Carol was lovely to work with! Her shop is located in the SF Gift Center & Jewelrymart which isn't normally open to the public so you'll need to call ahead to be put on the guest list. We went in with some very general ideas of what we wanted for our rings. She showed us different stones & settings and asked us questions to determine exactly what we wanted. She had the perfect stone & setting for my engagement ring and was able to size it and put it together for us in about an hour. We walked out that day with the engagement ring & the groom's wedding band. We also brought in a family heirloom ring with small diamonds we wanted to use for a new wedding band. She was able to have the new ring for us between 2-4 weeks later. She is really fun to work with and her prices are very reasonable!
Sara designed the cutest save the dates & thank you cards for us. All of our friends & family have raved about them. They were a great, personalized touch to our wedding stationary. Sara was wonderful to work with- very professional, quick and accommodating and best of all, she was willing to work within my budget. We are very pleased with her work and plan to use her again for baby & holiday stationary.
Cards & Pockets provided all the supplies for my DIY pocketfolds at a very reasonable price. You can order samples from them before placing a big order to test in your printer & check out the true color. They just opened a print shop and because I was bargain hunting, I asked for a quote & sample print. Their price for printing & cutting 1 invite & 3 inserts was so good, I placed the order the same day I got the estimate. Everything looked perfect and they even gave us 20 extra copies of each piece at no cost. Good customer service too.
They were great to work with. The guys all had a perfect fit and looked really sharp! They have a rent 4 or more tuxes, get the groom's tux free special which was a great way for us to save a little cash.
Natalie did makeup for me, the bridesmaids and the mother of the groom. She was flexible, personable and willing to travel to our venue. The only drawback is that she is a little hard to get a hold of but her rates are extremely reasonable and her work is amazing. We just got our photos and we all look very natural and beautiful.
Overall, we were wary of the bad reviews we had read about Gesinee's but they had a dress that I loved so we bought it from them. The alterations went very smoothly. I worked with Barbara from start to finish- she runs the alterations department but I was lucky enough to meet with her the first time I went in to look at dresses. She was not pushy and gave me the privacy I needed when changing. She was super nice and the groom's mom liked her so much that she bought her dress there too. I can't vouch for any other employees but Barbara was great. If you go, definitely request her.
Tom was fantastic! He's experienced, easy to work with, professional and has lots of great ideas to make your event truly unique. He really went above & beyond for us- he showed up at our rehearsal (& even stood in for our late officiant) and worked closely with our day of coordinator to give us the ceremony & reception we wanted. He played nearly every song we wanted to hear and did a great job of reading the crowd. We had lots of people tell us he was the best wedding DJ they'd ever experienced.
Kelly was amazing! She really went above and beyond for us. It was such a huge comfort to have her with us coordinating everything on the big day and she really helped out in the days leading up to the wedding too. She was patient with us as we went back & forth on decisions and provided gentle guidance and advice whenever we needed it. Everything turned out perfectly! Hire her! You won't be sorry!
We had a great experience with Katrina Rozelle- from the initial tasting to the beautiful & yummy cake on our wedding day. We worked directly with Katrina herself from start to finish. She was very professional and happily offered us a lower-cost option: we had a smaller 3-tiered cake with 2 additional sheet cakes. It cut the cost way down. The cake was delivered right on time and was simply stunning. Many guests told us it was the best cake they'd ever had!
We got the bridesmaid & flower girl dresses here basically for the reasonable prices. Each bridesmaid had to get simple alterations for the shoulders of their dress and the alterations only cost around $30. All the dresses came in very quickly- weeks before they were supposed to. Good experience overall though when I went here to try on bridal gowns, I was not impressed.
We were so lucky to have Lily Rose shoot our wedding! The photos are amazing and we are so
happy with them. Debbie was a pleasure to work with- she was calm, efficient and very unobtrusive. She brought along 2 other shooters and they were able to capture all the special
moments of our big day. We loved our engagement session too!
Before we hired Katherine, I met with several other florists who just didn't get my vision for
our big day. When I met with Katherine, we instantly clicked. She not only "got it" but started to build on my ideas and give suggestions. The flowers were one of my priorities and so I knew going in that it would be one of our biggest expenses. We definitely got what we paid for! The
bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces and ceremony flowers were fresh, beautiful and stunning! Katherine even gave us a few extras at no cost- she decorated our escort card and cake tables as a gift to us. I highly recommend Katherine for stunning & sophisticated flowers & decor. You won't be sorry!
Barbara, Pearl & the whole staff were wonderful! They went above & beyond to accommodate our guests and the rooms were immaculate. They serve a free breakfast every morning and have free wifi, which were huge selling points for us when considering our room block for out of town guests. They also gave us a very reasonable discounted rate for the room block. Pearl was especially helpful in giving out directions and passing out our out of town bags. On the morning after the wedding, they opened up the conference room so we could have a private breakfast with our guests. I highly recommend!
We worked with Alisa, who was accommodating but very hard to get a hold of. It took a long time to get email responses or phone calls returned. Other than that, the club was a beautiful place to have our wedding. The grand mansion is stunning and the garden area is very charming. The food was very good (though a little pricey) and kids under 5 aren't included in your final head count. It was nice that the club handled our rentals for us (arch & ceremony chairs). Be aware that your event must be sponsored by a club member and the club has specific requirements for attire (no jeans or hats) & photography (not on the golf course).There is no site fee- you only pay for catering & extras (like valet, bar, etc).
