Australian Supermodel Miranda Kerr got married to Snapchat’s billionaire CEO Evan Spiegel during an intimate ceremony in the backyard of their $US12 million Los Angeles home on Saturday. Under high security, about 40 friends and family members, including many who flew in from Australia, were picked up by limousines at various LA locations and were chauffeured to the Brentwood home for Saturday afternoon’s nuptials.
“For a small wedding, it has been a huge production,” people.com quoted a source as saying. “The wedding and reception are intimate, but lavish and classy. Miranda has been very involved. She has great taste and knew exactly what she wanted. She is very sweet. She is ecstatic to marry Evan,” a source added.
The wedding, according to E! News, began with guests served cocktails in an open-air backyard tent and a pianist played When You Wish Upon a Star. A string quartet also played, while the decor at the reception was described as rustic chic with farmhouse tables, white benches, and chairs and light pink garden roses.
” Everything was done elegantly,” a guest said.
Kerr, 34, and Spiegel, 26, the American co-founder of messaging app Snapchat who has a personal worth estimated at $US4 billion, began dating in 2015. The couple announced their engagement on July 20, 2016. The announcement was made on Evan Spiegel’s app. Miranda Kerr showed off her gorgeous diamond ring in a post decorated with Bitmoji caricatures of the couple.
It is Kerr’s second marriage. She wed English Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom in 2010, they had a son Flynn in 2011. The couple divorced in 2013, but have remained close friends and co-parents.
For Spiegel, however, this marks his very first marriage.
In an earlier interview with Elle Canada, Miranda Kerr opened up about depression post her split with Orlando Bloom.
“When Orlando and I separated, I actually went into a really bad depression. I never understood the depth of that feeling or the reality of that because I was naturally a very happy person,” the Australian model told Elle Canada in an interview. Miranda added that she got through the bad phase by realizing that “every thought you have affects your reality and only you have control of your mind.”
So after wedding bells comes…baby news, perhaps? Well, Kerr did admit that she’s open to the idea of expanding her family with her new hubby.
“I am very content with having just one [child], but I am definitely open to the possibility of having more. [Flynn] will often say, ‘My friends have brothers or sisters, will I have a brother or sister one day?’ I say, ‘Maybe, honey.'”
Only time will tell, but until then, we wish Mr. and Mrs. Spiegel all the best on their exciting wedding news.
