The secret ingredient is always love!

Today’s couples are about personalization and experiences. Crystal and Joey love cooking, so we created the kitchen herb garden being a sense of storytelling to this styled shoot. With various shades of green to reflect the colors found in home garden herbs, a pop of femininity with blush, mauves and a statement blue (which happens to be the Pantone of 2020) which balances it with a masculine tone. A modern, delicate and romantic aesthetic featuring multiple varieties of herbs and plant life with a soft balance of color and tactile textures help provide a feeling of life and love.

Consider getting a custom suit for your wedding, not only will you be walking down the aisle in style, it will have a very special place in your heart each time you wear it.

Call me old fashion, but I love nothing more than to see a man in a nicely tailored suit. We sat down with John Park, CEO and Founder of Zeglio Custom Clothiers, and talked about my love for a dapper gentleman. I feel as does he, a nicely dressed man exudes confidence, strength and power when wearing a suit. Take a look for yourself, his posture is a little taller and his smirk a bit larger when your guy dresses up, especially when wearing a fine suit. You don’t necessarily need a dozen but a few of top quality suits would be a wise investment and always a great gift idea.

I know many businesses have gone to a more casual look, but be your own person, give yourself a daily boost of confidence and style with a more professional look.

Not all suits are created equally- Zeglio is known for their classy and top of the line designs, fabrics and tailoring.

The Four Most Important elements of a custom suit.

  1. The Fit– Brand doesn’t matter what so ever if the garment doesn’t fit you perfectly

  2. The Proportions– Part of the aesthetics and science of design, is giving your face and body a balanced look.( i.e. lapel width, 1st button location, length etc.)

  3. Quality of Construction– This speaks for itself and what makes it custom and unique.

  4. The Design– This element should make a statement about you, and make you feel confident wearing it. Look at personalizing the lining and selecting fabrics that talk to you.

How to purchase a custom suit.

♦ Call and Book an Appointment

♦ Decide on the different design elements, fabrics, type, details desired.

♦ 1st Fitting where you are measured, assess your posture and proportions, and try on several styles to see what looks best on your frame. Listen to the experts!

♦ Baste Fitting, where the suit is unfinished and adjusted on your body.

♦ Final Fitting where final adjustments are made to assure the perfect fit.

** Expect to pay for a custom suit $1500-$5000, but in my book, worth every penny. I would love to see more handsome men wearing their confidence in a suit on a daily basis.

Choosing a tux might just be the easiest wedding-related decision you’ll make. After all, it’s hard to go wrong with a suit that has changed so modestly in the past 120 years. In fact, if you compare today’s tuxedo with the one your father wore at his wedding, you’ll likely see only slight variations (provided dad didn’t wear a ruffled shirt). The single-breasted notch lapel tuxedo, is a classic look that never goes out of style. Searching for your own take on the traditional tux? From ties and vests to buttons and shoes, here’s the straight talk on your options, along with styles that best suit your groom’s silhouette.

TIE ONE ON

When it comes to ties there’s standard, and then there’s spectacular. While the classic bow tie will always be a perennial favorite, there are other options for grooms who choose to venture outside the norm.

One of the most popular styles, the four-in-hand, is similar to a standard business tie. Paired with a matching full-backed vest in a subtle pattern, a four-in-hand is the top choice.

JACKET REQUIRED

The key to a flattering tuxedo often lies in the jacket. The right one can whittle the waist, lengthen the torso, or add the appearance of broader shoulders. The most common jacket is single breasted with a shawl lapel. This look is perfect for both short and tall men with more of a stocky or husky appearance. The same jacket with a notched lapel would flatter a short, thin groom because the notch in the lapel gives the appearance of broader shoulders.

A double-breasted jacket is great for thinner men because the eyes are drawn to the two rows of buttons at
the midsection and gives the illusion of girth. With a double- breasted jacket, the shoulders can also be padded a bit to give the wearer the appearance of broader shoulders while still retaining the look of his trim waistline.

 

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN BLACK & WHITE


The color of your groom’s tuxedo is up to the two of you. Take into account the formality of your celebration, along with the time of day. If you’re planning an afternoon ceremony, a gray tuxedo with a stroller jacket is the standard look. A more casual celebration closer to evening might call for a white dinner jacket with black trousers and tie. A formal evening affair warrants the classic black tuxedo. Keep in mind, however, that traditions are just that and the two of you should choose the style and color that you want, no matter the time of day or the formality of the occasion.

FINISH THE LOOK

Finally, complete the formal look with matching socks and shoes. The guys’ socks should either be the same color as their shoes, or show some personality and match the colors in your wedding, which make for some great photo ops. Nowadays men are choosing less formal shoes and also showing personality with matching “Chucks” or “Toms.” But if needed, formal shoes can be rented from your formalwear company. Styles vary from slip-on versions with a parade shine to mock wingtips in classic black.

Lorimar Vineyards was the perfect setting for the romantic venue with lots of greenery for Lindsey and Pete. Their ceremony overlooked the stunning vineyards with picturesque mountains in the background. They loved the cool vibe of the reception on the barrel room lawn complete with market lights, fire pits and lots of room to dance.  They treasure the one on one, quiet time they got while taking photos in the orange groves next to the winery in an otherwise whirlwind of a day.
