is also a wonderful teacher. My husband and I came to her with no formal dance training. She took it step by step and didn't rush us.She also had a lot of patience. We spent three lessons with her. She choreographed our whole first dance. We got so many compliments on our dance. Everyone was quite impressed that we knew how to dance like that. I recommend her to all the southern california brides!

Floral Works and Decor
Ana at Floral Works made the most SPECTACULAR flower arrangements for our October wedding in Temecula, California. A couple years before that, she was also the florist for my brother's wedding. When I saw all the bouguets, ceremony decorations and centerpieces I was blown away and speechless. When meeting with Ana I communicated to her the feeling I wanted to capture with my wedding and my colors and she produced more than I ever could have imagined. She has an amazing talent with arranging flowers. My guests could not stop complimenting me on the arrangements. My bouquet and bridesmaid bouquets were stunning and the tall reception centerpieces almost reached the tent ceiling. I always saw beautiful wedding floral arrangements in magazines and thought that I could never afford them, but Anna proved me wrong. I feel like we got even more quality and quantity of flowers than I ever would have expected. I HIGHLY recommend her company floral works for all brides in southern california!

Pussycat Pin up Photography
For any bride remotely thinking about taking pinup or boudoir pictures......all I can say is DO IT!.....and take them with Beth from Pussycat Pinups!!!!! Beth is amazingly talented and professional. I have to admit that I was a little nervous before hand....I don't have a perfect size 2 body and there are a couple flaws I didn't want to "show off." However, the minute I met Beth and her make up artist Tara I felt completely comfortable. I brought a small suitcase full of outfits, jewelry and props. Beth helped me pick the best outfits for pictures. My make up and hair were AMAZING....I looked like a sex pot.:) I highly suggest you get both hair and make up done by them. Beth walked me through every pose and was able to hide my little imperfections with amazing angles and different lighting. The experience was so much fun. Beth is super talented and has a great eye for pictures. I've seen MANY different photographers take boudoir pictures but I think no one else compares to BETH. Her picutres are sexy, cute and classy. I picked the package with 25 photos. When she emailed me the unedited pictures there were SO many more than 25 that I liked. It was really hard to pick. Beth worked really quickly and had my CD of edited pics ready soon after my photoshoot. Since then I made a book with all 25 photos for my FI to open on our wedding day. I am SO happy with how everything came out. I would highly recommend Beth and Pussycat Pinups to any bride!!! You will be so happy you did it!

wedding alterations by Mahtab
Mahtab was wonderful and personable. She made my dress fit like a glove. She is a very talented seamstress. She listened to what I wanted and did an amazing job. And charged me a lot less than what the bridal salon wanted to charge me. I HIGHLY recommend her to the southern california girls!

Lauren Hillary Photography
We are so happy that we picked Lauren Hillary to be our photographer for our wedding and engagement session. We were so pleased with the pictures from our engagement that we couldn't imagine how the wedding pics could be any better. But she surprised us because the wedding pictures are AMAZING. We have gotten soooo many compliments from family and friends. Everyone has told us they look like pictures out of a magazine. She caught all the important moments and details from the day. Nothing went unnoticed. Lauren is very professional and prompt. She does a great job of returning emails and got all of our pro photos to us in a month's time. Actually the day AFTER our wedding....she sent us a beautiful slideshow of 115 of her favorite pics that we could forward to friends and family. This was so great that we could send this to people that were not able to make it to our wedding as well. I can't recommend Lauren Hillary enough!
