Eye Candy Friday : v105 {ostrich feathers, rhinestones + crystal beading}

Today's Eye Candy Friday is a bit different - but equally stunning. St. Pucchi Designer Rani Totman {who you may remember from the latest issue of The Best Wedding Sites Magazine} recently designed the dream wedding gown for the Tony Romo-Candice Crawford Nuptials.

St. Pucchi designer Rani Totman designed a custom wedding gown for Candice Crawford's nuptials to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo on May 28th at Arlington Hall in Dallas, TX.

The gown, from St. Pucchi's couture collection, was customized to create a one-of-a-kind dress of Candice's dreams. Working closely with Rani Totman and in collaboration with exclusive retailer Stardust Celebrations, Candice opted for a natural off-white version of the sleeveless ball gown with regal Queen Anne collar and deep-V neckline.  The dress is crafted with 100% pure silk duchess satin, a textured bodice that showcases hand crafted dimensional cutwork embroidery in a floral pattern accented with delicate ostrich feathers, rhinestone jewels, and crystal beading. The bodice was customized to include a keyhole back and complemented by a luxurious draped voluminous skirt with a detachable semi-cathedral train.

Crawford knew from the start the exact dress she wanted having kept a photo of her dream gown for many years. Crawford was drawn to the Dallas headquartered bridal house St. Pucchi for its Couture craftsmanship, calling her dress "a work of art".

"Working with Candice on her wedding gown was a true pleasure," said Totman. "It was an incredible experience watching the dress come to life on her. Candice has a true eye for styles that accentuate her natural beauty."
