Newly wed Crown Prince Leka II of Albania and Crown Princess Elia of Albania. The bride looked like a fairytale princess in a classic poufy ball gown, decorated with lace that continued down sheer sleeves, was the perfect pick to make history in, and her veil equally poufy and extra long, only added to that breathtaking factor and delicate tiara for her big day, held at the Palace of Brigades in Tirana, Albania.
