The bride

Angie’s stunning, strapless mermaid gown was covered in beautiful appliqued flowers, accented with sparkling crystals. Her long train and even longer veil ensured her walk down the aisle was a spectacular one! Badgley Mischka shoes and glittering accessories completed the look. Angie wore her hair in tousled curls, perfectly framing her face, for which she chose dark, accentuating eye make up and a natural lip colour. An ideal choice when you know there will be plenty of photos taken!

The groom

Having proudly displayed his wedding morning t-shirt, Carlos chose a more appropriate sophisticated black tuxedo for the occasion, with satin lapels and matching black bow tie and pocket square.

The florals

With the richness of the dresses and suits, a simple white and dusty pink palette was chosen for the florals. The bride’s bouquet was made up of roses, with the addition of hydrangeas to the bridesmaids’. Angie’s featured pink and white with touches of sparkle, and the bridesmaids’ matched perfectly.
