Chris Pratt married Katherine Schwarzenegger in a romantic ceremony in Montecito, California, on Saturday, June 8, Us Weekly can confirm.
The couple tied the knot at San Ysidro Ranch, a luxury 500-acre resort in front of friends and family.
TMZ reports that the Guardians of the Galaxy star, 39, and the eldest child of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, 29, held a lavish rehearsal celebration the night before their nuptials at Rob Lowe‘s estate in Montecito. (The actor is a longtime friend of Shriver and has often vacationed with the family.)
Pratt, who was previously married to Anna Faris, proposed to the Rock What You’ve Got author in January, sharing the news in an Instagram post that showed off his bride-to-be’s new diamond ring.
“Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!” he captioned the sweet snap that showed Katherine with her arms wrapped around the Avengers star. The proposal came just days after Pratt shared a video showing him moving her belongings out of her Santa Monica home.
The couple were first linked in June 2018 after being introduced to each other by Shriver.
Photos from the pair’s romantic celebration began to surface on Sunday, June 9, with the Guardians of the Galaxy actor, 39, proudly sporting his wedding band in one pic. Pratt looked dapper in a classic black tux, while his bride, 29, beamed in a breathtaking white gown.
“Everything about the wedding was gorgeous,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “They had beautiful weather and the perfect set up at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito. Everyone seemed so happy and honored to be a part of the wedding and Chris and Katherine’s love story.”
As for keeping things to a minimum, the source added: “They chose to have an intimate wedding with only around 60 guests in attendance. The shower that was held at Maria’s home in April was a bigger event. They felt the wedding should be their closest family and friends.”
In one photo, the Rock What You’ve Got author could be seen getting assistance with her dress’ long train and veil while Pratt kept close to her as they left the ceremony. Schwarzenegger’s dad, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was also on hand with her brothers, Patrick and Christopher, who were all dressed to the nines for the occasion.
When it came to the mother of the bride’s dress, Maria Shriver wowed in a purple dress with a plunging neckline, which was complemented by the fresh flowers and sunlight on the beautiful California day. Katherine’s bridesmaids all looked beautiful in blush pink, floor-length gowns.
Us confirmed on Saturday evening that the twosome wed at the 500-acre resort in front of friends and family after spending a few days in Montecito leading up to the big day. Pratt — who shares 6-year-old son Jack with ex-wife Anna Faris — announced his engagement to Katherine in January.
“Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you,” the Parks and Recreations alum captioned an Instagram post at the time, which showed Katherine with her arms draped around his neck, showing off her large engagement ring. “Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!”
It was a case of mother knows best: Katherine admitted in a 2017 interview with Access Hollywood that she had a bit of a crush on Pratt. When asked to pick her favorite Marvel Chris: Pratt, Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans, she initially said the Captain America actor before switching to her future husband. “Actually, Chris Pratt,” she said. “Chris Pratt has been looking good lately, so you never know.”
The Jurassic World star paid tribute to his then-girlfriend in December when she celebrated her birthday. “Your smile lights up the room,” Pratt captioned a collage of photos on Instagram. “I’ve cherished out time together. Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love and care.”
The Parks and Recreation alum and Faris split in August 2017 after eight years of marriage. They share a son, Jack, 6.
