Even though just one photo and a few small details have been released from Allison Williams and Ricky Van Veen’s weekend nuptials, we still have major wedding-envy. From the secret Wyoming ranch location (learn more about it here!) to her amazing Oscar de la Renta gown (check out a similar style from the most recent collection), we’re absolutely swooning. Oh yeah, and then there’s the fact that everyone from Mindy Kaling to Lena Dunham to Katy Perry was there, and Tom Hanks was the officiant. It really doesn’t get much better than that.

At first glance this video has all the makings of a hit rom-com. A beautiful wedding, hilarious speeches, great music, and of course, Kevin Hart.  Much like the movies she’s starred in, Gabrielle Union’s wedding to  Dwyane Wade at Chateau Artisan in Miami, Florida on August 30, was the perfect blend of romance and fun. The first thing that made our jaws drop? The venue. The actress and her longtime basketball superstar love married at a modern-day castle surrounded by a moat, a perfect fit for the rom-com princess. The bride was walked down the aisle in a strapless sweetheart ball gown by Dennis Basso by Dwyane’s two sons and his nephew. Of course, no celebrity wedding is complete without the vocals of John Legend, who performed the ceremony music. A reception followed in a big room with floor-to-ceiling windows where Kevin Hart toasted the couple. Gabrielle herself also made a speech telling guests “dreams do come true,” which was followed by a gospel choir performance. Guests, which included Ludacris, ended the night by showing off their best moves on the dance floor. Talk about an uplifting reception!
