As had been speculated earlier this week, [artist id=”2351110″]Kevin Jonas[/artist] of the [artist id=”2088128″]Jonas Brothers[/artist] married his longtime girlfriend, Danielle Deleasa , on Saturday (December 19) at the luxurious Oheka Castle on New York’s Long Island. Kevin’s brothers Joe and Nick both served as his best man. Despite a blizzard that blanketed most of the Northeast, the ceremony went on as planned.
“We’re so happy that we’re finally married and we were able to share the special moment with family, friends and loved ones,” the couple said, according to People. Some 400 guests were in attendance, including [artist id=”3079280″]Demi Lovato[/artist]. Deleasa’s dad, Thomas, walked the bride, who wore a strapless tulle and chantilly lace Vera Wang gown, down the aisle. She also wore a silk-and-crystal flower in her hair — an homage to the flower she wore in her hair the day the pair met in 2007.
“The snow only made it look more like a winter wonderland,” Michael Russo, a celebrity event planner of Roses-n-Lollipops who worked with the couple for Saturday’s event, told People. The event had a fairy-tale-forest theme, including 14-foot trees covered in hydrangeas and crytals designed to look like icicles all under heated white tents. He added, “Danielle looked like a princess. Kevin couldn’t stop smiling.”
The pair exchanged traditional wedding vows as well as bands they designed for one another from Jacob & Co. At the reception, guests dined on Caribbean, Asian and Italian foods. “Kevin has said many times he feels like he met his princess,” Russo said. “To see them together you can feel the warmth and the love all around them. They are just perfect for each other.”
Jonas, 22, and Deleasa, a 23-year-old former hairdresser from New Jersey, got engaged in July . They met in 2007 while their families were vacationing in the Bahamas. At the time the band was still up-and-coming and Deleasa has admitted that she didn’t even know who the Jonas Brothers were. Kevin pursued Deleasa after he spotted her on the beach. “It still feels like a dream,” she told People about the engagement.
