This just in!

Got hitched!

Not yet married! Don't look at the bride!

...Ok,now you can look.

On the bride (me, duh):
American Apparel leotard, sheer skirt, and petticoat. Flower from H&M and hair piece cut off dog's tutu and fastened with bobby-pin.

I was so thrilled to find my entire outfit at American Apparel, mostly because I really wanted this skirt! The fact that it is completely sheer made me a little cautious to wear it to my wedding, but with the help of my lovely sister-in-law, I found the perfect fix for the see-thru-ness. And just a tip, white leotards from American Apparel are also see-thru! I tried pasties, I tried white stickers, and in the end I just wore a white bra :/ Regardless, I was beyond happy with the way it all turned out. The whole outfit was so fun to wear and made me feel so lovely and unique, and what bride doesn't want to feel like that??

On the groom:
Custom made Thick As Thieves suit, vintage wool tie, American Apparel dress shirt, Lucchese boots. He put it all together and looked so fantastic :)

My best friend and Witness #1. Her name is Katherine, too!

My sister has the best camera. It takes lovely pictures of everyone all the time!

My sisters from, left to right, Beth and Maddie, and my niece, Tilly.

Trying to escape.

My husband, me, and our dog, Frida. She lacked grace, to say the least. She peed on her tutu and wouldn't stop pulling on her leash. Her tutu looked like a bird's nest by the end; it was so full of moss and twigs!

Oh Catie congrats! I'm so happy for you! It's so nice to see you did a no fuss, non 'traditional' wedding! Most brides seem so stressed out on their wedding day, but it just looks like you had a blast! You look beautiful! I'm inspired =)

aaaah! congrats!! You look so beautiful!

Cee said...

Congratulations! Both on getting married and for doing it exactly the way you wanted to :) I love that you took such an informal approach to the day- with my extended family, and particularly the extended family I married into, that simply wasn't possible. My wedding was wonderful in many, many ways, but it definitely wasn't the quiet affair I had envisioned :) I especially love that your whole bridal ensemble came from American Apparel. You look absolutely stunning, especially with the addition of the bright flower. Hope you're enjoying married life very much so far :)

Cee, we're planning a big party for August becuase I have a pretty large extended family too :/ The fact that we already took care of the ceremony should help tho!

I really adore your wedding outfit! normal wedding dresses are so glamorous boring and sissi-like (princess-like). yours is fashionable, simply cute and very unique. love it.
