Celebrating a love which began in 2004, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and actress Portia de Rossi were joined together in matrimony on August 16, 2008. As home is where the heart is, the couple chose to begin their life together as loving wives surrounded by an intimate gathering of family and friends at their Los Angeles estate.
According to People magazine online, the former host of the Academy Awards slipped a Neil Lane wedding band on the finger of the former Arrested Development star to accompany the Neil Lane engagement ring which has graced her hand since shortly after the announcement of their upcoming nuptials in May 2008. Crowned with a 3-carat marquise-cut diamond, the pink pave diamonds that decorated the engagement ring’s band mirrored the blush hue of de Rossi’s Zac Posen wedding dress– itself a harmonious marriage between the modern back-baring halter top and a traditional ballgown shirt. Refining Ellen’s signature style, the same designer created white pants, vest and a long sleeve chiffon shirt for the comedienne, who pledged her devotion to her bride with personal vows, just as de Rossi did as she presented DeGeneres with her Neil Lane wedding band.
