Get the look of Jay Ellis and Nina Senicar’s Italian wedding on a budget! Check out these styles to get the look for less.


Jay Ellis, star of HBO’s Insecure and Top Gun: Maverick, said “I do” to model Nina Senicar on July 9th, 2022 in Tuscany, Italy! The couple was introduced by a mutual friend at a bar in Los Angeles in 2015. Also, that same friend ended up getting ordained so he could officiate the couple’s wedding!

After five years of dating, Ellis proposed on a beach in Bali. The couple knew they wanted their wedding to be in Italy for sentimental reasons. Unfortunately, due to COVID, the wedding date had to be pushed back twice. Thankfully, the third time was the charm!

About The Couple’s Wedding Style

Nina wanted something classic, timeless, and elegant. Celebrity stylist, Apuje Kalu, coordinated with Dolce to create the perfect gown for her ceremony look. Adding extra tulle from a different collection of Dolce & Gabbana created more puff underneath the gown. For jewelry, the bride wore diamond studs for her “something borrowed” from her best friend, and her grandmother’s ring was “something old.” 

Stylist, Apuje Kalu, also helped Ellis create a perfect look for the ceremony. Apuje and Jay Ellis decided to create a custom tuxedo. Ellis wanted to wear something in the Bordeaux color palette. The fabric on the lapel was sourced, the piping was pinched on the lapel, and he put his trust in the rest of the Dolce team to create the perfect look.

Below are looks similar to Ellis’s and Senicar’s that our team has rounded up!
