The model worked closely with the Israeli designer to create the look. Vino tells Us Weekly that Nicole “wanted a non-traditional bridal look” and “to feel comfortable yet still look glamourous.”

“She wanted a more fashion-forward style and approached us based on dresses of ours she had seen online,” Vino added. “As soon as she put on the dress for the first time she started to cry and didn’t want to take it off. It was a perfect fit and looked absolutely stunning on her.”

“Couldn’t be happier after meeting my #weddinggown#designer @julievinobridal & seeing my gown for the first time 🙈👰,” Nicole captioned a selfie with Vino on Instagram October 7.
