Sarah and her assistant Scott were absolutely amazing. They captured the essence of our wedding day, and made the process of taking photos so easy and enjoyable. Sarah was available to answer questions in a timely manner, and gave great feed back and suggestions to make our wedding go so smoothly. Our wedding photos were absolutely breath taking, and I could not have asked for anything more. Mirror's Edge Photography was perfect in every way and I would recommend in a heart beat!!!
Armida was delightful to work with from start to finish. She arrived very early (11:00 am for a 6:00 dinner). She checked out the property and set her cooking gear up, carried in all her supplies, was descrete, quite yet friendly, organized and professional. I trusted her completely with an event that was a once in a lifetime 60th anniversary reception for my beloved parents. Armida served melted Brie cheese with an assortment of fruit and crackers for appetizers - which was delicious! Then we had prime rib and mango chicken, steamed veggies, scalloped potatoes, and more. Armida was an A+ Chef and hostess and server all in one. I highly recommend her for your next event. She is outstanding, and as she puts it, she will "take care of you." And, she does. She even cleans up thoroughly and quickly, and puts left overs in Ziploc bags for you. Thank you Armida, for a delicious, stress-free evening!
Reverend Simone Malboeuf did a great simple wedding ceremony on very short notice. It was just what we wanted. Jesse and Paola
This review is long overdue. Nina is AMAZING. She really is. Of all the people and vendors involved in my wedding she absolutely stood out as the most organized, meticulous, prompt, and "on top of things". She answered my questions before I had any (I know that sounds weird, but hire her and you'll know what I mean). She was just fantastic. Her customer service. Her positive attitude. Her drive and initiative; I promise you, if I ever know of an event or wedding in her area, I will make sure to recommend her. Here is just ONE example of how great she was to work with: The night before my wedding I decided I wanted flowers in my hair. (Yes, I really did that to her). And how did I let her know? I texted her. Yup didn't even call. (embarrassing for me to admit and please do not do that to her). She was able to accommodate and charged me a minimal amount. My hair was probably one of my favorite things about the wedding and the flowers overall were just perfect. Absolutely no complaints. The only regret I have is not having hired her husband for the DJ-ing services. If he is half as professional and on top of things as her, I am confident he would have done a great job. Thanks Nina!! I will never forget your help! Thank you for advice and severe patience with me :)
David was a extremely professional. He met with us at our venue prior to our wedding day to familiarize himself with the location, to make sure he knew what we wanted from him and to obtain any information needed. He was on time, professional and very respectful. David was definitely the right choice for our wedding reception.
I would just like to say that I was very satisfied and happy with Carolyn's work. She was very helpful, kind and ready to serve us the best she could. Her pictures are beautiful and pricing reasonable for what we needed. I would highly reccomend her photography service and I look forward to another time (possibly on my daughters wedding anniversary) to do another photo shoot for us. Thank you Carolyn for your service, your professionalusn and patience, you were a big help to us!
Pastor Mark was exactly what we were looking for and the words he said during our ceremony were exactly what we were looking for. We had a small, intimate last minute wedding at the Courthouse. Due to us deciding last minute, we didn't get a chance to talk to Pastor Mark a lot before the wedding, but he was there for us, he was on time, and he was extremely professional and kind. Wouldn't change a single thing... would definitely recommend in a heartbeat
Pastor Mike was a blessing and by far made our special wedding vow renewal ceremony everything that we expected and more! I feel so blessed and honored to have had him officiate our vows and be with us on our most special day! Thank you again Pastor Mike!!!!! Ron and Johna Heartz.
Selina was amazing! She did an outstanding job getting myself and 5 other women looking fabulous for my wedding. I am so lucky to have found her on thumbtack. I live in Texas so I had to plan my California wedding from another state. The whole process was very scary for me since I had to schedule vendors based on ratings from other customers. That's why I find it very important to give a true rating according to my experience. I can tell you that Selina is the best and I am very thankful that I found her because she made us all feel beautiful on the most important day of my life. She goes above and beyond what you ask of her!
Michael Taylor was selected as our Officiant for our wedding in San Luis Obispo County June of 2015.. From the initial contact until the conclusion of our Service we couldn't have made a better selection. He was not only professional, detail oriented, creative and caring, but went beyond what we could have imagined .. Michael was not only respectful but made us feel like we had nothing to worry about. He provided us with varied selections and choices for our custom ceremony. He calmed my nerves and made us feel like we were with a dear friend from the very beginning all the way through to the conclusion of the ceremony. Simply put, everything was picture perfect and don't believe anyone could have done better. I would proudly recommend Michael Taylor to be the Officiant at your wedding.
We chose Chad to DJ our wedding and couldn't be happier! He indulged our every request (and we had a LOT of them), he was an awesome MC and even came down to rev up the dance floor! He felt like part of the family by the end of the night. If I need a DJ for another event in the future I will go straight to Chad!
Platinum Peek Productions truly exceeded all of our expectations for our big day! They perfectly captured our wedding and all the emotions that came with it, and we will forever cherish that -Stephanie Perez
Will and Savannah were absolutely incredible to work with! They exceeded our expectations in every way imaginable. They are just the sweetest, most talented couple. They put such deep care into producing the most perfect wedding video for us. Everything from the way they coordinated with us to the way they operated on the big day to the editing, beautiful music (they wrote themselves!), and post production were handled with such great care and attention to detail. We are in love with our perfect wedding video. It will be the most amazing way to remember our special day, and we are so thankful we found this incredible couple. We would highly recommend them, and we're sure they are on their way to become the most sought after wedding videographers in the state!
Although it's been over 20 years since our wedding, I can remember Cal's beautiful contribution to it so vividly. He was filled with joy, humor, warmth, professionalism and guidance. Everything you need/want from someone who is officiating your wedding. He did not underwhelm at the alter, yet he did not over-perform either (if you've been to enough weddings you know what I mean). You could simply tell he was happy to be a part of our day, and he did what he could to make it special...make it memorable. Just makes me smile thinking about it.
Chyanne did my makeup for my wedding in July. It was a hot day, but she was so professional and made sure that my makeup was perfect for the entire ceremony. I felt like Kate Middleton. She also did my Mom's makeup (pictured below) and my 3 bridesmaids. I recommend her to all of my friends and family for any event. 5 stars! ✨
She is an absolute AMAZING photographer! Our engagement and wedding pictures were beautiful! Will be using her again for Spring Family pics and Senior pics next year!
The absolute best! Him and his wife did an incredible job not only photographing the best day of my life, but they also did an incredible job making us feel comfortable, natural and not stressed. They helped ease the flow of our wedding day by coordinating our pictures in a way where we didn’t feel rushed. After looking back at pictures during our ceremony and reception I catch myself saying “I didn’t even notice they took a pictures of this moment” they were like flys on the wall, capturing some incredible pictures that we will cherish forever! Thank you!
I got Goddess portraits from Lucinda. She came to my garden in Santa Barbara and we had the most fun and creative one hour together. She is gentle, nurturing and has a vision of you that you could not even imagine. My photos are beyond gorgeous. I love her creativity, her integrity, her attention to detail. I loved it so much, I gifted my sister a session with her and also booked her to shoot my wedding.
This review is way way way overdue.... Our wedding was last April! First off, so sorry it took this long to review such an exemplary professional. Off we go - I was a bit nervous, picking a hair/makeup professional I'd never been to before - because I was have a (more or less) destination wedding in Santa Ynez. I also couldn't get a trial done, due to distance... So obviously, I was a bit in the dark. Julie to the rescue! I found her on Thumbtack and inquired about a potential hairstyle/makeup look I was pondering for my wedding day. I should say, first off, I was originally planning on doing my own hair and makeup... but then after a few trial and error mishaps, I freaked out and needed to find someone fast. Julie put my mind at ease by declaring she would have no problem helping me accomplish the look I was going for and proceeded to direct me to her Instagram page, that of which illustrated examples of exactly what I wanted. Very last minute, my bridesmaids also enlisted her services, and she was extremely flexible in bringing in an assistant to help with all us girls. The day of, she took all my notes, noted my features, and found the perfect balance between what I was looking to accomplish and what would compliment me best. I'm so glad I ended up finding Julie for my special day, proof is in the pictures girl! Wish I had you around every day!
