This wedding dress by Joanne Fleming Design is something out of a dream! The subtle blue color of the Heron gown turned the timeless style into a modern bridal look, while the off the shoulder sleeves gave it the perfect touch of old world romance.

Justina Bilodeau went for old world Southern charm for the reception decor – vintage patterned china, dark wood, and an elegant silk runner added to the ethereal elegance of the manor house.
