Our cover girl is officially married! Model Arlenis Sosa, who fronts our June/July 2015 issue, tied the knot with her love, basketball player Donnie McGrath, in a gorgeous wedding in her native Dominican Republic. And as expected from one of our cover stars, she was an incredibly beautiful bride!
First thing is first: Let's talk dress. From the looks of our cover shoot, we knew this Victoria's Secret model could rock a gown, but she blew us away in her lace illusion long sleeve Reem Acra sheath and trailing veil. The dress fit her like a glove, and her pared-down beauty look and slicked back hair let it shine even more. Reem Acra herself posted the blushing bride on her Instagram, and we just can't get enough of this look!
The entire wedding, which hosted around 150 guests, had an island vibe, with a fresh white orchid bouquet and all white floral arrangements at the end of the aisle. Sosa's now-hubby, too, wore a pale orchid-hued suit.
To commemorate the occasion, Sosa shared a few pictures to her Instagram account. One, of their first kiss, was captioned with the simple and sweet "Mr. and Mrs. McGrath." While next to a photo of their recessional, Sosa wrote: "Walking out as MR & MRS McGrath #admwedding happiness!! Que felicidad!! Gracias @iccdominicana soy la novia mas feliz del mundo."
Sosa also posted a sweet picture with some of her best friends, writing: "So happy to be able to share the best day of my life with my girls!! @jenellephillip @laisribeiro @hanamayeda @tonigarrn @realanaismali my love, you should of not hide from this ðŸ“· but of course you went to enjoy the cocktail hour I love you girls."
Some of Sosa's besties shared sweet mementos from the day as well. Fellow model Lais Ribeiro wrote: "And there she is! The most beautiful bride and her groom. Wishing happiness and much love! Love you both #ADMwedding."
The wedding was truly stunning. Congrats to our cover star and her brand-new husband!
