Brandon designed the lighting for our reception at Hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica. It turned out beautifully and we couldn't have been more pleased. The lighting was warm and inviting while making the room look even more lovely than it already is.

Blushing Bridal Makeup
Annie was amazing! Not only did she make me look beautiful on my wedding day, but she helped keep the atmosphere calm while chaos surrounded us! She had an amazing attitude and went above and beyond in making sure everyone looked their best on the day of the wedding. Just to give an example, my mom had a hair crisis at the salon (they did NOT do a very good job) so after Annie finished my makeup, she offered to help my mom with her hair. It turned out beautifully and my mother couldn't have been more pleased. I was so happy that my mom could also look her best on my wedding day. Thank you Annie for doing such an amazing job!

In Stitches with Reene
Reene was a dream to work with. She is very affordable and does an amazing job on your dress. I took my wedding dress to her because I needed a little breathing room. Reene came up with several different options, and was able to find two seams that had enough fabric to be let out while not making any changes to the look of the dress. It came out perfectly! She also sweethearted the neckline which was just right. She also does gown cleaning, so I will be taking my gown to her because I know that she takes great care in what she does and is just amazing at it!

It depends on who you get to help you while you are there. Some of the sales/rental people are excellent while others are incompetent. We experienced one particular salesperson to be completely incompetent at her job as she made a bunch of mistakes. We spent nearly 2 hours at the store when we came to pay for all of the tuxedos for our groomsmen. It was a very frustrating experience. Luckily, we got all of the right vests and ties for the groomsmen and fathers. However, they neglected to tell me (even though I had spoken to them several times on the phone) that the original tux that we had ordered (a 2 button Calvin Klein) was discontinued and that it was now just a 1 button tux. Thankfully it looked similar to the original, but I would have liked to have known about it! Overall, a less than satisfying experience.

Felicia Perry Photography
Felicia did an amazing job at our wedding. We just got our online gallery up a couple days ago and are so pleased with the photos she was able to capture. They are beautiful! Not only does Felicia take wonderful photos, but she has a great attitude and high level of professionalism. My husband and I felt so comfortable around her that it felt like she wasn't even there half the time which made for some great photos! We couldn't be more pleased.

Paper Source - Chicago
I went to Paper Source to get the matericals to make my programs, escort cards, and table numbers. They have BEAUTIFUL papers and the color that I needed - POOL. It was just the perfect color and almost perfectly matched my bridesmaid's dresses. Although they don't always have everything in the store, you can also buy online which is extremely helpful. Their oval printable labels were great - I used them for my escort cards!

On Bended Knee Films
I found Jeremy on Project Wedding and based on his excellent reviews, hired him without even meeting him -- and I'm so glad I did! He did an excellent job on our photo montage that we played during the reception, so I was pleased to find that the final video of the wedding turned out just as great. Jeremy was so professional that during the ceremony and reception I barely noticed that he was there - and yet he got all of the important shots! I definitely recommend him.
