The couple, who are part of the star-studded group telling their “Brooks Brothers Story” for the brand’s fall campaign, open up about their wedding day.

Brooks Brothers unveiled its fall 2015 campaign today, and the collection showcases not only the brand’s premium designs but a handful of celebrity stories, too.

The campaign’s theme, “My Brooks Brothers Story” highlights the personal testimonials of Christina Hendricks and her husband Geoffrey Arend, Tony Goldwyn, Matt McGorry, Yara Shahidi, Graham Moore and Joshua Sasse — all of whom are loyal fans of the iconic American brand.

Perhaps the most important sartorial decision a man can make is what to wear on his wedding day. Geoffrey selected a Brooks Brothers custom-made three-piece glen plaid suit in which to marry Christina Hendricks in 2009. “I have long arms and long legs; I’m like a monster to fit for a suit,” Arend jokes. “When I put the suit on, it was almost like I was wearing a suit for the first time.”

The couple are starring in the “What’s your Brooks Brothers story?” photographed by Carlo Miari Fulcis. On the last day of shooting in Milk Studios in Hollywood, Hendricks jokes that they’re like one of those old married couples out of a romantic comedy. Except that their chemistry is no Hollywood act. Arend starts reminiscing about proposing to the eight-time Emmy nominee. “You have to give the abbreviated story!” she exclaims. But he doesn’t. Instead, he recounts each carefully planned detail, from the chandelier under which he proposed, to selecting the glen plaid fabric for the Brooks Brothers suit he wore down the aisle. They were introduced by a mutual actor friend in 2007.

Of their New York City wedding, Hendricks recalls, “He just looked so handsome—and so nervous. He looked so nervous!” Her husband admits that he was, but adds, “That day, dressed like that, I felt like the most powerful man in the world.” After the shoot wraps, Hendricks jumps to pick up the couple’s cockapoo puppy, Zou Zou, who’s been watching from the sidelines. The happy family is complete again.

Just when Christina Hendricks had gotten a comfortable bit of distance from Joan Holloway Harris, her fictional alter ego is walking that walk—you know the one—back into her life one more time.

It’s been a year since—on set, at least—Hendricks parted company with the Titian-tressed 1960s-era office manager-turned-agency partner that brought saucy, sharp-tongued retorts, glass-ceiling suffering, and, of course, a simmering, retro-style sex appeal to every episode of AMC’s Mad Men—the series that both redefined the socially seismic era it chronicled through the lens of Madison Avenue advertising and defined the current Golden Age of Television, where creator-driven, nontraditional network fare examining flawed, all-too-real protagonists reigns.

But with the show having just aired its final seven episodes amid the attendant hoopla afforded what many considered one of the best TV series ever, Joan has returned front and center to the life of the actress who played her, undoing all those months of emotional moving on—both the show and her role, she admits, don’t make it easy to bid farewell. “It’s sort of like when you finally get over a breakup, and then they come back and they want to go out on a date again, and you’re like, Wait a minute—I got over you!” laughs Hendricks, who just turned 40, her red hair now lightened several shades from Joan’s eye-catching red to a soft strawberry blonde. “No, I don’t think I’ll ever get over it.”
