When I decide to do a post on weddings I love in the media, they have to be a wedding where I IMMEDIATELY gasp with a “wow”!! When I first saw these pics in Vogue last year on model Caroline Trentini’s wedding…I did just that! Swoon!!! After announcing their engagement on Twitter last November 2011, model Caroline Trentini and photographer Fabio Bartelt were married March 3rd, 2012 at a church in Santa Catarina, Brazil. Trentini wore a dress and veil designed by Oliver Theyskens — with a bit of a resemblance to Kate Middleton’s wedding gown… Gorgeous is all I have to say!!
“When Caroline Trentini was fifteen, the model began a running joke with Olivier Theyskens that one day, he would design her wedding dress, and over the years the two playfully renewed the pact backstage at his shows and whenever they met. Oliver Theyskens approached the dress as a representation of the bride herself: a contrast, as he puts it, between strength and sweetness. He chose a dense gold satin coated in white pigment, which appeared faintly matte gray in the evening light in Itajaí, Brazil, the beachside town where the wedding took place and where Bartelt was raised. For a touch of delicacy, the dress was overlaid with white lace, forming a plunging neckline and gracefully slim sleeves. “The fabric is where something was happening,” Theyskens says, though the satin did not arrive from Italy until a week before the wedding.”
Let us gawk over these gorgeous pics!
