It takes a major dress to stand out in a crowd that includes stilt walkers, mimes and David Blaine performing magic, but there was no doubt that all eyes were on Lauren Parsekian in her beautiful gown at her wedding to Aaron Paul.

Wearing a Kenneth Pool “Paris” gown by designer Amsale Aberra, the anti-bullying activist showcased her petite figure in the gown’s structured corset top, dropped waist and flowers at the hip just above its dramatic asymmetrically draped tulle skirt.

Parsekian selected the gown after viewing Amsale’s runway show last fall and stopping by the designer’s N.Y.C. salon on her trip. She also outfitted her bridesmaids in different silhouettes of Amsale “vanilla” chiffon dresses.

Said Parsekian of her big day: “The first moment I saw Aaron will forever be the most perfect visual snapshot of my life.” And after seeing her in this jaw-dropping gown, we imagine he felt the same way.
