Eric Trump and Lara Yunaska Wedding Exclusive: See the Bride's Gorgeous Vera Wang Gown Sketches

Posted on

Another Trump bites the dust! Donald Trump’s second son Eric, who serves as Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions for The Trump Organization and appears on the Celebrity Apprentice, married longtime girlfriend Lara Yunaska Saturday at Mar-a-Lago Country Club. And PEOPLE has the exclusive wedding dress sketches (surprise, there were two!) from mega-designer Vera Wang.

Yunaska, 32, walked down the aisle in a dramatic ivory strapless ball gown with a draped corset bodice and floating organza petal skirt. “It was the first dress that I tried on and actually felt like a bride,” she said of the creation. The Inside Edition TV producer specifically sought a “statement” dress for her 400+ guests, saying, “I knew that I needed a dress that would be seen from even the farthest guest’s viewpoint!”

For the reception, the newest Trump — a trained pastry chef, animal advocate, and television producer — changed into a second Wang design, a mermaid gown featuring a piped and pin-tucked drop-waist corset with floating sprig embroidery.

Luckily, the decision to go with Vera Wang was an easy one. The legendary designer is not only a family friend, but she conceived sister-in-law Ivanka Trump’s wedding gown as well. “Vera is a master,” Ivanka said. “As I know from personal experience, there is no one who better understands how a bride wants to look and feel on her wedding day.”

Ivanka’s wedding-day involvement didn’t end there, though. Yunaska wore stunning diamond earrings from the Ivanka Trump Collection and seems to have made quite an impression on her stylish sister-in-law.

“Lara is a stunning bride! I couldn’t be happier to share this special weekend with her and Eric,” Trump told PEOPLE.

Yunaska did face one particularly unique accessories challenge, as she recently broke both of her wrists while horseback riding.

“I had to get creative with a way to make casts look bridal,” she shared. “Fortunately, my wedding planner, Jennifer Zabinski and my designer, Preston Bailey, came up with some fabulously bedazzled gloves to try and blend these casts.”
