Kristi is the gold standard. She and her staff made our lives so much easier with her professionalism and attention to detail; nothing was overlooked. She truly did create the dream weekend we wanted (and then some!).

I cannot say enough good things about Heather. She's thoughtful, professional, and makes every job personal. Every time I look at her photos, it feels like the first time I see them. She's incredibly easy to work with and a lot of fun besides. Stop looking and hire her :)

We really lucked out with this venue -- the perfect combination of classic wine country scenery with a modern aesthetic. The staff went the extra mile for us and, perhaps most importantly, the wines are fantastic.

Sharla is the best in the business. For a bride that did not put a huge emphasis on flowers, she proved me completely wrong and blew me away. Her work is astounding and delicately elegant at the same time. Plus, she has the most delightful energy of near anyone I've met!

I knew they were fantastic because I didn't even know they were there. They captured all of the special, candid moments we didn't catch that day. We loved watching their footage after the fact.

People are still talking about the food. Park Avenue captures wine country cuisine. Their superlative staff pulled off a three course dinner for 150 people without a hitch. They also catered our rehearsal and day-after brunch, and hit a home run every time. Pricing was very reasonable, and they very accommodating.

I'll be honest -- I didn't want cake. Until we visited Patisserie Angelica. The cozy and personal feel won me over, and they have the rare mix of beautiful AND delicious cakes (you know, that don't taste like hairspray). They gave us four flavors and an incredible dessert bar. Our guests loved every bite!

Bianca is a champ! She runs her own shop and gives so much personal attention. Plus she's as creative as they come and extremely reasonable. I'd love to keep her a secret but she's just too good! She created the perfect theme for our invites that carried through the paper for the rest of the wedding.

I wanted to look like an enhanced version of myself on my wedding day -- Nicole delivered the polished, natural look I was going for. She knows exactly how to interpret what you're looking for, but also gives great (and honest) feedback. I've been seeing Nicole since I moved to L.A. six years ago, and my hair would be a wreck without her. She's currently with Nine Zero One in West Hollywood. She flew all the way up north just to do my hair and makeup. Enough said.

Dave was Kristi's recommendation, and we hit it off right away. He knew exactly what I was looking for. He's perfect for 60s, 70s, 80s music that everyone knows. Our guests were dancing the entire night!

I adored this dress when I saw it, but was worried about the lack of mobility with the shoulder piece. The amazing staff at Bella Bianca in Oakbrook, IL (near my hometown) called Ines' daughter, who graciously offered to make me a removable shoulder piece to complement a strapless version of the dress. Best of both!

I wore wedges for my ceremony and these cute and fun Kate Spade flats the rest of the day. Comfort is key, people. There are enough beautiful flats out there, trust me!

There's something so elegant about a cathedral-length veil. Bella Bianca even matched the lace trim to my dress. You just have to let it hang for a day or two before so it doesn't wrinkle.

I picked a handful of styles (from BHLDN, Jcrew, and Lela Rose) and let the girls choose their own (including dresses worn for another friend's wedding, just shortened). I think people appreciated being able to show a bit of personal style, while I could still control color palette and overall look.

Although everyone ended up looking great, I have to say our experience was a bit of a nightmare. A number of our groomsmen were given a hard time over tailoring and pricing, and we ended up having to beg Nordstrom to fix the alterations on Tim's suit a week prior (which they graciously did!).
