The bride coming down the aisle on the arm of her father wore an exquisite organza gown draped with Venice lace with full bishop sleeves with high neckband.

A Camelot cap of organza and Venice lace secured the lavish floor length cathedral veil.

Preceding the bride down the aisle were six bridesmaids, ring bearer and flower girl.
