Bonnie Wright's wedding dress had its own unique story.

"It was important to reflect our love for the environment and use sustainable materials instead of any single-use packaging, lean into our creativity and make things ourselves, and source everything as locally and seasonally as possible," recalled Wright, who wed Lococo in an outdoor ceremony at The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano, California.
With that goal in mind, Wright searched for a wedding dress at Los Angeles' Happy Isles vintage bridal salon.
"It only took two visits to the salon, and I found my dress. It was surreal at first actually making the official decision, but it felt so right and easy!" she revealed, adding that the eco-friendly design required alterations due to its 100-year-old history.

"The dress didn't have the original underdress with it as it had likely perished—it being 100 years old!" So when I was first trying it on, it was completely see-through," recalled Wright. "It was quite funny having to imagine the underdress we would end up making for it."
Wright adds that she accessorized the look with modern touches, including a pair of Prada silver shoes from her closet that "felt perfect as the straps were shaped like branches and leaves."
For her hair, shared Wright, she clipped it back with a vintage hairpiece.
"My hair is naturally so straight, so we added some texture which made it move in the wind beautifully," she explained.
