It’s official—they’re married!
Empire star Kaitlin Doubleday and longtime love DJ Devin Lucien tied the knot today during an intimate ceremony at the Ventana Inn & Spa in Big Sur, Calif., E! News confirms. The newlyweds swapped vows and rings from Mars Fine Jewelry outdoors in front of 140 of their closest friends and family members including Lee Daniels and Gabourey Sidibe, with a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean as their backdrop and gorgeous white flowers lining the aisle.
Guests had to reach for their umbrellas due to the weather, but that didn’t seem to put a damper on the happy wedding planned by Samantha Hall Events. Doubleday stunned in two beautiful Mark Zunino gowns as guests celebrated from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.
“Her theme was a mixture of rustic vs elegance and romance. It was really about the ambience with almost 1,000 candles,” a source shared with E! News. “It was really important for her to have the space feel like a wedding but also to make it feel intimate and beautiful.”
The bride and groom were also treated to about 45 minutes of speeches including a heartfelt message from Kaitlin’s dad.
“It was really heartfelt and special because he played such a significant part in her life,” our source added. “It was an emotional experience. It was a blessing to have all the people she loves under one roof.”
Guests and the newlyweds were also able to toast to the celebration with a variety of Winc wines, including NX Declasse Red Wine, 2014 Sapore Locale Falanghina, NV Paper Crane Blanc de Noirs, 2015 Porter & Plot Grenache Blanc, 2015 Forma de Vida Verdelho, 2015 Blind Spot Malbec, and the 2013 Dime Red Blend.
The actress, who plays Rhonda Lyon on this hit Fox series, got engaged to Lucien last May in Paris. “I’m feeling incredibly excited about the weekend!” Kaitlin shared with E! News exclusively when describing her upcoming nuptials recently. “I can’t believe that everyone I love is gonna be in the same room at the same time and I can’t wait to celebrate and dance all night long!”
“I love that Devin will always have my back, that he’s an incredible partner who’s supportive and loving,” she explained to E! News. “And that he loves watching Vanderpump Rules as much as I do.”
“I’m sorry for all my new moms who are going to be at my wedding instead of celebrating,” she joked to E! News. “When you’re shooting eight months out of the year and you have four months to make it happen. We don’t actually have much of a choice on when it’s going to be.”
Doubleday previously told E! News that she was thinking about having the ceremony in Connecticut. “We were going to get married at one of my best friend’s homes in Connecticut, but because my dad is sick I don’t want to take the chance he might not be doing well at that time,” Kaitlin explained, adding that she has instead found a closer venue in California.
“I decided on Big Sur because it’s all the beautiful things I get from the East Coast and also far enough away we could make the weekend out of it.”
Let the party begin! Congratulations to the newlyweds!
