Almost four years after destiny paired them together for the movie Step Up, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan waltzed down the aisle on the afternoon of July 11, 2009. Having already welcomed wedding guests for the notable nuptials of both Fergie and Natasha Bedingfield earlier in the year, the Church Estates Vineyards in Malibu once again prepared its grounds for a star-studded ceremony, E! online reports.
A white aisle runner directing their path, five bridesmaids– including former 7th Heaven cast member Haylie Duff and Entourage star Emmanuelle Chriqui, who took on the role of maid of honor– strolled toward the altar in gowns designed in varying halter styles to compliment each woman’s figure, the matching powder puff pink fabric harmonizing with the blush and white roses of their bouquets.
Taking their places, the bridesmaids– who had celebrated their friend’s farewell to the single life in May with bachelorette parties at both the Gansevoort Hotel in Miami and the Bagatelle Beach Club on the Turks and Caicos islands– watched the lady of the hour take her walk down the aisle in a strapless silhouette with an ornate sweetheart bodice which flowed into a feathered skirt that seemed to float with each fluid motion. Peering from behind the blusher of her veil, the bride smiled at the more than 200 friends and family members who rose in her honor before being seated once again in chairs arranged in a semi-circle around the lovebirds, ready to witness the groom presented his love with a band to accompany the engagement ring which has graced her finger since their Maui getaway in September 2008.
