The couple of six-and-a-half years reportedly tied the knot in a "secret, quickie" ceremony at City Hall in Manhattan; some details remain a bit murky. Though outlets are reporting that Palermo and Huebl got married on Saturday, City Hall informed us that the office is closed to weddings on weekends. Additionally, Palermo has yet to confirm the stories. However, sources close to the couple are saying that the civil ceremony is a precursor to a larger celebration set to happen later this year.
Palermo's spokeswoman, Barbara Saint-Aime, refuted any reports that their top-secret marriage is related to issues concerning German-born Huebl's visa. "They had always planned to have a small civil wedding in June. The whole visa thing is not relevant," Saint-Aime said. "They have been together for six-and-a-half years, they got engaged this past January. They travel so much during the summer, they really don't have much time to plan things. They are not married yet. They are doing a much smaller civil ceremony in the States this month and they are planning to do something much larger later on."
In fact, many expect that Palermo and Huebl will move forward with the St. Bart's wedding they've been planning. Huebl, a model, proposed to his fiancée on the Caribbean island on New Year's Eve.
Palermo herself has been characteristically discreet about her exact plans. In her Brides cover story, she hinted at a meaningful destination wedding. "Johannes' friends and family are all over Europe and my parents are happy to travel, so it will probably be somewhere in the middle," she told us. "Then you will always have a special place in your heart for the destination where you got married."
We're waiting on pins and needles to hear if the rumors are true! We're sure, after all, that she did her City Hall ceremony the Carrie Bradshaw way — a crisp, timeless, tailored outfit.
