Awesome website! I ordered numerous things including reception candle votives, satin ribbon, birdcage card holder, candles, parchment roses, glass bowls, etc to accent my wedding. The prices are the best out there that I found and the shipping is fast! The beautiful vintage-like birdcage was only $13!!! They package their products very well so the damage is minimal. The one bowl that did come cracked they replaced easily and quickly after I called them. I would recommend ordering immediately because they do tend to run out of things FAST. However, they do seem to restock often so that wasn't a real issue! Great DIY ideas and materials.

Our hotel has a contract with Torrance Bakery for any wedding. They made our cake and did a wonderful job copying the picture we took in. Melissa was extrememly helpful and patient answering all our questions and giving us multiple tastings! We couldn't decide on buttercream icing or fondant so she actually had a couple samples make with fondant icing so we could get a better idea of the taste. Fondant was not covered by the hotel contract but it was OK because we ended up loving our cake! Our flavors were red velvet/cream cheese, white cake with fresh strawberries, and chocolate cake with fudge filling. Everyone thought it was delicious! :)

Rolling Hills Flower Mart did all the flowers for my wedding and they did an amazing job! We met with Jeff and he was very patient and understood the type of feeling we were trying to create for our wedding. He suggested ideas that would go well and offered his advice where needed to make sure the design was perfect! He also tried to incorporate every request I wanted! It was just easy with him. He is a professional and an expert. I truly felt that I could trust him and not worry that are flowers were going to be over done. His attention to detail is unmatched and he was very mindful of our budget. He was always available on email or phone to answer questions as well. I would not have worked with anyone else. When we received the flowers on our wedding day we were literally shocked. They were astoundingly beautiful and we received so many compliments from our other vendors, guests, wedding party, etc. I recommend him highly and I believe everyone should meet with him before picking a floral designer for any event. You will not be disappointed. Thanks again Rolling Hills Flower Mart!

We had our wedding here last week (March 2009) and were incredibly happy with how everything turned out. Marie, the catering manager, was helpful in answering any questions and her banquet staff is unmatched in the South Bay. Service, food, landscaping, etc was excellent. We received endless compliments. The courtyard is very pretty and a perfect place for an outside ceremony of about 120 or less guests. Very intimate setting and cute ballroom right next to the courtyard as well! This luxury boutique hotel is decorated very glamorously and quirky at the same time. The lobby is a great place for pictures! If you are bride booking this location you must stay in one of the bridal suites the night before your wedding because it is HUGE! We had enough room for 7 people to get ready and the photographer and the hairstylist. The ballroom is a bit cozy but fine if you are having a smaller wedding. Also, if you have the extra time you are not too far from the beach to go take pictures. One of the best parts about this hotel is that it is hidden off of Sepulveda so it is a very private place that not very many people are familiar with. Definitely a must see for any bride! :)
