As the world’s top supermodel, Gisele Bündchen has walked on runways in an array of couture creations, but no doubt the Brazilian beauty never felt as lovely as on the day she donned a Dolce & Gabbana gown for her walk down the aisle. Rumors of an impending “I do” became reality on February 26, 2009 as the former Victoria’s Secret model and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady exchanged vows at a house of worship.
At 6 p.m., the sun’s slow descent over the city of Santa Monica marked the dawn of a new life together for the couple as the bride entered St. Monica Catholic Church, the long train and scalloped hem of her strapless, ivory lace wedding dress gently brushing the path which led to the groom as she strolled past the few family members on hand to share the happy occasion. Adding an extra element of elegance, the model wore a diaphanous veil embellished with satin roses, according to US magazine.
Once pronounced husband and wife, the football star’s favorite fan– his young son John Edward Thomas– along with the groom’s parents and the bride’s three canine companions (who looked fetching in lace collars designed by Dolce & Gabbana) exited the church and headed for the newlyweds’ Brentwood home to celebrate the couple’s union.
