Wedding Belle: Perfectly Elegant

  |  By Leeann Yee

Bride: Karen Chiavatti Wedding Date: October 31, 2009 Wedding Location: Toronto, Ontario Wedding Style: Donning a gorgeous white gown with exquisite floral lace embroidery and a long-sleeved lace bolero to match, Karen looked simply stunning on her big day. A lace-covered white rose decorated her beautiful short red hair, with the bride choosing classic red lipstick and dark nails to complete her wedding day look. Karen’s jewellery was kept simple, a single teardrop necklace gracing her neck with small, delicate hoop earrings. Keeping in line with the elegant Halloween theme, guests were surprised with the performance of ‘Thriller’ after dinner. "We didn’t tell anybody about this, so it was a complete surprise to all our guests,” Karen tells us. The bride wore ruby-red flats, perfectly complimenting her stunning bouquet of red roses, the red and black colours of the bridal party, and for dancing the night away! The Look: Bridal gown: Paloma Blanca ( Ceremony and Reception:  The Berkeley ( Tux: tuxedoroyale (
