Over the course of her acting career Marla Sokoloff, a star on the Emmy-winning ABC series The Practice, has portrayed a bride on five different occasions. No doubt the imaginary I do’s (one of which can be seen in the following photos from the Hallmark Channel original movie Flower Girl) proved to be good experience for her own wedding day, which took place on November 8, 2009.
A profusion of petals from deep red roses and other autumn-hued botanical beauties from Mark’s Garden perfumed the outdoor Chapel Garden area of Il Cielo restaurant in Beverly Hills as five bridesmaids and two matrons of honor strolled down the aisle before the lady of the hour made her grand entrance, WeddingChannel.com reports. One hundred friends and family members rose in honor of the bride, who clutched a bouquet of white blossoms as she walked past, the flicker of candlelight and tiny twinkle lights giving a warm glow to her white, strapless silk Amsale silhouette as she stood beside her fiance since October 2008, musician Alec Puro.
Following the exchange of vows, the newlyweds and their guests sampled slices of a wedding cake from Buttercake Bakery after enjoying a feast of Italian fare.
Fans can see the bride in a small screen ceremony when the Hallmark Channel original movie Flower Girl debuts on November 14, 2009.
