The Bride and Groom Wore Thom Browne for Their Elopement Overlooking the Cliffs of Big Sur

The couple booked one of the best rooms at the aerie-like Post Ranch Inn, and invited a small group of West Coast friends to join for a celebratory dinner outdoors.

,” as well as Manolo Blahnik heels, though she shortly abandoned them for her Converse sneakers. “I will never forget being this snatched,” she says. Her Biedermeier-style bouquet was a nod to Noah’s German heritage, its white English roses tied into the English lace of her dress, and wrapped in dove gray Thom Browne grosgrain. (Officially, the dress code was, “Don’t fuck this up.” It remains unclear whether this was an homage to RuPaul or simply a threat.)
Nearly each of the guests had a nuptials-related duty. Pippa Bianco, the film director who is also Noah’s oldest friend, officiated the private moment in which Kelly and Noah took vows at Wind and Sea House, a private home tucked off of Highway 1 that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Photographer and best friend Daisy Johnson may have caught some of the ceremony, but the rest of the party observed from a terrace more than a hundred feet away. (Cheers erupted when we saw them kiss from afar.) Kelly’s sister, known professionally as
Holistic Chef Niki
, prepared a plant-based feast, but broke her own regimen to include a special tri-tip roast procured from Seaside Market in Cardiff-by-the-sea, California, near where the Connor girls grew up. Artist and creative director Philippa Price designed a tablescape that included antique uranium glass that glowed green under her lighting design (which mercifully included heating lamps). Sam Harris, the lead singer and guitarist of X Ambassadors, was the musical entertainment for the night, and played “Baby” by Donnie and Joe Emerson for the first dance around the fire. A few guests pitched in by doing the dishes at the end of the evening. Perhaps the only person without an official duty was the mother of the bride, affectionately known everywhere as “Queenie,” who wore a truly killer necklace by Picasso, and earrings by Calder.

With a wedding party so small, brunch the following morning was more akin to Sunday breakfast at a friend’s house, playing Codenames, rather than the morning after a landmark life event. As everyone departed for drives up and down the California coast, and back to the reality of a pandemic, it settled on all the guests how grateful that we were to escape, safely, if only for the night.

A loving pre-wedding/‘happy birthday’ note from my mom, Queenie. Noah and I began dating on my birthday, got engaged on his, and then got married on mine. I doubt any of my future birthdays will top today, and I am fully okay with that. These amazing Jiwinaia earrings were a gift from my friend Lily, and they allude to the first inside joke Noah and I had together.

Big Sur is such a special place for us; we could not imagine getting married anywhere else. We wanted everything to be outside to enjoy the insane views that this magical place provides.

For getting ready, I wore these dope feather-boa leggings from The Sleeper. [They] were a gift from my dear friends Emilie and Alex at Over the Moon, along with my favorite vintage Run DMC tee from Noah’s closet.

Queenie zipping up my dress, a moment of such nervous excitement that I will never forget. I will also never forget being this snatched.
