In a heartwarming celebration of love, "Good Morning America" co-anchor Robin Roberts and Amber Laign recently exchanged vows in an intimate backyard wedding ceremony surrounded by their loved ones. The couple, who had been together for 18 years, chose to make their commitment official in a special and magical way.
Adding to the enchantment of the day, both Roberts and Laign donned custom-made magical wedding gowns created by renowned designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka. The designers, who have worked with Roberts on various occasions in the past, expressed their excitement and gratitude at being part of this significant moment in the couple's lives.
According to Badgley and Mischka, the design process began with sketches, fabric swatches, and discussions. They wanted to ensure that the dresses not only reflected the personal style of each bride but also complemented each other perfectly. Roberts opted for a chic crepe gown with an off-the-shoulder design and a rhinestone neckline, while Laign chose an ethereal draped satin gown with a tulle train. The designers took care to incorporate details that showcased the unique preferences of each bride.
Roberts' dress was inspired by her love for simplicity and classic silhouettes. The designers aimed to highlight her statuesque figure and powerful presence. On the other hand, Laign's gown exuded vintage charm and romanticism, capturing her softer style. A playful detail, a slit, was added to Laign's gown to accommodate her love for dancing.
The final fittings of the wedding gowns were kept a surprise, as the couple did not want to see each other in their dresses until the wedding day. Both Badgley and Mischka described the fittings as romantic and charming, witnessing the chemistry between the two brides that resembled a fairytale unfolding. The designers were moved by the tender moments, silent exchanges, and the twinkle in their eyes.
On the day of the celebration, when Roberts and Laign FaceTimed Badgley and Mischka, the dresses, alongside hair, makeup, and jewelry, brought their vision to life in a way that exceeded expectations. The designers expressed their deep appreciation for being entrusted with the creation of these special garments, emphasizing the honor they felt in contributing to such a significant milestone in Roberts and Laign's love story.
