The bride was given in marriage by her father. She chose a formal, designer gown of white silk organza. Designed with a strapless, sweetheart neckline. The gown was fashioned with a natural waist and a circular skirt. Multi-dimensional flowers of silk garnished the bodice and cascaded over the fullness of the skirt. A rhinestone graced the center of each floral cluster. The full skirt swept to a semi-cathedral train. Her cathedral length Barcelona styled veil was edged with tiny silver bugle beads. It was held by a bridal bandeau of crystals and pearls.
