Three Dresses & The Wedding of the Century {part 2}

May 11, 2010

Is your mind ready to be blown?! 

 Half way through the reception, Kestrin changed into a green vintage number. Made by Rebellion Dogs, Kestrin said: “It felt like I was wearing a ladybug tutu, an absolute dream.” She found it on a whim, just before the wedding, at Talun on Echo Park Blvd in LA..

Day 2 of the wedding started out early, at Palace Hotel, San Fransisco and after finding some cute vintage  pantaloons, she and photographer Noa embarked on an impromptu 10 minute boudoir sesh! They them got dressed up again in their glad rags and headed to the Day 2 reception which was held at Flora Grubb Gardens in San Francisco, an exquisite plant and tree store run by Jonathan’s older sister. About 300 guests attended.

Each guest was given a yellow or saffron-colored flag as they came in that Kestrin hand-made in the weeks before the wedding. “They created an aisle through the crowd, holding the flags aloft like a giant game of London Bridges.” Noa explains.

All the guests made a real effort, dressing in unusual, awesome and vintage attire. After the ceremony came dress numero three! it was designed by Sterling Capricio of Los Angeles. Kestrin said “I looked at his work and drew a picture of the dress I envisioned, something to make me look like Marie Antoinette on mescaline. When I returned to his shop the next week, there it was.”

Thanks again to the wonderful Noa for sharing these. I die.
