Candice Crawford didn’t need to try on wedding gowns while planning her nuptials to Tony Romo; years before he popped the question, she’d already found the one. Taken by a flowing St. Pucchi gown designed by Rani Totman, the bride-to-be kept a photo of the dress, and ordered it “the moment she got engaged,” a rep for the brand tells PEOPLE. Crawford finally got to wear her dream dress on Saturday, when she tied the knot with her football star beau in Dallas, Texas. Working closely with Totman, Crawford oversaw the alterations of the sleeveless ball gown, which featured a Queen Anne collar and deep-V neckline. Made with 100 percent pure silk duchess satin, the dress’s bodice was handcrafted in a floral pattern and accented with ostrich feathers, rhinestones and crystal beading. Crawford customized her gown with a keyhole back, too, and opted for a draped, voluminous skirt with a detachable semi-cathedral train. Totman, also based in Dallas, says it was “a true pleasure” to work with the young bride. “It was an incredible experience watching the dress come to life on her,” he says. “Candice has a true eye for styles that accentuate her natural beauty.” —Kate Hogan
