Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Check, check, check, and check! For my big day, I had them all, and they had incredible meaning to me; however this is a tradition rooted in symbolism.
Tradition calls for something old to symbolize continuity – I had a charm of my Papa, a constant influence in my life. Something new to symbolize optimism was marked by a brand new perfume that I picked up specifically for my day. It was Chanel Mademoiselle, a fragrance that holds a brand new meaning to me now. I borrowed a piece from my bridesmaid to symbolize borrowed happiness – she has been happily married for years. Lastly, for something blue to represent fidelity and love, I went with a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes with blue lace on the interior. Every step I took on my wedding day, was a step in fidelity and love.
Tradition is beautiful, but I’m a modern spirit with an appreciation for luxury and sophistication. I made my mark on my wedding day look with jewelry from the Diamond Cellar. As the highest rated jewelry stores throughout the Midwest, located in Columbus, Ohio, Diamond Cellar is guaranteed to have a piece to mark any occasion. Even though I wanted to maintain an elegant and classy look the entire day, I knew I wanted slightly different looks for my wedding mass and ballroom reception.
Diamond Cellar has an exquisite selection of jewelry, from pearls to diamonds, they honestly have it all. To showcase a more classic look for our cathedral mass, I chose a pair of pearl earrings to compliment my look. The pearls were as equally stunning as the cathedral that Kenny and I exchanged vows in.
Our reception was in an iconic Columbus ballroom that is known for its beauty, glamour, and allure. To pull off a look that stood above the venue, I knew I had to make a few changes to my look. After all, blending in as a typical bride is not my style –my style is standout in high fashion. First, I put my hair in my signature look – the bun. I’m often referred to as the queen of the top-knot, and I did not want to disappoint. Secondly, I went with a pair of Diamond Cellar diamond earrings fit for a queen. With my engagement ring, my wedding ring, and these earrings, I felt as if I was at a coronation, not a reception, and I wasn’t complaining.
Every bride desires to be “crowned” on her wedding day. I made my mark on my wedding day by allowing Diamond Cellar to crown me with their beautiful jewels. Whether you’re getting married or celebrating another milestone, make your mark with Diamond Cellar, Columbus.
