This gown was everything that Doyin was looking for and then some. It looked spectacular on her silhouette, and she loved the way that she looked in the gown. Not fully ready to commit though, Doyin did try on a few more gowns. Nothing was giving her quite the same feeling however, so this time, when Doyin tried the Pnina Tornai gown on again, she knew this one was the one for her.

“I just knew it was the dress,” Doyin explains. “It was just enough. There wasn’t too much of anything showing.”

The only part of the gown that Doyin decided to change was to omit the floral appliqués around the skirt of the gown. With the small alteration complete, Doyin finally had her dream wedding dress. To highlight the elegant back of the gown, Doyin opted for a sophisticated up-do for her wedding day hair. She completed the look with a lace-trimmed cathedral veil and drop earrings gifted to her from her husband (along with some fabulous shoes). With that, she was ready to walk down the aisle.

Feeling beautiful and classy, Doyin knew when she saw the tears streaming down her soon-to-be husband’s face that she had made the right decision – not only with the dress, but in love too!
