Connie & Jeff's Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My husband and I were married on April 5, 2008. We were married in the Crystal Cathedral and had over 800 guests and also a fairly big bridal party. I wanted all of the day's moments captured on camera as best as possible. I met Connie and Jeff at my cousin's wedding in April of 2007. They had a mishap with their previous photographer and Connie and Jeff were GRACIOUS enough to show up last minute and take beautiful pictures. After my husband and I saw the pictures, we set up a meeting, talked about options and signed the contract. It was easy and smooth and I could not have asked for more. I really liked Connie and Jeff because of the fact that both of them took pictures on our day. We got so many great moments and I am now able to share those photos with everyone on this site. I have to say, they were the most stress-free vendor in the wedding. I didn't even know they were around and the guests had such a great time with them. My husband and I LOVED the poses and ideas they had. We told them in the beginning that we were a fun and energetic couple and wanted the MOST natural shots. I am a person who doesn't particularly like those dramatic poses. Both Connie and Jeff listened to us and also respected our parent's wishes by taking some formal posing pictures. I HIGHLY recommend them because you get two photographers that truly care about the client. My husband and I were able to look at our pictures so quickly after the wedding. I was amazed with the turnover rate. We got all of our pictures (thousands) but unfortunately misplaced our CDs during our move to Georgia. But we contacted them and they were understanding and eager to help us in any way possible.

I heard about the semi-annual Monique Lhullier Sample Sale through a website. I decided to take my bridesmaids and wait in line for about 3 hours. We were near the front of the line and we knew that we could look at a good selection of dresses. The minute the employees opened the door, the store filled quickly with people and dresses were being pulled, snatched, grabbed from any direction. The employees were very helpful with moving traffic and getting people in and out of the fitting rooms. Thank God for my bridesmaids, because if I didn't have the, I would not have been able to try on at least 5 dresses. I found "the one" and it was basically 75% off retail. Since it was the sample sale, I had to do all the alterations myself, but I only ended up having to alter the hem. I received numerous compliments on the dress and I really enjoyed the whole experience.

My husband actually had our groomsmen gifts ordered from here. As part of their gift, we had the Tiffany's deck of card set monogrammed with their full initials. Beautiful outcome! Everyone loved it!

I found the exact sage green dresses I needed on Anntaylor.com on SALE! I had all of my bridesmaids' sizes and I wanted 2 styles in the same color. I called customer service because I found out that one of the styles did not have the size I was looking for. The representative then called around my area and found the dress in the Old Town Pasadena location. They held the dress for me and I went to pick it up the next day! The process was simple and the dresses were half off!

My husband and I were referred to this jeweler by another vendor that I work with on the business side. My husband and I decided to just look at the rings and I really liked their selection plus, he said he could basically customize anything. We didn't buy then because we weren't ready but my husband went back with his parents and Chris was able to find a beautiful heart shaped diamond. It's hard to find a really good heart shaped diamond and I was extremely happy when my husband proposed and I saw the ring.

I did not have my wedding here but we had our engagement session here. The experience was magical and so "Disney." We even ended up taking pictures with Mickey Mouse! The whole time we were there with our photographers, the staff was friendly and polite! We were season pass holders at the time, so we were very familiar with Disneyland. But the time we were there for this engagement session was one of the best times we had there!
