Makeup Artist on the Go
Walnut Grove, ca
Wedding Day Beauty

I am getting married in August, 2010. I had been looking for a makeup artist for my engagement photos and for my wedding, since I am horrible with makeup. I had read that the airbrush makeup is much better than traditional makeup, so I did a google search for a makeup artist. There were a few that looked good, but they were so expensive. I didn't want to spend $1,000 just on makeup for myself and my three bridesmaids. I then found Kirsten's website and sent an email inquiry. She did the airbrush makeup and her price is very reasonable. I also like the photos she had on her website. Everyone looked amazing and natural. That is exactly was I was looking for. I had quickly signed up for her to do my makeup for my engagement shoot.

Let me just say this, she is beyond talented. I stupidly decided to try the spray tan right before my engagement shoot. I told the lady at the tanning place that I just needed a light tan just to get rid of the tan lines. I didn't want to be too dark. Of course, I come out looking orange. Kirsten was so amazing with my makeup. She took out most of the orange and I looked great for my photos. My photographer asked me if I had done my makeup and I told her that I had a makeup artist do my makeup. She told me that I better book my makeup artist for my wedding because she said my makeup was fantastic, especially in the photos. I am so happy to have her doing my makeup on my wedding day.

If you are looking for amazing talent and at a decent price then you NEED to book her!

Paradiso Foto
San Diego, CA

I absolutely love Paradiso Foto! I went to an art school and Photography was my passion. I will be getting married in August, 2010 and I needed to find photographers. Photography was the most important thing to me about the wedding and I have very high standards. I spend a good 3 days looking at hundreds of websites for wedding photographers. Out of those 100's I found maybe 20 that I felt would meet my standards and would not cost me $8,000. I emailed this place and Michael called me back with in 24 hours to set up a meeting. After meeting Michael and Pola and seeing more of Michael's work, I knew they would be the perfect photographers. We recently had our engagement photos taken and are more than happy with how they turned out. My fiance and I cannot stop telling people about our photographers!

Michael and Pola are amazing photographers and the price is outstanding! They are truly talented and you would be extremely happy with them!

We cannot stress how important it is to click with your vendors. It made a huge difference the day of the wedding and make things fun and stress free! Michael and Pola do amazing work and they are both so dedicated to their work. You can truly see the passion they both have for photography and for making you happy. They don't act like some photographers where they know best and do what they want. Michael and Pola are willing to get any shot you want and to make you feel happy and relaxed. They got all of the shots we wanted and so much more. On a bonus side, Pola will make sure you are looking great throughout the night! She has everything! We couldn't have been happier with them! You honestly will not find a better deal. The quality of their work is superb!

I had a great experience with getting my dress. Meghan was so helpful and helped me find my perfect dress! My mom and I went in twice and just couldn't find the "it" dress. Meghan then asked what styles we were liking at the other stores and we showed her some pictures. She went into the back and pick out the perfect dress all within my budget. She knows what will look good on you and is very patient! You will not have a more pleasant dress shopping experience with anyone else.

My veil was a different story. We ordered the veil and I was told it was to come in July, my wedding was in August. The veil came in the night before my wedding. That was not something I needed to deal with right before my wedding. I would have given them 5 stars if it wasn't for the veil issue.

Meghan was amazing though. Ask for Meghan if you go here!

Rolls Livery
San Diego, CA

My husband is a huge car lover. He's in the Navy, so I surprised him by renting the limo. He LOVED that we were in the Rolls limo! The service was so good and it was nice to finally relax and have a glass of champagne before we had to go to the reception. We could not have asked for a better limo or service!!!

Gentleman's Tux Club
San Diego, CA

Everyone here is so helpful and nice. My husband was in a wedding last year that used a chain tux place. There were so many nightmares, up to the day of the wedding. We knew we did not want to deal with that so we tried to find a local place. We could not have been happier. All of the tuxes fit and the staff were a joy to be around. My dad even bought a partial suit here and he loved John and the service that we got. The prices are amazing as well! THANK YOU!!!

My cake was more beautiful than I imagined! We had a whipped cream frosting and it was so good. Everyone had a piece, even people who normally don't like sweets or have wedding cake. The cake was so light and refreshing. We had an outdoor wedding in August, and the cake held up well! They were very reasonable too. You could not get the serivce and great tasting cakes anywhere else!!!

Bettina's Custom Catering
San Diego, CA

We love Bettina's! Beverly and Allison were so helpful during our engagement, especially when I would call with the occasional freakouts! My husband and I love the food. Mark does an amazing job!! All of our guests could not stop talking about the food and the service and this was even a few weeks after the wedding. Most people don't remember the food the day after the wedding, let alone a few weeks after the event! The price was affordable as well. The servers and bartenders were efficent and so much fun! They truly helped our wedding be the perfect wedding!!

Party Production Rentals
Chula Vista, CA

My catering company (Bettina's Catering) used the Party Production Rentals for everything for my outdoor wedding. I met the owner of this company along with my caterers a week before my wedding and he was so on top of everything. He knew what I wanted and was able to make some good suggestions. He was so easy to deal with and nice! The owner and his crew came the day before the wedding to set everything up. He was fast and everything looked amazing! I was so impressed with how the reception looked. This is an excellent company to work with and their prices are very reasonable! I highly recommend them!

I hired Soct to play Spanish Guitar during the cocktail hour of my wedding. I unfortunately did not get to hear him play due to photos, but everyone loved him. People told me that the music he played could not have set the mood of the wedding more perfectly. The owner of the house said no music on the iPod could have done what Scot did. From the pictures I saw, he was dressed very professionally and the overall look of the equipment was perfect. I am so happy that we decided to hire Scot and I highly recommend him!

I have known Adam for awhile. He has been the DJ at various events my mom has been apart of. When I got engaged, I immediately called Adam to see if he was available. He gets a good feeling of the crowd and adjusts his music to what people want to dance to. There were always people on the dance floor. His volumne of his music was perfect. He was great when the schedule of events had to be changed last minute and he just wants to make sure you are having a good time. You will be happy and relaxed having him DJ your event.

Photobooth Now
San Diego, CA

I hired Photobooth Now for my wedding in August. I am so happy we hired them!!! The photobooth was a big hit at the wedding. It helped all of our guests get into a fun mood. We used the photobooth pictures as our guest book. Our guests got in the booth, took the pictures and were given one copy to take home and the other copy went into our guest book and then the guest would write something to us. The company provided 2 attendants were amazing. They were so helpful in guiding our guest so they could get the most fun out of the booth. My husband and I love looking at our guest book. Your guests will definitely take some great photos. Since our guests were able to take a copy home, we made that our guest favor. Weeks after the wedding, people were still talking about how much fun the wedding was and how much they enjoyed the photobooth. This is worth the money, especially since you can incorporate your guest favor and give your guests something they will actually enjoy! I highly recommend this company!
