The bride's bouquet consisted of white roses, white peonies, stephanotis with crystals, gardenias, white and black anemones, and pink cymbidium orchids, all wrapped in her late-grandfather's handkerchief. She wore a white, sweetheart-cut dress with side ruching. Crystals and beading embellished the bodice, flowed down the left side and highlighted the train. A cathedral-length veil accompanied the dress.
