Yes, you read that right. First, I am now married, and second, my dress is Madewell.
Honestly, everything happened pretty fast, but that’s the way we like it! I only had a couple of days to find a dress to wear for the ceremony – since everything I own at the moment is black – and I fell in love with this dress at first sight. And I know I will wear it a lot, which was a major qualification for a “wedding” dress at this point in my life.
We had a very simple ceremony with a judge in his chambers (hence the bad fluorescent lighting in the waiting room!), just the two of us, and Sharon taking pictures. Sharon also MADE my bouquet, isn’t it beautiful? And just my style 🙂
Neither Leo or I are the type to make a big fuss over weddings and we’d both been married before, which is why this may seem to have come out of no where – although we had been engaged for about 3 years!! To us, the most important part of our marriage started the day after the wedding, the wedding itself was just to make it “official.” Now, we can look forward to the rest of our lives together (I can’t wait!!)
(and I LOVE the Madewell dress!! notice the “mullet” style hemline…I also think it runs pretty big, mine is a size 8 – and I’m still a 10-12 generally)
