Wedding Belle: Stunning Beauty

  |   By Agata Zieba

Bride: Karen Melnychuk Wedding Date: September 19, 2009 Wedding Location: Vancouver, British Columbia Wedding Style: Karen’s perfectly fitted gown embodied her wedding’s romantic and dramatic theme. The stunning a-line gown had a plunging v-neck and her train was that of a true, sophisticated bride. Karen’s dark tresses were pulled back in an updo and masked beneath a long, cathedral veil. During the ceremony she wore a simple but gorgeous Tiffany & Co. necklace that her groom had delivered to her the morning of their wedding. Bouquets were made of deep red roses and topped off with a few long, black feathers. Karen’s bridesmaids complemented her style in black cocktail dresses while holding similar bold bouquets. The Look: Bridal gown, Sposa Wedding World ( Bridal party, The Bridal Gallery ( Flowers, Pirin Flowers (604-787-5623). Hair and makeup, Spa Utopia & Salon ( Ceremony, Rowena’s Inn On The River (
