December, 2009 in Surprise

"After only having 4 months to plan and execute, I'm happy to report that it went off without a hitch. It was a beautiful day, made better by the fact that everyone on this page who provided services did a great job. We also really enjoyed using WeddingMapper.com, as did our guests and vendors."


Ceremony: St Clare of Assisi Parish
Reception: Corte Bella Country Club




Cakes/Candies Vendor:

New York West bakery

"James was our DJ, and he did a fantastic job, both in terms of preparation and execution of the reception. He kept things on schedule, played all the right tunes, and set a wonderful tone for the day."

Favors Vendor:

"We had a custom bobblehead created as the wedding cake topper, and Ken (partner at headbobble.com) accommodated our short schedule and had a completed doll delivered a day early. Kudos!!"

Favors Vendor:

Triple A Specialties

1832 South Macdonald
Mesa, AZ, United States

"A++. We designed wedding glasses for the ceremony, and they came out beautifully, and reasonably priced. They can get (and personalize) ANYTHING!!!"


A Candid Affair

Surprise, AZ, USA

"We brought Dave with us from Southern California, and we couldn't have been happier with the experience and the outcome. Dave's temperament was perfect...he wasn't "in our face", but stayed mindful of what needed to be done. The posed photos were artful, and the candids were a blast. We really had a good time with him and you will too."

Registry Vendor:

MyRegistry.com - Registry Vendor - Fort Lee, New Jersey, USA


Fort Lee, New Jersey, USA

"We wanted a registry that didn't confine us to just one or two stores, and this one seemed to fit the bill. Unfortunately, the site is still a bit cumbersome, and since they interface with outside sites over which they have no control, the service is only as good as the outside sites. Adding to and tracking gifts on the registry was a snap, but a couple guests had issues ordering from outside sites. Also, when we received items, the lack of paperwork from the shipper meant that we didn't know who gave them to us. The MyRegistry customer service folks were responsive though, and hopefully they will work with some of the bigger online vendors to iron out the kinks as things move forward."

Rentals Vendor:

Mountain View Limousines

29742 N 121st Dr
Peoria, AZ, United States

"Excellent vehicles, very reasonably priced compared to others we shopped. A great experience."

Tuxedo Vendor:

Men's Wearhouse - Tuxedo Vendor - Chico, CA, United States

Men's Wearhouse

Chico, CA, United States

"A bit impersonal when we originally ordered (my last name was misspelled through the entire process in spite of my efforts to correct them), but I gotta hand it to them...tuxes were fitted at 4 different locations in the country, and all arrived in Arizona on the day without a hitch. Overall they did a great job."


St Clare of Assisi Parish

17111 W Bell Rd
Surprise, AZ, United States

"The staff was very patient and accommodating, both in terms of paperwork as well as in working with us on the wedding itself. The church itself is still very new and austere, so it will get even better as additional fixtures come in and time goes by. They did a great job for us."

"What can I say...Fred Hernandez (Food/Beverage Manager) did an amazing job for us. We had some very specific requests, and he handled them with a "can-do" attitude. On the day, the food was fantastic, and the room was absolutely beautiful. The day went off without a hitch, and I would recommend Fred and his staff at Corte Bella without reservation."
