061507: Venezuelan Wedding for Telenovela Star Gaby Espino

On June 14, 2007, the warm glow of candlelight created a radiant pathway to the altar for Venezuelan telenovela actress Gaby Espino as she took the arm of the man who had watched her grow from a little girl into the beautiful woman who was saying “I do” in Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe church in Caracas that evening to model Cristóbal Lander. Looking out from behind the blusher of her lace-edged veil, the bride could see family and friends as they rose from the pews in her honor as she walked past in a white, lace-embellished gown created with long, illusion sleeves by designer Piera Ferrari. The groom, equally as stylish, donned a black Giovanni Scutaro tuxedo for the occasion, which he paired with a white bow tie.

Following the religious blessing of their union, the newlyweds enjoyed a reception held at La Quinta La Esmeralda in Campo Alegre, where bridesmaids in orange and tan-hued Johnny Straccia dresses danced the night away to salsa and merengue tunes as guests feasted on roast beef and salmon.
