I am thrilled about the opportunity to share Myriah and Christopher’s wedding today on Once Wed. Bret Cole was kind enough to send over so many gorgeous images for me to share, and I had such a fun time last night picking through my favorites to feature today. The lovely bride, Myriah, generously agreed to put together a little guest blog feature to accompany the post. More from Myriah…
My husband, Christopher, is an environmental lawyer and I am a fashion designer (I’ve worked for Lela Rose, Ralph Lauren, and have recently started my own children’s wear line). We met almost three years ago in line at a pizza place in San Francisco, and knew immediately that we had met “the one”.
We went with a somewhat muted color palette that would blend with the natural wild flowers of the vineyard. The boys were in Navy blue J.Crew suits, with gray embroidered pocket squares (which I made). For my bridesmaid’s I designed and custom-made slate gray satin-faced organza gowns, with a ruffle collar, accented by a blush pink belt. I also made the flower girls dress, a cream colored tissue-weight linen, with a gray floral belt.
P.S. – Myriah’s beautiful wedding dress is made by Vera Wang. If you are interested in this specific style, we have a few for sale in the used wedding dresses section of Once Wed. So much more coming up next!

Featured Unique Elopement in Spain
Elopements have this unique ability to allow a couple to shake off the reigns of tradition and do whatever suits them best. In this event, captured by Meghan Kay Sadler, we love how the couple combined their elopement with their honeymoon, travelling through Spain without any particular plans, and enjoying it all the way.
