I took my toasting flutes here to get them engraved (they use sandblasting). I used to work here long time ago, so I knew this was an option. Turned out great and very personalized.

The girls got their Jim Hjelm dresses from Netbride. Excellent service, great on returning phone calls. It was so nice to see how much we saved. They even came early. TIP: Ship it to your work (if you can do that) to ensure that someone is there to sign off for the packages.

I worked with Eddie from start to finish and he was just wonderful. First of all, their prices were great! I quoted other places and they were unbeatable! I had emailed the photo to Eddie and they copied it exactly the way I wanted it. He always returned my calls, answered my questions, faxed me info, etc very great. I was so happy when I saw it.

I love this bakery! They were one of the preferred vendors through Los Coyotes Country Club, but I have used them in the past for my moms wedding anniversary. EXCELLENT cake! So light and yummy. They copied a design I brought to them and the did it. Great service, nice people when you go for the tasting (and they serve you full slices, not little squirts of icing.) Not too sweet, just right.

This place is gorgeous! I couldnt have been more pleased with the site and staff. They just remodeled it a year ago and its got stunning Mediterranean style architecture. Whats smart is that they have a separate entrance for events in the front, separate from members (so you only have YOUR guests going through the same entrance.) And its only your party on that side of the club. Pretty exclusive. Katharine, Dawn, and Gina were the event sales staff and they were the best to work with. Always willing to ask questions, return phone calls (and I called them on every question and they were always polite). Guests have been telling us how wonderful the salmon or filet mignon was (we had a choice in entre) and that the waiters did an excellent job on service. I brought the sales staff all our items to be put on the tables and how to set up the terrace and room and they did it all perfectly for us. We had our cocktail hour on the terrace overlooking lights of the city from top of the hill. The sun was setting during that hour. I heard it was beautiful. A nice touch was that we had complimentary valet for our guests. That was a nice touch. From booking, planning and performance, LCCC was excellent, excellent, excellent!

Our DJ was Mike Carroll (hes a director! Im mentioning that cuz I know hes been looking for my posting!) Oh my gosh, these guys ROCK! INCREDIBLE job. I saw sooo many postings (especially from the OC Board) on these guys that booking them was the least of my worries. When I saw them at the bridal show at LCCC, I knew we had to at least look into what they could offer. They are pricey, very pricey, but it was sooo worth it. We had lighting, bubbles, and a great selection of music. They were able to get 2 families (Bolivians and Filipinos and all our mixed-in-between friends) on the dance floor all night. Mike took care of us made sure things were okay, consulted us if they could play a song from the Dont List cuz someone asked for it. They kept the reception flowing so smoothly. I honestly dont remember any down time when youre just sitting there wondering, okay, whats going on now? or whats next?. I highly recommend them!! Mike was so cool and funny and easy to get along with as well. Awesome job!

Holy Family
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I grew up around this area and went to the school next to it, so it was an obvious choice to go here. The inside of the church is all marble at the alter. I loved our priest Father Bill Bolton. Highly recommend booking him as officiant. He was DHs English teacher in highschool. Hes so easy going and made the ceremony not boring at all, and not confusing about sitting and standing and when which was great for our non-Catholic guests.

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Beth was such a great person to work with as well. She too was the first we saw and booked her after meeting with others. Her demos had this cool intro that none of the others did or were able to do. Her editing qualities were great and I paid a lot of attention to angles taken, switching between black and white to sepia to color, fade in and fade outs, and any other filtering effects. The day of the wedding she was great to work with, along with Bill, her assistant whom we also booked. Many times, I really didnt notice them in the way. Talk about unobtrusive. The video was GORGEOUS! we loved it. she really captured the day so well. we were more than pleased with her work and with how easy it was to work with her.

Floral Supply Syndicate
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This was the first time I did not go to the flower mart in downtown LA. We went here because my MIL has a wholesale license so we got the discount. We were also able to order what we wanted in advanced to ensure we got the flowers and quantity wanted. They were great. We even got to borrow their buckets to take home to put water for the flowers and greens.

Dana Attebery Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This guy was the first out of 10 photographers we looked at and I always remembered his portfolio. His website just sold his work. (Im big on a wonderfully designed web site.) Beautiful eye and sense of capturing photos. Im biased he went to Art Center College of Design. He was soooo nice and easy going right from the start. He always made time for me to answer questions and towards the end, he even helped me develop our timeline from what time the makeup/hairstylist should get to our hotel, what time to leave, etc we have really enjoyed working with Dana. He was so easy to work with the day of the wedding. I didnt even notice him most of the time. We even had his assistant, Frank. We couldnt have anything but wonderful things to say.
