“The Run for the Roses” is no time to be a shrinking violet, and neither is your wedding day. Bloom in front of family and friends with the high impact drama of red roses, like these seen in the foreground of the of the white-wash spires of Churchill Downs. Our own Pnina Tornai corset-style ballgown and hat heighten the drama, with a firm foothold in red patent-leather Valentino heels. Let your guests drink it all in with the unmistakeable freshness of a mint julep cocktail–the perfect touch to an exquisite equestrienne event. What details would you add to your dream derby wedding?
