Powerhouse wedding blog Style Me Pretty published our wedding today (that’s actually a really funny phrase when I think about it), which was a total thrill. Not only did I troll the site for frequent inspiration when planning, but seeing the pictures again lets me revisit what was such a fun day. And I get to see my dress again, which I really, really loved wearing. (It’s now in an archival box after its J. Scheer cleaning, which means I get to check on it, but not wear it.) I bought it off the racks at Barneys, after a long day of bridal salon hopping with Kyung: If you’ve gone through the process, or are going through the process, you know how hard it can be to find a dress that feels like you, or that a friend of a friend of a friend hasn’t worn. This one, made by Nina Ricci, just jumped out at me, and it was hanging in my closet that day (also, it required almost no tailoring, which seems to be an endless process with most wedding gowns). Beyond the fact that I thought it was really pretty, it was cut from linen and lace (and thus, super lightweight) and I could move around (and eat). It just felt right, though it was too fitted to allow me to ride in on a horse, which was the original concept. (Though Lindzi from The Bachelor’s arrival would have retroactively ruined that anyway.)
The wedding was also a pretty clear homage to Pendleton, because I’ve loved Pendleton for as long as I can remember. As a Montana girl, their trading blankets were pretty much it when I was growing up. The tablescapes made up the stripes of their Glacier blanket (there was a red table, a yellow table, a green table, and a black table). Dorky, maybe, but I think it worked! (All the pieces I found for it on eBay and Etsy are now in our kitchen, which you can see here).
