I went to a wedding recently that was at Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Coast and Jeannie Savage of Details, Details was the lead coordinator. I have to say the wedding was beautiful and amazing . . .the way the whole evening unfolded was just perfection. I know these things don't happen without a great coordinator working in the background.

Jinny's Bridal Center
 
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
I did not have a very good experience with Jinny's. Everytime I called or went in to meet with someone they were 'short' with me, unprofessional and rude. They completely forgot to order the bridesmaids dresses and had I not called to check up who knows what would have happened. It looks like there have been some similar experiences based on the other reviews. Proceed with caution!!

Heather B was awesome - she was so good with communication and returning calls and e-mails. She was constantly looking for better deals for me with vendors and she worked SO hard. On the day of she got there early and stayed late, she brought an awesome assistant (Danica) who also worked very hard to make sure all the vendors were working together and the timing was on. Thank you Heather!

We ended up renting a cake tier from this comany at the last minute. They pulled through for us, had it ready and waiting, and then return process was just as easy.

Mon Ami is a great place! Lots and lots of dresses, for a variety of prices. Make an appointment and bring some girlfriends. Ultimately the price of the dresses that I liked were too expensive and then the altering would be another $400! Sorry - good experience but too much $$!! They also don't allow any picture taking, which was no fun for the girls!!

We our wedding on park property in Huntington Beach and had Classic bring in all the tables, chairs, light poles, etc. They got there on time, set it all up according to the coordinators diagram, and then came the next day and tore it all down. Easy.

Best Bridal Prices
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I originally found my Alure dress at Mon Ami and then went online to see if I could get it for less. Found bestbridalprices.com and ordered the dress. It took about 3-4 months to arrive, but everything went well. They have an option for expedited shipping but it was not necessary for me. I had the dress altered locally and then wore it!

Scott photographed our wedding in June of 2008 and did such a wonderful job. He arrived early at the hotel and got pictures of all the girls getting hair/make-up done, we did lots of creative shots in the hotel room and around the hotel. He brought an assistant with him as well who took photos all day and helped with additional lighting stuff. He stayed late into the reception and I think we ended up with around 3000+ photos from our day to look through. Scott is full of energy, a joy to be around and you can tell he loves his work. His photos are full of emotion and color. Thanks SCOTT for sharing our day with us, you did such a great job!!

My bachelorette party was here for the weekend. I didn't spend any of the $$ so I am not sure what the pricing is, but this is a VERY nice resort. My sister took care of all the details along with another girlfriend. It was truly a blast, I will never forget it! Swimming all day, eating and dancing into the night!

I just through my best girlfriend a bachelorette party weekend which included the first night staying at thie beautiful resort. We split the cost between 6 girls. I have been to 4-5 of the wineries in Tememcula and this (by far) blows them all away. The villa we stayed in was top notch, the wine and food area is just beautiful. The HUGE wine bar was about 3 people deep most of the weekend. From this vineyard you can walk over to the Ponte winery which is not as crowded and a little less expensive.

My hubbs went to this vendor online to get the market price on raw diamonds. This helped to see what he could get for the budget. He then took that information and bought a diamond from a local dealer here in Orange County. Helped with negotiating.

Berit's work is amazing. You can go to her website and see endless samples of bride's that she has worked with along with other professional photos. She was actually already booked on my wedding day and so she sent one of her associates - Anha Nguyen - and she did such an amazing job. I was glowing all day because of the beautiful make-up work.

Just wanted to say that I considered this venue for my wedding. I love the uniqueness of the barn and all the backdrops for photos is awesome. There is a long winding road going into the club that is extremely well manicured with flowers and white fence line, lots of trees, open grass and of course the big red barn. Heather and Stacy (the on-site coordinators) are super helpful and uber-friendly. If you are getting married in Orange County but want a rustic feel, with barn etc., then check out this place.
