Wondering how this bride managed to get the 200 bridesmaids? They comprised of her friends, family members and models signed on to her agency, Black Dove Models.
The bride looked amazing in a long-sleeved ballroom gown with a princess tiara and white studs as accessories where’s her husband wore a white coat with black trousers and a bowtie. He accessorized his suit with a boutonniere that matched his wife’s bouquet.
The bridesmaids wore long light brown dresses with each holding a single white flower similar to the bride’s bouquet. The groomsmen were also elegantly dressed in black suits.
