It's been a year since Glee actress Naya Rivera married husband Ryan Dorsey. Even though many didn't see the wedding coming, the couple is clearly in love and Rivera is currently expecting the couple's first child. It's all very adorable, and it's hard not to love the couple, IMHO So when Dorsey shared an anniversary throwback photo of Naya Rivera in her lacy wedding dress, celebrating a year of wedded bliss, I totally "oohed" and "aahed" over the photo for a variety of reasons.
First, their pose is incredibly romantic, and it shows how very in love the couple is, which is certainly enough to make me swoon. Dorsey is cradling Rivera in his arms while he stands in the sand and they share a kiss. That's romantic enough alone, but that dress. That. Dress. Rivera is wrapped in a lot of white lace, with her veil blowing in the wind. The Glee star went super traditional with her choice, at least from this vantage point, which isn't necessarily her usual choice for red carpet gowns. Rivera is known for her super sexy red carpet ensembles and for being daring and unconventional, especially with her role as Santana on the now-defunct Glee. But whether it was in tune with her usual style or not, it's refreshing to see a different look for the actress.
The singer and actress looked way gorgeous and happy on her wedding day. It's refreshing that she went with a time-honored gown.
This is what we're more used to with Rivera. Sexy and skin-baring! This was the happy couple in 2014.
Rivera sure knows how to wear a LBD. I love the sheerness of the top.
See what I mean about supremely sexy? That's totally Rivera's image with her wardrobe. So to see her go more classic for her wedding was a nice style shift.
The star's maternity style is pretty on point, as well.
More sheer and sexy blackness while carrying some precious cargo.
