Oh my gosh, ladies. Wedding dresses. Pointe shoes. WEDDING DRESSES AND POINTE SHOES. I think I just lost my mind.
This summer was huge for NYC dancer brides. You already know about Tiler Peck's wedding to fellow New York City Ballet principal Robbie Fairchild. But they weren't the only happy couple. NYCB soloist Ashley Laracey tied the knot with dancer and choreographer Troy Schumacher, and Brittany Pollack, also a City Ballet soloist, said "I do" to former NYCB principal Jonathan Stafford.
Across Lincoln Center Plaza, six—count 'em, 6!—American Ballet Theatre gals were engaged as of this spring, and five have since gotten married. To celebrate the marriage mania, Brides magazine dressed them up in one-of-a-kind wedding dresses for its October/November issue.

In Brides, ABT principal Isabella Boylston modeled a dress by Elizabeth Stuart. It's strikingly similar to the first gorgeous gown, designed by Cushie et Ochs, she wore at her wedding this July. (She wore a different dress later, because, of course.)

Former corps member Nicola Curry (she plans to join Australian Ballet) got to play in an ethereal gown designed by Mira Zwillinger. It's not exactly similar to the dress she wore in real life—but one look at her Instagram feed makes it clear her wedding day was totally dreamlike.

And here's Brittany DeGrofft's get-up by David Fieldon Sposa in Brides. DeGrofft is a super-new newlywed—she and fellow corps member Patrick Ogle got hitched on Tuesday! Congrats, lovebirds!
