An Intimate Affair In Brooklyn Paradise
The beautiful and funny Katrina Bowden married musician Ben Jorgensen on Sunday and despite the stress of wedding planning, Bowden now has her heart set on a luxurious Hawaiian honeymoon.
Katrina Bowden is now married. Bowden — the 24-year-old breakout star of NBC's hit 30 Rock — tied the knot to musician Ben Jorgensen in Brooklyn, New York, yesterday at the city's beautiful botanical gardens. Bowden and Jorgensen became engaged in January 2012.
Bowden spoke to People magazine shortly after her engagement and explained she was totally shocked by the intensity of wedding planning. "It's just crazy," said Katrina "I didn't know anything about weddings, and now I'm just starting to learn everything and it's just kind of nuts. There's a lot that goes into it. I don't have a planner, so I'm doing it myself."
Bowden said that while she struggled to find the right date for the ceremony, fate stepped in and helped with one of the most challenging aspects of the wedding: the dress.
"[The dress] was very easy to find. It was one of the first dressed I tried on." She continued, "I had seen it and I thought, 'I love that dress.' I tried on a few others, just to try some on. But once I tried on the dress that I got, it was a no-brainer."
Katrina Bowden was featured as Esquire magazine's "Sexiest Woman Alive" in 2011 and is set to co-star in the upcoming horror film Nurse 3D, which tells the story of a highly sexualized nurse who lures men to brutal deaths despite her career as a caregiver.
While details on the guest list remain sparse, Bowden did hint that 30 Rock creator and star Tina Fey might give a toast. "That would be amazing!" said Katrina. "If she offered, I would totally take her up on it."
Katrina and Ben are now in the process of planning their honeymoon to Hawaii. The happy couple set up a website for friends and family to donate money to portions of their itinerary. Bowden and Jorgensen hope to spend four nights at The Four Seasons Hualalai and five nights at the St. Regis in Princeville. (Oddly, the couple's honeymoon page is no longer available).
Congratulations to Katrina and Ben!
