November, 2009 in Phoenix

"Our Wedding was a dream come true! Honestly, we had fun, enjoyed every part of our special day and didn't have one thing we could have asked or expected differently. On November 14th, 2009 it lightly rained in the morning (and mid-day) and for an outdoor event we were a little nervous, but the clouds cleared and created a perfect afternoon/evening for our celebration. The vendors were fantastic, everything flowed and created a seemless and stressfree event for all! We would highly recommend the vendors we used to create your special day. We consider all of them friends now and will continue to work with them for other special events throughout our lives."

Cakes/Candies Vendor:

Let Them Eat Cake

4747 E Thomas Rd
Phoenix, AZ, United States

"LOVE them!! This is a fantastic, family owned cake boutique. And don't be scared, they are VERY good with the price! Plus, they make you a new cake of your choice (flavor, etc) for your 1-yr anniversary! You don't have to worry about saving your top layer and not serving it to your guests. Once you set up your appointment the owner, Barb, will custom design what your looking for (they match colors) and let you taste the flavors of your choice. Everything is reasonably priced and exactly what I was looking for. They deliver throughout the valley with minimal delivery fee's, and if close to their shop, no delivery charges at all! The cake was delicious too!!"


Jennifer's Catering

1341 East Northern Avenue
Phoenix, AZ, United States

"This vendor is high quality and FANTASTIC with creating an entire event! They will coordinate everything for you and give you one single price, from flowers to linens, wait staff to lighting, they will do it all for you and take the stress of working with multiple vendors completely out of the equation. AND, the food is AMAZING. We had a "stationed" dinner with a carving and pasta station accompanied by salads, vegetables, etc and passed hors d'oeuvres for a cocktail hour before dinner was served. It was perfect and everything that Jennifer's Catering did was exactly as I had envisioned it. We've received so many compliments on the food, decor, etc. They are a little pricier than what most catering companies will offer/quote, but Jennifer's Catering is worth the price becuase they have exceptional food and remove the stress from the bride! I couldn't have expected a better fairytale and they created it all."

Trailheads are open from sunrise to sunset."
