Twilight star Nikki Reed and American Idol alum Paul McDonald tied the knot in Malibu, California. The perpetually edgy Reed—known outside the Twi-verse for gritty turns in indie flicks like Thirteen and Lords of Dogtown—married American Idol alum Paul McDonald in a one-of-a-kind fit-and-flare fantasy gown that was dripping with Tacori diamonds. However, maybe lots of you may hold the view that celeb weddings have been given a bad rap – extravagant and unrealistic budgets and weddings that last no more than 72 hours. But there’s still a little bit of curiosity in side each and every one of us to see exactly what the dress was, what the colours were and what she carried as a bouquet. So, just shift your emphasis, and enjoy this celeb’s amazing wedding shots.
It took more than 100 hours of hand stitching to fit the dress to Nikki’s body. Embedded at the center of the bodice’s blingy band were 30 carats of Tacori diamonds – one five-carat rock surrounded by 12 pear-shaped stones, symbolizing the 12 months of the year and the circle of life. The back of the dress featured 100 diamonds buttons (a total of 105 carats!). The train was six feet long!
It’s so unbelievably refreshing to see a bouquet of sunflowers. It’s quite rare nowadays to see this as the main floral focus.
