Throwback Thursday:Our Wedding

One of my best style days, and best days in general, was my wedding.  It being my second kick at the can, I opted for simplicity over fuss, and calm over craziness.  My dress was made by a nice lady in Portland that I never met in person (our pics ended up in her blog, which was super cool), but I liked her “Audrey” dress sketch on etsy and sent her my measurements.  About a month later (with only days to spare), a dress arrived in the mail that matched the measurements I had sent, but not my body.  Oopsy.  I got it to a local seamstress and she took it in, just in time for us to drive to snowy Banff for the weekend.  It worked out perfectly: my headpiece was vintage, ordered from etsy as well.  My jewelry and shoes were picked up locally on the cheap ( I found well-priced Sherman earings!), the belt was from another dress I owned, and flowers were unneccesary (I thought, anyway) because we eloped and there was no aisle to walk down.

The day was perfect and relaxed, the way it could only be with no actual guests.  I did my own hair and make-up, and it was so nice not having any appointments or stress at all.  We ordered room service and got ready together, then met the photographer in the hotel lobby to snap some pics before the ceremony.  We got married on a snowy mountain lookout, with only an officiant, a photographer, and a paid witness.  It was a beautiful day, a beautiful ceremony, and we both feel like we couldn’t possibly have had a better wedding.
