Over the weekend we learned the happy news that former reality TV star Kristin Cavallari and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler got themselves married in a small, private ceremony in Nashville, TN. Today, courtesy of Kristin herself, we get our first official look at the happily married in their beautiful wedding portrait. Kristin shared the photo on her official Instagram profile, which you can see in full below. Read on to learn all the deets of her “absolutely perfect” wedding day with Jay.
Planning the perfect wedding day was a lesson in simplicity for Kristin Cavallari. “The flowers and everything were very simple but it was very warm and cozy,” says the former star of MTV’s hit shows Laguna Beach and The Hills, who married Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler on Saturday. “It was all about the lighting and the candles and the atmosphere was just so warm. It was absolutely perfect.” Opting not to see her groom before the wedding, Cavallari was nervous to walk down the aisle at Woodmont Christian Church in Nashville on Saturday, but the couple’s 10-month-old son, Camden Jack, paved the way for a smooth ceremony. “We had two flower girls so one of them pulled him and our nephew in a wagon, and the other flower girl was throwing rose petals behind,” Cavallari tells PEOPLE. “I obviously didn’t get to see it, but everyone thought it was just the cutest thing. I can’t wait to see pictures!” After the couple’s reception at a nearby historic warehouse – where guests dined on Southern comfort food and danced to a Motown band – the couple retreated to their honeymoon suite and gazed at the new rings on their fingers. “We were both just like, ‘I can’t believe we did it!’ ” says Cavallari. “Especially Jay, because he’s never worn a ring before. It’s going to take some getting used to.”
Aww, the ceremony sounds so nice. And how cute is this portrait? I’m really happy for Kristin and Jay. They’ve been thru a lot together so it’s really heartening to see that they finally made it down the aisle. There is a lot more to read from Kristin‘s exclusive interview with People magazine in this week’s new issue (which will also feature lots of photos from the wedding ceremony itself). Here’s to a long and very happy life together for these two.
