My Sister's Wedding Dress

I loved my sister's beautiful wedding dress!  I will never forget the day she tried it on.  The look on her face was priceless, she was in love.  It was exactly how any bride trying on her dress for the first time should look!
She found it at Bridal Galleria in San Francisco and it was designed by Monique Lhuillier

Julie looked stunning in it on her big day.  Shortly after her wedding, my mom brought to our attention that Vanessa Minnillo wore a very similar Monique Lhuillier dress on her big day marrying Nick Lachey!  Their wedding was July 15th. (My sister's was July 16th)

Here are a few other pictures of my sister in her gown:

My sister's dress was a two piece.  
She didn't set out to find a Lhuillier gown, but when she tried it on, it was the perfect fit for her.  Lucky for her, she found her gown during a trunk show of all of Lhuillier's new season dresses!

I saw Vanessa's gown in a magazine and immediately thought of your sister!!!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Monique Lhuillier - if I got married again, I would have one of her dresses (never gonna happen of course!!)

I love the details on your sister's dress - the sash, the bodice, just stunning.

And love the close-up of the purple dresses in these photos....stunning!! X
