Graceful Music: Harpist & Pianist
My fianc and I just booked Alice for our May 30, 2010 wedding. In addition to being hugely talented, she was friendly and informative during our trial, which was a bit longer than 1.5 hours! Alice knows a great deal of her repertoire by heart and is willing to learn new pieces if given enough lead time. I researched several other harpists in the South Bay and her prices were the most reasonable she prorates her hourly charge after the hour minimum. Ill be sure to update this post after the wedding. Hope this information is helpful!

My fianc and I just booked Raffi and the Love Story package (full DJ and videography services, plus the creation and projection of a 50-image slideshow) with Raffi and couldnt be more thrilled! I fell in love with Raffis energetic, outgoing personality the very first time I met him at a bridal fair and he continues to win me over every time we talk. My fianc appreciates his quick-witted, sarcastic sense a humor hell fit right in with our crowd! Plus, hes just a doll! He spent 30 minutes on the phone with me yesterday, just going over contract details and offering recommendations for florists and bakers in the South Bay. Ill make a point to update this review after the wedding cant wait for May 30, 2010! but am 100% sure well only have great things to say!

Icing on the Cake
My fianc, MOH and I went to a cake tasting at Icing on the Cake yesterday and, unfortunately, we werent that impressed. Though the cake was some of the best weve tasted, the staff wasnt prepared for our appointment. We had to stand at the side of the shop no place to sit and wait for them to fill and ice cupcakes based on the flavor combinations were interested in. Its a cool concept but not realistic since wedding cakes are stacked/iced a day or two in advance, so there is no way the cake will be that moist and fresh. Its a little misleading. Other cons: Theyll only create round cakes that are separated by pillars; no stacked cakes Theres a $50 extra charge for Sunday delivery Price was $150 - $250 more expensive that other quotes weve received Hope this review is helpful!
