As it has been reported before, the longtime lovers, who have already had three children, tie the knot in an intimate ceremony held at the Good Shephard Catholic Church in Beverly Hills.
Mark Wahlberg wed his longtime lady love Rhea Durham in a ceremony staged at the Good Shephard Catholic Church in Beverly Hills on Saturday, August 1. The pair, who has been together since 2001, exchanged wedding vows in front of around 20 guests that included their family and close friends. Their three children; Ella Rae, Michael, and Brendan Joseph reportedly were also in attendance.
The groom opted to wear a black suit with a silver tie, whereas the bride was seen donning a white, strapless wedding dress designed by Marchesa with silver embroidery around the bust and waist. She finished off her look with a Neil Lane diamond bracelet and earrings. Daughter Ella, meanwhile, was spotted sporting a white dress with embroidered flowers and carrying a flower girl basket. Flowers used for the affair were pink and purple roses.
Mark and Rhea's wedding ceremony was kicked off at 3:30 P.M. and lasted for about 45 minutes. After the service was completed, the newlyweds left the church through its back door. "She looked like a princess and beyond stunning. Mark looked ecstatic," an onlooker said of the couple.
Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham's nuptials wasn't a secret for the press as the actor himself has publicly confirmed in October 2008 that he and Rhea planned to get married in August 2009 in a "Catholic church", adding the wedding would be "small, family only, no media" affair and "there will be no wedding pictures sold to any magazines!"
