Real Essense of Australia bride Courtney exchanged vows during the golden hour in Orlando. Courtney and David Fraine were married at The Acre, a gorgeous combination of rustic outdoor charm and tropical whimsy.
Courtney’s true style is dark and romantic, so she featured black, ivory, gold and greenery with an emphasis on greenery and dreamy, dusky candlelight.
David’s proposal to Courtney is something out of a dream. “He took me to the beach in Sanibel. We walked along the ocean, hunting for seashells. He turned around and pulled out the most perfect ring then asked if I would spend the rest of my life with him!
Just like she knew when she met her groom, Courtney knew she had found her perfect wedding dress once she tried on Essense of Australia #D2174. Each detail of this gown is meticulously designed to evoke classic elegance and vintage flair. Sheer lace details complement a modern, fit-and-flare silhouette for an effortless elegance.
Lace wedding dresses are truly a staple in classic bridal style, but as bride Courtney proves, you can accessorize and elevate your dress to match your personal bridal vision perfectly. She specifically chose this gown to emphasize her own style; “I always knew I wanted a wedding dress with a classic high neckline. I have a lot of tattoos and I didn’t want to hide them with sleeves or stray away from my usual look. I think I had my own type of bridal style!”
