Christina Aguilera and music executive Jordan Bratman got married on Saturday at a posh Northern California resort.
Representatives for Aguilera, 24, confirmed to MTV News that she and Bratman, 28, exchanged vows in the Saturday evening ceremony, which, according to the Us Weekly Web site, took place in front of 130 friends and family at the Staglin Family Vineyard in Napa Valley and featured a gospel choir.
The magazine reported that former Mouseketeer Aguilera’s hair was decorated with jewels and pulled back in a bun that was topped with white flowers, that she wore a dress designed by Christian Lacroix and that she later said the ceremony was “amazing.”
Among the guests who watched the pair exchange vows shortly after 6 p.m. PST were actress Sharon Stone, Aguilera’s longtime manager, Irving Azoff (who introduced the couple three years ago when Bratman worked for his agency) and her dancers. It is the first marriage for both, who got engaged in February after dating for two years (see “Christina Aguilera To Marry Music Executive” ).
The couple, who had a bachelor/bachelorette party in Las Vegas over Halloween, began their wedding weekend on Wednesday, according to Us Weekly, when they arrived at the Napa Airport on a private jet and had a candlelit dinner at the upscale French Laundry restaurant, which stayed open to accommodate their late arrival. They then checked into a private $3,500-a-night cottage at the Auberge du Soleil Inn, where their room boasted a fireplace, steam shower and outdoor sunken hot tub.
When guests began arriving Thursday, they were driven from the airport in Aguilera’s Rolls Royce Phantom, which was shipped up from Los Angeles on a flatbed truck. Friday night’s elaborate rehearsal dinner was Japanese themed, according to the magazine, with lanterns, pink roses and fresh bamboo stems in wooden planters with pink cherry blossoms in the center. The dinner was catered by L.A.’s Hamasaku restaurant and featured a “Christina Aguilera Roll,” a cut roll wrapped in soy paper with spicy tuna, rice, avocado and topped with sweet eel sauce.
The couple was scheduled to leave for a long honeymoon at an undisclosed location on Sunday.
