Here Come the Brides!

Whether you’re or not planning a wedding, make sure to check out the October/November issue of Brides magazine for a seriously dance-inspired photo spread. The models? Six American Ballet Theatre dancers, all of who were engaged at the time of the shoot last spring (five have since gotten hitched). Isabella Boylston, Brittany DeGrofft, Cassandra Trenary, Lauren Post, Elina Miettinen and Nicola Curry (who’s joining the Australian Ballet this season) are shown donning gorgeous designer wedding gowns in all shapes, lengths and colors—sur la pointe, of course. As an added bonus, Brides released this behind-the-scenes video of the shoot. Enjoy!
