In our latest Lookbook, we invite you to reconsider the traditional wedding day. Explore a wedding where artisan elements and heirloom details combine in a free-spirited outdoor celebration as precious as true love. A blessing of a couple’s bright future with a nod to tradition; something old, and something new. A rustic fairytale fantasy befitting of the first day of their “happily ever after”: this is The Faerie-Tale Wedding… Reimagined.
Reimagine your wedding dress.
Eschew the traditional voluminous white wedding gown for a subtly-printed silk maxi or an ethereal frock paired with boots. Lace, embroidery, pintucks, beading, and other dressmaker details nod to tradition, while unconventional silhouettes and fabrications flirt with rebellion. Break convention in a wedding dress that reflects your personality… be it rustic sophisticate or playful bohemian.

Reimagine your wedding hair and makeup.
On your big day, let your natural beauty shine. Keep makeup dewy and fresh-faced. Loose waves and messy braids with floral accents intertwined complete the romantic bohemian look.
Reimagine your wedding flowers.
Untamed and wild botanicals lend an unexpected element to wedding floral arrangements. We love the contrast of sweet, delicate blooms paired with earthy seed pods, nuts, grasses, and succulents. Bouquets and boutonnieres look fresh when done in seasonal flora with a free-form design. A flower crown, whether delicate or lush, completes the princess fantasy.
Reimagine your wedding food.
Instead of making wedding guests check “chicken” or “fish,” why not treat them to artisanal fare? Fresh, organic ingredients shine in a variety of farm-to-table dishes that your guests will appreciate for their wholesome flavor. As for the wedding cake, opt for quality over quantity with an artisanal confection. By experimenting with rustic garnishes, whimsical construction, hand-made toppers, and unique flavor combinations, your wedding cake becomes an expression of your idiosyncrasies as a couple.
Reimagine your wedding photos.
While a creditable wedding photographer is a must, additional photography options like a photo booth, a bowl of disposable cameras, and a dedicated hashtag for all of the selfies that wedding guests are sure to take guarantee that you’ll capture fun, impromptu moments. Candid vignettes will become the most cherished way to commemorate your faerie-tale day!
