"All I can tell u is, all the 150 guests at the reception were at the dance floor. And the 150 guests were from age groups 3 to 85. We had a BLAST. All of us had such a wonderful time. Infact some of the guests and my friends later booked him for their family events. Ken is a very sweet and humorous person. Oh.. He also was the MC (making announcements, intros, etc). He is a good speaker - short, sweet, humorous intros. He made the entire reception look very smooth, well organized and enjoyable. He plays all kinds of music and he changes the music according to the mood of the crowd. We did all kinds of dances - electric slide, hip hop, classical ballroom, chicken dance... and whole lot of other dances - I don't even know their names. For one of the songs/music, all the guests (I mean 150 - This is no exaggeration), went like a long train/snake around the reception hall, around the empty tables & chairs. I worked out a good sweat that night. He is the BEST. Book him. U will feel very proud, later when everybody talks about the fun they had at your wedding reception, even after 1 year. Yes. People still talk about our wedding reception. He is the DJ for all my family's future events."

"Well arranged Beautiful flowers within our Budget (which was quite less when compared to others). Excellent Customer Service. Definitely will go back to them for future celebrations. The Florist came to the church and arranged/setup all the flowers. Similarly, she came to our reception hall in the evening and setup the flowers even before the guests stepped in. Infact, she even decorated the table where the cake was placed in an elegant manner. She just volunteered to help my friends setup the cake table and did an excellent job, though the cake table was not in her contract. Florist Contact Nos: 408-246-9900; 408-246-9907"

"She is the best. Very sweet person. She knows what she does. I was impressed by her color shade choices. She knew exactly what to apply. The makeup was ELEGANT. That is the right word. It was not gaudy or flashy. I tried a couple of other makeup artists before I came across Linda. I can vouch on Linda. She is the BEST of the BEST. I am a Indian with dark skin (could say I look like Afro-American). My bridesmaids - one was Asian (Chinese) with medium length hair, another Indian (fair skinned) with long hair, another caucasian with short hair. None of us told her about our personal color choices. She just knew the colors and hair style that would look absolutely gorgeous on EACH of us. Forgot to mention, she does normal makeup. Not Airbrush. After a very expensive trial & error experiments with various makeup artists, I found that Airbrush makeup is not for all skin tones. Infact, some of my bridesmaids (including myself-the bride) looked pale with airbrush makeup. Some makeup artists put too many colors and layers that u look very gaudy. ugh... I hated it. By the way, normal makeup also stays long and looks very elegant & beautiful in all the pictures (even if u cry or become emotional at the ceremony or sweat hard due to dancing at the reception). I experienced tears as well as sweat and my makeup was still intact from 12:30PM to 12:00 (midnight). Thanks to Linda. By the way, she also did makeup and hair for my Mom & Grand ma. They looked GORGEOUS. I still thank God for showing the best vendor at the right time."

"Excellent place to get married. The wedding coordinator of the Church Lisa is the most patient and absolutely loving person I've ever seen. She explained to us all the formalities, went through all the procedures and went thru the entire rehearsal process. We gave her the wedding rings and all the payments (choir, band, priest) during the rehearsal the previous day, so that she can settle the accounts on the day of the wedding. Very well organized person."
