As a cliche with any other weddings, this wedding also had a slight trouble with the bride’s gown, which was delivered at the last moment when Lara ordered the dress to be made in a week. Luckily, there was enough fabric for her dress, so it didn’t take long for the gown to arrive.

The dress was made by designer, Adam Zohar in mermaid style with a high neck and open back with the lace flowing at the bottom which had handmade lace flowers sewn. 

Rick looked as dashing as any groom in a cream blazer, black pant, accompanied by a matching bowtie.
