Chanel Iman and New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shephard get married
The Victoria's Secret Angel married Sterling Shephard just a few months after getting engaged.
The 27-year-old stunning model, Chanel Iman, married her boyfriend and New York Giants receiver Sterling Shephard at the Beverly Hills hotel in Los Angeles. Their wedding took place literally four months after the couple decided to get engaged, Iman's rep confirmed to People.
As reported by Brides.com, the wedding was a star-studded affair and the guest list included the likes of Chrissy Teigen, Gabrielle Union, Odell Beckham Jr., Shanina Shaik, and Joan Smalls. Colleague and model, Jourdan Dunn, was the bridesmaid of the gorgeous bride, Iman.
The Victoria's Secret Angel wanted to get the best of the best for her styling and went on to hire celebrity stylist, Anita Patrickson, to help select the wedding dress on very short notice as reported by Brides.com. Eventually, she ended up choosing a wedding gown with a cape designed by Zuhair Murad.
According to Brides, Iman said, "I never really envisioned wearing something like that for my wedding. But the moment we put it on, we all loved it! It was so chic and unusual but also felt a little vintage." Iman went on to say that the dress went perfectly with the ceremony and decor of white and pink flowers.
"The fact that it was gorgeous and interesting from the back was something that I really loved as guests tend to have that view for a portion of the service, something I think often gets overlooked," she said. For the reception, Iman had a quick outfit change and she emerged in another gorgeous Zuhair Murad dress.
"The pink in the gown and the deep V-neckline really appealed to my more girly side," she said. "It also brought in the theme of rose gold, which is all I wear and the color of my engagement and wedding ring! I wanted to keep it as classic as possible. I wanted a design that I can look back on in 20 years and not be wondering what I was thinking!"
The rose and gold theme carried onto the decor which included the chairs and menus in the same shades and tones of color. The centerpieces on the tables were made of white roses with tones of red and pink. The ambiance was warm and romantic with plenty of candles lit up.
Literally one day after Iman's birthday in December, Shephard decided to take the plunge and popped the question. He chose a beautiful waterfront setting which was full of candles. The couple posted the photograph along with the caption, "A night full of tears of happiness. I’m beyond excited to spend the rest of my life with you @sterl_shep3 you are my soulmate, my best friend, my everything! Can’t wait to be your Mrs. 💎💍."
