We LOVE working as a team!

Wedding at The Sunset Restaurant in Malibu. Here's what the bride and groom had to say:

"We originally found Debbie Fields of Floral Fields through our venue's list of vendors.  When we first sat down with her, we were impressed by her creative designs, as well as her calm, helpful guidance.  Her ideas for the design of the bouquets, chuppah, chandeliers, centerpieces, and the elaborate floral swag for the cake--all so creative, so elegant, so beautiful.  When I first saw everything at the wedding, I was just blown away by how beautiful everything was.  She did such a wonderful job, I'm so happy with the way everything looked.  

Debbie recommended her colleagues at Women of Weddings.  We met with Lori Vreeke of Pastries by Vreeke, and after talking with her, looking at photos of her beautiful cakes and tasting very generously-sized slices of several delicious cake flavors, we knew we wanted her to do our cake.  The cake was so beautiful, and tasted wonderful.  We had many comments from guests along the lines of "I never eat wedding cake, they're usually icky, but this is delicious.  Can I have another piece?"

Michele Spring of Mia Bella Weddings was our day-of coordinator, and also printed the menus, table numbers and place cards. "Day-of" is somewhat misleading, since she contacted all vendors well before the wedding to make sure everything ran smoothly. She has a warm, calming personality, and and kept me from freaking out about our officiant being quite late.  Because he was so late, things had to be juggled around at the last minute, and she kept it all under control.  She even helped me into my dress, and got the big 'ol bow in the back tied just right!  Additionally, Michele created the beautiful flourish design for the table numbers, menus, and place cards.  Everything was gorgeous, and the ink matched our table linen.  We had a lot of comments from guests about how elegant the menus were.

What did I like best about Women of Weddings?  Talent.  Each woman I worked with was just top-notch, best in her field.  And Personality.  You're working with these people during a very emotional time, and each woman was happy to be there, calm, and organized at the wedding.  Exactly what you want at a time like that!  I'm so glad I worked with Debbie, Lori and Michele to make my wedding so beautiful."  Karen & Robert, wed on April 18, 2009
