I used Golden Gate florist on a recommendation of a friend and was really happy with Jay (owner) as he squeezed me in for a consult and offered competitive prices. The flowers he delivered (to the house and church) were very nice. Sorry to hear your experience has not been so well, maybe you want to try contacting him again. My friend also had amazing centerpieces from there and she was really impressed with the pricing.

We used Rock Star Limo for bus transport, again on a recommendation from another friend and I would also highly recommend them.

If you are looking for a cake you should def. do a tasting at Fatuli’s in Newport (right next to the Newport Vineyards).

  • Wedding: June 2013

Hi! I’m an OceanCliff bride, too! My wedding isn’t until June 2013 so I’ve got a bit more planning and waiting than you do!

So far, we’ve booked the following vendors:

  • Gabrielle Marks Photography: super friendly, we loved her and hired her almost on-the-spot! She and her husband will be photographing the wedding and our sail the evening before
  • La Bella Musica (Emily Chen): ceremony music
  • Evenetfully Planned (Jamie Nelson): We’re from NJ so planning an out-of-state mini-destination wedding, we opted to hire Jamie as our DOC. Haven’t read one bad review about the woman. She’s worked at the OC so she knows it in and out. Looking forward to working with her.

And in two weeks, we start up quest for more vendors visiting DJs (Ramu and the Crew and All 4 U Music DJ), Florists (Flowerthyme and Toni Chandler), and Frank Camera as our wedding officiant. I’m very curious to hear the quotes from the florists – hoping it’s not too much of sticker shock!! For cake, we love goodies from It’s My Party but we want to stop in to Fatulli’s also. And eventually, I will deal with finding reasonably priced hotels for my guests (wishful thinking in Newport!). 
I’d love to hear any one else’s experiences with any of the vendors I’ve named above.

  • Wedding: June 2013

I’m getting married at OceanCliff too, also in June 2013 and I also live in NJ! I’m meeting with Toni Chandler tomorrow to discuss floral arrangements.  Of course I still have a lot of time but what i’m finding most difficult is affordable room blocks in the area and transportation since i’m not having my ceremony at OceanCliff. I’d also love know of any recommended DJs!
