Laura Benanti, who is most notable for her roles on the hit TV shows Supergirl and Nashville, was married in a private ceremony at Riverside Church in New York City this past Sunday, November 15th. She wed beau Patrick Brown, looking positively timeless in a strapless Alençon lace Anne Barge gown. 

The intimate ceremony and reception included family, friends, and close colleagues, including fellow actors Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Connie Britton, Celia Keenan-Bolger, John Ellison Conlee, Michael Arden, Julie White, and Chelsea Nachman. Musical theatre writer and performer Todd Almond sang his song “Take Good Care of Me” for the couple during the church ceremony.

The moments that photographer Laura Marie Duncan captured are perfection and truly reflect the love that this beautiful couple so clearly has for each other.
