They say true love is in the air…and here comes proof. On June 23, 2018, actress and singer Kristen Bell and her fiancé Robert Pattinson got hitched in a gorgeous, private ceremony in Italy surrounded by family and friends. The couple began dating in 2011 and became engaged less than three years later in December 2014. Now, as they settle into their married life, they can’t stop sharing sweet moments on their social media accounts.

The Ceremony

There was no question that the wedding of the year would be an intimate and personal affair. The couple tied the knot at a small ceremony in Venice, Italy, surrounded by friends and family. To celebrate their union, the couple decided to invite only a select group of family and close friends. “We wanted it to be a celebration of becoming husband and wife, a recognition of the bond that we share, and a celebration of love,” the actor explained to E! News shortly after the ceremony.

The intimate affair was a far cry from the elaborate weddings that Bell has graced in the past. Aside from her wedding to Pattinson in 2018, the “Forces of Nature” singer and her ex-husband, Mike Clifton, also held a low-key ceremony in 2015. And let’s not forget about her engagement to David Beckham in 2014. That wedding rocked San Francisco’s Fort Mason Park. In fact, the former Spice Girl has more married than divorced so far, which stands for quite a feat in today’s society. So, as you can see, Bell is definitely a bride-to-be when it comes to celebrating special occasions.

The Bride-To-Be

Even before the wedding day, the speculation was rampant that Bell would walk down the aisle in a beautiful white dress. In fact, the dress was designed by Vera Wang and included a high neckline and long sleeves. For her hair and makeup, Bell wanted to go for a look that was both classic and yet contemporary. She chose to go for a look that was somewhere in-between. To keep things simple yet elegant, she opted for a classic updo with a few pops of color.

Unfortunately, a few days before the wedding, Bell came down with a nasty case of food poisoning. She was forced to cancel the event and postpone the wedding. But the bride-to-be couldn’t keep her big news quiet and announced the wedding date on Instagram. While she was sick, the 29-year-old worked hard to finish her album, due for release in August 2018. And apparently, she did an amazing job as “Black” became her new album’s first single. That’s right, the “Die A Happy Woman” singer has chosen to call her wedding black. Why? Because it’s a happy day and she wants to celebrate her success.

The Dress Is…

While we know that Bell will be wearing a stunning white dress, we don’t know much about the designer’s wedding collection. But what we do know is that the dress is stunning. And it fits the bride perfectly. The dress features a simple yet elegant lace bodice with beading along the collar and a sweetheart neckline. The skirt is made up of five layers of silk organza that create an illusion of volume. The look is truly one-of-a-kind.

In addition to the dress, Bell also chose to wear a Vera Wang diamond ring and a pair of diamond earrings. The wedding party wore black dresses chosen by the bride, and the groom wore a custom-made tuxedo. The dresses were designed by Vera Wang and adorned with beading, lace and embroidery. The couple chose to use only materials from the waist up since the dresses were based on ball gowns. The hairstyle for the wedding day was chosen according to the bride’s taste, featuring elegant twists and curls done by Kelly Karroll of Ombra Hair and Makeup.

The Honeymoon Trip

After the wedding ceremony, the newlyweds took a well-deserved vacation in the French Riviera. And boy, did they take a lot of selfies! The couple were seen wandering the streets of Nice and Cannes wearing sunglasses, having fun and enjoying their privacy. Since their wedding day was such a private affair, the newlyweds decided to keep the details of their honeymoon under wraps. But the 39-year-old actor did tell Engadget that the trip was filled with luxury and excitement.

“We had an amazing time,” he said. “It was a bit of a blur. It was a bit of a honeymoon to remember. It was nice to have some time to ourselves. It was nice not to have so many people around.”

A source told E! News that the newlyweds will be spending a considerable amount of time in Monte Carlo, which is home to many high-profile stars. And let’s face it, even the most extravagant weddings can get a little dull after the excitement of the wedding day subsides. So it’s important to have some fun times with your new partner regardless of the wedding date!

A Lovely Wedding Speech

While the details of their wedding day were kept under wraps, the newlyweds were able to share some sweet moments with family and friends on social media. At the wedding, Robert gave an emotional speech in which he spoke about the “perfect” night and thank-you notes to his guests. He also shared his love for Kristen and thanked his lucky stars for bringing him such a “beautiful woman.”

The speech was filled with tender moments as the groom gave a lot of personal details about the bride, which made the audience melt. “I’ve had an incredible time these last few years with you. It really is a dream come true for me to be marrying such a wonderful woman,” he said. “Every time I look at you I feel the most amazing feeling of happiness.”

The couple have also been busy tweeting from their wedding. On June 25, 2018, they shared a sweet picture from their reception, writing, “Such a happy day. Thank you all for coming to our wedding. It was beautiful.” A few days later on June 28, 2018, they shared a picture of themselves in their wedding finery with the caption, “Such a proud moment. Thank you all for being here today.”

It seems that being a wife-to-be is an exciting and happy profession. And it looks like the couple is well on their way to making it a reality. This wedding season, be sure to celebrate the happy couple’s many accomplishments and continue to cheer them on as they settle into their new life together.
