Our wedding was just about everything we wanted it to be. We put our heart and soul into creating the wedding we really wanted. With the help, support, and patience of our loved ones, wedding party, and hired professionals- we had a wedding ceremony and reception that we all will cherish and remember.
Masen was recommended by another professional photographer. That alone was an indication that he's really good at what he does! I checked out his webiste, loved what is on there, and completed an online inquiry. I received a reply and began correspondence to set up a consultation. He was very flexible in scheduling a time that was convenient for us, since we were planning our wedding while not living in San Diego. From our first meeting, we loved his great personality and found that he was a great match for us. From beginning to end, he is very responsive to phone calls and emails. I can't emphasize enough how flexible he is and so willing to make sure you are happy with his work.
He has awesome energy and great vision. His work leaves you speechless. I really wanted to have pictures I could call my own, not the same pictures you tend to see on most photographers' websites. He gives you what you want, but still leads with his expertise. He is very professional, yet not stuffy at all. You won't want anyone else to photograph your special event after meeting Masen.
If you want someone who is fun- that's definitely what you will get for your engagement session and wedding day. By no means don't let the pricing intimidate you, his work is worth it. In my personal opinion you are getting bargain prices for such extraordinary masterpieces. Trust me, I did spend time searching for just the right photographer who would meet our needs and he was the only one who met every single criteria. I can't say enough about Masen. You'll feel the same way too! He's the best hands down..no need to look any further!

I found Events By Design online. They were quick to respond to my inquiry about the venue - Rancho Bernardo Courtyard. They happily scheduled an appointment that worked best for our availability. They were unlike other vendors who put the pressure on you to make your decision and book them immediately. They are always responsive via phone or email. They provided a lot of guidance from start to finish. There are no hidden costs with them. They are very honest and their prices are reasonable and worth every cent!
Everyone was very impressed by our selected venue, Rancho Bernardo Courtyard.
We booked our DJ through them as well since he is very experienced and is very familiar with working at the outdoor venue (staying within the limits of the noise ordinance for that area).
Events By Design offers many services and there is something for everyone. I highly recommend checking them out when planning your wedding.
DOKMAI SWUAI means pretty flowers and that is exactly what you get! They were highly recommended by my friend (whose sister got her wedding flowers through them). They are very creative, resourceful, and definitely give you 100% satisfaction guaranteed. I found it very easy to work with Mimi. She is very service-oriented, friendly and professional. She returns phone calls and emails immediately. She works with you throughout your wedding planning process.
The prices are reasonable. The flowers photographed well and made such an impression with everyone. No one would have ever guessed that I had a limited budget because all the flowers appeared just the same as those of high-priced florists. I recommend them in a heartbeat! I can't say enough about how flexible and patient Mimi is. You want your flowers to be perfect and they give you as close to perfection as possible. You won't be disappointed.
Initially I had a bad experience at David's Bridal the year before I began planning my wedding. I went to the Mission Valley store to shop for a dress and no one greeted me nor asked if I needed any assistance as I browsed through the store. I was completely ignored even as I walked towards the door to leave, no one approached me.
Over a year later when I was ready to purchase my dress, after no success finding something at two other bridal gown shops in the Mission Valley area- I went into David's Bridal Mission Valley store.
This time I was greeted with friendly service by bridal consultant Urzula. She helped me search for a dress without the pressure to buy something I didn't like (which was something I did not like about another bridal gown shop). I found my dress on a return visit. She helped me find a beautiful dress that made me feel and look like a bride the minute I tried it on and I bought it at a bargain price. Urzula was wonderful each time I called and came to the store. Urzula was very professional and sent me thank you notes for my initial visit to the store, one after the purchase of my dress, and I think another note after I got married. She followed up several times to check in with me about bridesmaids dresses. All of my bridesmaids and my matron of honor purchased their dresses through David's Bridal. All felt that the prices were reasonable and each looked stunning.
Alterations is what is costly.
The one thing that was an issue for me is that when I picked up my dress after my final fitting, it was supposed to be flawless instead it was missing beads and had a few loose ones(a bead check was already done) and there was a pen mark on it (it was already spot cleaned). This was days before my wedding and they resolved those issues in a timely manner and my dress was ready for my wedding day.
Rancho Bernardo Courtyard is a Spanish style courtyard that is a unique venue for a wedding and/or wedding reception. It's a somewhat hidden location in Rancho Bernardo that is surprisingly romantic and elegant, especially in the evening.
