CRISTINA DUNCAN- A Panama Fairytale

By | Blog

Billie Genovese takes our breath away with her bridal photos. This gorgeous designer selected Lian Rokman to celebrate her wedding day.
What is her journey and why did she choose Lian Rokman Haute Couture?

Introduce Yourself:

My name is Cristina Duncan. I am 35 years old from Panama.I got married in January 12 2019 in Panama at the American Trade Hotel with a beautiful Pavo Dress

Why did you choose the Pavo Bridal Gown?

I purchased my dress at Gaudi Novias in Panama. I knew what I was looking for.I was 33 at the time so I wanted something elegant but sexy. My wedding took place during summer with a rooftop civil ceremony wedding following a ballroom reception. 

I only tried on 2 dresses and I fell in love with Pavo right away.

At the store they gave me the option to modify it directly with Lian Rokmans team so they sent my dress and got it back a few months later exactly how i wanted it

 What is a beautiful moment?

My dream dress represented me and our wedding in every sense. Age, and style appropriate.  I was getting married at 33, bit “late” for our latin culture standards haha, I was officially becoming a stepmom of 4 beautiful children who I love with all my heart. During the ceremony I read out my vows to my husband and the children. It was a very emotional and special moment for everyone

Tell about where you are today:

Right now almost 3 years later I’m happily married and a mother of one beautiful baby boy
