The dramatic Ball-gown skirt featured an inset of beaded Venetian lace punctuated with hand-made silk roses. The softly bubbled skirt extended to Chapel length with a confection of layered bustles, nestled with roses, creating the breath-taking train. Her veil was fingertip length with a beaded edge. Her bouquet was a hand tied cascade of miniature Calla Lilies, Big Fun and Riviera Roses, White Dendrobrium Orchids, Tree Fern, Bear Grass and Salal.
