Halfway to the Wedding: Vendor Update

There are now 6 months to go until my wonderful fiancé and I say "I do"! We have made lots of progress over the last few months, including hiring the majority of our wedding vendors. Today I want to share a little bit about some of the people who I highly recommend!

We chose Stephen because his photos have a beautifully unique artistic quality to them that both Justin and I (as photographers ourselves) were very impressed by. Stephen has the ability to take the photos that every bride and groom asks for and turn them into a piece of art. That was very important to us in the person who shot our wedding, and Stephen fit the bill perfectly! Here are some of his photos...

Flowers & Day-Of Coordination: Savvy Flowers

Andie of Savvy Flowers and events will be doing both our flowers and day-of coordination. We were very impressed with her impressive arrangements, attention to detail and overall professionalism. I had very specific floral requests that not every florist was able to work with, but Andie pulled out all the stops. She will be able to give me exactly what I want even though I am having a December wedding and all the flowers I was hoping for are not in exactly in season. You've got to love a vendor who can give you exactly what you want without breaking the bank! Here are some photos of her work...

Music: DJ IG from REDshoe LA

I've worked with REDshoe LA several times at the weddings I've done with Fresh Events Company, and let me just tell you... they are phenomenal. Definitely the best wedding DJ's I've ever had the pleasure to work with. They don't just play your average cheesy wedding music. Everything they do is fresh, mixed live, and sets the perfect vibe for the exact wedding you want. I am thrilled that Ian was up to the task of spinning at my wedding! With Justin and I being the music junkies that we are, we had to have the best... and let me just tell you, REDshoe LA is the best!

I've been working with Julie Sepulveda to come up with the perfect cake design for my wedding. This girl knows cake! She has a cream cheese frosting recipe that is to die for. She's done multiple tastings for us for free and her cake is some of the best I've ever tasted! I can't wait to taste the beautiful confectionary creation that she makes for my wedding!
