Last weekend was highlighted by some famous weddings. The American Pie actress Tara Reid, Dancing with the Stars co-host, Brooke Burke and The View co-host Sherri Shepherd tied the knot with their beaus.
First was Burke’s wedding to her fiancé of five years and father of two of her children. She walked down the aisle on Friday, as 39-year-old David Charvet was waiting for her. It happened in St. Barts, as her rep confirmed to People magazine. Next day, Burke confirmed that she has finally got the union she wanted after a hot and steamy relationship. She tweeted: “morning tweeties. Waiting for LA to wake up….big news to share.” So her fans wondered why she made this step after such a long engagement. She gave them the answer: “We started talking about why to do it at this point in our relationship. ‘Do you want forever?’ David asked. ‘Yes, I need forever,’ I said. It was just that simple. I would like to have a husband.”
Burke and her husband are parents to son Shaya, 3, and daughter Rain, 4½, while Burke is also mother to daughters Sierra, 9 and Neriah, 11, from her previous marriage to Garth Fisher.
Then, on Saturday two weddings fought for paparazzi’s attention: Sherri Shepherd’s wedding to fiancé Lamar Sally, at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago, her hometown, and Tara Reid’s wedding to boyfriend Zack Kehayov in Greece.
Shepherd had eight bridesmaids including The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Niecy Nash and Community’s Yvette Nicole Brown. 6-year-old son Jeffrey walked his 44-year-old mother down the aisle. The bride felt all the wedding nerves and shared her pre-wedding thoughts and feeling with her fans on Twitter. “Sitting in the room in my gown waiting for Sal & groomsmen to take their pics… can’t let him see me b4 the wedding… but I’m bored as heck.” And right before the ceremony: “What happens when you are in your wedding dress and you have to tinkle? Uh-oh!”
The 30 Rock actress made it public the fact that she devoted months to trying to get in shape for her big day, even in the day before the wedding, as she did a few last-minute workouts at her hotel gym. Her wedding with the man she calls “Sal” will air as a special on the Style network on September 13 and it will worth watching, as the bride prepared the large ceremony since getting engaged in December.
And Shepherd was the only one who had the wedding of her dreams. Tara Reid said ‘I do’ all dressed in white on a Greek island on Saturday to Zack Kehayov, whom she met after she broke the engagement to Internet entrepreneur Michael Axtmann in 2010. Unfortunately for her fans, Tara didn’t reveal much of her nuptials, all we know is that they both wore white, they stepped on rose petals and got engaged and married in the same day.
