Happy wedding day! Doesn’t the bride look lovely in her wedding finery? Her dress shimmers – and the lace collar is just gorgeous. I believe long gloves should come back in fashion – with the veil topped with flowers she makes a picture perfect bride!
The groom looks rather young – and perhaps a bit nervous! Don’t you think the attendants look like they could be siblings of the bride and groom?
Wedding bands are displayed prominently – on the grooms hand and I think on the outside of the glove for the bride. I hope they shared a happy life together.
