It’s amazing to hear the stories of how brides fulfill the phrase “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue” at their wedding. While we don’t know what she did for “new” or “blue”, we do know Katherine Schwarzenegger wore Maria Shriver’s veil at her wedding to Chris Pratt. That’s certainly a way to get the “borrowed” and “old” together.
Schwarzenegger and Pratt married on June 7 in an intimate ceremony in Montecito , California. For the occasion, the blushing bride expertly wore the veil her mother wore in 1986 in her opulent wedding to actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The veil was paired with a custom lace embroidered shorter veil, and it all looked incredibly elegant with Katherine’s Armani Prive-designed wedding gown. The whole affair was the culmination of several months of wedding preparations, from the coupl’sred carpet debut, to Schwarzenegger’s bridal shower capped off with a darling toast from Pratt, to the release of all the details on their ceremony.

Yesterday was the best day of our lives! We became husband and wife in front of God, our families and those we love. It was intimate, moving and emotional. We feel so blessed to begin this new chapter of our lives. We are so thankful to our families and our friends who stood with us, and grateful to Mr Giorgio Armani, who created a once in a lifetime dress for me to wear, and for Chris, the perfect suit. This morning we feel nothing but blessed.
The two have certainly had some controversy in their way to the altar. When Pratt posted his wedding portrait with his new bride, many were upset that he deemed it the happiest day in his life, despite having already been married (to actress Anna Faris) and having a son, Jack. Though Faris herself is said not to have taken offense, revealing to a source that she’s happy for her ex-husband.
Regardless of Pratt’s actions, Katherine Schwarzenegger certainly made a lovely bride. The integration of her mother’s veil just made everything that much more special, no doubt.
