Marianne Lozano Photography
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
What can I say? Marianne is amazing and is just what a bride needs on her wedding day. I had the privilege of meeting her at my sister's wedding, which she photographed as well. She did such a great job we hired her for my wedding. We actually had her come to our reception venue weeks before my wedding to pick out the best and most romantic locations for photos. By doing this, we didn't have to scramble on the day of the wedding to find good "photo spots". Also, my wedding was a bit more difficult than usual since I was married in the evening in winter so sunlight was limited, but she was able to find light and create light where it seemed impossible. The photos turned out amazing. She is professional, but fun, and so creative, always finding ways to squeeze here or there and create a beautiful memory. She also created a slideshow of highlights of our wedding set to romantic music. It's on the Internet and I still watch it at least once a day (: I highly recommend her. I guarantee that knowing Marianne is taking care of your photos will be the most stress-free part of your Big Day!

Hansen's Bakery
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
You can't go wrong with Hansen's cake. My mother recommended me to them since she used their services 30 years ago for her wedding. We went in about 6 months before the wedding for cake tasting. The staff was very friendly and willing to let us taste as many samples as we would like. I knew immediately which flavor I wanted. It was amazing - raspberry filling with white cake and butter cream frosting, two-tiered. We also purchased a special monogram with my initials and my finace's initials. The cake arrived on time at the wedding and was set up beautifully. There was only one issue with the color of the cake that didn't get processed correctly, but once they realized their error they rectified it immediately and everything was fine. Despite this minor hiccup, the cake was a hit and one of the most talked about details of my wedding!

Dance Studio
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My fiance and I know nothing about dancing and were nervous about our first dance. Dance Studio helped us overcome our fears by choreographing a simple yet elegant first dance. Since we are beginners, we took each step slowly and practice over and over again. We were able to complete the dance in only two lessons so I highly recomment Dance Studio if you want to learn a quick but elegant dance for your wedding!

The limo we hired for my wedding was on time and excellent. We had champagne, music, lights, and so much fun. The driver knew exactly where he was going and didn't have to ask for directions. Very organized company and we would use them again.
