We recently had the honor of seeing an editorial shoot we contributed to earlier this year featured on the wedding blog, Burnett’s Boards. In this post we’re sharing a few of our personal favorite shots by Red October Photography from this cool, modern D.C. bridal shoot with gold and navy blue elements.
We especially love the way Tiffany of Simply Breathe Events chose to style the jewelry from our collection into a few different looks for the bridal model – and that amazing cake created by Evan of Sweets by E! Check out the full gallery, and let us know in the comments which part is your favorite.

One of the great joys I’ve had since founding J’Adorn Designs in 2012 has been the opportunity to reconnect with old friends right before one of the biggest days of their lives. This was the case with Kimberly – a friend of mine from high school with whom I’d only kept in touch via social media since our graduation. Interestingly enough, the groom also graduated high school with us (although they didn’t begin dating until after college), so designing this bridesmaids’ jewelry suite had an especially personal element for me as a designer.
Kimberly’s family lived in France for a good portion of her childhood, an experience that clearly had an influence on her sense of style and elegant taste. While the bride opted to wear heirloom pieces on her wedding day, she commissioned me to design a varied but coordinated suite of custom jewelry for her bridesmaids. It was my great pleasure to create these special pieces for the women who stood beside her.
Many congratulations to Kimberly and Jesse! May the life you build together be just as beautiful as your wedding day.

Happy Friday, friends! Today we’re thrilled to share our favorite shots from an opulent and romantic editorial we collaborated on with Bekah Kay Photography and Dear Sweetheart Events, which was featured on United With Love last week.
Bekah was the mastermind behind the vision for this shoot, and she gleaned her inspiration from a play by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Here’s the specific excerpt from the play that inspired Bekah to design a shoot that honored “the riches of love and marriage:”
“ELEANOR: We can’t all of us be as pretty as thou art–
… Come, here is a golden chain I will give thee if thou wilt lead me to thy mother.
GEOFFREY: No–no gold. Mother says gold spoils all. Love is the only gold.”
The jewelry featured in this editorial includes our Cherish Bracelet and Filigree Bracelet in Burgundy & Pink, available in our shop.
Many thanks to the fantastic vendors we had the joy of working with on this shoot!
