In a union of beauty and bloodlines, Patricia Cristina Herrera y Pacanins of New York and Caracas, Venezuela, and Gerrit Livingston Lansing Jr. of Greenwich, Conn., were married Saturday in an exquisite ceremony at St. Ignatius Loyola Church on Park...

It is no surprise that glamour runs in the Herrera family and that they dress accordingly. So what’s better than having a glamorous mother, famous for designing wedding dresses, design your very own? Patricia walked down the aisle in white crepe satin with long sleeves embroidered in tiny rosettes of the same material. The skirt gathered in the back and an 18th century diamond brooch held her veil in place. Her hair was gathered in a picturesque snood embroidered in the same rosettes.

Patricia’s striking sister Carolina Herrera Jr. also dressed by her mother, was the bride’s only attendant and looked like a Greek goddess in a long column of iridescent pale blue-gray chiffon with a gathered tunic tied with brown velvet ribbons. Carolina Sr. dressed herself in burgundy chiffon under a floor-length burgundy velvet coat with a sable collar and cuffs. She dressed her two adorable grandchildren, Oriana, 5, and her brother, Axel Calicchio, 3, who preceeded the bride down the aisle in blue satin printed with tiny flowers, little slippers to match and white gloves, and blue velvet trousers and a beige ruffled shirt, respectively, of course.

She also designed the dress of the lovely mother of the groom, a chic cognac satin coat dress with tiny buttons running down the front.

But more of all this next week — the brilliant reception after the wedding and, naturally, the gorgeous guests.
