Someone said,finally got a lesson in anger marriagement after years of public meltdowns, punching shutterbugs and verbally abusing family members.
The 54-year-old “30 Rock” star got hitched Saturday evening with gorgeous yoga teacher Hilaria Thomas, 28, in a traditional Catholic ceremony at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in Nolita. It was reported that Hilaria will be taking her hubby's last name.
Guests were texted the details of the reception just hours before the wedding which includes, , , Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and brothers Billy and Stephen. No paper invitations were sent to the 200 guests to watch Baldwin and his bride walk down the aisle. Father George Deas officiated over the ceremony.
The bride wore a silk magnolia trumpet gown by the designer Amsale, with cap sleeves and a keyhole back neckline with crystal buttons. Also wearing Amsale gowns were Thomas’ mother and Baldwin’s and Kim Bassinger’s daughter, Ireland, 16, was tapped to play flower girl. She was in a slate silk chiffon gown with a strapless neckline and a pleated bodice walking down the aisle ahead of Thomas.designed the tux that Baldwin wore.
Barricades were being posted by cops in front of the church on Friday. It was not clear whether the barriers were intended to keep paparazzi away from Baldwin or keep his fists away from the shutterbugs.
Guests were told not to buy wedding gifts instead they were invited to continue the party on the top of the Kimmel Center at NYU, the newly wedded couple’s alma mater. The center was ornamented with dozens of white-rose arrangements and a dance floor was provided. What was surprising cellphones were banned, and the revelers were expected to munch on an organic wedding cake.
On Friday night, at the Emporio, an Italian restaurant in Nolita, the smiling couple hosted a rehearsal dinner where 85 relatives and close friends enjoyed buffet-style Italian food and popped champagne.
On Thursday night, at a low-key, high-health bachelorette party at Souen, Greenwich Village the former Latin dancer hosted 12 friends. The macrobiotic eatery serves brown rice, green tea and no booze.
The strange couple met last year at the raw-food restaurant Pure Food and Wine off Union Square. It was weird they were dining separately. The actor proposed to the Mallorcan-born yogi in April.
Thomas is the co-owner of the Yoga Vida studio near Union Square.
