The Royal Wedding

 I'm loving Kate's dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. It's so simple and elegant yet refined and fit for a princess. 
 The veil is stunning and the 1936 Cartier Tiara borrowed from the Queen is the perfect accessory. 
 They make such a cute couple. 
 And the tradition continued of waiting until they get to the balcony of the Buckingham Palace to have their first kiss as husband and wife. 
 The cake is very traditional and regal, perfect for this wedding, and bringing back a lot of old-fashioned cake decorating techniques. 
And the getaway car fit for James Bond was adorned with balloons, ribbons and a "just wed" sign on the back as the couple drove off. Love, love, love. I can't wait to see images of all the royal receptions.

Love how they honored all the royal traditions and classic wedding details...and yet worked in several very personal and real touches. So impressive and endearing at the same time!
