The inspiration:

Alana Newhook & Grant Matthews | May 28, 2017

“I think every bride should go a bit out of their comfort zone, and a reception dress is such a fun way to do that.”
–Alana Newhook


The bride wore two custom gowns by Nardos Design. For the reception, Alana chose a modern look featuring structured rosettes. “It was a truly magical dress,” she says.
