The bride wore an off-the-shoulder style gown made of ivory satin. The gown was trimmed in faux arctic fur at the shoulder and cuffs and had a slim, floor-length hem with a back slit. She wore a detachable, chapel-length train made of matching satin material.

She carried a bouquet of roses, german statice, hypericum berries, white bunnytails, gold baby's breath, ivy, and Christmas greenery. The bouquet was adorned with red beads and gold ribbon.
