Real Wedding | Chanel + Derick

Not only did Chanel + Derick plan their perfect “Beach Chic” destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico…but today’s featured bride had the pleasure of meeting the designer Lazaro, himself (and he customized the gown top and bottom just for Chanel) I love that! Things not to miss about this warm breeze of a wedding: crisp white horse drawn carriage, vibrant turquoise and pink color scheme, a super glamorous wedding party and the romantic ocean view.  Cheers to the happy couple!

Chanel’s Dress Search
I started my dress search online, with the mermaid style dress in mind.  I choose this style of dress as I knew it would compliment my body type and add just the right touch to our wedding venue. 

How Chanel Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Amazing, Stunning, Flawless

Why Chanel Decided To Sell Her Wedding Dress
I had the most humbling experience with the purchase of my dress, in that I met Lazaro himself.  In having met Lazaro at a trunk show, he not only sketched me in my dress adding my “Something Blue” Christian Louboutin shoes, but Lazaro also signed the sketch and customized the dress (top and bottom) for me.  So, with having that experience, coupled with not having a daughter to give my dress to, I decided to share my joy with a bride-to-be, in hopes of helping her realize her wedding dreams.
