Dreem Bride: Darina

Dreem Bride Darina wore ‘Flock of Angels’ to her breathtaking wedding at Chateau de Torreau in the South of France.

 

Darina answered some questions about her special day in our feature below. 

Tell us about your wedding location. How did you choose it? 

My husband and I have a special connection to France and especially love the Provence region so when we started planning the wedding we knew it would be the perfect backdrop for our big day. We travelled to France to visit possible venues with our wedding planner. Chateau de Tourreau was the first and only venue we visited because it was love at first sight for us with this 18th century chateau! The on-site chapel was the icing on the cake. 

How many guests attended your wedding? 

215 guests.

What was the most memorable part of your special day? 

Walking down the aisle with my dad then seeing my husband waiting at the end of it brought me an immense sense of joy. Even though I was very nervous leading up to it, a sense of calmness washed over me. We both could not stop smiling. I took a moment to look around at all our family and friends that surrounded us and truly felt like the luckiest girl in the world. That moment I will cherish forever. 

Was there a mood or theme you were inspired by for your dress?

The overall theme was Dreamy...magical...glamorous. 

What details did you share with Reem Acra about how you wanted to look and feel in your dress? 

I wanted a classic and timeless dress but with a modern twist. It was important to me to feel like myself but also have a dose of glamorous, wow-factor. 

How did you know Flock of Angels was your Dreem Dress?

Having tried many, many, many dresses on, when I put on 'Flock of Angels' I knew this was the one I didn’t want to take off. The sweetheart neckline with a full pleated skirt had a classic regal feel to it and the slit in the front gave it a contemporary edge. It was couture at its finest.

 

What was your hair and makeup inspiration?

For my makeup we emphasized my eyes with a soft lavender smokey - eye. I kept the rest of the makeup natural and finished it with a dusty-rose lip. For my hair, I wanted the dress to be the main focal point so I  chose to do a romantic low updo. 

What was your something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue?
Something old: Our wedding bands were made from old family jewelry.
Something new: My Charlotte Olympia wedding shoes.
Something borrowed: My wedding veil was lent to me by a family member.
Something blue: A blue ribbon was sewn inside of my dress with our initials and date of our wedding 6.15.19.

 

Congratulations to the happy couple!
