    We used the International String Trio, and they were awesome.  I highly recommend them.  You can hire them as a duo or single, I think--you should inquire. THey were fun, classy and have a great range more »

    I was also a video skeptic, but I got talked into it, and I'm glad.  I admit that the ceremony is not super exciting to re-watch, but I really enjoy watching everyone dance at the reception.  There's more »

    Estancia La Jolla is gorgeous.  Near a beach, but not on the beach.  Has a lovely pool too.

    good luck!

    We had Night Rhythm at our wedding and they were awesome.  They packed the dance floor, played just the right music, and sounded fabulous.  At the end of the night, after all of my vendors had really more »

    Elephant Walk (Porter Square) has a large basement area they can separate out and can work out a special menu for an event.  Don't know the total capacity though. more »

    I would be cautious with uplights.  I've seen it before where I felt it looked "cheesy", so it definitely depends on the match between the colors chosen and the venue/atmosphere.  Summer's lights look more »

    We did 1 per couple/party. But we didn't assign specific seats, just tables. I believe this is the technical difference between "place cards" (1 per person) and "escort cards" (1 per family).  Or mayb more »
