You know her from her roles in Coyote Ugly, Cheaper By the Dozen and Covert Affairs, but now you’re going to know her for her elaborate and exciting choice in wedding dresses. In a month filled with celebrity weddings and surprise wedding ensembles, no one has quite managed to steal the spotlight with her unique choice in wedding day attire quite like Piper Perabo (sorry Olivia Palermo; your shorts and sweater were adorable, though!).
Taking the old wedding saying of wearing something new to heart, Perabo donned a metallic wedding gown on her big day this weekend. The 37-year-old actress wed boyfriend and director-producer Stephen Kay this weekend in the Big Apple. The long-sleeve gown features an almost snake-like texture. It’s fitted throughout the body and certainly stood out with Perabo’s bold yellow veil. She did, however, choose a traditional updo and bridal bouquet.
Not to be outdone by his bride’s unique choice in apparel, Stephen Kay wore a bold blue three piece suit complete with a fedora. The couple became engaged last September, after meeting and falling in love on the set of her show. While Perabo is known for her extreme sense of privacy, she wasn’t shy about parading down the streets of New York City for wedding photos with onlookers in the background. This marriage is a first for both the bride and groom.
Perabo doesn’t talk much about her relationship, though she did recently grant an interview comparing the men she prefers to a nice strong cocktail. “Cocktails like the Manhattan are similar to men that I like: Really strong, sort of tidy, simple, beautiful, and with their hair down,” is what she had to say. While she certainly didn’t specify Kay in the quote, she was engaged and only a few weeks away from her wedding, so it’s safe to say she feels this way about her new husband.
