AceShowbiz - Shantel VanSanten went all out when it comes to tying the knot with Victor Webster. Months after getting engaged to the "Days of Our Lives" alum, the model/actress revealed that they got married in three separate weddings.
Shantel and Victor first exchanged vows in an intimate civil ceremony outside the Pasadena City Hall in California on August 9. "When my grandfather unexpectedly passed away on Father's Day, the heartbreak was unbearable; I had been planning on him walking me down the aisle in Minnesota," the 36-year-old first told Brides.
"In the midst of my grief, I looked at Victor and said I wanted to do a spontaneous civil ceremony on my grandparents' wedding date, August 9," she added. "In so many ways, I felt their presence with us... Although it was not planned, it ended up being the most beautiful day. We didn't overthink it-just went with our hearts wide open. It was beyond memorable."
The second ceremony took place in Napa in October. The twosome later say "I do" once again in the "Shooter" star's hometown of Luverne, Minnesota. "Through all of this, the biggest lesson Victor and I have learned is the resiliency of the human spirit and our hearts," she explained.
"As I looked at my side, when the world felt like it was falling apart, there stood my rock, my home, my husband. As there are unwritten chapters ahead, we will surely experience more hardships on this grand adventure," Shantel further shared. "I couldn't be more sure we can overcome anything together."
Shantel and Victor first met on the set of "Love Blossoms" in 2017. They then dated for four years before getting engaged in February this year. "It was the most perfect, wonderful day of my entire life," she told PEOPLE of the proposal. "And I can't wait to marry my best friend."
