great gatsby garden party wedding

Last summer, I posted this about my dear friend J's gatsby themed wedding.
I know, I know....it's been almost a year since the big event.
 
I did promise, however, that I'd post an update to share the outfit that I ended up wearing. Many of you sent some great suggestions for potential roaring 20's dresses. In the end, a few of my real life friends ended up finding this dress online...and on sale. 
 
Better late than never...here's the dress and the wedding recap. 
 
The wedding was in Sonoma. 
The winery was quaint and romantic.
The outfits were amazing.
The food was delicious.
The evening was magical. 
 
My closest girlfriends from college were in attendance as well as some of J's friends that I've met in San Francisco over the years. I also got to meet J's husband for the first time and share in their very special occasion.
 
It was simply wonderful.

What is your favorite wedding or event theme?

What a fun idea! Looks like they pulled it off well and I like the twist on dinner and dancing first and then the ceremony!!

This is the absolute cutest! It looks like it was such a fun time. I wish I had the creativity (or patience) to do something like that!

How fun! Your dress was perfect! :) I've never seen a Gatsby themed wedding, but I love it!

You look wonderfully tan at this event! As an aside, I always thought "The Great Gatsby" was such an ironic theme for a wedding. But the '20s style clothing is so awesome.

Your dress was PERFECT, I'm obsessed with this theme and it's romance, and I pinned that sign. All great love affairs really do begin with a cocktail ;)
