‘Orange Is the New Black’ Star Danielle Brooks Stuns in Not 1, But 2 Wedding Dresses

There's nothing we love quite like celebrity wedding dresses, and when our favorite stars pull out two (we're looking at you, Paris Hilton), then we get doubly excited.

The latest celeb to have two designs for her special day was Orange Is the New Black star Danielle Brooks. The 32-year-old actress donned a pair of absolutely stunning gowns, with one designed by Christian Siriano and the other crafted by Alonuko designer Oluwagbemisola Okunlola.

Brooks showed off the two dresses, along with husband Dennis Gelin's dapper Garçon Couture tuxedo, in an Instagram post that said, “I’z married now!” Her makeup was done by artist Michael D. Patterson, while her hair was styled by Tish Celestine. The photos were snapped by REEM Photography and the wedding was planned by D'Concierge. Brooks credited all these names in her post and said, “The absolute best to work with: HIRE THEM!!”

Brooks then made individual posts to highlight each of the gowns, as well as thank the designers who made them. In the post for her Siriano gown, she said, “Words can’t express how grateful I am to have a friend like you. You’ve held me down from one of my first carpets to the most important day of my life! I love you and appreciate your friendship! Thank you for my 3 in 1 dress! Love you @csiriano.”

She then made a post for the Alonuko design, saying, “It was very important to me to find a black wedding dress designer. When I tell you I hit jackpot finding @alonuko_bespoke, I hit jackpot. She was incredible to work with and even flew all the way from London two days before my wedding to make sure the dress arrived in time. Thank you for your talent and professionalism! Brides, hire her!!! Thank you for adding to my special day!”

Truly breathtaking. Congrats to the happy couple!
