Our Wedding Day

2 September
Well, three months later and I’m finally sharing a few candid black and white wedding photos with you! 

A few details: We were married in the church I grew up going to and our reception took place at our country club across town. I wanted a very traditional, “vintage romantic” feel to the day, and went with all white flowers (a mix of roses, peonies and orchids) and lots of candles. It rained the entire day, which added to the theme perfectly. My bridesmaids wore J. Crew dresses and jewelry and my dress was Melissa Sweet. I wore my mom’s diamond earrings and a bird cage veil for my walk down the aisle and then later changed into Dannijo bling for the party! 

And of course I rocked leopard print Miu Miu heels and the boys wore matching socks!
We danced with close family and friends all night long and it really was the most magical day of my life.

  • It looks stunning, I love the last photo!

  • Oh my… Alicia! You look absolutely beautiful! What a gorgeous dress and you couldn’t look more happy! Congratulations, again!

  • I die over those Miu Mius and his leopard socks. That’s true love. <3
