Escorted in marriage by her father, the bride wore a designer gown featuring a mermaid silhouette with a sweetheart neckline and a ruched bodice with tulle embroidered lace. The semi-cathedral train was of Dupioni silk. The waistline was accentuated with an ivory belt encrusted with Swarovski crystals and pearls. On a shoe clip, her father placed a six-pence from the year of her birth. She wore her mother’s diamond pendant and wedding band, and diamond stud earrings that were a gift from her groom.
Gracing her head was a fingertip-length veil featuring ivory silk tulle edged in a silver-thread embroidered scallop of Swarovski crystals and pearls.
Her bouquet was an array of peonies and roses in corals, pinks and white interlaced with the bride’s rosary. Stems were wrapped in ivory ribbon with pearl pin accents.
