I had a great experience here. I got very personal attention, which meant a lot to me. I had gone to other stores before I came here and I did not get anywhere near the same attention. They had a huge selection too, which was great.

Sheraton Universal Hotel
I reccomend this venue to everyone!! Great food. Great service. The staff really went above and beyond to make me happy. They also had surprisingly good prices. I thought they would be much more expensive. I did a lot of searching around for a venue and am glad I decided to have it here. The only part I didnt like is that the guests still had to pay for parking.

Oscar was so wonderful. We just got our photos this morning and they were fantastic. Let's just say he made me look better than I thought I looked. :) He was easy to work with. Very laid back and a nice person all around. His packages are a little pricey but well worth it. He is a talented guy. He also stayed longer than was in the contract to stay. That really impressed me. Showed he actually cared and not just about money.

I love Kerim and Carlos! From the first meeting we had with Kerim I knew I felt comfortable with him. He went through a bunch of files on his computer showing me dozens and dozens of photos of different types of flowers, colors, arrangements. It was impressive. He really knows his flowers. Anyway, he put together a gorgeous arrangement for my bouquets, centerpieces and other decor. I got so many compliments. It was great.

Portos did a great job with our cake. We had a different flavor for each layer and a simple design that our florist Kerim just added fresh flowers to and it was gorgeous. The guests loved the cake and so did we.

Penny was the best investment we made in our wedding because not only did she help me find the best vendors and negotiated prices for me so I got some fantastic deals but she also always went above and beyond what the contract said. That means a lot to a very nervous and stressed out bride. She was a friend first. She got me organized. Did timelines for my vendors and bridal party. She got us through the rehearsal and kept a great sense of humor through it all. On the day of the wedding, she made sure the day went smoothly and took care of all the venue decorations so it all looked how I wanted it to look. - My bridesmaids and I were up and ready to go at 9am. Penny made sure my hair and makeup people were there and on time. - She called and checked in on us in the morning to make sure all was going well with us getting ready. - When she arrived she came up to our room to check on us again. We were starving and had not had a chance to eat and she pulled out some breakfast bars and passed it out to everyone! Major lifesaver. - At noon we went to get our photos taken and Penny made sure that we would not accidentally bump into the guys. Major cloak and dagger stuff. :) - We had a bit of a hiccup because my grandparents were running late to the ceremony (they were lost) so Penny kept the guests happy and made sure we got caught up on the timeline later on in the day. That was a bit stressful but she really helped to make sure we stayed calm. - Another major thing was that I really liked the other vendors she referred us to. It made a big difference to be surrounded by people who have a good sense of humor are calm people and jump in to help out when needed. I noticed that it really created a very pleasant and calming atmosphere in the middle of the hecticness(is that a word?) of a wedding day. - In the middle of the reception, I noticed that I was having a hard time breathing because my wedding dress was a little too tight ( I should have bought one size larger but thought I would lose more weight). Anyway, Penny was nice enough to go up to the room with me and help me find an appropriate dress to change into since I had not planned for this. I was a little upset about having to change but it ended up well. - At the end of the night she collected all of our gifts and took them back to our room and when we finally went up to our room we were surprised with a very nicely decorated room with lots of pretty petals, a bottle of champagne, candles etc.. she even took my bouquet and some of the extra favors and used them to decorate the room which gave it a personal touch I thought. - And her fee was lower than many other planners I interviewed, but honestly I would have paid more for her in retrospect. She was worth it. There was so much going on on the wedding day that it made a difference having somebody there who was looking out for me and what I wanted.

We are so happy that we chose Rev. Carolyn to officiate our wedding. She is such a wonderful person. Very sweet, caring and personable. When we met at our initial meeting we just clicked. It was hard not to.

We wanted something different than the typical black limo. So we decided to go with a white Rolls Royce and it looked so gorgeous. They have reasonable prices here and great service. Very nice people.

Wine Shop At Home
We ordered personalized wine bottles from Lorena and it was a major hit with our guests. We had the bottles personalized with our photos and wedding date and put a bottle of white and red wine on each table at the reception. We also ordered personalized wine bottles for gifts for our bridal party with special messages on each one. Lorena was great to work with and walked us through the whole thing.

I love Nathan. He had a great personality and really kept the party going. He did the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music and he did exactly what I asked for. Played what I wanted when I wanted it and basically made me very happy. We also got lighting through him and he did a great job with that. The room looked great. Had lights changing throughout the night to create a great atmosphere.

This is the best place for tux rentals. We got my husband's tux for free after renting the tuxes for all the groomsmen. They had a great selection of styles. Cheap prices. Good service. Enough said.
