Kristeen LaBrot Events
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Kristeen is an amazing wedding coordinator, and so easy to work with. She is very professional, very organized, and really works with you to make sure your day is perfect. I thought I was organized, she puts me to shame!

I love how attentive she was to my day from the very beginning even before we signed the contract. Her detailed advice and reassurance on questions I had for her made me at ease and helped facilitate an awesome relationship with her.

If you want your day to just breeze by and in every picture you see yourself smiling and stress free........I highly recommend you hire Kristeen LaBrot Events.

Bread Basket Cake Company
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
Not a fan: I called there today to book an appt for my wedding cake and I was told very curtly that I was trying to book too early? Really booking too early for a wedding when most things book out a year in advance. My first contact with them was via e-mail and I received a curt message from Linda telling me to call the bakery. When I called to talk to Linda not even a minute after I received that e-mail, I was told by one of the workers to call back once I hit my 6mos mark and they hung up.... What the heck? I will certainly be crossing the Bread Basket off of the list alright. What horrible customer service.

Epic Ventura
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
We are hosting our reception party here next year, and so far I have nothing but great experiences working with Epic. Whats smart about Epic is that they have a separate entrance for the venue in the front, so you can choose how you want your guests to enter. Once you step inside you are swept away by what you find. This place is beautiful a definite diamond in the rough. This venue does not have an array of rentals and is not your standard wedding facility. Your caterers will not be able to cook on site, but they have the basic tables, black & white linens and a great staff that has been going out of their way to accommodate me so far. I will definitely do a follow up review to this after our wedding to tell you all how it really went down, but so far I'm happy with this choice. I'm excited to work with Sasha the in-house coordinator as she is amazing and has gone out of her way to take care of my needs and concerns so far. Seriously, if you're looking for a non-traditional wedding that comes with extra perks just go ahead and call Sasha, you won't regret it. Updated 8/25/10 The venue was amazing, karaoke was fun... But the change in staff with Sasha leaving was never the same. All I can say is to make sure everything that is talked about gets written down even the little things. That was my downfall with Epic. I went on face value and verbal agreements regarding a few things with the manager and shouldn't have and that is my bad. Along with that make sure the person that you have been dealing with the entire time you have been planning the wedding is there the night of the event or easy to get in contact with. If your looking for a fun hip place in Ventura Epic might work for you. Just be sure to get everything signed off even if it makes you seem like your nitpicking.

Fujiko's Flowers
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Marla has been was wonderful to work with and I can't wait for my wedding. She is as excited about the vision we have planned for the wedding flowers, and I have no doubt that she will execute them perfectly. What I love the most is that she loves what she does and it totally shows. I'm beyond happy that she is my florist.
