21908: "Diff’rent Strokes" Star Gary Coleman’s Wedding

Towering formations of red sandstone were silent witnesses as former child actor Gary Coleman took Shannon Price to be his lawfully wedded wife on August 28, 2007. Keeping their union a cherished secret for almost six months, the Diff’rent Strokes star revealed to Inside Edition in February 2008 that the couple hopped aboard a helicopter for a ride to the Valley of Fire, Nevada’s oldest state park, to celebrate both the bride’s 22nd birthday and to begin their life together as husband and wife. The bride, who had unconventionally asked for the actor’s hand in marriage, donned a white, strapless gown for the intimate mountaintop ceremony, a look she paired with the addition of a dainty tiara. During her vows, she clutched a bouquet of crimson roses interspersed with baby’s breath, which harmonized with the single red rose boutonniere tucked into the lapel of the groom’s black suit.
