Princess Eugenie had not one but two dream dresses on her royal wedding day.

After teaming up at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on Friday in a tailor-made, long-sleeved, ivory ivory dress by British designer Peter Pilotto, Eugenie transformed herself into a beautiful silk dress by American designer Zac Posen Private evening reception at the Royal Lodge.

Eugenie's groom, Jack Brooksbank, changed out of his day suit and into an elegant black suit for the evening celebrations.

The couple released the stunning shot of photographer Alex Bramall before the evening reception along with three more new portraits on Saturday.

Posen says he was inspired by the beauty of Windsor and the surrounding countryside for the ethereal second look of the royal bride.

The color reflects the blush of an English rose, and Posen says he was inspired by the White Rose of York. In fact, a white rose from York is subtly embroidered on both the shoulder and the back of the dress that hold the cape detail together.

The plissé silk fabric cut into signature draping at the bottom of the dress comes from the British mill, Biddle Sawyer Silk.

Eugenie adorned her hair with a hair chute owned by her grandmother, Queen Elisabeth. The Haarsutsche, which can also be worn as a brooch, was commissioned in 1830 by William IV for Queen Adelaide. The wheat ear brooches were passed on to Queen Victoria in 1837 and to the Queen in 1952. Since then, the monarch wears them as hair clips and brooches.

Eugenie followed a royal tradition in which several princesses were transformed into a second dress for their evening reception.

Kate Middleton also changed her royal wedding to Prince William in 2011. For her and Prince William's reception at Buckingham Palace, Kate slipped into another dress designed by Alexander McQueen's creative director Sarah Burton: a white satin strapless evening dress with a circle of skirt and rhinestone details around the waist (her wedding dress was also McQueen).

Eugenie and her new husband, Jack Brooksbank, joined some 800 guests for their private evening reception at the Royal Lodge, three miles from Windsor Castle, which is the royal residence of Eugenie's father, Prince Andrew, whom he shares with his ex Sarah Ferguson shares.

The newly weds stormed from Windsor Castle after their lunch reception in a James Bond-inspired Aston Martin. Guests at their evening reception were invited to a performance by a guest, pop star Robbie Williams – whose 6-year-old daughter Theodora served as one of the delightful bridesmaids.

A gourmet pizza truck provided food and Casamigos Margaritas was the cocktail of choice. (Jack works as a brand manager for the Tequila brand, founded by George Clooney and Rande Gerber, before selling the company for $ 1 billion last year.)
