the carlee gown – a poetic wedding dress

A wedding dress is truly a once in a lifetime gown. If your descendants are going to have a photo of you decades from now, it’s more likely than not going to be one of you on your wedding day. That’s why finding a wedding dress that says all you want it to say, that allows not just your outer beauty to shine but also your inner beauty, is so important. You need a wedding gown that is poetic.

This shoot by Elizabeth Messina features just such a dress. If there’s a wedding dress out there that reads as romantic it’s this one –  The Carlee Gown from Chaviano Couture.
