Andrew and Jessica Photographers
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I can't say enough about the contribution Andrew and Jessica made to our wedding day. They spoke with us several times before the wedding to get an idea of what we wanted our photography to reflect and to get to know us; and it was definitely great to see a smiling and friendly face on our wedding day. Their laid-back and warm attitude made us all feel comfortable in front of the camera. Andrew and Jessica's photography speaks for itself. Their creativity shines in all of their pictures (just check out their web site!) and they have a beautiful, clean style that brings out the beauty of their brides and grooms. They did a great job and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone! -Briana http://www.elizabethannedesigns.com/blog

The food was nothing short of amazing. Our guests were raving about it all evening...which is why I gave The Food Guy 2 stars. They would have received 5 stars; however, we ended up losing our security deposit on our venue because they were out and cleaned up 1/2 an hour late. In our opinion, this was inexcusable...they were listed as a preferred caterer with the venue (meaning, they should have known the ropes about getting out on time), we were out at exactly the time we were scheduled to be, and they still had an hour after we left in which to clean. When we contacted the caterer about the security deposit, they lied to us and stated that they were late because they had to clean up our florals. However, this is NOT true...we bought all the flowers and vases ourselves and were using them for the brunch the next morning. Mine and the grooms' parents cleaned up all the florals and vases before leaving, BEFORE the scheduled time we were supposed to be out. When we informed the caterer of this fact, they waffled and then later admitted they must have mixed up the events...however, they still didn't have an excuse for being 1/2 an hour late getting out of the venue. We can understand if something unexpected came up that caused them to take 1.5 hours to clean up. However, because we were out on time and they had promised to also be out on time, we felt they should have compensated us for the lost security deposit, which they did not do. Now they are refusing to meet with us as we have requested to discuss the matter. We were very disappointed with the customer service we received, though the food was amazing. If you are interested in great food and bad service...choose The Food Guy.

Quality Mobile Sound

Overall a good DJ. Was a little late but it was understandable, due to an accident on the freeway. DJ helped put microphones on the groom, officiant, and our cellist, which was great. Also set up microphone stands and etc. for readings. Was very helpful in giving advice during the reception. Overall the DJ was nice, friendly, dressed nicely, and was approachable. Was nice enough to play a great polka as our last song!! Contacted us before the wedding to talk about our needs, which was great. Recommended!

R-Mine

R-Mine Couture was a great experience for me. I made an appointment for the sample sale and was allowed to browse through the racks with very little pressure. This relaxed atmosphere let me settle in and find the gown of my dreams--a beautiful Pronovias. R-Mine was very helpful and patient, and I did not feel pressured as I had in other salons in the Orange County area. I really enjoyed my experience and walked away with a beautiful gown. The owner even gave me a great Oscar de la Renta bag for the dress...boy, did I get some looks walking through the airport with that!!! =P
