Our bride was wearing a stunning red couture dress designed by Mac Duggal and carried by dress shop High Maintenance Formalwear.  What would a Pretty Woman Valentine's wedding be without the red dress?  It had a stunning fitted bodice with a heart shaped neckline and mermaid flair at the bottom.  It was accented with a multi-tiered black fringe. She also wore elbow length black gloves and gold Sergio Rossi pumps that wrapped up her leg.

Our dessert table was mouth watering!  It was a shabby chic pink and white vanity with a red rosette runner. The centerpiece was the wedding cake of course.  It was three tiered and covered in red fondant.  Adorning the cake were white handmade sugar flowers, and it sat atop a gold cake stand dripping in crystals that matched the reception table candelabra.
