We couldn't have picked a better place to get married than Camarillo! It gives the destination feel without flying hundreds of miles and spending all the money. The surroundings in February were PERFECT! The rain that came months before turned everything green and it was just so beautiful! All the mountain range views are gorgeous! Did I mention how beautiful and magical the sunsets are!? Our wedding was just enchanting! All of our guests had a blast and the day after our wedding they were able go shop at the outlets and enjoy lunch and dinner by the ocean!
Great thing about getting married in Camarillo is all the beautiful up to date and affordable hotels your guests can stay in! Big plus! There are tons of beautiful venues in Camarillo to get married in. Spanish Hills Country Club, just surpassed all expectations! We wouldn't have done it any other way!
Rabbi Barry Tuchman is the most amazing Rabbi in all of the land! He performed the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding! I'm Jewish, and my husband is Christian. He was so good at bridging the gap in the ceremony and instead of making it seem like a Jewish Ceremony, he included everyone! He has this way of speaking that is just so peaceful and so lovely. He has an amazing voice that just brings a sense of calm and serenity to every ceremony he does.
Rabbi Barry personalizes all of his ceremonies and each one is different. He has a great sense of humor and knows when to be funny and when to be serious. We love Rabbi Barry and HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM! He's the best! Not only is he talented in his speaking, but he's an artist as well. He creates the most beautiful Ketubah's! And each one is unique! Also, for those Brides (like me) who are picky, he is handsome!
Brides!! Dont be fooled by all the wedding videographers who claim they are the best in producing "movie like" footage, because the only people who can do that is Elysium Productions! You truly get what you pay for and Elyisum really delivers! They are so professional and best of all, they don't use those ugly eye sore tripods and set them on the dance floor with a camera! That is a huge no-no! They use the best equipment, using HD SLR's to capture all your footage. Elysium was worth every penny! They are the best in all of the land! They know what they are doing not only in filming but most importantly, editing!
This is a once in a lifetime event and its important to have the best to capture your day! I wish there were more reviews when I was getting married, but I got lucky and found my way to Elysium! The other great part, is that they are so nice and get along with everyone else! I have heard horror stories of videographers and photographers not getting along and that's the last thing every Bride & Groom need! Julie Hill of Elysium Productions really made everything happen. The only negative thing I would say is that because they are in such high demand and super busy, it is hard to get a hold of her from time to time, but they are still worth it. I wouldn't do it differently. We love them!
Brides! Don't be fooled! There are many Photobooth companies out there. But NONE are like ShutterBox Entertainment! They are very professional and they respond quickly to emails. Not only that, but their Photobooth is beautiful! Its not an eye sore! And I'm a very detail oriented Bride, so looks are everything! It was a very large booth that could fit up to 10 people! ALL my guests commented on how it was the nicest booth they have EVER seen! Also, the quality of the prints were nice and they were not like all the typical booth prints. ShutterBox has an amazing graphic design staff who will meet every need you will ever have to make your prints UNIQUE and beautiful! Also, the attendant the comes with the booth is so helpful and so nice! He did a great job of making sure people signed next to their picture! I highly recommend ShutterBox Entertainment! PLUS they had really fun props! DON'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE! I would use them again in a heart beat!
Spanish Hills Country Club is a perfect place to get married! It is so romantic and intimate. Its not your typical HOTEL wedding. The catering managers are so helpful and cater to your every need. They were very attentive. The venue is BEAUTIFUL! The garden is amazing and the Main Dining Room is spectacular. There are beautiful iron chandeliers! Its a Spanish/Mediterranean inspired venue! There are beautiful fountains and perfect green grass landscapes to take unique pictures. The food is delicious and the presentation of plating was not your typical chicken or steak. It was artistic. The hor devours are DELICIOUS as well! Brides, another thing you MUST pay attention to, is the drive to the venue. What are your guests going to see? It was a beautiful drive! Everything was green and the mountain tops were so beautiful! Its a serene drive. There are tons of strawberry fields. Its perfect! The only negative is not everyone got served cake. So just make sure you voice that concern. Other than that, SHEER PERFECTION!
Christine Zohrabians of Fancy That! Event Design & Coordination is one word, AMAZING! She really made my wedding day 1000% stress free! I am a control freak and like to always handle things myself BUT Christine was so amazing that I was okay with trusting her with everything because she has the same personality with attention to detail. She took charge and made everything a breeze! I had so much fun at my wedding and enjoyed the entire thing. There was never a moment where I questioned where something was or when we were supposed to do something because Christine was always on top of it. She's easy to reach and so super flexible! If you want your sanity and peace of mind, you need Fancy That!
There's no one better than Fancy That! They know their stuff and they care about the details. Most coordinators don't and think you wont notice! She's affordable and a big plus is that she is so sweet! I will always continue to refer Fancy That! because EVERY Bride and Groom needs a Wedding Coordinator/Planner like Christine Zohrabians!
Duke Photography is the best in the industry! I picked Duke because of his artistic eye and ability to capture great photos in a very unique style. Duke's photos are very fashionable, dramatic and glamorous. He pays a great deal of attention to fine details through out the wedding day. My wedding date was February 4th, which is a winter month. Duke is a photographer who has the ability to create great photos in darker settings with extra-ordinary lighting. He also pays attention to these weather details which a lot of other photographers don't (through my experience of meeting with them). Duke has been featured in NUMEROUS publications. He's the BEST and girls, that's one thing you NEVER skimp on. Aside from video, photography is one of the only things that will last the rest of your life and will be the only thing you can look back to your wedding with. DO NOT BE CHEAP WITH PHOTOGRAPHY. You pay for what you get and Duke is MAGNIFICENT and worth every penny.
If you want truly UNIQUE and mind blowing invitations, then you need to contact Creative Works Designs! We saw several invitation designers and not one compared to Creative Works Designs. Sherry of Creative Works Designs really catered to our every need and question. She took our invitations to a whole other level! We had nothing but praises and hearing things like, "this is the BEST invitation I have EVER seen!", and things like, "I have been to a million dollar wedding, and this invitation surpasses theirs".
Sherry truly is an artist. She's creative and very motivated to give her clients what they want! We love her because she also listened to all of our suggestions and incorporated them into her designs. She works fast and you honestly get for what you pay for. We had the most beautiful, unforgettable invitations! No one came close to Sherry design or price wise. Brides, if you want unique and beautiful and classy invitations, see Sherry! We love her!
Fantasy Frosings made such a beautiful and tasty cake for our Wedding! We love them because they are UNIQUE! Their flavors are classic with just a twist! Who wants boring wedding cakes?! Not only are they tasty which is a HUGE plus, but, they are BEAUTIFUL! Leslie Maynor really took our Spanish Theme into account and just created this beautiful most amazing masterpiece!
We had 2 flavors: The White Satin, an old fashioned white cake filled with layers of white chocolate mousse and shaved dark chocolate alternating with fresh raspberries and whipped creme, and The Chocolate Fudge Surprise, dense, dark chocolate layers glorified with dark chocolate mousse and a rich layer of ganache with crushed English toffee.
Fantasy Frostings has done tons of celebrity weddings and its nice to see that they are still realistic and down to earth. Their pricing is affordable for any budget. They really work within your budget.
This was the best tasting cake I HAVE EVER had! Her other flavors are amazing also! It was really hard to pick! Our guests loved the cake so much, some wanted seconds! We love her cakes and will continue to order our cakes from Fantasy Frostings!
We wanted something different for our wedding ceremony. We didn't want the traditional string quartet, so when we found Brandt Jacobus we were thrilled! Brandt is a super talented Guitarist. He really took care of all of our questions into consideration and put together an amazing ceremony for us! It was unique and different. He plays so beautifully! If it wasn't for Brandt, our Spanish Theme wouldn't have been able to carry itself out.
Brandt made our ceremony so romantic and he really set the tone and feel for our ceremony. I highly recommend Brandt because, not only does he play amazingly, he is really professional and most importantly. he knows about all his equipment and how to use it. I have come across several guitarists or string quartets that dont know a thing about how to set up their equipment or even how to position the speakers to get the best sounds. Brandt is amazing and there is no one like him anywhere! I'm glad we found him and I hope this review helps all you Brides/Grooms out there looking for a unique Guitarist in Los Angeles! He knows his stuff and he's just great! Very nice and down to earth!
