GMA’s Robin Roberts’ Dreams Are Coming True As Wedding Plans Unfold
Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts and her fiancée, Amber Laign, are taking their 18-year romance to the next level.
As the lovebirds are counting down the days until they tie the knot, they decided to give their fans a sneak peek inside the plans for their upcoming wedding celebration. As GMA celebrates the couple’s “Road to the Ring,” Roberts and Laign shared hints on everything from their wedding theme to their wedding gowns and cake.
“The wedding is the feeling of an enchanted garden,” Laign shared about the theme. “Our colors are white, blush, pink, a little bit of green, ethereal.” Wedding planner JoAnn Gregoli is helping the couple design and orchestrate their special day. “When they came to me back in January, we were just talking about where it was going to take place and what their vision was, and they kept using keywords, ethereal, romantic, Midsummer’s Night Dream,” Gregoli said. “And that is the catapult [that] kind of takes you from the actual concept to the creation.”
The wedding venue will be decked out with a detailed layout, including their monogram, bountiful flowers, a dance floor anchored by a round table, and a custom bar for their special day. “Wow is the word, and you just hope that when you express what it is that you’re hoping that that special day, not just for ourselves but for our family and friends who are going to be there, we want it not just [to] be a joyous occasion for us, but for them as well,” Roberts said. “It makes your dream come true.”
The couple shopped around for wedding dresses with designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka but decided to reveal their final dresses on their wedding day.
Of course, Roberts and Laign understand there is no wedding without the perfect cake. To ensure their guests have a savory dessert, the couple held a cake tasting at Vincenzo Salvatore Cakes, which presented them with options such as a brown butter banana cake and one flavored with orange ginger.
GMA threw a bachelorette party for Roberts and Laign earlier in August.

As previously reported by BLACK ENTERPRISE, Roberts announced plans to wed Laign in January, something the couple had already discussed but had to put off because of Laign’s illness.
