Diamonds and Manolos Inspired this Elegant Wedding that LBR Carrie Bradshaw Would Approve Of (!!)
Excuse me, but I knew from the moment I saw these wedding photographs from Samantha Robshaw Photography that it was going to be special. But it wasn’t until April explained how one of her colors was Manolo Blue and diamonds and Manolos were her wedding theme (or as she puts it, “every girl’s dream”) that I realized just how special (read: fashionable) this wedding was going to be.
ICYMI, April has serious style and her October destination elopement with Richard exuded style at every turn.
You already know the theme for this elopement was diamonds and Manolos and Manolo Blue found its way to the color palette, but so did white and black. White and black is proving to be trending hard these days, bringing back classic vibes that can’t be beat.
Now April and Richard opted against flowers for their elopement, but they had their ceremony in a park in Rhode Island, so fall foliage was everywhere, which was what they wanted to enjoy anyway.
FASHION + BEAUTY
Getting wedding ready is always the most fun and even though it was a destination elopement, April found a way to maximize her fun — she used the time for a little impromptu boudoir session, which Samantha says was a theme for her season.
But once things turned serious, she slipped into her elegant and timeless Justin Alexander wedding gown (style: Dallas/88253) and her something blue Manolo Blahniks.
For her look, she wanted the coveted Old Hollywood style, which for her hair meant soft waves and for her makeup soft glam.
CEREMONY + RECEPTION
For April, her favorite memory came just after the ceremony. “After saying ‘I do’ I just stood back and took in the beauty of the park I grew up in as a child. It was the best feeling sharing that moment with my best friend, my husband.”
Later, they shared a romantic and special first dance a song April wrote for Richard, she titled Subtle.
FROM APRIL WITH LOVE
“Make your wedding day about you and your spouse. Eloping was incredible for us! We were completely stress-free and had the best time together, just us!”
