Just three months ago, Adrienne Bailon said oui when her sweetheart, Grammy-winning Christian musician Israel Houghton, dropped to one knee and proposed to her in Paris, France. And now, it's official—the pair is married! Bailon and Houghton headed back to the City of Lights to say their "I dos" in an ultra-romantic wedding. Here's everything we know about the très chic nuptials—including a peek at the bride's totally gorgeous wedding dress!
After a Parisian proposal and a Paris-themed wedding shower, it only made sense for Bailon and Houghton to tie the knot back where it all began. So, with their family and friends in tow, the couple flew to France last week for their wedding festivities. First off, Bailon and Houghton celebrated their rehearsal dinner (photos below) at the Parisian restaurant, Ferdi, according to E! News. Fun fact: The couple had previously met in the same spot a decade ago! Très magnifique, non? And then on November 11, the bride and groom finally said "I do."
Bailon and Houghton said their vows at around 7 p.m. local time at Paris' ultra-luxe Hotel Plaza Athénée in front of about 70 wedding guests including Bailon's The Real co-hosts Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Tamera Mowry.
Bailon nearly outdid the Eiffel Tower when it comes to sparkle and shine! Her wedding dress featured tons of glitzy embellishments and a sexy mermaid silhouette that we're predicting is going straight on your wedding inspiration Pinterest board! "Happily Ever... Houghton," the bride captioned probably the most picture-perfect wedding photo ever on her Instagram page. In the sweet snapshot, Bailon and Houghton embrace post-"I dos" with the world's most romantic backdrop glittering in the background. The bride also shared a photo of her venue's ultra-glam chandelier and we also got peek at the couple's itsy bitsy flower girl, looking absolutely adorable in her white tulle and lace dress.
"I genuinely just feel so blessed and grateful. I've honestly never been happier in my entire life," the newly-minted Mrs. shared with People magazine. "I've never felt what I feel right now. I can't even describe what it is, but it's such a peace mixed with total excitement."
"I'm so glad we chose such an intimate group of who have shared in our journey and know our hearts and that I honestly feel comfortable crying in front of," Bailon continued. "I didn't want to invite people I felt I had to put on a performance for. I wanted every moment to be genuine and really special."
And we're positive it was!
