The past few weeks have been quite big in terms of weddings. First, it was Harry and Meghan who spammed our Instagram feeds with their gorgeous one of kind royal extraordinaire. Singer Tori Kelly was not far from the tying the knot herself. The 25 year old singer said “I do” to her beau, 28 year old basketball player Andre Murillo on Sunday. Murillo who hails from Germany has been dating the beauty since late 2016 and proposed to her in September 2017.
The couple revealed their impending plans to take the plunge on Instagram with a black and white photo of a rather emotional Kelly showing off her ring with a simple caption that said, “I love you.” Murillo opted for a more direct approach to address the matter by captioning the photograph with the timeless saying, “To have and to hold… to cherish and protect. My best friend said ‘yes’.”
To announce their union, the couple again took to Instagram to break the news to their fans and followers. Kelly posted a photo of the lovable duo kissing with the picture captioned, “To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known & not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known & truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God,” a quote from Pastor Tim Keller.
In the picture, the duo is standing in the middle of a desert with the sun shining down bright on their faces. She later added, “Thank you to everyone who made this the most magical day ever. I’m floating. Brb.” Her husband uploaded the same photograph on his handle and opted for a more traditional title stating, “For better or for worse, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part.”
Kelly’s Wedding Dress
Kelly also made sure to mention all the vendors who made her extravagant affair a success. She donned a stunning lace number, a custom ivory mermaid dress by the amazing Galia Lahav. Her trousseau featured a fitted lace bodice and a stunning flowing train. She paired her ensemble with an oversized bouquet and a half up-do that complimented her look perfectly. To finish the look, she opted for Sam Edelman sandals; straight out of a fairytale.
The Wedding Venue
The notoriously private couple made headlines following their beautiful announcement. The ceremony is said to have taken place in none other than the city of dreams, Los Angeles, against a breathtakingly scenic mountain view on a perfectly bright and sunny day. The couple looked nothing short of royalty and was beaming with joy.
An affair fit for a king, move along Harry and Meghan, you have had your moment. We wish the happy couple the most beautiful of times ahead and hope to see more pictures of this grandeur.
