The 54-year-old actor married his fiancee of three months, 28-year-old yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas, on Saturday in New York City. According to the Huffington Post, the afternoon ceremony took place in the hot heat of midtown at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral. Baldwin arrived at the church wearing a Tom Ford tuxedo and was greeted with warm wishes by fans.
His bride wore a "silk magnolia trumpet Amsale gown with cap sleeves and a keyhole back neckline accented with crystal buttons," according to People. During the ceremony officiated by Rev. George Deas, some readings were conducted in Spanish as Thomas grew up in Spain. In the end, Baldwin kissed his new bride, who will now be known as Hilaria Baldwin. 30 Rockin' The Cradle: Alec Baldwin Engaged To His Girlfriend!
On hand to witness the happy occasion were Tina Fey, Woody Allen, Stephen and Billy Baldwin, Lourne Michaels, Mariska Hargitay, Robert Kennedy Jr. and Alec's daughter Ireland. These famous guests as well as the bride and groom's friends and family partied at NYU's Kimmel Center following the ceremony.
On Sunday, an announcement of their marriage ran in The New York Times, where the newlyweds happily described the moment they met last year. Baldwin's wife recalls of the day in February 2011: "I was standing near the door (of Pure Food and Wine restaurant in NYC) with my friends when he walked up and took my hand and said, 'I must know you'... And then he gave me his card."
Baldwin added: "I've dated a lot of people since my divorce (from first wife Kim Basinger) and have thought a lot about what I wanted and what I wanted to do. I thought about it too much, I suppose. I wasn't really ready to take that chance and to act until I met Hilaria... I was ready. While she was in no hurry, she was very mature and clear about what she wanted - to be married someday."
Over the weekend, both Alec and Hilaria shared their happy wedding news with their fans by Tweeting photos of their wedding bands. Hilaria also changed her username to @HilariaBaldwin, and hinted at a honeymoon in "Espana!"
Congrats to the happy couple!
