It’s official — Katie Stevens is a married woman! The Faking It star walked down the aisle with her longtime boyfriend, Paul DiGiovanni, on Saturday, October 12, and their wedding seriously looked like a real-life fairytale.
According to People Magazine, the couple said their “I Dos” in front of 250 loved ones just outside of Nashville. Katie donned a gorgeous, flower embroidered gown designed by Flora Bridal, while her hubby opted for a custom BJ Gray of Grayscale suit.
“Paul’s mom passed away when he was 15, so I just wanted him to feel like she was with us,” Katie told the outlet. “His aunt gave me a piece of his mom’s wedding dress, and I had it sewn into Paul’s jacket on the inside and covered with a patch.”
How sweet is that? The actress also paid tribute to her own family by finishing off her glamorous look with her mother’s veil and great-grandmother’s crown. Some of the celebrity guests at the wedding include Dan Smyers and his wife Abby, Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams, Shay Mooney and his wife Hannah, Olivia Holt, Chloe Bennet and Molly McCook. Paul’s Boys Like Girls bandmates, Martin Johnson and John Keefe, were also there, and they all hit the stage to for a special performance during the magical evening.
“Music is important to both of us. It’s what I do for a living, and Katie does a lot of it too, so that was a big thing for the wedding,” Paul explained. “We took a lot of time picking out all the songs.”
“Our first date was five-and-a-half years ago. After dating for a couple months, I knew [he was going to be] my husband,” Katie told People before the wedding. “From the second that I met him up until now, he’s made me feel special and more than enough every single day.”
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
