frances baker + blooming leopold

Hey all. So here it is, the long-awaited dress + crown post. This is what I wore to my wedding, thanks to the lovely and talented Josie of Frances Baker and Lauren of Blooming Leopold. The dress is the Virgins dress-- hand-tailored to me by Josie-- found here, inspired by the prom dresses from The Virgin Suicides. And the flower crown was custom-made for me by Lauren. It all came out beautifully and I couldn't have asked for better. Thanks, ladies!

The wedding took place at Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles (in Highland Park). It's actually a museum of old historic LA homes that have been restored and turned into its own little neighborhood. You have to go and check it out for yourselves. They have guided tours with docents all decked out in period garb.

Photos by my talented friend (I have a lot of those, thankfully) Emma of HoneyHoney Photography.

As a surprise gift to my husband, I sang two songs at the reception: "Sea of Love" by Cat Power and "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. (Johnny's adorable nieces supplied the background vocals on "Home".) Another of my talented friends (and my housemate), Nick, played guitar for me. His band, Swiss Alps, is amazing!

solar eclipse of the heart

I hope you all got a chance to witness the partial eclipse yesterday. It was eery and strange. The pictures are unedited and you can see how different the light was. Lovely! You can also see how much of the sun was covered by the crescent shapes the shadows of leaves made. Also, we poked a hole in a piece of paper and held it up against a tree trunk and you can see the crescent shape there too. Science!
