What, exactly, does a fashion maven wear to her own wedding? That was the challenge faced by Zoë Chatfield-Taylor, Nic+Zoe’s merchandising director (and namesake), when she got engaged to her longtime sweetheart, Evan Korsmeyer. “I wanted something that was easy, a little bit more boho and casual but still chic and glamorous,” Zoë says. Her flowy Stone Fox gown and floral crown couldn’t have been a better fit for the venue: a South Dartmouth hay farm owned by Zoë’s mother, Dorian Lightbown, who founded the Boston-based contemporary clothing brand in 2006.
After swapping original vows under the shade of a chestnut tree, Zoë and Evan snuck away to a well-worn path flanked by picturesque stone walls—the perfect showcase for the bride’s floor-length pointelle sweater, picked up at the Paris boutique Mes Demoiselles on a work-related outing with her mom. “Of course I didn’t have my dress with me when I bought it,” Zoë says, but “it was just perfect. It was fun to have something from one of our trips together.”
