Chanel Iman Marries Sterling Shepard On March 3
The rumors were right! Chanel Iman exchanged “I Do’s” with New York Giant’s WR Sterling Shepard over the weekend at Beverly Hills hotel. The couple said their vows in front of guests including Chrissy Teigen, Gabrielle Union, Odell Beckham Jr., Shanina Shaik, and Joan Smalls.
Chanel shared some photos on Instagram, but spilled the details on the wedding (which was put together by celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss in just three months!) to Brides, including details on her Zuhair Murad gown, which she paired with a cape and veil.
“I really love simple, elegant silhouettes and I really wanted to find a classic gown for my ceremony,” Chanel Iman shared about the Murad gown she wore for her wedding ceremony. “I feel very lucky to have gotten married in one of his gorgeous creations,” she says.
As for the groom, Shepard wore a Boss tux!
“We leaned towards something more traditional and timeless for the ceremony,” says Chanel. But, of course, the stylish groom had an outfit change later on. Says Chanel, “We threw the rulebook out for the reception and shook things up a little with a fun jacket and shoe change for Sterling before he hit the dance floor!
Chanel’s bridesmaids, including fellow model Jourdan Dunn, wore white gowns by Watters. “I wanted to keep the palette really clean and fresh,” says the bride. “I didn’t want to have the outfits compete with the gorgeous, lush surroundings.” The bride’s mother made beautiful dresses for the flower girls.
Following the ceremony, the bride slipped into a second dress by Zuhair Murad for dinner and dancing. “The pink in the gown and the deep V-neckline really appealed to my more girly side,” she says. “It also brought in the theme of rose gold, which is all I wear and the color of my engagement and wedding ring!”
They both look stunning.
Sterling posted a few photos as well. Keep clicking for more wedding pics!
