The bride, working with her styliststylist Anita Patrickson decided upon Zuhair Murad for her wedding ceremony and they picked 2 dresses. For the ceremony which took place in a garden, they chose the “Camila” from Murad’s Fall 2018 bridal collection which features a bolero, made out of silk tulle embroidered with shimmering 3-D floral appliqués, which took more than 100 hours to make. The ceremony look was completed with Neil Lane diamond earrings and a Zuhair Murad veil served as final touches.
The other dress for the evening reception was the “Christie” gown, also from Murad’s Fall 2018 collection; it’s made out of pink blush tulle and showered with petal appliqués. Telling Vogue, “The pink and the deep V-neckline really appealed to my ‘girlier’ side, and it’s a shape I really love wearing.” The fact that it was a perfect match with the event’s floral color palette and brought in a touch of rose gold, the only jewelry Chanel wears, were just two added wedding day bonuses.”
