Sam + Jack’s elegant wedding at Ojai Valley Inn was style all the way!
I’m telling you, if you could dream up what a modern black tie wedding would look like at an outdoor venue in Southern California like Ojai Valley Inn, it still wouldn’t even come close to Sam + Jack’s wedding day! Gorgeous white roses in full bloom, hanging glass light fixtures, and lanterns and candles all around! It was so lush!
When the bride works as a bridal stylist, you know the gown is going to be good!
The literal day after Sam accepted Jack’s proposal, she began her search for her dream wedding gown, on Instagram of course!
Her first stop was to try on an Inbal Dror gown. But Sam was slightly put off because the gown was available by custom order only. Y’all, after that Sam, tried on 200 wedding dresses! No that’s not a typo! Wouldn’t you know it, even bridal stylists can be filled with decision fatigue! But as fate would have it, she came back to the Inbal Dror gown. Her stylist helped her reach out to the brand about the gown and she Facetimed directly with the designer who was in Israel at the time. How flipping amazing is that?! The designer live sketched the gown for Sam during their Facetime call. The result was a jaw-dropping gown that I could have photographed all day long! This gown had everything – flowy train, deep v-neck, shimmer, a bridal blazer to go with it.
Jack looked just as stylish standing next to his gorgeous bride! You are going to love his velour slippers. Seriously, get an up-close look when you scroll through their photos! The groomsmen were decked out in black tuxedos and the bridesmaids all got to pick out the gown silhouette of their choice, in a cool shade of slate blue! You have to see it all for yourself, get your scrolling fingers ready!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!
Stay inspired, love Jana!
