The gown Kate chose had just the right amount of everything for this upscale, beachy bride. It combined the best of both worlds with it's elevated; curve-hugging silhouette, with a fun laid-back halter neckline and open back. The scooped neckline had a modern and sexy vibe while the button down back with overlapping seams that folded into eye-catching form brought the classic element that she wanted to the gown. Originally mad with a bow, Kate opted to have that removed and chose to have an open back as opposed to the illusion mesh back the gown had.

While at Kleinfeld Bridal, Kate and her mother picked out a veil to accompany her gown. Since Kate chose a very chic and minimalistic gown, a dramatic veil was just what her bridal look needed. Kate picked out an ethereal, cathedral length veil with satin silk trimming around the edge. To pull the whole look together, Kate wore her hair in luscious beachy waves with her veil trailing behind her. An art-deco hairband acted as her hair bling. Kate paired that with some art-deco earrings her mother gifted her, a designer necklace and a sapphire, diamond ring that had belonged to her grandmother.

Kate's vision for her wedding day had finally come to fruition. Everything had come together in an enchanting and eclectic mix of upscale art-deco vibes combined with the casual and natural beauty that lush white orchids and white roses bring. From the venue, to the decorations, to the gown; Kate's wedding was the embodiment of her and her new husband's personal style. Surrounded by beauty and wearing a jaw-droppingly, gorgeous gown, Kate's wedding day was everything she could have dreamed of.

Kate reminisces, “I always wanted to look classy and elegant.” Kate's gown accomplished this and so much more. “I felt elegant. I felt very summery and fun. I felt like it was very classy but fun as well. I just loved it!”

In a gown that was very different than what a bride might find in Australia, Kate felt that the gown captured everything that this Australian girl was all about: timeless love and happiness.
