Young & Restless’ Amelia Heinle Shows off Her ‘Ruby Slippers’ in *New* Behind-The-Scenes Wedding Footage — Plus, Richard Burgi Rates Her on a Scale of One to Ten
‘Ashland’ teases ‘Victoria’ in new backstage footage, and Eric Braeden delivers an incredible monologue.
It’s a huge production to film a wedding on a soap opera, and The Young and the Restless’ Ashland and Victoria nuptials were no exception. That means the actors have time to put in between taping scenes, which often results in a bit of fun. Since fans can’t be there to see those moments between takes, it’s a real treat when we get to see glimpses. Thanks to Amelia Heinle (Victoria), here are a few more from the “Ashtoria” extravaganza:
In a clip captioned, “One last one,” Richard Burgi (Ashland) croons over Heinle’s shoulder as she shows off her “ruby slippers,” aka the shoes she wore with her bridal gown, which aren’t actually ruby, but silver, and very beautiful. As she remarks on the amount of work it takes to look so good, he teases that it’s “kinda like her own triage.” The pair then joke about how “great” she is, with Burgi rating her on a scale of one to ten.
In another fun post, Heinle can be seen dancing around by herself with an imaginary partner and making hilarious gestures as she awaits either a photo shoot in her wedding dress or perhaps Victoria’s walk down the aisle.
A third behind-the-scenes sneak peek deemed “unprofessional” by Heinle shows the crew having a little fun at her expense (as Burgi chuckles in the background) and leaves her pleading, “You guys! Don’t do that to me!”
Finally, we see footage of the one and only Eric Braeden (Victor), who treats everyone within hearing distance to an impressive recitation from Hamlet. Heinle gushed in her caption, “My goodness he is good!” and we certainly can’t argue that point. He’s amazing! See for yourself in the post:
What was your favorite part of the “Ashtoria” wedding? Relive the gorgeous sets and wedding finery in our Ashland and Victoria’s love story in the gallery below.
<p>Sally and Adam are just friends… who’ve made out. Anybody else get the impression from this pic that they’re considering updating their respective Facebook statuses to “It’s Complicated”? </p>
<p>Clearly, Sally has a secret to share with Adam. Of course, if said secret is how hot they look together… we’re afraid that’s not exactly breaking news. </p>
<p>If looking good is the best revenge, Lily’s ex is definitely off somewhere, licking his wounds. </p>
<p>Where Lily and Billy are concerned, the answer to that question appears to be a resounding yes! Who knew attending the wedding of your ex-wife to a man you’re pretty sure is going to break her heart could be such a good time?</p>
<p>What jet lag? Sure, it takes about 12 hours to fly from Wisconsin to Italy, but we’re going to assume Elena slept on the flight. How else to explain how she arrived looking so drop-dead gorgeous? </p>
<p>Oddly enough, whenever Nate enters the room, hearts start beating faster, and we begin wondering, “Is it hot in here, or is it just him?” </p>
<p>Here’s the thing about wedding photographers: Just when you ask yourself, “When are they going to snap our picture?” they do, catching you off guard. Fortunately for Nate and Elena, they look better “off guard” then we’ll ever look “on guard”! </p>
<p>There’s a reason they call him “Smilin’ Jack,” and you’re gazing at it. Given how great he looks in this tux, you can be forgiven if you mistook him for either the groom or James Bond! </p>
<p>Sure, we didn’t actually get to see <a href="https://soaps.sheknows.com/the-young-and-the-restless/news/611317/young-restless-kyle-summer-fans-deserve-real-wedding/" target="_blank">Summer walk down the aisle</a> — we’re gonna be bitter about that one for a while — but it’s not hard to imagine just how gorgeous she must have looked in her Marchetti original.</p>
<p>Given that Jack looked like he stepped right out of an old-school Bond flick, it should be no surprise that his son looks like the up-and-comer ready to take on his first mission. “Abbott. Kyle Abbott.” </p>
<p>Looks like Kyle lost this round of rock, paper, scissors and, as a result, will have to do the chicken dance with his new wife. Good thing Summer’s not the type to gloat about her victory… much. </p>
<p>Kyle and Summer faced more than a few obstacles over the years, so they’ve definitely earned their happily ever after. Of course, this being a soap, who knows how long it will actually last! </p>
<p>This picture is downright adorable… although it gets a tiny bit awkward when you remember that for a while there, it looked as if Summer was Jack’s daughter and Kyle’s half sister! Perhaps best not to think on that too much… </p>
<p>Leslie Brooks may not have lived in Genoa City for many years, but she still has friends in high places… namely, Victor and Nikki, who were able to arrange for the world-famous pianist to put in a special appearance at the wedding! </p>
<p>Given how much Nick and his sister have been bickering of late, we can’t help but think he’s glad to have son Noah by his side for Victoria’s big day. Meanwhile, we can’t wait to see what newly returned Noah gets up to now that he’s home from London. (Anyone else suspect there might be a broken heart or two across the pond?) </p>
<p>Nikki’s got her reservations about Ashland, but that’s really nothing new. She also had concerns about Ryan… and Cole… and Brad… and Billy. As it turns out, mother really does know best in most cases. </p>
<p>Victoria learned everything she knows about love and relationships from her parents, Victor and Nikki. Now what that says about her future with Ashland is open to interpretation! </p>
<p>Much as Tessa hoped Mariah might join her in Tuscany, she knew this was too big an opportunity to pass up. (Meanwhile, how much are we loving the fringe on this outfit?) </p>
<p>If this picture doesn’t make you go “Awww!” you might have the same syndrome as did the Grinch before his heart grew three sizes that day. You know, the day he heard the Whos down in Whoville singing. And now we can’t stop thinking that Harrison could easily be the twin brother of little Cindy Lou Who. </p>
<p>Of course, we saved the best for last. Despite any qualms she might have, given recent revelations about the groom, Victoria’s going into her wedding day with a smile on her face and looking downright gorgeous! </p>
<p>Life’s been pretty stressful for Victoria of late, so here’s hoping that once she becomes the newest Mrs. Ashland Locke, the bride hits the dance floor with abandon. Enjoy it while it lasts, because we sense trouble is right around the corner… </p>
