First comes a sweet summer wedding, and then comes a gorgeous photo. The world now has a Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger wedding photo to commemorate their nuptials on Saturday, June 8. Pratt and Schwarzenegger got married in Montecito, California, per People among family and friends. Notable guests included the bride's parents, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as her siblings Patrick, Christopher, and Christina. Pratt's 6-year old son Jack was also in attendance.
Both Pratt and Schwarzenegger shared the same photo from the day on their respective Instagrams. In the picture, the newlyweds gaze at each other and smile lovingly, and both bride and groom dressed in Armani. The couple is holding hands as Schwarzenegger carries a bouquet of white roses in her other. Meanwhile a wedding ring can be spotted on Pratt's left hand. Pratt captioned the photo:
"Yesterday was the best day of our lives! We became husband and wife in front of God, our families and those we love. It was intimate, moving and emotional. We feel so blessed to begin this new chapter of our lives. We are so thankful to our families and our friends who stood with us and grateful to Mr. Giorgio Armani who created a once in a lifetime dress for Katherine to wear and for me, the perfect suit. This morning we feel nothing but blessed."
Schwarzenegger captioned her post of the picture with the same message, switching up her words of thanks for designer Armani by writing she was, "grateful to Mr Giorgio Armani, who created a once in a lifetime dress for me to wear, and for Chris, the perfect suit."
Per a People source at the wedding, guests enjoyed outdoor music and a menu of locally-sourced summer favorites for dinner. The Avengers: Endgame star reportedly gave a moving speech at the reception, which also included dancing to songs such as "Party in the U.S.A" and "Don't Stop Believin'."
