My wedding was at my mom and stepdad’s house. It rained up until 2 hours, so despite my fears, we were able to have the ceremony and part of the cocktail hour in the backyard/on the deck. It started raining just as we were about to have dinner, so everyone moved inside. It was very lucky timing. Photos by the amazing Marilyn Brodwick of http://newmoonphotography.com/
My pearl-and-crystal necklace. The piece in the middle dangled down my back.
The rest of my jewelry – pearl bracelet and earrings (gifts from my MIL), a cocktail ring that was my paternal grandmother’s, and my wedding band that was my maternal grandmother’s:

These are gorgeous – I LOVE the necklace and dress together.
Also, I totally want one of those pomosas right now.
