3 Saturdays in June: Celebrity Brides from Hollywood, Sports, and Actual Royalty
This sixth installment in our monthly OBJ Weddings series scopes out celebrity brides saying “I do” in June.
June 1: Grace Kelly’s Granddaughter, Charlotte Casiraghi, Weds in Monaco
When you’re the granddaughter of the Princess of Monaco and international style icon Grace Kelly, the wedding bar is set pretty high.
Charlotte Casiraghi, daughter of Monaco’s reigning Princess Caroline, paid tribute to her legendary grandmother when she married film producer Dimitri Rassam in the same State Apartments where Kelly wed Prince Rainier III in 1956.
According to People, which knows a thing or two about celebrity brides, the private civil ceremony was performed in front of family only.
Afterwards, 300 guests celebrated at nearby Villa La Vigie.
What She Wore
For the ceremony, Charlotte wore a gray brocade mini-dress by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent. Simple white stilettos and minimalist jewelry accessorized her tailored ensemble.
Stepping things up for the reception, the stunning Grace Kelly lookalike changed into a strapless Chanel gown.
Around her neck Charlotte wore the very same Cartier diamond necklace that had been presented to her grandmother by Prince Rainier at their 1956 wedding.
June 8: Katherine Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt Marry in Montecito, CA
After a whirlwind romance that began last summer, actor Chris Pratt presented author and lifestyle blogger Katherine Schwarzenegger with an engagement ring in January. People reported that the romantic oval center stone, said to be about 5 carats, is set on a very thin simple band.
Oval engagement ring styles have been steadily gaining in popularity for several seasons, and with the influence of this celebrity bride and groom you can expect the trend to continue.
What She Wore
For their wedding and reception at Montecito’s San Ysidro Ranch, Katherine and Chris both chose custom Giorgio Armani designs.
Her strapless white lace column gown, which she called a “once in a lifetime dress,” features a bustier-style bodice.
Katherine is the daughter of actor and politician Arnold Schwarzenegger and broadcast journalist Maria Schriver.
June 15: Tennis Star Caroline Wozniacki is Married in Tuscany
Tennis player Caroline Wozniacki and former professional basketball player David Lee were married on June 15 at the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco Hotel, nestled in the hills outside of Florence, Italy.
What She Wore
When David surprised Caroline with a stunning 8-carat diamond ring, last year’s Australian Open winner emailed her friend (and tennis fan) Anna Wintour for wedding gown advice.
The longtime Vogue editor invited “Caro” to meet in her office and connected her with Oscar de la Renta’s team. The bride ultimately chose a strapless gown, embroidered with Lyon lace, with a corset-like top (a big look this wedding season). She topped things off with a classic cathedral-length tulle veil.
Caroline and David exchanged vows before several hundred guests, including tennis great Serena Williams (who served as a bridesmaid) and her husband, Alexis Ohanian.
Look to OBJ next week for a pre-Wimbledon story on Serena’s new jewelry collection…including the return of the diamond tennis bracelet!
