Hi everyone! I hope you're having a fantastic weekend! I've been playing it pretty low key and taking a much needed technology break. But I wanted to continue to share more wedding pics and the outfit details with you - so here are some of my faves of Jack and I and our wedding party.
I had my dress made by a local seamstress, after finding an amazing deal on 100% Italian Silk in the softest champagne ivory - regular $99 a metre on sale for $5 a metre. No joke! We worked together to come up with this design, with a sweetheart neckline, gathered box pleats, pockets and retro tea length. I love how simple but still sophisticated it turned out, very me! I paired it with an aqua green cashmere cardigan from J. Crew, a treat to myself with my Splurge group money. I made my hairpiece out of pieces of my grandma's wedding dress and wore my other grandma's vintage pearls. My cream beaded clutch was made in the 60's and I bought it at Ragpickers, a local vintage shop. I found the cream peep toe flats during one of my summer daytrips to Target for only $18. On my toes is Turquoise & Caicos by Essie.
On my sweetie? He chose to wear a black suit he already had - with a white shirt, turquoise plaid tie from Tip Top and turquoise Converse All-Stars. He topped it all off with a plaid fedora in a taupe colour with subtle turquoise lines running through it, that I picked up at TJ Maxx for $7.99!
Our wedding party was small but awesome! Jack chose his friend Johnny to stand up for him and had my sister Lindsay to be my maid of honour. My niece Hailey, her daughter, was our ring bearer - since in my world any girl can do a boy's job!
Johnny wore the same outfit as Jack, but without the hat. After picking out soft aqua twill fabric together, Lindsay made both hers and Hailey's dresses and topped them with cream cardigans. She is my sewing inspiration! I also made Hailey a rosette hairpiece out of my dress fabric. The girls picked their own shoes. I love how casual but still 'done up' we are - and doesn't the venue have the best backgrounds - love love the weathered wood barn!
Hope you have an amazing week friends!
