Marlien possesses a quiet confidence. As I was looking at her photos and her gorgeous green eyes, I couldn’t help but think of the words of Peter. He states that is not fancy hair, gold jewelry, or fine clothes that should make you beautiful. No, your beauty should come from inside you –the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. That beauty will never disappear and it is worth very much to God.
Marlien has that. Her presence brings with it a sense of serenity.
Back to her dress…which not unlike the bride, was super beautiful! A classic creation made from stretch lining, and a beaded Chantilly lace bodice with a nude mesh neckline and back. The skirt was fashioned from layered silk tulle and had a slight elongated tulle train at the back. The look was finished with a beautiful bejeweled bracelet and headpiece in a motif similar to the beaded lace on her bodice, neckline and back. Simple, yet stunning!
