Shift Local Wedding Edition: Four Months Away!

As of yesterday, we are four months away from our big day so as you can imagine, it’s been pretty hectic.  Here’s an update:

  • We have a LARGE wedding party! I know it’s a little nuts but we have 13 bridesmaids and 13 groomsmen.  It’s a mix of family (my sisters and a couple of cousins) and friends ranging from elementary school to law school.  We’re so thankful to have our best friends’ support throughout this entire process…thanks to all of you for all your help!
  • We booked our caterer! We’re so excited to work with Amanda and Chase of Simply Delicious.  We picked them because we really connected with the husband and wife team and their “philosophy on food is that it should be local, organic when possible, sustainable and of course, delicious.”
  • We’re excited to work with Beaulah’s Bean Truck, one of the 22 cafes you can use your Indie Coffee Passport-East Bay on to provide coffee for our guests.
  • We took our first set of engagement photos with our favorite photographer Allan Mendez who was also one of the judges for our 2014 PIC Oakland Contest.  Here’s a little sneak peak:
