McKenzie Powell | Reply

On second thought… Maybe the bride and groom both could just zip up to Seattle and model in an upcoming photoshoot. Hm??

Wowzer, that dress is something else. What a handsome couple and a beautiful wedding.

Ohhh you are all so kind. The lanterns are from Hoi An (Vietnam) but I’m sure they are very findable in any chinatown or online (search for ‘vietnamese lanterns’). I don’t know if the dress has a name, but it’s by Reem Acra from her 2008 collection (not bridal…eveningwear)

McKenzie, you don’t have to twist my arm to play dress up :)

I MUST know where those shoes are from! They are perfect for my June wedding…I love love love them! It’s all so stunning :)What a beautiful bride!

emily | Reply

Katie the shoes are manolo blahnik (d’orsay)…texture is a sort of a nubbly raw silk. super comfy, as these things go….

Tara | Reply

I was trying to hunt down that dress ever since I saw it on a Gossip Girl episode! It was my dream dress, but alas, I could not find it anywhere. Happy to see it on such a beautiful bride :)

I did find a dreamy Claire Pettibone as a replacement for my June wedding.

Do you have any info about the groom’s suit?

Kay | Reply

Wow! Both the bride and the dress are absolutely gorgeous :) Where did you buy this dress from? I’ve been searching on the net on where to buy this dress, but I can’t find anything :(

What a gorgeous couple! The bride is just stunning! I love her dress, especially the way the skirt drapes so elegantly. Love the bonfire on the lawn at the reception too!

where were the hankies printed? these are lovely ones the only ones i can find are quite tacky!

Jess | Reply

I have also been searching for this gown – it is incredible! Can you please let me know where you purchased it.

Julia Bensfield | Reply

Hi Emily,

Any chance you’d be open to selling your dress? It’s so stunning and hard to find online. Thought I’d give asking a shot!

Gina | Reply

I too have been searching for that gorgeous dress.. can you blame me? i’ll be keeping an eye on the comments for any info.

Robbin Montero | Reply

I just LOVE this dress and the pink shoes are fabulous! I had one of my brides wear the same shoes in gold…always one of my favorites!

I’d also love to know where I can get my hands on this dress. It’s been my dream dress for quite some time. Beautiful wedding!

emily | Reply

Dear all, your comments are so kind. For the vendor questions many of the details (with links) can be found here:


or here:

the dress was something of a serendipity. I’m afraid the shop I found it at has no more (it was purchased in February 2010 and even then I was surprised to find it, since it’s from Acra’s 2008 show)…..perhaps an online wedding dress resale shop? ebay?? fingers tightly crossed.

Barbara | Reply

I saw this wedding in the last issue of Pacific Weddings Magazine. It’s beautiful!

Danielle | Reply

Would you be interested in selling your gown?!

Hi Ladies,
I was searching through used wedding gowns today and see that the same dress shown here is for sale! https://www.oncewed.com/45672/used-wedding-dresses/size-8/olivia-wilde/

Thought someone might enjoy that if they have been searching for it.
