This gown checked off everything that Vanessa was looking for in a gown and it was easy to see why she had fallen in love with it. As far as form-fitting gowns go, there is nothing that fits better than a Pnina Tornai gown. The sheath gown fit Vanessa like a glove and hugged her silhouette in all the right places. To add to that, the gown was completely covered in swirls of water crystals that were a signature embellishment in Pnina Tornai's Wind Upon Water Collection. Glimmering in the sun, they were perfect for Vanessa's beach nuptials.

To complement the gown, Vanessa simply wore her wedding ring and a pair of pearl diamond earrings that Eric had bought her. Initially thinking she was going to wear her hair half up and half down, that changed to completely up when Vanessa received the final version of her gown. She knew that she could not cover up the exquisite detailing on the back.

It was finally the day of her wedding, and Vanessa and her mother had been the only ones to see Vanessa's gown. Vanessa went into another room to change, and when she came out in her wedding dress her bridesmaids’ jaws hit the floor in amazement. Vanessa looked radiant in her sleek and sexy wedding dress. Another person completely floored by Vanessa's beauty in the gown was her fiancé Eric. Upon seeing his soon-to-be wife in her wedding dress, Eric could not hold back his tears for he was 100% in love with the woman he saw before him. For Vanessa, this was all the confirmation she needed that she had picked the right gown.

“I felt stunning in the gown,” Vanessa gushes. “The sunlight was hitting the dress from all these different angles and all the stress from everything no longer mattered when I put the dress on.”

Surrounded by the natural beauty of Turks and Caicos and her bridesmaids dressed in her favorite color, lime green, Vanessa was ready for her beach wedding. Vanessa had said yes to the perfect gown and now she was ready to say to “I do” to the perfect man for her.
