On Saturday, November 8, Eric Trump and Lara Yunaska got married on the lawn of the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida. The ceremony was attended by 450 guests including family and friends. Present at the wedding were radio personality Eric Duran, Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin, and the entire Trump clan including his mom Ivana and his real estate mogul dad Donald Trump.
Yunaska and Trump exchanged vows at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea, the same place where Donald married his third wife Melania Trump back in 2005. Eric’s three-year-old niece Arabella, daughter of Ivanka Trump, served as the flower girl while Ivanka’s husband officiated the wedding. Eric’s 36-year-old brother Donald Trump Jr. was the best man.
The 31-year-old Yunaska used to work as a personal trainer before getting a job as a producer for CBS’ Inside Edition. The bride wore Vera Wang for the event, but she also sported an accessory not commonly seen during weddings — bandages. Weeks prior to the wedding, Yunaska broke both her wrists during a horse-riding accident.

“There are inherent risks that we all take in life,” she said on her Instagram last month. “When you truly love something, it’s worth it. I wouldn’t take back one day of riding — stuff happens. I will ride again and it will be better than ever. Most importantly, I still get to marry the love of my life on Nov 8th!”
The bandages were barely noticeable thanks to a strategically-placed bouquet of flowers and her injuries being overshadowed by her happiness during the occasion. In an interview with the Daily Mail prior to the wedding, Donald Trump talked about Yunaska’s accident. “It’s too bad. But she’s really strong, and they dig each other, so that’s important,” he told reporters.
According to reports, Yunaska and Trump will be going on a honeymoon in Africa before flying off to France.
