The gown: The bride wore an ivory Anjolique gown of godavari silk. The mermaid style dress included a cathedral-length veil.
The bouquet: A hand-tied bouquet of green hydrangea, ivory and green Eskimo roses, and cymbidium orchids. A blue sapphire ring that belonged to the bride's great-grandmother was tied into the ivory silk of the bouquet and served as the bride's "something old, borrowed and blue."
