Markle was a vision in white as she walked down the aisle Saturday to greet Prince Harry.

Her wedding gown, made out of triple silk organza, featured an open bateau neckline with three-quarter-length sleeves.

It was designed by British designer Clare Waight Keller, 47, who became the first female artistic director to head the house of Givenchy.

"After meeting Ms. Waight Keller in early 2018, Ms. Markle chose to work with her for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour," a press release from Kensington Palace read. "Ms. Markle also wanted to highlight the success of a leading British talent who has now served as the creative head of three globally influential fashion houses -- Pringle of Scotland, ChloƩ, and now Givenchy."

Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, had escorted the bride to St. George's Chapel before Markle confidently walked the first half of the aisle on her own, followed by her bridesmaids and page boys.

Prince Charles, the next King of England, then walked his new daughter-in-law down the second half of the aisle.

Curry, the head of the Episcopal Church, spoke passionately about the power of love and at one point quoted Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world," he said. "Love is the only way. There's power in love. Don't underestimate it. Don't even over-sentimentalize it. There's power, power in love."
