The bride given in marriage by her father wore a romantic gown from Casablanca Bridal. The gown had a modified sweetheart neckline, A-line silhouette, lace cap sleeves and satin buttons down the back. To complete her look Miranda wore red satin peep toe heels. The delicate lace on the dress was decorated with just the right amount of pearls, sequins, beads and hand sewn lace appliqués. The scalloped lace trimmed chapel length train and birdcage veil helped to finish off the sophisticated look.
The bride’s handtied bouquet was comprised of red ranunculus, burgundy/red mini cala lilies, red and orange gerber daisies and hypericum berries. Loops of lily grass and grapevine were intertwined with the seeded eucalyptus around the base of the bouquet. Ecru ribbon with a row of seed pearl pins and a sentimental pin were placed on the bouquet’s stem.
