I sent sketches of my gown to my dear friend Thea of Hushed Commotion
, and described the general vibe and materials I liked, opting for gold tones and a mix of soft and hard textures. I paired her custom crown with a pair of statement-making stud earrings from A.B. Ellie
which picked up the same metal tone and organic shapes in the crown. My veil was a gift from my friend Celeste of Celeste New York
, and I love how she scattered silk petals throughout its length.
I had ordered our custom 18k gold wedding bands from Holden
and went for a matte finish. We inscribed the insides of our rings with an ancient word "Omonoia" which means "of same mind" (we love history in our home! lol)
The overall effect blended nostalgia and modernity quite nicely, IMHO. Which is a lot like my style in all areas of life!
