Spain part 3: la novia

I couldn't stay for Maria's wedding because I had another wedding in DC the same weekend. Luckily, I got to go to Maria's last dress fitting so I could see the bride in her gorgeous gown. She commissioned her dress from a designer named Helena Mareque. She wanted something that felt vintage, like something out of a Jane Austen novel. The finished product perfectly suited Maria's style and she looked so beautiful and happy.
