The perfect wedding dress can make you feel on top of the world—and Star Jones' gorgeous gown did just that. And when you look and feel that good, you may as well let everyone know it. Hence, the truly extra grand entrance Star Jones made at her wedding ceremony, featuring four men and feather fans. We.👏 Are.👏 Here for it.👏

The former The View cohost married her husband, Ricardo Lugo, aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise in the Bahamas over the weekend. The bride opted for a halter Dennis Basso gown, a surprisingly traditional pick for a very tropical wedding. The dress featured a bow neck tie detail and flared skirt, which she chose with the help of Basso himself.

According to PEOPLE, Jones' wedding dress was so perfect for her, her rep even said that she felt like “a beautiful Basso black Barbie bride.”

Prior to her trip down the aisle, the bride made a trip to Kleinfeld Bridal for a dress tailoring and to find the perfect headpiece to go with her frock. Jones stayed in her mermaid-style dress all night, from the altar to the dance floor. She recently shared a photo of herself and her new husband during the ceremony, writing in the caption, "The happiest day of my life is the day I became Mrs Lugo! In the immortal words of Shug Avery... 'I’s married now!'"

The couple's celebration included some well-known guests like Tina Knowles-Lawson and Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Phaedra Parks. Both guests wore stunning white attire to the affair, but that didn't seem to bother the bride—the three were spotted smiling in pictures together from the evening.

Jones was married to Wall Street exec Al Reynolds until their divorce in 2008. Eight years after her divorce, she and Lugo went public with their relationship, and he popped the question a year later in 2017.

“This is my family,” she previously told PEOPLE of her relationship with Lugo. “I’m not married, but we’re together.” And just two years later, they finally tied the knot!
