What was wedding shopping like for you? Destiny had a vision in her mind of how she wanted to look for her wedding day. After seeing Charlize Theron in a Christian Dior J’adore perfume commercial, she knew this sleek, sophisticated and classy look was her inspiration. Having such a firm vision proved finding ‘the one’ dress a challenge for Destiny and she admits that she really didn’t enjoy the shopping process! She landed on a Mori Lee mermaid style that showcased her lovely figure and took extra special time selecting jewelry that made her look pop! Her reception dress was a bridesmaid dress that allowed her to relax and have fun through the night.
Bridesmaids: Destiny gave her ladies jewelry, make-up and heel protectors for their shoes since the ceremony was outdoors!
