Jay is an excellent photojournalistic photographer and we would highly recommend him to anyone for wedding photography. His shots from our wedding were fantastic. He took a nice mix of funny, candid and more serious shots to give a really nice range of pictures. He makes any location look gorgeous, any lighting situation work and everybody looks gorgeous in the pictures. Jay is very easy to work with he answers emails promptly, makes the effort to meet with you as often as you like and understands what you want from a photographer. During the day of the wedding, he was very relaxed and easy-going which put us at ease as well. After the wedding, he was also very attentive. He even got some of the pictures to us within a week of the wedding! Overall, not a single complaint, and we would highly recommend him.

Culinary Excellence Catering
I could not possibly say enough good things about Culinary Excellence! Without hesitation, I would recommend them to anyone who needs a caterer. We used Culinary Excellence for our wedding at the Dunsmuir Estate. Chris not only did the catering, but also did the cake, the flowers, the chair covers, and took care of all the linen and assorted rentals. Chris is fantastic to work with he does not get stressed, he is on top of the details and he always gets back to you in a timely manner. Chris was also a great resource for bouncing ideas off of. Chris also takes so much of the stress off of the bride and groom on the wedding day. We were planning on having an outdoor ceremony, but it rained the day of the wedding. Chris told us not to worry about a thing, he would take care of all the last minute changes (we had to move it inside) and he allowed us to enjoy the day with our friends and family. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, the flowers were exquisite, and people are still talking about how beautiful and tasty the cake was. Culinary Excellence exceeded all of my very high expectations and all at very reasonable price.

Mark Phinney did a phenomenal job at our wedding. We had a mix of Indian and Western music, in both the ceremony and reception, so we did not have the typical music requests. Mark was on top of it all and despite some things I had read about him having technical issues with microphones, everything worked great for us. Mark definitely kept the reception going with a good mix of both Indian and Western music to keep people on the dance floor. He is not an intrusive or cheesy DJ at all. And his price cant be beat! We thought Mark did a great job for us and would gladly recommend him to anyone.

As limo companies go, they did what they were supposed to. They showed up on time, they got us there in one piece and the limo was in very good condition. They are a bit pricier than others, but I had heard nightmares from some of my friends about the limo not showing up and having to deal with a last minute scramble. With Le Grande Affaire, you know that they will show up and do what they need to do.
