Romance Redefined
From blush tones and cascading ruffles to adorned headpieces and scalloped hemlines, this yearís bridal gown trends may err toward nontraditional, but their attention to detail remains beautifully intricate and utterly feminine. Here, our bride explores the romantic setting that is the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum ó a Milwaukee landmark brimming with architectural beauty, elegance and a European-esque sense of place.
