Finding the perfect wedding dress takes time but once you've got it you just know it. Adding the right accessories to round out the look just makes the whole thing better and one bride beautifully mastered her wedding day look, completely taking our breath away.
Ashley Powell tied the knot to the love of her life in a gorgeous Bahamian wedding last year but her photos are still just as wonderful as can be.
Beautiful bride @ashleytara1 and her dapper groom celebrated their first year anniversary earlier this month! Can hardly believe it's been a year already! The #lovebirds gorgeous wedding is featured in the winter issue of #BlackBrideMagazine Wishing the happy couple a lifetime of love and happiness together!! #blackbride1998 #bahamianwedding #bahamas #wedding @stanlophotography #sister #husband #love #atlantis #bridalparty

This bride takes bling to a whole new level and we're totally here for it.
Not only is Ashley's shoulder piece making us squeal with joy but can we talk about this veil being absolutely gone with the wind fabulous!
