My dress offered the perfect basic backdrop for me to do something big with my jewelry.  My necklaces were actually of two pieces, stacked one on top of the other.   My darling husband Mat was dressed in Christian Dior, inspired by the 50’s with a big collar and tight fitting pants that were just a little on the short side, purposely of course, to reveal the red & black stripped socks.

I love the draped lighting in the barn. Also, that necklace! I think very few people could pull that off, but she does it beautifully.

These shoes were featured on piperlime under wedding shoes for quite awhile. I kept almost buying them, but I’m getting married in a meadow and didn’t want my uber expensive shoes sinking into the dirt. :)

The guy reminded me of someone… Kept trying to find who until I read the invitation. Of course it’s Mat Kearney the singer! Great wedding, simple and all. Looks a lot like what my BF and I have in mind.
