Story:
Lydia and I have been together for 9 years and got married on September 21, 2013. We met in college at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill but did not date. When she graduated she moved to San Francisco and a year later I moved to NYC. Not long after I moved here we started dating long distance and did so for a year before she moved to NYC to go to grad school at Columbia. I proposed in June 2012 in the rose garden at Lyndhurst Mansion.

Clothing:
I am very particular about fit and personal details so I knew that I would be getting my wedding suiting made. I used
Enzo Custom Clothiers because I liked their classic styling with slimmer silhouettes. For the ceremony I wore a black tuxedo with peak satin lapels. I chose a shirt with a winged collar and plain white shirt studs and cufflinks. For the reception, I chose to stick with black tuxedo pants but I changed to a deep purple jacket with black satin shawl collar. For this look, I decided to skip the pocket square and go for a brooch instead. I also changed to a laydown collared shirt with black shirt studs/cufflinks. I wore the same studded Stuart Weitzman shoes all day. Also, Lydia wore a gown by Jenny Packham and shoes by Kate Spade.
