Deena went with a classic ball gown for her walk down the aisle. "When Deena tried this particular dress on, she cried," Deena's mom told OK! "She continued to try other dresses on, but we said we would hold this dress to the end. She put it on again, and she cried and said, 'Ma, this is the dress.'"
