SOMETHING BORROWED: Two vintage diamond bracelets.
SOMETHING BLUE: “We had the wedding date monogrammed into the underneath lining of the dress and I also carried a vintage handkerchief that we had my initials monogramed in blue – both the same color as my bridesmaid dresses (which were by Jenny Yoo in Mayan Blue – kind of a steely-grayish blue).”

SHOES: “I started in Jimmy Choos, then switched to cowboy boots about halfway through the reception.”

EARRINGS: Purchased at Bhldn, vintage-style crystal chandeliers with single pearl at the bottom.

“For the reception I took off my veil and added a champagne-colored Monique Lhuillier sash. it was simple and had a more matte than shiny finish. It complimented the dress’ slightly darker underlay perfectly!”
