We met with various florists and right away after meeting Bethany at SS knew that she was the perfect match. Her enthusiasm and understanding were perfect. She had great ideas right away, and I knew I could trust her to execute my vision!! We met in person once for the introductory meeting at her shop, which was great because then I knew she had all the resources. Then over the months up to the wedding we emailed back and forth on the ideas... She always assured me that everything would be just beautiful, and she was right! Once I had passed off all of my centerpiece goodies, she took over and executed perfectly. On the day of my wedding, I had all the normal nervous jitters I had heard about, but honestly - once I got to the venue and saw the beautiful flowers in mason jars hanging from the tree we were getting married under - I instantly relaxed. I knew at that moment that Splendid Sentiments (and my other vendors) were going to bring all of the visions in my head to reality. WE LOVED IT!!! Bethany and her team did an excellent job - listened to all of my wish list and made it even better. THANK YOU!
Holli / SOH was absolutely amazing for our wedding. I know that without her it would not have been as wonderful as it was. We met with Holli a few times, and emailed a bunch to get all of the detials in place. I am a major planner and control freak, but she is even crazier than me - which I loved! She goes over every single detail and lets you know exactly what to expect over the entire process. She handles Day of Ceremony coordinating herself and she is a PRO! PLUS - KEY IS THAT THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! Our guests continue to tell us how great the food was, and we totally agree. My fave was the tri-tip and mashed potato bar. YUM! Holli / SOH is a one-stop shop and they handle everything. It is so easy to work with her. AND - she has handled several events at Leo Carrillo Ranch and knows exactly how to execute. Her team was fantastic!!!
VG Donuts is in Cardiff. We worked with ken who made it easy to get what we wanted. VG is very affordable, delivered on time, and the cake matched the photo i gave them perfectly! And - most important, was delicious! our favorite was their carrot cake.
Riff Raff is located in Dana Point, but has worked multiple times before in Carlsbad. Abby the bassist is also our Jeweler and designed my engagement ring and wedding band! Riff Raff is a 5 piece band playing vintage gypsy jazz. They played acoustic for our ceremony and then plugged in for the cocktail hour. We love the music - adds a relaxing, classy vibe.
Tricia and Justin are very easy to work with and make you feel relaxed right away. We were so lucky to find them - their work is amazing and they get all the details, without stressing you out!
Love Love Love Ann! She did a fabulous job and listened to what I wanted. Loved having her around the day of - made it very fun. I also did a practice run, which is a great way to get to know her.
We had our May 2010 wedding here and loved every minute! The venue is stunning with lots of charm. It has the field of old California and whisks you away to another time. The peacocks make it even more special! The staff was great to work with and it met all of our goals. They always answered our questions and were very responsive. This place is a hidden gem and perfect for photographs! We had ~150 guests and the place more than accommodated us. We used Slice of Heaven catering, Splendid Sentiments Florist, Studio Duva photography, NR3 Video, The Mad Platter DJ and the Riff Raff Gypsy Jazz band. Everything went perfectly. We also had Five Star shuttles provide transportation to the hotel in Carlsbad Village. Everything was fantastic!
