This time, she didn't wear pink: Beatrice Borromeo married Pierre Casiraghi, the son of Monaco's Princess Caroline and grandson of Grace Kelly, for the second time Saturday — in an ethereal, white dress, custom made from Georgio Armani Privé, during the ceremony, and a second Armani white gown for their reception.
The couple tied the knot seven days ago in a simple civil ceremony at Salon des Glaces in the Pink Palace, where Borromeo donned a custom couture pale pink gown made by Valentino. For Saturday's lavish religious ceremony in northern Italy, according to Forbes, the couple kicked it up a notch. The bride and groom whisked guests to the shores of Lake Maggiore in Stressa, and two small islands that the Borromeo family owns, to continue the celebration.
Borromeo, 29, and Casiraghi, 27 exchanged vows in a family-only lunchtime ceremony on Isolino de San Giovani, Forbes reports, then celebrated with about 600 guests at the Rocca d'Angera island for a lavish reception. The guest list included "Monaco's royal family and the bride's relatives, plus nobles from Europe's various royal houses, artists, models and celebrities," according to Forbes.
Borromeo's gowns certainly stole the show. Her long-sleeved, head-to-toe lace ceremony gown was undeniably classic, while the Grecian-inspired gown she slipped into for the reception had an ample skirt and train that blew beautifully in the island's wind. The bride carried a delicate bouquet of white blooms, while the groom donned a three-piece grey suit for the ceremony and changed into a classic black-and-white tuxedo for the reception.
