Tom, Katie and the Fairytale Wedding
Posted on November 18, 2006
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes had their fantasy Italian wedding in the 15th century Odescalchi castle in the Italian town of Bracciano. They both wore Armani outfits to the rehearsal dinner at Nino's in Rome. The couple and baby Suri look really lovely, we have to admit. We especially love that Maestro Armani even designed Katie's bouquet so that it would coordinate with the wedding gown.
Cartier made the wedding rings of white gold with diamonds. For a wedding gift, Katie gave Tom a Vacheron Constantin watch with the words "I Love You" engraved on the back. For her big day, her fragrance choice was Clive Christian No.1 scent. It comes in a diamond and crystal flask and costs over $2,300 an ounce. And underneath the dress, no doubt Katie wore some of the lovely lingerie she picked out in Los Angeles last week. At La Bra Lingerie, Katie reportedly purchased the Chantilly Lace Bridal collection of silk stockings, a black suspender belt, and a lace bra embedded with crystals. To top off her collection, she purchased a $600 silk nightgown trimmed with ostrich feathers. The wedding guests reportedly each received a pair of Chrome Hearts sunglasses from London store Mallon & Taub (that was a $188,000 order for the store).
Apparently there was supposed to be an additional Catholic ceremony, but the Italian priest refused to marry them because Tom is twice divorced. Because Scientology ceremonies are not recognized as legally binding in Italy, (according the head of Scientolgy in Rome), the couple was actually married in Los Angeles in a civil ceremony before they left for Rome. The couple's publicist has confirmed that they are now legally married under U.S. law.
We know how worried you all were about the legal technicalities of the wedding, so we hope your minds are now at ease. Because we're absolutely exhausted. And we haven't even gotten to Victoria Beckham's soup plate hat and fab black cocktail dress or J.Lo's royal enemble (she looked amazing).
