Real wedding: Grace + Alex

hand lettered wedding invitation

Can you believe all the flowers & invitations for this wedding were DIY’d?  Could have fooled me!  Its all done to perfection.

The inspiration for my wedding was in line with my style that’s minimalistic with a touch of something special. For example, my all over lace wedding dress was simple yet its long train gave it more of a personality and drama. My accessories were simple yet with a twist like my pearl Dior Tribal Earrings; Pearls are so classic yet the asymmetric design created a bold effect. My simple Miu Miu strap sandals were classic yet with a twist with all over gold glitter. The colors were blush, gold, with neutrals.

My bridesmaids and I made the bouquets, boutonnieres, center pieces, garlands, place cards, cake topper, and wedding favors. I was not happy with the colors of the flowers because they were not what we thought we had ordered but I think we made it work (shout out to Jane Wynings at Wholefoods though, she was super helpful)! One of my best friends Grace Song who is super talented also designed our beautiful invitations, programs, and menus! I say we touched every part of the wedding with our special touches!

I think the most vivid memories from the wedding day was when I was walking down the aisle with my dad that day. I felt so overwhelmed at the thought of being married first of all to this perfect man I had thought I would never meet, but being surrounded by friends and family who love us witnessing this beautiful moment was overwhelmingly wonderful. The day turned out to be beautiful, it had rained that morning so the sky was clear, the sun was warm, the breeze felt so soft, and it was just a picture perfect day.
