Hilary Duff’s weekend wedding to Mike Comrie couldn’t have been more romantic, says her sister Haylie Duff (luck maid of honor too). “What a special weekend filled with love and beautiful memories,” she Twittered. The 22-year-old Hilary (in Vera Wang) and the Canadian hockey player, 29, exchanged vows in front of 100 guests & was walked down the aisle by her mother Susan Saturday August 14th, 2010 in an intimate ceremony in Santa Barbara, Calif. She also sported a 14-carat, $1-million dollar diamond engagement ring.
Says a witness, “It was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever seen. Absolutely stunning. They thought of every last detail and it was an incredible sight. Mike held his arm around Hilary for most of the romantic, candlelit ceremony, and they both looked extremely happy.”
The couple, who began dating in 2007 at a resort in Idaho, got engaged this past February in Hawaii. The couple exchanged vows at the sprawling Villa La Quinta estate just outside of Santa Barbara and then they spent their first night as a married couple at the famed San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito.
Their honeymoon is sure to be memorable at the Kennedy cottage for $4,000 a night. The Kennedy cottage at the San Ysidro Ranch was the spot where Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie retired to on their wedding night. This cottage is quite famous as it is the spot where John and Jackie Kennedy spent their honeymoon during the year 1953. The Kennedy cottage also hosted the wedding night of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. I wonder how many other famous couples will use this cottage for their honeymoon in upcoming years? The cottage must have an eerie sense of history. Would you want to spend a wedding night at the Kennedy Cottage? It seems a bit freaky to me to think that a marriage that ended in an assasination started there. Of course even Jackie didn’t have a diamond engagement ring that expensive on her hand.
