Maya Angelou wrote a poem pinned Beautiful Woman. When I read this Mareli came to mind and I reserved these words especially for her.
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Mareli surely looked phenomenal on her big day! She exudes such boundless grace and beauty. She does not invoke the existence of a princess, but rather that of a queen.
Mareli wanted her dress to be comfortable – she wanted to mingle with her loved ones without continuously tugging or adjusting her gown. She also wanted her dress to highlight her best attributes. I too firmly believe that if you feel beautiful, you will look beautiful!
Her off-white dress was fashioned from soft silk chiffon. The ruched bodice had beautifully embroidered and beaded detail and showcased a modest v-neck in front, with a lower cut open back. The dropped waist gave way to layered fabric – creating a soft and streamlined appearance.
