Inside Our Editor in Chief's Dreamy South of France Wedding

Welcome to Who What Wear Weddings, which is essentially fashion people getting married! We’ll be showcasing stylish weddings replete with must-save inspiration images and shoppable elements (this is Who What Wear, after all) and peppered with useful tips and learnings straight from the newlywed. We’re kicking off the series with our own editor in chief’s wedding.

In February of 2007, my freshman year at UCLA, I got a Facebook message inviting me to an acquaintance’s party. Fast forward to Saturday, and I put on my best dress (an Alice + Olivia LBD with batwing lace sleeves and a bodycon skirt) and dragged my roommate along to the notorious hotspot Les Deux. Zac happened to be there for the same party. We danced that night and went on to date for more than a decade after. That same quarter, Zac also happened to meet a lifelong friend, Vadim. They were sitting next to each other in a film class and happened to be wearing the same shoes from a niche French brand. Zac became like an extended member of Vadim’s family, and spent time with them every summer at their house in the south of France, and I was lucky enough to join several times, too. In the fall of 2019, Zac proposed in Big Sur. After being delayed a couple years thanks to the pandemic, we were finally able to wed this past August at Vadim’s family home in France. Here’s how the big day went down, from the homemade details to the dress I waited two and a half years to wear.

Crushed it on the first try!  WWW Weddings Tip: I saw on TikTok that I thought was smart: ask your officiant in advance to step out of the way for the big kiss moment so you have a clear background for the photos.
