Wedding Suits by Duchess: Ryan & Michele, Seattle, WA
Each spring, Duchess creates a bounty of handsome custom wedding suits. Whether designed after vintage style suits, other designer suits, or simply customized to the wedding palette, wedding suits by Duchess are something we love to feature. Ryan and Michele's at-home wedding was beautifully captured and we would like to share it with you.
Ryan and Michele traveled to Duchess from Seattle to have Ryan and his "Best Man of Honor" decked out for the big day. The result of this fruitful meeting was the dapper custom suits for these gents, which fit in so beautifully with the couple's at-home eclectic wedding.
Kristen Marie of Kristen Marie Photography shot their wedding-- her intimate and natural pictures reveal a world in which we want to tread! Our suits do, at least. Kristen loves to travel, so please contact her if you would like to talk to her about photographing your event-- wherever it may be!

Ryan and Michele's wedding showcases their fine taste, in the comfort of their dazzling home. They love all things vintage and antique, so their theme was a kind of Mad Men-esque late 50's early 60's attire.
Michele took her time and settled on a beautiful vintage dress which she scooped up on eBay. Ryan knew from day one that he had to get a Duchess suit made for himself and his "best man of honor". They wanted something classic that they could wear for the wedding, but also to interviews and parties. According to Ryan, "putting on the finished suits made us both feel like kids on Christmas morning."
If you find yourself as charmed by their aesthetic as we were, you will be happy to know that Michele offers her decorating and scavenging services from her website, as well as some treasures seen in these photos for sale. Ryan sells other awesome, more manly vintage finds at his Etsy store, like this stellar pipe set.
