We just got our wedding pictures back and I made sure to ask my amazing photographer, Albert, if he could make sure to get pictures of my outfit so you all could see who/what I was wearing.
So here was my OOTD on Nov 3, 2012. It was a very windy and cool day... and you definitely wouldn't have known.. you also would have never known that Hurricane Sandy had just passed through as well!
I wore a Monique Lhuillier lace gown. I picked it up at a Kleinfeld's Sample Sale! I was so lucky to find such a gem at a sale :)
My sash was custom made by Kacey H from Twisted Crystal - the design was EXACTLY what I was looking for and she was so careful and everything was so thoughtfully made. Each belt is handmade with a bajillion swarovski and pearly beads. So magical! Sashes are SO expensive, but she can help you fit your budget (by adding/taking out beads etc). Every penny gone to this sash was totally worth it! Thank you Kacey!! :)
My high heeled shoes are from Kate Spade. These babies added so much sparkly fun to my life and really made me feel like I was walking on a party. They are totally my style and were super comfortable!
When it was time to kick off my heels and change into more comfortable shoes, I wore these custom made shoes made by my husband! He surprised me with a pair of aldo flats and he took small swarovski pink crystals and glued them on the shoe one by one. He said one shoe had over 1500 crystals!!! Isn't he a keeper!?!!
My good friend Melissa Chiu Wang who is a fashion designer helped design and make this gorgeous removable piece. She knew that I sometimes feel a little bit self conscious about strapless dresses and didn't want to wear another dress since my wedding dress was a good chunk of money - so she helped to devise a plan to build this for me. I absolutely adored how romantic and comfortable it made me feel! AND i loved how it was removeable!
The necklace is a borrowed piece from my sister, who wore this custom made diamond necklace on her wedding day <3
Mel also made my veil which was beyond my wildest dreams. I told her how i loved scalloped detailing and how I loved lace, but I dont like when its so heavy looking. She delicately sewed a scalloped lace border that tapered off as it got closer to the top so it was just enough lace.
prismera. I showed her a picture of hair pins that I liked and she totally exceeded all my expectations by making this romantic, delicate and just enough fancy/bling piece.
My reception feather piece was made by WeeGardens. I wanted a blush colored hairpiece and thought a feather might add some fun!
velour lashes in you complete me! They are mink lashes that are my all time favorites!
As for my makeup - all of the makeup was done by me, so it was my every day makeup that I knew I loved:
Out of all foundations - expensive and cheap, I ended up going with the Revlon ColorStay Whipped foundation. Isn't that ironic?!
Shadows: Mac - naked lunch, blackberry, carbon
Eyeliner: dolly wink eyeliner
Concealer: cle de peau
