When it comes to choosing a wedding gown, having a shape in mind is essential. Luckily, getting style ideas can be as simple as surveying the architecture, lines and landscape of your surroundings. Sophisticated silhouettes, contemporary necklines accented with precious stones and sequins, and simple, organic hair and makeup are just a few of the trends showcased here that were inspired by the modernistic setting.

The true essence of beauty flowing through her veins. A bride, God's creation to bring joy and happiness to the lucky groom. She makes the family bright with sunshine, the power behind the throne. I am enchanted with her gorgeous looks, mixed with her humble heart. Brings me tears to my eyes, like the first time I saw her, the day she was born. Yes, this is my daughter, Adriana, Cristi for those who know her and love her. Great pictorial, Chacha, Very proud of you. Papa.
