Skywriting which spelled out the words “Spencer loves Heidi” floated momentarily among the clouds over Westminster Presbyterian Church in Pasadena, California on April 25, 2009 before the start of a wedding ceremony which finally united a couple whose romance was made in reality TV heaven–The Hills‘ Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt.
Rising from the pews in her honor, 200 family members and friends– among them Kristin Cavallari, Audrina Patridge, Frankie Delgado and Brody Jenner– watched the bride walk down the aisle in a Monique Lhuillier creation. Looking dazzling for her “I do” in $1 million in jewelry from Neil Lane, the house of worship’s lights danced on the facets of her diamond bracelets, pear-shaped earrings and hair pins as she took her place at the altar by her groom, whose Ermenegildo Zegna suit was accented with diamond cufflinks.
The ceremony was a family affair, with the groom’s niece acting as flower girl and Pratt’s sister and the bride’s sister, dressed in sunshine yellow silk chiffon, stepping into the roles of bridesmaid and maid of honor.
Officially pronounced husband and wife (unlike the pair’s previous Cabo San Lucas ceremony) a shower of rose petals rained down upon the newlyweds as they exited the church, with the bride tossing her bouquet (caught by Kristin Cavallari) before a black Rolls Royce Phantom whisked the couple to Social Hollywood for a reception, where the guests– who dined on chicken salad, salmon pancakes, tuna tartare and slices of a five-tire wedding cake– wished the bride and groom happiness, E! online reports. A separate reception was also held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
