matching veil conveys sweet delicacy.

the handiwork on its fabric whereas Cary Santiago’s
signature for “alternative details” left
the crowd in awe with his bareback, silver-lined wedding
Not to be outdone, Philip Rodriguez did a modern take
on native fabrics, putting extra oomph on both the bodice
