Going for a slightly more fashion forward look, Meghan went with a fit and flare Stella McCartney gown for her reception dress. She finished it with Princess Diana’s large aquamarine ring she wore to her reception.
Of course, there was the traditional boys choir singing hymns during the strategic moments of the ceremony, but there were also a fantastic gospel choir singing a emotional rendition of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me”.
