Bella Vista Designs
Trevor from Bella Vista goes above and beyond what you ask him to do. I was literally SHOCKED when i saw his draping and lighting for my wedding! He did more than i even asked for no extra charge. So many of my guests commented on the beautiful impact from his draping. Thank you Trevor!! And...he is super easy to work with!!!

DO NOT HIRE THEM FOR YOUR WEDDING!!! I personally went into their location on 3 different occasions to confirm that they would be able to make cupcakes on my wedding date and deliver them to my wedding location. I was told each time that it was no problem and that i should just call a couple days ahead of time to give them my flavor choices. When i called 3 days before my wedding i was told that they could not accommodate me. WHAT?!?!?! After i confirmed 3 times?!!?! They had my credit card number and everything!!!! THEY HAD TAKEN MY CREDIT CARD NUMBER!!! They proceeded to put me on the phone with the owner who was less than sympathetic. Let me give you a few of her quotes...when i said.."i come from la and stop at your cupcake place every single time we are in town and thats why we booked you"....her response: "thats because we have the best cupcakes"........when i asked about the fact that i had been confirmed 3 times...her response was: "i cannot control everything my employees say"....she also told me that "even if you placed this order 6 months ago i would not do it" WHAT?!?! Of course i told her that she was a terrible business person. Bottom line...she made it clear that she did not care AT ALL that because of the 3 confirmations that i got from HER and her employees, i made no alternative arrangements for dessert at my wedding. She didnt offer to work it out with my caterer...she didnt offer anything...just "sorry theres nothing i can do". Brides do not trust this vendor. Heartless. Thats the only word i have for this business owner. "A piece of cake" in Goleta saved the day with cupcakes better tasting and better decorated and worked with my caterer to get them delivered.

Awful experience. The worst of all my bridal gown appointments. I got a very cold feeling the first time i went but i liked one dress very mcuh so i went back with 2 of my bridesmaids. While i was there looking at gowns on the rack one of the sales women bumped into me very hard and didnt say anything. I thought maybe she didnt realize. When she did it a second time hard enough for my purse to fall off i was shocked!!! I am looking at a 10,000 dress here so i expect some decent service. While in the dressing room the very same sales person barged in asking the person helping me if we had a certain dress in the room. Without asking me or even acknowledging that i was there....the rude sales associate took the dress from my room and NEVER brought it back. WTF?!?! she didnt even ask if that was one that i really wanted to try and more importantly never brought it back. The help there feel like stepford robots. I found out afterwards that it was the manager that was helping me. I find that kind of service unacceptable and refused to give them a dime. I have heard from a couple other people that they have had the same experience. Blech...spend your hard earned money elsewhere

This is me......speechless. I <3 Joel Serrato! If you are lucky enough to have him available on your date.....BOOK HIM! I mean now! This is the stuff you will be looking at 10 ...20 years from now. He is so artistic and passionate about his work and it shows. My wedding planner told me her biggest regret was not hiring a videographer. Joel's videos of OTHER peoples weddings make me cry. I am talking about people i dont even know. I absolutely recommend Joel for your wedding. I promise you will never regret making a place in your budget for him. On top of all that he is super sweet and easy to work with!!
