Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a formal ivory satin gown. The fitted bodice featured a strapless sweetheart neckline adorned with the groom's grandmother's antique crystal brooch. The waistband was encircled with lace and Swarovski crystal beaded flowers, which flowed into a sweeping trumpet-style hemline.
