For my wedding suit, I wanted timeless elegance. Something classic, but also different enough that fit the 'Gatsby in the Woods' vibes we were going for.

I’m a sucker for blues and burgundies. That was the start of my path to the perfect suit. After countless hours on the search, we found Indochino. Thankfully they had a shop in Center City, so it made designing a custom suit super easy. Not to mention, it's also the ideal marriage between price point and quality. I ended up going with this teal/turquoise for the color of the suit. The fabric was luxe to the touch, warm for an outdoor autumn wedding, and changed colors depending on the light (which was fun). Pairing it with the burgundy vest was next level! It felt sophisticated and vintage.

It was not just another navy suit.
It was me & it was perfect.

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m pretty by the book. I often play it safe even when I don’t want to. In a way this suit was me holding true to my ideals, while showing the world a little more. That tiny spark or pop of personality. I didn’t want the suit to be too serious and I feel I accomplished that.

I am a sucker for a floral tie, so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to get one for the big day. However, I wasn't expecting it to be such a process to find one that matched the color scheme. After countless hours, and the help of the wifey, this one from Topshop was perfect.

Lastly was arguably the most important detail to finish the look. A timepiece, or as the youngsters call it, a pocket watch. My grandfather gave me a pocket watch when I was little. Though he could not be with us on our day, I wanted to honor him. On top of this, the watch had two bears, well one, and a cub. If you’re reading this, you most likely know our story, so I won’t bore you again with the details. It boils down to big bear and little bear. Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. Together forever. This watch was the best accent piece and my ever-present reminder to cherish my time with the ones I love.
