One couple invites their guests to a glamorous destination wedding in the Italian town of Siracusa, Sicily, with a traditional cathedral ceremony and reception at an ancient castle.

"There were a lot of dresses I loved, but none of them worked for a grand cathedral. Then I tried on this beautiful blush-and-nude Vera Wang ball gown. The coloring complemented my skin tone—it just stood out," says the bride. "I loved how light it felt, even though it was a ball gown." Photo: Kate Headley
