The fashions!

Daniel worked with Al of Al's Attire to design his suit, which reflected his dapper English style perfectly. The jacket was modeled after a set of tails owned by his grandfather (also an exceptionally dapper chap), the slacks from his favorite pair of circa 1970's flares, and the vest from vintage menswear designs that Al has in his shop. The final suit looked like this: a navy blue cashmere wool blend, a white chalk windowpane on the pants, a moire sea foam blue-green tie, and a pocket square made from a floral Liberty fabric.

Erin and Sabrina's dresses (also made by Al's Attire), were inspired by 1950's vintage party dresses. They were made from deep turquoise and fuchsia dupioni silk with silk velvet sashes. Stashia's fabulous dress was made by her good friend Jessica Bobillot.

For every custom piece that Al's makes, they also make you a custom label. I designed these labels for each of my bridesmaids' dresses and for Daniel's suit.

We found these fabulous ceramic brooches on an Etsy shop called Poodle Breath -- the somewhat surreal woodland feel of these brooches was a perfect addition to the bridesmaid's attire.

Jennifer Behr is an amazing hair accessories designer who also happens to be a good friend. She designed the headband I wore, as well as the headbands and combs for each of the bridesmaids. We stopped by her studio in Brooklyn to play with her boxes and boxes of feathers, veiling, and other fantastic bits. I'm a child of the eighties, so I have a minor obsession with neon colors (as well as generally loving dramatic flair), so I was briefly obsessed with the idea of hand-dyed fuchsia feathers. In the end, I decided to go with a more subtle headband of hand cut feathers and rhinestones for a bit of twenties feel. (I did manage to sneak in a tiny bit of turquoise blue eyeliner, though!).
