As a judge on Objetivo Fama, the Spanish-language equivalent of American Idol, Mexican-born pop star Jimena helps hopeful stars of the future realize their dreams. On a day in June 2008, it was the singer’s turn to make her own dream a reality as she said “I do” to her love, Christian Carlsen. As unique as their love for each other, the couple chose the groom’s Manhattan furniture store, King’s Road Home, for the nuptials.
According to People En Espanol, an intimate band of family and friends (including Alexia Camil, who recently announced to the press the surprise marriage of her brother, actor Jaime Camil), watched the bride walk past in a strapless, layered silk creation by designer Melissa Sweet, the garment’s ethereal beauty accented with the addition of a white fascinator which set at a jaunty angle atop the performer’s blonde locks. Smiling as he stood by a rose-petal sprinkled desk which served as a podium for the officiant, the groom waited to make her his wife.
