Great work, but pricey. And I had problems with their eyelash adhesive (it really irritated my contacts, thus forcing me to take them out right before the ceremony and I was semi-blind the whole day). Even though I got her assistants to work on me (although to save time Taylor Pham did my hair, which i loved), they did an outstanding job. Margaret looked really good! =)

Prince Seafood Restaurant
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
I attended a wedding reception here and I thought it was very nice - the food was delicious and the room was gorgeous (it felt very open with the 2 story ceilings). The only complaint would be that it felt a bit cramped, but otherwise I enjoyed myself.

My roommate had her ceremony and receptions here. The ceremony was very nice, they had a gazebo set up with all these purple flowers (her favorite color). The hotel worked well with their traditional Jewish ceremony and allowing the rabbi to bless the food and kitchen. The food was fairly good, and the reception room was beautiful.

L&L Hawaiian Barbeque
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I love Hawaiian barbecue and I didn't hesitate to order from L&L when I decided to throw a Hawaiian-themed bridal shower. I just ordered the BBQ combo Party Pack since we had 12 people coming. It proved to MORE than plenty. They gave me more meat than was advertised, so that was really cool. But since it was all girls, we didn't eat much. I still have leftovers in the fridge! They also called the morning of to confirm my order, which was nice. So if you want to go a cheaper route and just get catering through L&L, I'd recommend it.

The Flower Shop
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We received a tropical arrangement from them for my grandfather's funeral and I must say that it was extremely beautiful. It was very tall with bamboo, kangaroo paw, green cymbidium orchids, peach colored roses and irises. I found it left on the doorstep when I came back from dinner (which is ok since it's a safe neighborhood and it was at night, so no one could see it), and they actually sprayed the flowers to keep it fresh.

I purchased guestbook pages and an album for my friend's bridal shower. Everything came nicely packaged and on time. The pages looked great (and I bought acid free pens from Target - thank goodness for back-to-school sales), the album was very nice and fit well with the Hawaiian theme, and we had fun going around the room sharing what we wrote. I thought it was also very nice that they included a hand written thank you card! I taped it onto the back of the album for my friend.

I bought my shoes for Margaret's wedding here and I was so happy with the free overnight delivery service. It's perfect and convenient, and if you need to return them, it's free!

Nona surprised me - her designs were so fabulous! The coverings she designed to hide some mirrors looked so lovely and really created the tropical atmosphere I wanted. My bouquet wasn't quite like the picture I gave her, but no matter, it grew on me throughout the night. She was very nice in that I didn't really have centerpieces - I only ordered some orchids and palm leaves to decorate our hotel's floating candles so I was able to decorate 20 tables for only $90 - and she didn't express any prejudice. Plus, she was accommodating in that I added an aisle runner about a week and a half before the wedding. I really appreciated everything she did and the flowers made a huge difference in making everything looked so tropical.

Radisson Hotel Whittier
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
My roommate had her reception here and it was such a blast!! Well, maybe because she wanted a big ol' dance party, and that's just what happened. It was very fun though, the banquet room was large and roomy, the food was actually pretty good, and the rest of the hotel was very nice.

Fun place, it's the adult version of Chuck E Cheese. Get some good drinks, have an innocent bachelor(ette) party, or even rent out the banquet room for a rehersal dinner (and have some fun after!).

Portos Bakery
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This place is always so crowded and there's a reason why - the food is so delicious and worth it! I prefer this location over the original Glendale one because it's a lot larger, there are two counters to order from, and lots of seating. I love their guava strudels! And their cubano sandwich is such a great deal (sandwich plus plantain chips for $3!). And the potato balls would be great for a sports party appetizer. And their wedding cakes...I can only imagine they would be as yummy as their pastries. I've only had one of their sheet cakes (chocolate and coconut) and that was perfect.
