The former Miss Waniger wore a floor length dress made of Chantilly lace and tulle designed with a Sabrina neckline outlined with sequins, long sleeves, and a full hoop skirt with tiered ruffles in the back when she was escorted into the church by her father. The cap style headpiece, made of matching lace, and trimmed with pearls, and sequins, was attached to the fingertip veil.


Her bridal bouquet contained pink sweetheart roses and stephanotis centered with a white orchid.
