Just over a year ago my beautiful sister Shannon married the love of her life Dan. Congratulations on a year of wedded bliss! I was extremely honored to be a big part of their special day: they asked me to craft their wedding bands and all of Shannon’s bridal jewelry!

While the couple originally envisioned all white gold for their jewels, I gave them the CMD treatment and glammed things up by adding 18 karat gold (we all know how I love mixed metals!) The result was an ethereal, elegant look perfect for the gorgeous bride.

Shannon wore a stack of five wire bracelet and dainty-but-dramatic 3″ drop earrings with champagne-colored stones. She has always loved the stacked look so the mixed metal bracelets were simply perfect.

While creating the groom’s band I kept in mind a rugged vibe (an often untapped portion of my brain!) and designed something wearable for his easy, everyday style. The result was a wide, white gold hammered band. He loved the minimalistic, unique ring and even though he only had eyes for his bride, I caught him admiring his ring all throughout the evening!

It was truly spectacular to create such special pieces for two of my absolute favorite people. It’s such a joy to know they wear my jewelry everyday as a symbol of their commitment. In honor of their first anniversary I wanted to share this great story and remind my lovely readers that CMD is a great bridal resource. Keep us in mind when shopping for local, independent and handmade wedding jewelry!

The photos from this event were taken by our dear friend and wildly talented photographer Karlo. He specializes in candid and modern wedding photojournalism. Check out his remarkable work on his website.
