Because the dress was so simple it was important with beautiful details such as little buttons down the back and on the sleeves. We knew she needed some kind…

A Cream Silk with Chantilly lace overlay was Holly’s dress choice for her wedding dress. Carefully chosen dress details The dress has long sleeves and a low back with a diamond neckline.
