Our 5 Favorite Details from Jenna Ushkowitz and David Stanley's Big Day

From her shoes to the pies, here are the ideas we want to copy.

Here at Brides, we believe that when it comes to weddings, it's all in the details. Even just a few extra thoughtful touches can make a wedding unique and memorable—both for guests and for the newlyweds.

At Jenna Ushkowitz and David Stanley's Los Angeles nuptials, there was no shortage of highlights (and we're not just talking about their intimately star-studded guest list). From the historic venue to the hand-selected furniture, every moment served up a serious dose of inspiration. Ahead, we're breaking down our top five favorite details from the former Glee star's wedding to admire, save, and make your own.

A bride's wedding day shoe is the final ingredient that brings her entire look together. Jenna's white satin Jimmy Choo platform sandals with all-over pearl embellishment are timeless, elegant, and perfect for dancing the night away. She selected them while visiting Los Angeles-based bridal boutique Kinsley James Couture Bridal, where she found her dream Netta BenShabu gown.

Another essential bridal accessory not to be overlooked is the wedding bouquet. To encapsulate her color scheme of creamy neutrals and rich greenery, Jenna chose a chic bouquet of six long-stem white roses by Stella Bloom Designs. This modern alternative to the traditional bridal bouquet added drama and a pop of color while complementing the groom's boutonniere of small white roses.

It was important to the couple that the wedding felt inclusive of everyone, so they chose not to have a wedding party. However, they did reserve one special role for their French bulldog, Bear, who wore a very dapper and adorable tux that was custom-made in Italy. The cute pup received cheers as he was walked down the aisle, which the couple notes as one of their most special memories of the day.

The couple enlisted J Vineyards to create the ultimate spectacle: a dazzling champagne tower featuring their favorite bubbly. Having visited the vineyard together, it was a sentimental and showstopping moment positioned perfectly as guests made their way from the ceremony to the cocktail. We know this for certain: There's nothing that gets a party started quite like champagne.

The couple opted for a display of mini pies instead of a traditional wedding cake—we're totally here for reimagining the rules! Sirel bakery created an assortment of four flavors: pecan, chocolate ganache, cardamom apple, and triple berry lemon for guests to enjoy. The treats were accompanied by sweet menu signs crafted by Woodland Custom Designs and, of course, all the champagne to wash them down with.
