Great place for a wedding - the venue is very grand and exquisite! Their wedding coordinators were wonderful and really were able to take me through my wedding process from start to finish helping me plan every last detail. I couldn't have asked for anything more. The tasting that we got to try of our dinner was simply a night to remember. We were stuffed and we got to sitdown with the head chef and change anything that wanted to our exact tasting! The wedding night itself, the food tasted the same as the tasting - pretty good considering we were not hosting 300 guests! Highly recommended.

Paper Source - Chicago
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We used Paper Source for the printouts for our name cards and menu. They had a great selection of papers that matched perfectly in color. I could be more happier. I was lucky too that I got a deal since they had a weekly special going on at the time!

Especially Yours Chair Covers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Beverly or Especially Yours Chair Covers was great. We wanted a certain color scheme and type of fabric and she had them all! She was patient in helping us get matching covers that went well with the overall color of the reception hall and it ended up to be perfect! Delivery was a snap too. Everythign was setup by the time I arrived and they came back and the end of night after the reception was over to collect back the covers. Very seamless! I would highly recommend them!

Sacramento Limousine Club
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
We contact Limousine Club for our wedding but at the end decided to rent a convertible Benz instead. Their prices were reasonable however and they had a good selections of limos from stretch ones to old style.

Steppin' Out Productions
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My fiance and I went for private dance lessons for our first dance and Steppin' Out. We took 5 lessons with Ashley and were impressed at what we learned! She was really patient in teaching us all our steps and even choreographed our entire dance with us. We did so well when we performed on our wedding day. Ashley was so nice that she would even come into the ballroom during the off hours so that we could practice our dance with our song and have the entire dance floor to ourselves! How good is that? :) Highly recommended.

Davids Bridal
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
David's Bridal was a one stop shop for all your bridal needs. They are good with alterations but the lead time was longer than what I needed which is why I took it to another place. There are many brides that use them though!

Justin Fone Productions
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Justin Fone productions was AWESOME. From the time we met Justin we knew we wanted him to be our videographer. His personality, his style were exactly what we were looking for! I'm not sure what his prices were since my husband paid for it :) Our video was amazing too. The editing and everything captured everything with our day and I couldn't have been any happier. All my friends were super impressed too and watched it from beginning to end without being bored. I would highly recommend Justin Fone to anyone! You won't be disappointed.

Men's Wearhouse
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We got our groomsman tuxedo's at Men's Wearhouse in Sunnyvale. They have a great selection and even had really small sizes as one of the groomsman was on the small size. They were quite lenient on the return policy as well and we returned it a bit late and didn't incur a late charge. Very helpful and patient staff too!

Vincent Au Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Vincent Au Photography was the best vendor we had at our wedding. His work is AMAZING and I couldn't have asked for any better pictures. He really has an "eye" for photography and is really passionate about his work. I would highly recommend him. Most of my bridesmaids liked him so much during our wedding party portrait session that they are planning to work with him in the future. His packages were extremely reasonable and he was extremely courteous and patient with us during our entire day. You're missing out if you don't contact him and take a look at his website for some samples of his work! Thanks Vince!

H2 Cards
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
H2 cards was a place that we could get great wedding favors and invitations for all of our guests. Although they cater to mainly the chinese community (I think they get most of their favors from Hong Kong) I must say, a lot of their stuff was really cute and the prices were very reasonable. We ended up making the favors ourselves but I was really interested in the set of magnetic photo frames that they had! They also had books and books of invitations to go through!

Yank Sing Catering
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
We thought that the Rincon Atrium is much nicer than the restaurant at Yang Sing. However, when we went to see what a wedding was like, make sure you get a good audio system since with the high ceiling, it tends to need a lot of speakers for everyone to hear you clearly.

Presidio Chapel
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
This chapel was very cozy and would work well for a small wedding. The lighting was very good (for professional photos) and the brides room was large and not stuffy. They also have stained glass which adds a nice church feel to it. Overall, we liked the church and it was in a great and quiet part of the city. I'm not sure if you have to be an active member of that church to be able to have your wedding there though.

Zappos.com
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
If you need a place for all your bridemaid's shoes, Zappos is the best. They have a great selection and if you are not in a hurry, they sometimes have awesome deals! We found all of our bridesmaids shoes there and it didn't break the bank and they all fit and were comfy for the entire day!

Simply Blooms
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Highly recommended. They had the exact flowers that I was looking for and was patient enough to see my dress/BM dresses color to get the flowers to match perfectly! They were also patient enough to go through hours of photos etc. until I found the perfect bouquet. The flowers lasted my entire wedding day and didn't wilt at all near the end of the day. It was a really hot day too. I would highly recommend Simply Blooms for anyone looking for flowers. They made my day perfect!
