Our Wedding: My outfit details

The Dress: Lazaro LZ3207
I had visited 10+ bridal boutiques and tried on over 30 gowns before I found my wedding dress. Nothing I tried on felt like "the one" until I walked into Marcella's La Boutique and saw this Lazaro gown on display. I so confidently knew this dress was the one I had been searching high and low for before I even tried it on, and once I did, the deal was sealed! I love the delicate eyelash lace sweetheart neckline on the sheer Alencon lace bodice. The platinum sash bejeweled with opals and Swavorski crystals added sparkle, and the fit of the dress was impeccable.

The Shoes: Jimmy Choo 'Isabel' champagne glitter pump
When I was looking for wedding shoes, I wanted luxurious yet comfortable shoes, which is sometimes an oxymoron. But that is what I found in these Jimmy Choo pumps. The champagne glitter fabric is shimmery for a subtle glamour and the low heel made me feel like I wasn't wearing heels at all.

The Accessories: diamond earrings and handmade veil
My parents gifted me these stunningly intricate diamond earrings on my wedding day. Since my dress had a bejeweled sash, I wanted to keep the rest of the accessories minimal, and these earrings complemented the look without overdoing it. I wear these earrings on special occasions and whenever I see them, I always think of my parents' generous love throughout my whole life. I will cherish them forever.

I took a veil-making class and actually made my own veil! I just wanted a simple, classic chapel veil and it turned out exactly how I imagined and was so much more economical as well as sentimental.

Standing around Instagram-ing this photo while photobombing husband's test shots of the skyline during magic hour. It feels like spring, which means I'm bringing out my slew of colored denim with a vengeance, starting with this newly acquired pair by Rag & Bone. Just a casual outfit for date night to grab fancy pizza. Happy Friday!

Bar Sajor - Seattle, WA

I was excited to hear that Bar Sajor, owned by Matt Dillon of Sitka & Spruce and the Corson Building, was opening in Pioneer Square. We were married in this historical district of Seattle and I've always hoped that bars and restaurants would move into the old, brick buildings.

We came here the same night we shot this outfit post.

As the weather has gotten warmer, I've moved to lighter wines like rosé.

Loving the space and how they used a vintage sink as a wine cooler.

Tuna crudo with avocado, cilantro, and lime.

Shared half a chicken roasted in buttermilk with harissa, yogurt, and squash marmalade dipping sauces.

Side of kale with red chili.

Caramels as a sweet departing treat.

Gorgeous gold framed mirror I'd love to have in my home...
