Jennifer Behr x Micaela Erlanger’s Dazzling Bridal Capsule Is Inspired by the Stylist’s Destination Wedding

Name a more iconic duo than accessories designer Jennifer Behr and celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger. Indeed, when the two joined forces to create a wedding capsule collection inspired by Erlanger’s recent Miami nuptials, brides-to-be everywhere couldn’t wait to say “I do” to the new collaboration. The limited-edition assortment is tightly edited with six standout pieces—and all would be the ultimate “something new” to any bridal trousseau. 

Micaela and Jennifer’s professional history is decidedly more lengthy. Erlanger was introduced to the Jennifer Behr brand early in her career. And it wasn’t long before Behr’s signature sparkling pieces became a red-carpet fixture among Erlanger’s equally star-studded roster of celebrity clientele, which includes Lupita Nyong’o, Meryl Streep, and more. When Erlanger became engaged, she called upon Behr to design custom pieces for her own red carpet-worthy turn at the wedding and on the road to the altar.

Erlanger and Behr drew from their personal and professional experience in creating the collection. “We designed items I was looking for but couldn’t find,” Erlanger said. And if Erlanger was coming up short when searching high and low for bespoke accessories, surely other brides must be, too. Similarly, Behr’s most common requests from brides are styles they can coordinate with their bridesmaids on the bachelorette party and a host of other wedding-adjacent events.

The capsule caters to everyone and every occasion, with Erlanger as inspiration. From the bridesmaids’ bows to the flowers in the bouquet, many details from her destination wedding are woven in, including (yes!) the accessories Nyong’o donned, plus a few never-before-seen styles for good measure. Princess brides can channel Erlanger, who wore a crystal tiara at her after-party, with the Clara Tiara. “It’s a beautiful iteration of that custom design, and the Camila Earrings complement it,” Behr said. “It can be worn as a tiara or across the back of the head. Either way, a veil would look gorgeous!”

The Kinsley Barrette is similar to those crafted for Erlanger’s bridesmaids, the sage and daffodil hues of the Virginia Ribbon can be coupled with the other crystal styles, and the Flora Earrings will go from your first dance to the farewell brunch without missing a beat.

Take it from an Erlanger when she says there is no wrong way to wear it; everything is made to be mixed and matched according to your mood. And when in doubt, more is more. “How pretty would it be to see an assortment of bows and floral earrings walk down the aisle!” You don’t even have to be a bride or a bridesmaid. Behr adorns her tresses with the Quinn Bobby Pins and dazzles in the Camila Earrings for dinners out on the town. And when Erlanger recently attended the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda couture show in Sicily, appropriately decked out in the pear-and-emerald cut Camila earrings, she spent the entire evening basking in compliments.
