Julia Garner was determined to wear a pantsuit to her courthouse wedding.
The Ozark actress exchanged vows with musician Mark Foster in an intimate affair held at New York City Hall last December, with only close family in attendance.
Garner donned a white Danielle Frankel ensemble for her big day, and in a new interview for Vogue magazine, praised the custom-made look.
“I love pantsuits, and I always thought that if I were to get married in a courthouse, I wanted to wear one. I wanted a Carrie Bradshaw moment,” she told the publication, referring to Sarah Jessica Parker’s stylish character in hit TV show Sex and the City.
The pantsuit was created by Frankel a short time before the wedding, after the designer reached out to the rising star on social media.
“I started freaking out because I was getting married in 10 days and had nothing to wear… I got a DM (direct message) from Danielle Frankel asking me if I had found a dress. I wrote her back, and we exchanged numbers. The next day we spoke on the phone, and I felt like I’d known her forever,” the 26-year-old recalled.
Garner was thrilled by Frankel’s quick response, calling her rapid connection with the wedding dress designer “an Instagram miracle!”
The pair soon agreed on the two-piece suit, which teamed a long-sleeved high neck tunic with wide-leg trousers featuring ruffled hems. Befitting of her classic Hollywood style, Garner added white pump heels, a white faux fur coat, and carried a bouquet of white roses.
The day after the ceremony, the newlyweds had a dinner with extended family, before a cutting cake and dancing the night away at the Public Hotel.
And for their first dance, Foster, 36, presented Garner with a song written for the occasion.
“Mark wrote, produced, and sang it. It was very surreal, and the most beautiful present I’ve ever received. It felt like I was floating up in the air,” she gushed.
