We all know it's wedding season, so let's talk about the fun stuff: Both Sides Bridal featuring our lovely brides. Welcome to our new blog series—where we get the chance to talk to the babes that have worn our jewelry on their special day. These are ladies who aren't afraid to make a statement. The ones with a refined, yet unapologetic taste, AND the ones who we are inspired by. These are the women that make this side of our brand, complete.
For our first Q+A we thought we'd honor our first ever bride. WARNING: Summer's style, photos and story are an absolute dream.

Q: What was your favorite piece that you wore on your special day?
Q: When preparing for your wedding, were you looking for specific jewelry to finish your outfit? If so, why did you choose s+s and why do you feel like it completed your vision?
A: I was specifically looking for southwestern style jewelry to complete my wedding day look. I choose s+s because not only did it have exactly the look I was going for, but it had the entire matching set. One stop shop!
Q: How did you find s+s and what was it that made you feel connected to it?
A: My favorite blogger, @officiallyquigley!! She made a post one day about doing a bridal jewelry collaboration with sticks + stones. Before I even saw the collection, I already knew it was something I was going to love. Then when I saw it, I couldn't believe my eyes. Not only was it EXACTLY what I was looking for, but it was a collaboration with my favorite blogger. I already had a turquoise squash blossom picked out but I really wanted a white one. I looked for months and months, but couldn't find one I liked. It was almost like the collection was made for me. It was fate!
Q: If someone else was looking to finish their wedding look would you recommend s+s?
A: 💯. Not only are these pieces great for your special day, but they are great everyday pieces as well. I wear them all the time!
Q: What vibe were you going for on your wedding day?
A: We wanted our wedding day to be very intimate and relaxing, which is why we chose to do a destination wedding with only our parents in attendance.
Q: Give us a glimpse into your special day! Do you have a favorite memory?
A: My most favorite memory and something I will never forget is our first dance. Let me start out by saying that my husband is the emotional one in our relationship. So I knew he was going to cry like a baby during our ceremony. Little did I know he had a plan to make sure I had my emotional moment as well. A few months before our wedding my Nana had passed away. Isaac and I decided to have 2 songs for our first dance, one of them being Waltz Across Texas by Ernest Tubb. This song was my Nana's favorite song and my Papa use to play guitar and sing it to her all the time. I already knew that I was going to be emotional when I heard the song. The song starts playing and we start to Waltz. I am concentrating so hard on not messing up the dance that I don't even realized that it is a recording of my Papa playing guitar and singing. The song ends and my Papa says "Congratulations Summer and Isaac. Nana and I love you so much!" I burst into tears and Isaac wraps his arms around me. This will be a memory that I cherish forever.
