Last night, the stunning squad of Victoria's Secret Angels, including newly winged Kendall Jenner, who took a walk on the bridal side during Chanel's Haute Couture show this summer in Paris, spread their wings down the star studded catwalk, which airs Tuesday, December 8th.
But before strutting their stuff down the VS stage, these Angels were taking flight down a different kind of runway — the aisle! We've gathered up our five favorite bridal and engagement moments from some of Victoria's Secret elite, to reminisce on just how beautifully they've transitioned from the runway to wedding day.

The adorable Instagram dominating couple, who celebrated their big day with a guest list full of A-list stars, including Stevie Nicks, Sublime, and the entire Maroon 5 band, spent their joyous reception by "dancing late into the night," and dining on organic pork chops, fresh fish, and an organic ice cream cart. "Everyone was having so much fun — Adam and Behati didn't stop smiling the entire night," People reported at the time. Prinsloo herself commented on her newlywed life as, "the most amazing thing ever. You're with the person you should be, so it's a very comforting, amazing feeling."

Another familiar face to stun on the cover of BRIDES, newlywed and Victoria's Secret Angel runway pro, Lindsay Ellingson, who "knew it was fate" when running into "tall, dark and handsome" husband Sean Clayton, at New York's Union Square after an initial meeting at an album-launch party the day before. The beauty spilled her love for hubby Sean in our October/November 2014 issue saying, "Sean is everything I ever looked for. I never thought I'd be so lucky." The doting couple exchanged vows in an intimate South Carolina ceremony with 85 of their closest guests last July.
