Scandal star Kerry Washington made a beautiful bride on the show’s 100th episode on Thursday, April 13. The actress, who plays Washington D.C.-based crisis manager Olivia Pope, finally married Tony Goldwyn’s character, Fitzgerald Grant on the Emmy Award-winning drama. However, it was alternate reality.

Washington, 40, wore a stunning Anne Barge gown in the Berkeley silhouette. The off-shoulder, rouched silk and satin chiffon dress features a full ball gown skirt made of Italian silk kalika.

The piece retails between $4000-$4499. “Berkeley is one of my most special gowns,” Barge said in a release to The Knot and others. “It is both timeless and chic, perfect for a modern, classic bride.”

The actress’ wedding day hairstyle was inspired by singer Janelle Monae’s pearl-accented updo from this year’s Golden Globes. “P.S. my dear @JanelleMonae that wedding hair was TOTALLY inspired by your Golden Globes glam,” Washington shared on Twitter.

Scandal’s costume designer, Lynda Paolo, couldn’t have been happier with the results. “When @kerrywashington walked into the church everyone applauded and Kerry and I laughed with such joy,” she gushed in a post-episode Twitter post. “Such a happy moment #scandal100,”

#BTS Wedding Glam! #scandal #scandal100

The show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, shared a snap of the episode’s script and her inspiration for the scene. “Olivia Pope is in a wedding dress!” the script reads. “And it’s unbelievable, September-issue worthy, amazeballs–alllll of the adjectives.”

Washington may have looked beyond glamorous in her gown, but she was comfortable underneath. She shared an adorable video via Instagram donning a pair of skinny jeans under the dress.

The truth underneath it all. #scandal #scandal100 Gotta be comfy.
