A sweetheart neckline with geometric elements, a mix of soft and textured fabrications, draped panels, and the sweetest of details all come together to bring just the right touch of romance and elegance to Avila's spring time nuptials.
Inspired by the open countryside and the beauty of nature, Gretchen brought her vision to life by incorporating the ornate detail and texture of lace and mixing it with the whimsy, breezy feel of chiffon.
This gown offers two looks. The fitted underskirt is made of silk charmeuse with a full overlay of re-embroidered lace and hand-stitched scallops along the slit and hem. The fitted bodice is made of silk satin, and features a front silk chiffon draped detail with chiffon off-the-shoulder straps. The most unique part of this gown is the detachable silk chiffon wrap skirt with a full 15-yard sweep at the hem. Complete with a built-in bustier, hand-made covered button details, and clean lines, this gown is truly one-of-a-kind and tells an enchanting love story all on its own.
To play up her fairytale woodland ensemble, she completed her look with a darling floral crown to rest on her tousled waves.
