An American Idol wedding! Finalists Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo married Saturday with one very unusual wedding twist.
American Idol finalists Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo married Saturday in a beautiful Los Angeles, California, wedding at the four-star Luxe Sunset Boulevard hotel. Young and DeGarmo said their vows in front of 250 guests, many of them former American Idol contestants.
People magazine nabbed insider details on the Idol wedding and says the the 25-year-old DeGarmo wore a gorgeous Sareh Nouri wedding dress fitted with pearls and rhinestones. The bride opted for minimal jewelry except for a beaded headband.
In a surprising fashion choice, DeGarmo paired her delicate lace wedding dress with bright blue cowboy boots. (Her bridesmaids wore similar cowboy boots in white.)
People spoke with Young and DeGarmo’s celebrity wedding planner, Renée Strauss, who signed off on the unique wedding accessory.
“If you didn’t know better, you’d think the dress and the boots were made for each other,” said Strauss, who is best known for her Beverly Hills luxury bridal boutique. “Believe it or not, the boots totally worked!”
Young chose a modified tuxedo with a custom-sewn crest engraved with the couple’s motto, “Forever Young,” designed with purple and yellow accents (the couple’s wedding colors). Renée Strauss said those intimate details made Ace and Diana’s wedding truly romantic.
“They wanted to put their personal touch on the wedding,” said Renée. “We all worked together to make sure every detail was special.”

After Ace and Diana exchanged their vows, the duo headed to the reception to party the night away with friends like former American Idol contestants Elliot Yamin, Michael Johns and Kevin Covais.
And in true American Idol tradition, the pair made sure to show off their singing talent — the newly married couple wrote and recorded their first dance song, “I Do.”
DeGarmo told People her wedding was the perfect start to a new chapter in her life: “I’m over the moon with joy and happiness about our wonderful wedding. I can’t wait to spend my life with my husband!”
Congratulations to Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo on their beautiful and romantic wedding!
