Kaus Photography Video & DJ
I hate the fact that a person (bridezilla... you've seen the shows) or a competitor can log in and try to destroy a business and reputation of that business. In fact the party doesn't even have to use their real name and didn't state the facts correctly.I better not use her real name or the name of her father, however the facts are these. This bride was very demanding up front which I don't mind at all. I was led to believe up front her Father possibly wasn't even going to show up at the wedding (probably gave me this information as a lie so they could try to get a refund after the fact.) At any rate the wedding was a great reception and we did work with the bride and groom and they even came up with a couple of really cool ideas which we did and they went well.Her Father did in fact approach me about doing an impromptu gag speech which I sent out my assistant to purchase what he needed in order to do his thing. By the time it came time for her Fathers speech he backed out and decided to blame me. The brides Father's brother (unless he wants to go on record lying) was a witness as to how hard and all of the effort I put into making his speech and help him get over his nervousness to make his speech special as it should have been. I believe that he eventually got drunk and then turned bitter towards me which is totally unfair.The reason DJ, Caterers and ALL professional wedding vendors (or any other professional for that fact) uses timelines is to make sure that everything that is asked for and planned goes of smoothly. In this case this was something that was added just moments before the reception started and we didn't have the props and sound effects as this was something I've never had requested in all of my 25+ years in business. I have Thousands of satisfied clients and the only complaints I had ever received we if I refused to do something Illegal or immoral. Am I perfect? Not by a long shot and I don't know anyone else who is. However my clients (except the one's who want to try to rip you off or destroy your business) will tell you that I work harder than everyone else to make your day a special day.On another note This Bride (and again I wish I could post her real name as well as her husbands and fathers. I'm sure that they would find a way to sue me for exposing the type of people they really are) had discouraged me from ever wanting to work with a bride or wedding couple again. There have been several weddings I've lost due to their outlandish claims and posts over the years. Good for them I don't believe in suing people as I believe that God has a reason for everything and will ultimately take care of them on judgement day.What hurt the most is that I never thought I'd lose my love for performing weddings. Whether it be Photography, Video or DJ services. Also the many bride and grooms who could have experienced our outstanding service.So to E.B. and her father, I don't know what to say

Taste Of Morocco
When we drove up, we almost turned around and left. Let's face it, it doesn't look like much from the parking lot and there was nobody in the restaurant when we arrived except the owner, on a Saturday evening at 6:30 no less.We are so glad that we walked in. This mom-and-pop place is something very, very special. The owner is passionate and proud of his restaurant and food and eager to show you what Moroccan food is all about. He will answer any question and will provide you with video/photos of what it looks like. This kind of service and love for product and culture is very rare and much appreciated. The prices are excellent. If you want more food, just order it: at $8.99 to $10.99 per entree you aren't breaking the bank to tack on an extra one. Remember these are Moroccan portions, not the stuff-the-pig portions we ordinarly eat in the States.We orderded to-go which was decided before we walked in the door due to time constraints. While we were waiting, the owner gave us glasses of the best sweet mint tea my wife and I have ever had. Incredible and served over a large mint sprig in decorative glasses from a silver teapot. After our food was ready, we spoke with the owner for a little while and grabbed a package of biscotti.When we got home, we were treated to a spread of food that was delicious and satisfying. The "Char-Grilled Combo Feast" was more than adequate in size per person with three pieces of beef kefta (like elongated meatballs), four cut pieces of grilled chicken, two soft potato maakouda (think fried plantain, only potato instead), homemade hummus, a salad with delicious cucumber dressing, and a nice dense grilled pita. I finished mine, but my wife could not finish hers. Everything was delicious and, since we had not had Moroccan food before, we were pleasantly surprised by the tastes and textures we experienced. About the only thing we thought might be improved was to add a little more salt to the hummus, though that is our taste from eating packaged hummus and may not be the "authentic" way to prepare it. For dessert we had the biscotti which was out of this world! Very flavorful and not too hard with just enough anise to add flavor but not too much to make it overwhelming. My wife said that it might be the best biscotti she had ever had.Next time we plan to eat at the restaurant to experience tajine dining and drink more mint tea. This is the kind of place run by wonderful people that deserves to thrive and grow from humble beginnings into something greater so definitely give it a chance.

Just a moment...
