Jasmine Tookes Stuns in Zuhair Murad Wedding Gown

The model shares details from her fairytale-like ceremony

Jasmine Tookes has proven that fairy tales do come true. The model took to Instagram to reveal the incredible photos from her September 4 wedding in Ecuador. And while the whole affair was dreamlike, fans can't get enough of the bride's dramatic gown.

The supermodel posted tons of photos revealing a floral lace gown designed by Zuhair Murad. It featured long sleeves, a high collar and a detachable ball gown skirt of Italian tulle and duchess silk. But the most jaw-dropping part of all had to be the 15-foot-long train made from tulle and silk with pearl-and-sequin-embroidered lace trim.

"Thank you for making my classic, timeless & beautiful wedding dress come true," Tookes captioned a photo of the gown. "It is a piece of art!! I want to display it like this forever in my house!"

Tookes told Vogue that she had wanted to walk down the aisle in Zuhair Murad ever since her first couture runway show with the fashion label. She posted: "I sent him my inspiration, and he drew up the most beautiful and timeless dress that I have ever seen." That inspiration was Grace Kelly, the former Princess of Monaco and Academy Award-winning actress. In fact, many friends and guests referred to the bride as Princess Jasmine.

Tookes opted to keep accessories minimal. She donned Ritani earrings, her Ritani engagement ring and custom Sarah Flint white pumps with scalloped blue leather lining. Meanwhile, the groom, Snapchat's Juan David Borrero, wore a double-breasted tuxedo by Armani. "We both wanted to be as classic and traditional as we could with our outfits," said the model.

Bridesmaids, including fellow SI Swimsuit models Josephine Skriver, Sara Sampaio, Kelsey Merritt and Lais Ribeiro, rocked sage-colored gowns from Amsale and jewelry by By Chari.

Of course, the decor was equally stunning. Tookes continues to share behind-the-scenes photos on social media, revealing they had a flower tunnel made from 400,000 roses.

"We designed it with Lorena from Fialo Eventi in Ecuador," she revealed. "She saw my vision right away. Imagine an enchanted garden with the most flowers you have ever seen. Everything was very romantic, candlelit—and with the most amazing violinist playing music. It sort of resembled a giant greenhouse, and there were flowers coming from the ceiling. It was as if each guest was sitting in their own garden while at their table."
