The handsome “30 Rock” actor and the youthful yoga instructor finally tied the knot. Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas are married, but it’s without a doubt a marriage of contrasts.
The 54-year-old groom tied the knot for the second time in his life this past weekend. His first marriage to actress Kim Basinger lasted for a whooping eight years, which in Hollywood time is quite a lot. Following a prolonged meltdown under the media’s spotlight and all sort of brawls with family members and photographers, Alec Baldwin proposed his girlfriend and yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas. Last Saturday evening the two got married in Nolita.
Spokesman Matthew Hiltzik released the following statement: “Hilaria Thomas and Alec Baldwin (shared) the occasion with family and friends inside the Cathedral and Alec warmly receiving congratulations from well-wishing fans on his way into the service”.
New York got to see one of the most debated couples in Hollywood tying the knot. Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas got married at the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in Nolita by Msgr. George T. Deas. 26 years his junior, Hilaria Thomas will take Alec Baldwin’s name and embark quite a journey in the bold and loud Baldwin family.
We all know Alec Baldwin isn’t the kind of man that likes to hide behind the finger. He keeps his private business private and is not shy when it comes to putting photographers in their place. His wedding was along that line, with cops barricading the church since Friday.
The guests on the A-list took part in quite a straightforward ceremony. No paper card wedding invitation, but text messages received just hours before the wedding ceremony. All guests were asked not to buy presents and had to shut down their cellphones. Not to mention they were surprised with an organic wedding cake.
Tina Fey, Lorne Michaels as well as Billy and Stephen Baldwin got to celebrate the day with the newlyweds on Kimmel Center’s top floor which was garnished with hundreds of white roses.
The racy Hilaria Thomas wore a silk magnolia gown with cap sleeves and ca crystal button keyhole back neckline designed by Amsale. The designer was also Baldwin’s mom and his daughter’s choice for wedding gowns, while Alec Baldwin went for a Tom Ford tux.
