    A PERFECT OCCASION
    All went well. There was a problem with one of the mister fans. We called and they responded within the hour and fixed the problem before the event. They also were the only one's with up-front pricing which made it easy for us to budget being that we were doing most of the coordinating. Thanks to all involved.

    Perfectly Planned By Candida
    Candida was the best thing we ever did! She was EXTREMLY helpful and really took the stress out of planning.  Before Candida, we ran into some MAJOR problems with our venue and people we were working with. Once we decided to hire her, Candida took charge and handled all the madness that was on our plate.  She was sincere with us and sympathized with what we were going through. This really meant a lot to me and my husband.  Not only was she kind and sincere but she was confident and professional when working on our behalf.  We feel she went above and beyond working for us. As a result, she was able to address and fix the problems of our wedding!    If it wasn't for Candida, I'm convinced we would not have had our dream wedding. She really was amazing and allowed us to enjoy the process of planning.

    Perfectly Planned By Candida
    Everything seemed easy, and I did not feel stress about the wedding.  Everything was taken care of...above and beyond what i thought would really happen.

    Chris Richards Photography
    Chris Richards has the eye of an artist, with the work ethic and never-say-never attitude of an award-winning newspaper photographer -- which he, in fact, was. I worked with him at the Arizona Daily Star for many years, and on independent assignments afterward. Partly because of his photojournalism background, his photos are often detailed, up-close-and-personal, action-oriented shots. Chris has photographed rock stars, rodeo cowboys, crime victims and world-class athletes ... as well as lightning storms, racing greyhounds in mid-leap, brand-new babies, and coming-out quinceneras.  These days, people often seek Chris out as a wedding and family photographer. He does beautiful, romantic, traditional work, but is also known for behind-the-scenes  wedding photos, and off-beat portraits. (One of my fave family photos is of a sleeping infant nestled perfectly in a baseball catcher's mitt.) He's great at capturing the "little" details of a wedding -- handwritten vows on a slightly crumpled index card; close-ups of lush lace trim on a bridal veil; a bride wearing comfy tennis shoes beneath her wedding gown before the ceremony; or groomsmen cavorting afterward -- that others might miss. Good guy, great work. Highly recommended.

    STILLWELL-TWIGGS HOUSE
    It was great. Stillwell house is not only a beautiful setting for a wedding but they just made it very easy on us. The planning was very thorough and gave everyone great peace of mind. The food was very good and the staff was efficient and friendly. Kelly did a fantastic job of making sure things flowed smoothly during the ceremony and reception. Highly, highly recommend them!

    Perfectly Planned By Candida
    It was an utter disaster. First of all, the outside vendors: photographer, videographer and make-up artist kept emailing me "so, um, we've heard nothing. are we still on for the big day?" I clued Candida who said "oh, I emailed them all". Not a phone call to introduce herself, just a random email that would likely go into the SPAM folder since it was someone they had never spoken to before. This was MONTHS before the wedding. Then the week of, the same thing- all vendors reaching out to me saying "we still haven't heard" to the point where I had to call her and explain that this is simply not how business is done. I was far from a Bride-zilla, the way I see it a wedding day is a party for everyone and the honeymoon is really the reward for the couple. But as a business person, shelling out a decent amount of money, I couldn't believe her ineptitude. As for the people she referred: MUSIC/DJ: The DJ was awful. We explained that we are pretty open in music, but just really dislike Dave Matthews. He just wrote down Dave Matthews and literally played his stuff for probably 50% of the reception. I am not exaggerating. It became a big joke, since all of our friends knew we hated Dave Matthews so we just went with it. Hey, it was our wedding, we didn't want to have any drama. So we let it slide. But when it came time to introduce everyone, the DJ introduced my husband's father, who was our Best Man, as MY father. Such a crucial and yet simple detail- completely messed up. Totally offended both parents later on. CAKE: As for the cake, we told her we had a pretty big budget, yet she first had us meet with some cake decorator who works out of his house (which is illegal in AZ per the code, you must use a commercial kitchen) and the cake was awful. Even Candida admitted it. Just terrible. Think "boxed cake" but worse, so dry and flavorless. He had made it a few days before and then frozen it and it was only partially defrosted for our tasting. Then the one highly-rated bakery I asked her about she slammed and said they had on several occasions delivered to the wrong address, wrong wedding (now I wonder if it's because SHE is clearly poor with details). We ended up going with the Village Bakehouse and asking them to deal with us directly, and it went perfectly. FLORIST: The flowers came out amazing in the end, but only after the woman she had referred to us literally disappeared off the face of the Earth and Candida had to rush us in to work with someone new. It was beautiful in the end, but so stressful to get there. OFFICIANT: Because we wanted a non-denominational ceremony, and didn't want to have to join a church to get a Pastor to marry us, Candida referred us to the kindest man who does the funeral ceremonies for the Fire Department. He was so wonderful when we met with him casually at Starbucks to discuss details, but it turns out he suffered from extreme stage fright and every time we watch the video we can't help but laugh at how incredibly awkward he was, like he had never spoken at a wedding, flubbing our names, the details, etc. The day of the wedding, we had our ceremony at an adorable small chapel (San Pedro in the Old Fort Lowell neighborhood) and we had a start time of 6pm, but made it crystal clear we could wait a few minutes for any last minute arrivals. She was adamant about starting on time, and was so rude to the guests who showed up literally less than 5 minutes late, and kept pressuring us to start right on time. She completely spoiled the fun, casual vibe that we had hoped to. It was really unfortunate. Even a few people mentioned how awkward it was that she was standing over in the corner with the DJ the entire time, not helping the way you'd expect.We had a few snafus that she should have caught. Our reception was that the Westward Look, and in retrospect I realize we should  just let their event planners handle everything, but because we had a different location for ceremony and reception we thought it was necessary to have a planner. During the One last note, every time we met with her, she had her young son (I'm guessing age 4?) at her office. He was such a distraction and she was so bizarre i nhow she would just ignore him as he'd be screaming out from his corner (where he had a little tent and TV and toys) and then all of a sudden go discipline him. It was so uncomfortable. Now that I am a parent of a 3 year old, I understand how kids can be, and would a) never have my child there for business and b) I'd learn how to discipline my child properly so that it

    DESERT DIAMOND BANQUET
    Used to be very good but deteriorated significantly after 2011.  Went once in 2012 and then again in 2013 and the last meal was the last meal we plan to eat there.  The food quality was mediocre at best, some of it wasn't hot OR had sat under the heat lamp so long that it was like shoe leather.  Would not recommend them.

    Edible Arrangements
    My best friend in Seattle tried to order a fruit arrangement for my late husband's memorial service at my home.  The service was on Sunday, December 13, 2009.  At first they said they would deliver that day, but then advised my friend they don't deliver on Sundays.  They offered Saturday, but then said they couldn't guarantee that it would arrive Saturday; they offered Monday instead.  Since Monday was after the service, my friend canceled the order and her "ticket" was credited.
