Wedding Belle: A Chic Beach Bride

  |  By Agata Zieba

Bride: Crystal Lee Thauberger Wedding Date: February 12, 2010 Wedding Location: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Wedding Style: Crystal was as pretty as a gem at her fun Mexican wedding. Her beautiful strapless gown was ruched until her waist and then drifted into a skirt that featured subtle pickups. A black satin sash was wrapped around her waist to give off a sultry and modern feel. Her dark tresses were parted to the right and pulled back into an elegant side chignon. A few loose layers softly fell over her face and of course her beach bride look could not be complete without and white feathery flower in her hair. Crystal wore large stud diamond earrings, which were complemented by a sparkling bracelet. Her nails were perfectly french-manicured and she held a beautiful bouquet of white calla lilies.  And as for her something blue—Crystal wore light blue peep-toe heels with small crystal straps around the ankles. Her bridesmaids also wore fabulous bright blue dresses, and the colour continued to thread throughout the day’s decor.
