A Sweet Design is AMAZING!!! We decided to check this place out because it was just a couple of miles from my parent's house. She had an appointment later in the day which was great because I work long hours and when we got there she was nothing but friendly. The cakes we tasted were fabulous and she was totally willing to listen to the things I wanted for our cake. I wanted cupcakes with a baseball shaped cutting cake and they did it to a "T"!! Four different flavors AND the amazing cupcake tower, decorated in our wedding colors were all part of what we got and we couldn't have been happier!! My best friend even got a job at A Sweet Design shortly after our meeting with Joeleen!! They now have their cupcake shop open and it's amazing!! I'd totally recommend them to EVERYONE !

Cari did our engagement AND wedding photos!! We were actually her first solo wedding and we thought she did a GREAT job!! Our Epics were at Dodger Stadium and she sucked it up and shot them there even though she is a Giants fan!! :) As for the wedding, I had TONS of photos to choose from and I love the way we all look in them! Considering we were her first wedding, I think she did an amazing job of getting lots of the great/important shots while staying in the background and not being in our face during the special moments of our day. I'll be doing a boudoir session with her once I get my butt into shape too!! She is a great lady to work with and would definitely recommend her to anyone! Thanks Cari!

Eh...that pretty much sums up my feeling about this vendor. At first they were very responsive but as it got closer to our wedding, they became harder and harder to get a hold of. We actually never even signed a contract with them so I'm darn lucky they showed up on wedding day! The videographer himself was very quiet and professional on wedding day. When I got my video back WOW was i disappointed. The editing quality was AWFUL! Their big sell is that they send you 8 copies of your video...which they did BUT they were literally plain dvds with our name written on the front in sharpie and put into one of the lil paper sleeves. Talk about cheesy and unprofessional. At the end of our video there was a "message" on the screen from my husband and I...but we NEVER gave the company any such message to put at the end of the video. They just MADE something up...so weird! I actually requested the tapes of the raw footage and gave them to my cousin. He edited their footage in with the footage my cousin took with his own video camera and did an AMAZING and professional job compared to what iMemory did. So, not AWFUL overall, but most certainly would not recommend them to anyone!

Kristeen is an amazing asset to any and every aspect of your wedding!! We used her for day of coordination only BUT she was there before the wedding helping me with everything from my escort cards (she's computer savvy) to contacting my pastor and videographer when I was freaking out about timelines, etc for the day of. She is a DOLL and sooo fun to work with. I'd recommend her to ANY bride...snag her up now because I think she's going places :) She's gonna be a big someone someday!! :)

Our wedding isn't until May of 2010 but I wanted to start my review now. The coordinator here is AMAZING! She has been nothing but accommodating and willing to tweak things to make our day perfect! She ALWAYS answers emails in less than a day and is just so sweet and personable. So far so good, I'm incredibly happy and the site is gorgeous!! :) Edit: Our wedding day was perfect!! My ONLY complaint was that the banister that went up the outdoor stairs could have used a coat of paint lol..everything else was gorgeous, food was delicious, and our bartenders were AMAZING! Would totally recommend Knollwood to anyone! Prices were much more reasonable than quite a few other venues we checked out too!
