{outfit} An Unusual Celebration

My brother got married last month in a small backyard ceremony. He had originally planned a larger event at a venue but he and his wife decided to postpone that until next year and do an intimate event at our parent's house this year. It was our immediate family, the wedding party, a couple of his friends and my Grandparents (which I was a little weary of.)

I've felt weird about posting this outfit because of current circumstances, but it has been over a month and no one in attendance got sick so I think we were successful in keeping to current protocols. My Mom made masks out of fancy fabric to match the decor on the tables and we tried to keep to our small bubbles of safety.


I bought this dress in June when I was still in wishful thinking mode that we'd be able to have the real wedding. But I guess the silver lining is I get to wear it again next year! This time I wore it with the Nicholas Kirkwood heels I wore for my own wedding, a necklace handed down to me from my Grandma (which I also wore to my wedding) and my cute pink ostrich Marc Jacobs bag. The bag was pretty much just a prop for these photos since I didn't actually need it.

  3. Such a beautiful maxi dress - it's great you will be able to wear it again for the big party when things are safer! Congrats to your hubby too! :) We are allowed bigger weddings here but strangely only the bride and groom are able to dance, haha. It will be nice when things get back to more normality soon!

    Hope you are having a nice weekend :)

  5. What a beautiful outfit, love the details on those shoes! So nice you could still have your celebration, making some matching masks is such a great idea! I've also created few to go with my outfits instead of those medical ones.
