Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis aren't the only celebrities to throw a Fourth of July wedding: Vanessa Williams married fiancĂ©é Jim Skrip this past weekend in a lavish celebration in Buffalo, New York.

With "Third Time's the Charm" as her theme (this is, after all, her third marriage), Williams made sure to wed her love in style. According to Entertainment Tonight, Williams and her family rolled into the ceremony in Rolls Royce's. The ceremony was held at the opulent St Stanislaus Roman Catholic church in Skrip's hometown.

As for the bride's dress, the former Desperate Housewives star wore what looks like a high-necked, simple white sheath with a wide gold belt at the waist. Her hair was left extra straight, with a smoky eye and simple veil to complete the modern look.

Family was a big part of the celebration, with William's three daughters, Melanie, Jillian, and Sasha, serving as her bridesmaids in mismatched ivory gowns. Some of William's former Ugly Betty family, Mark Indelicato and Ana Ortiz, showed up for the occasion as well.

To punch up the all-white wedding party, Williams and her daughters carried bouquet with bright summer blooms like hot pink peonies garnished with a ton of greenery.

It wouldn't have been a Fourth of July wedding without some sparklers, either! The newlyweds were sent off to the sunset with their guests waving the mini fireworks. No details have been released yet about where they will be honeymooning, but considering they met while on vacation in Egypt, we're sure the location they choose will be nothing short of extravagant.
