She’s off the market! Elizabeth Gillies tied the knot with Michael Corcoran in an intimate ceremony on August 8. On Wednesday, September 16, the Dynasty star posted a slew of photos on Instagram from the big day.
In one snap, Gillies looked stunning in her gorgeous wedding dress and veil, while another photo showed Gillies and her hubby exchanging vows in front of a floral arch. “8•8•20,” the brunette beauty captioned the posts. Gillies wore a dress by Britt Wood Designs, Jimmy Choo shoes and blue jewels.
The pair was originally supposed to get married on April 25 but changed the date due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. “Once we saw how dire the situation was, we knew we had to postpone,” she told Vogue in an interview published on September 16.
“It was a no-brainer for us,” she continued. “Aside from the obvious travel and crowd restrictions, it didn’t feel right to be celebrating in such a big way when there was so much going on in the world. It would have been poor taste to burden people by asking them to risk their lives to come to our wedding. There were more important things to focus on. Our wedding could wait.”
Corcoran, 47, echoed similar thoughts: “It really focused everything down to what matters in life. A big, extravagant experience in the middle of a pandemic didn’t make any sense.”
The original plan was for Gillies and Corcoran to get married at the St. Regis in Atlanta, Georgia, but they switched locations to the Inn at Fernbrook Farms in New Jersey with only 10 attendees.
Of course, the Victorious alum was super careful before the nuptials. “We got tested before we left and quarantined with my family for two weeks before the wedding,” she shared. “With everything going it, it felt so nice to be in my childhood home with nothing to do but relax leading up to the big day. We cooked and took the dogs for long walks and really just enjoyed each other’s company.”
“It felt good to slow down. Overall, we were very fortunate to be able to safely spend this time with family,” she revealed. “It was incredibly special.”
The ceremony — which was planned in less than a month — went off without a hitch. “It has been such a long road for us, and at times [it] felt like a total impossibility that it was hard to believe we’d actually gotten to that moment where it was really happening,” she explained. “Once we were exchanging vows, it hit me that my dad was marrying us and our loved ones were there, and I think I turned to Michael and mouthed, ‘Oh, my God, we actually did it.’ We were so happy.”
At the end of the day, Gilles revealed that their wedding was just perfect. “I’m very happy with the way ours turned out. I don’t think I would’ve had it any other way,” she said. “At the end of the day, it’s about you and the person you love. The rest doesn’t matter.”
Congrats, you two!
