As for the menswear, we had loosely decided on grey (and actually based the entire color palette around it!), so of course Ryan recently announced that he thinks he actually wants to wear black. Go figure. Black works, and we will be able to tie in the color palette through the ties, but I can't seem to find any ties that we like! We've looked both online and in stores, but have been unsuccessful thus far. Ryan keeps trying to tell me to "let it to him" - yeah right! If it were left to him, we'd be looking for suits and ties the week of the wedding! I regularly follow Style Me Pretty and have actually started asking where ties that I like came from - so if you are reading this and had success with colorful ties, let me know where!
We are coming up to six months out, and we've actually booked all of our vendors! They are:
Venue - Saddlerock Ranch
Caterer - The Food Matters
Invitations/Calligraphy - Laura Hooper Calligraphy (of course!)
Cake - Susiecakes
Photographer - Steve Steinhardt
Videographer - Aquavivus
Florist - Holly Flora
Bride's stylist - Fiore Beauty
BM's & Moms - Beauty by Grace
Rentals - Town & Country
DJ - Dash Entertainment
Ceremony Musicians - Ace of Hearts
Rehearsal Dinner - Wine Cellar at Westlake Village Inn
And MOST importantly is the team at Beth Helmstetter Events pulling them all together! Now that we have the outline, I'm looking forward to figuring all of the details leading up to the big day.
