The wicker lanterns are a great touch in the evening to give low light!

Hannah | Reply

I love love LOVE her reception dress. Any idea on who the designer is?

Lori | Reply

Temperly makes both gowns, dont they? I can’t find the ceremony dress anywhere… HELP! :(

Vanesaa | Reply

I also can’t find the ceremony dress- and not for lack of trying!

Tiffany @ TOAST | Reply

this wedding was so fabulous–thanks to everyone involved :) i had so much fun!

for all those ladies wondering, the hanging lanterns are a mix of the “big sur” lanterns by Roost, and the others are from Restoration Hardware.

the loaves of bread were custom baked to a small size for us by D’Angelo Bakery in downtown SB.

Both dresses are Temperley, the short reception dress is the Mini Adora from 2010 pre fall, and my ceremony dress style is called Long Natalya. They might remember it at the nyc store and be able to make one for you. Hopefully that helps!

Chandra - Oh Lovely Day | Reply

Gorgeous wedding, but the florals are my absolute favorite part. Just perfect!

Laura | Reply

Hi Eileen, would you consider selling your ceremony dress?

Leah | Reply
