If you’ve been dreaming of amazing wedding statement necklaces… hold on to your seats!  The bride in this North Carolina wedding, Riley, is rocking an amazing one! Anne Liles Photography has more from Riley and Calane’s beautiful wedding day…

Anne: Riley and Calane met in Nashville- he’s a musician and she’s a graphic designer as well as an award winning bartender in Nashville. Quite the pair with a rocking wedding. They wanted a their wedding to have a vintage feel achieved with old books, cameras, lace and a lounge atmosphere.

Riley wore and amazing monique lhuillier necklace that she found before she even purchased her gown. In her words, the gown had to be a perfect match for this amazing piece. And she found just that in her Monique Lhuillier Pauline gown- all carrying the vintage theme. Calane and Riley were caring, thoughtful of each other and I was thrilled to be a part of so much love.

From the Bride: There wasn’t much pre-planning on my part as far as dream wedding requirements go, other than a fabulous dress and a fabulous man. I live for design & love a good trend, and at the hand of a few google searches, I quickly fell under the evil spell of D.I.Y. EVERYTHING. (Hey Pinterest? You ruined my life. I love you…. I hate you… I love you.)

I adamantly believe in the power of accessories, so it’s not surprising that I settled on my wedding wardrobe statement piece long before I found a dress to champion it. The Monique Lhuillier bib necklace holds strong at number one on my list of wedding memory favorites. The dress appeared on a rack about 6 weeks before the wedding. One part-cinderella, one part-Madonna, all parts Monique-Lhuillier-divine, it takes a close second.

We chose Bald Head Island as our location (a family tradition, as my sister was married there 10 years prior), but my vice for the dramatic brought quick dismissal of barefooted beach vows. I instead designated our theme “Vintage Glam” and made all subsequent design decisions in the hopes of a good ol’ fashioned spectacle.
