Real life weddingbee.com winner: Eileen

Back in January of 2009 we hosted a veil giveaway with the beloved weddingbee.com and real bride Eileen O'Rourke was our winner. Check out her stunning Anya birdcage veil by CastleBride Couture.

An urban couple living and working in the Second City, Eileen and Jeremy planned a simple, elegant affair with timeless classic elements. The black and white damask-themed wedding set against the lush backdrop of the Chicago Botanic Garden included little vintage touches like champagne saucers and framed black and white photos of the couple's parents' weddings.

The bride donning a Reem Acra sheath wore her hair in pin curls with pin-up styled makeup. Castle Bride Couture's Anya veil completed her vintage look. Both bride and groom proudly sported matching vintage wedding bands that belonged to the bride's late parents. It was an affair to remember, and Eileen received many compliments on her uniquely vintage-styled look and amazing couture veil.

Thank you, Emily! It's Reem Acra's heavenly (very vintage-y -People asked if it had been my mother's!) It's cleaned and for sale now. Email me at budgles@juno.com if you are interested.
