Celebrity Wedding...

Lauren Bush exchanged vows with David Lauren over Labour Day weekend in a 200-year-old barn on the designer's sprawling 17,000-acre Colorado ranch in front of 200 guests.
Lauren, niece of former President George W. Bush and granddaughter of former President George H.W. Bush, married David Lauren, the youngest son of fashion legend Ralph Lauren in a wedding that felt western inspired and tranquil, without compromising with the glamour of a celebrity wedding.

The dress? Well, it doesn’t get any easier if your father in law to be is the masterful Ralph Lauren. The end result took 100 craftsmen more than 3,000 hours to create. The top layer of the gown, made of antique ivory tulle, was hand-embroidered with flowers and Renaissance-era scroll designs in silk and metallic thread. Swarovski Elements crystals and off-white pearl beads finished off the look.

Apart from the stunning dress, we love David's proposal story:
David suggested they meet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to look at some new pictures before attending a holiday dinner nearby. Because they met at the Costume Institute gala in 2004 and have celebrated that anniversary by attending every Met gala since, the museum is one of the couple’s favourite sentimental places. When Lauren arrived at the place where they had agreed to meet, no one was there except David. The artwork he wanted her to see was not the museum’s latest Old Masters acquisition but photographs of the couple that spanned their seven happy years together, blown up and displayed around the room. “I created our own exhibition of our life together,” David says. “And I got down on my knee and proposed. Then we went outside and took a carriage ride with a clarinetist and a saxophonist following us.”
