Eniko Parrish: all the details on her stunning wedding gowns

hellomagazine.com

Earlier this month Eniko Parrish married comedian Kevin Hart in a romantic Californian ceremony, and dazzled their 200 guests in two stunning Vera Wang gowns. For the ceremony she wore a dress with an intricate lace bodice and figure-hugging, multi-layered skirt.

Switching things up for the reception, Eniko, 31, changed into a gorgeous long sleeved sheer number, which Vera Wang says had a "sumptuous hand placed French Chantilly lace appliqué artfully contoured along the whole gown".

Eniko Parrish wore two beautiful dresses for her big day

The story behind Eniko's dresses is a seriously romantic one; 37-year-old Kevin only wanted Vera Wang for his wife-to-be, and used a chance meeting with someone from the team to make it happen.

Eight months before he proposed, Kevin and Eniko were vacationing in Anguilla when they Priya Shukla over cocktails with mutual friends. It turned out Priya is a senior vice president of global relations at Vera Wang – and Kevin took his chance.

Both were designed by Vera Wang - at the insistence of Kevin Hart

During the final dress fitting ahead of the big day, Priya told Vogue he pulled her to one side and insisted Eniko was "the one" and insisted that she could only walk down the aisle in custom Vera Wang. She added: "He totally likes fashion but hasn't been asking any questions. I think he wants to be surprised."

Eniko's first dress took 10 people more than 150 hours to create, and unsurprisingly Vera confessed they can't do something that complex for all of their clients.

She said: "This is only in couture. When I do couture it is such a one-of-a-kind – in a good way – painstakingly private, intimate process where you really are also able to collaborate with the client. They were both dresses that were custom-designed for her, inspired by the lookbook, but not literal. She is too couture for that!"
