My Wedding: Saturday Part 1
Our wedding programs had quotes all over them from our guests who gave us "words of wisdom" when they RSVPed. Plus, a fun sketch of me and Rachit I made!
Getting the invites right was such a process! Making them yourself is very satisfying and save money, but trying to reign in everyone's design preferences is so hard! I love gestural imagery nd water color, Rachit loves clean lines. In the end, I did a lot of water color and then used that to "fill" the geometric shapes. I also threw in some hand painted leaves to tie it all together. Melding the Hindu and Jewish symbology was tricky, but fun!
Left to right: a ring given to me long ago by a special elderly woman at my Synangogue / an heirloom ring from my mothers family / Rachit's hand crafted wedding band from Jewelsmith / My custom hand crafted rings from a designer in NYC
Custom earrings I made for myself / Badgley Mischka shoes that I redesigned with embellishment to match my headpiece
Rachit's custom suit from MySuit!
My dress is from my dear friend Rebecca Schoneveld, she helped me customize her "Gemma" gown by adding a sleeve, raising the lace neckline, and lowering the back.
My custom headpiece! I designed the silk flowers and had them made in NYC, and then of course I added lots of rustic detailing and gold!
My to-die-for bouquet from Lindsay Rae Design!
Even though we got married in NC, I knew the weather could be precarious, so I had a white blazer on hand! Fun to mix the modern with the vintage lace. Blazer is from Ann Taylor.
