King of the Road
The ultimate wedding day accessory? A classic getaway car. Ready to hit the road with his new spouse, Dominic is wearing a Brunello Cucinelli“Largo Su Grisaglia” suit in blue ($3,995), Canali blue dress shirt ($295), Worth & Worth “Montecristi Casablanca” Panama hat ($695) and Torino Leather Co. Italian leather and linen belt ($95).

Fancy That 
Not to be overlooked, having measurements taken and alterations done ahead of time ensures everything fits properly on the wedding day. Dominic is measured in an ISAIA “Giacca Smoking Argyle” blazer in navy ($4,325), Senström fitted solid white tux shirt ($325), ISAIA formal pants in black ($840), Stefano Ricci black bowtie ($250) and To Boot “Bolton” Italian velvet loafers ($350).

Raise a Glass
A perk of a MartinPatrick3 fitting, Dominic grazes on a charcuterie board from The Hewing Hotel paired with some bubbly. He is wearing an Eleventy single breasted jacket ($1,795), Eleventy garment dyed polo in light blue ($495), and Eleventy stretch wool joggers ($395). 

About Face
A fresh cut and clean shave are a last-minute must. Dominic squeezes in some time with Alex, Master Barber at Marty’s Barbershop located
within MartinPatrick3. He is wearing Brunello Cucinelli medium wash denim jeans ($845), Monadic henley ($110), and Ralph Lauren Double RL cotton bandana print jacket ($690).

Take Note
Jasmine Hamsa, event coordinator of Moon & Stars Events, makes sure Dominic stays in line and on schedule in the final hours leading up to his walk down the aisle. He is wearing ISAIA drawstring suede trouser pant in brown ($1,995), ISAIA short sleeve polo sweater in white cashmere ($1,095), ISAIA sweater jacket in white cashmere ($1,495), Wolf & Sheperd Cognac loafer ($195). Jasmine is wearing Rachel Comey “Coxsone” pants in eggplant ($450), Joseph Ballie top in ivory ($595) and custom Esquivel mules (price varies).

In the Details 
Dominic’s boutonniere is a soft neutral mix of dried florals by Huldra Floral. A Brackish “Wallace” quail, pheasant and partridge feather bowtie ($225) tops off his look. He is wearing a Canali check suit blazer in tan and orange ($2,395), Senströms fitted fly front shirt in white poplin ($265), Hoorsenbuhs monogrammed cufflinks ($16,000) and Hoorsenbuhs classic tri-link ring with white diamonds ($2,000).

The First Cut 
Dominic’s groom’s cake by Ink Sweets is a nod to the modern outdoorsman with a woodsy color scheme, antlers sculpted out of modeling chocolate, and leather-like accents. He is wearing Hoorsenbuhs monogrammed cufflinks ($16,000) and Hoorsenbuhs classic tri-link ring with white diamonds ($2,000)

Dog Days
After the big day, a tropical honeymooon awaits the newlyweds and their four-legged companions, Cole and Ella. Dominic is wearing Orlebar Brown “Travis Island” shirt in yellow ($375), Orlebar Brown “Setter ll” swimsuit in white ($245), Worth & Worth “Montecristi Panama Leo Carillo” hat ($925) and Common Projects “Achilles” white leather sneaker ($440).
