It was one of the most beautiful and perfect weddings I have ever seen in my life. On Friday (April 29) Prince William wed his soul mate Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey in London, England in front of billions of viewers and thousands that gathered outside of the church.
From the first time Kate stepped out of the car in her gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown, to the exchanging of their vows, the carriage ride to Buckingham Palace and their anticipated kiss, it was a royal wedding that no one will ever forget.
My three favorite moments from today were Kate Middleton arriving at Westminster Abbey and stepping out in her gown and two special moments in the church, one when Kate walks down the isle, Prince Harry looks back to look at her and turns back to his brother and tells him “Wait ’til you see her,” and lastly when Kate arrives at the altar William tells her that she looks beautiful.
After the royal couple were pronounced husband and wife they took the carriage back to the Buckingham Palace for the traditional kiss on the balcony (which they did twice). The couple literally looked like out of a fairytale as they sat in the carriage and waved to the thousands of people that came to catch a glimpse of the duo.
The royal couple are now known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

As guests arrived to the Royal Wedding all everyone kept talking about was when the bride to be would arrive and who is she wearing. As Kate Middletonstepped out of the 1977 Rolls-Royce on Friday morning (April 29) billions of viewers tuned in to see the most anticipated wedding dress.
Wearing an absolutely gorgeous and elegant Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burtondress the princess-to-be didn’t disappoint with her choice. Middleton’s exquisite wedding gown had gorgeous long lace sleeves with a sweetheart-neckline and a 9-foot train. She wore a 1936 Cartier “halo” tiara loaned to her by the Queen with an ivory silk tulle veil.
Middleton’s precious earrings were created by Robinson Pelham which were a gift from her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton.
I absolutely loved the wedding dress and if you look closely you can see the delicate embroidery and detail of it. It will definitely be a career defining moment for designer Sarah Burton.
Other than the bride all eyes were on Victoria Beckham and what the mother-to-be would wear. As soon as she stepped out of the car the crowd went crazy, wearing a navy blue tunic dress from her own Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, customized Christian Louboutin heels and a Philip Treacy hat, she looked absolutely flawless.
David Beckham wore a grey Ralph Lauren suit with black crocodile accented braces, DB customized cufflinks and even opted to wear his CBE on his right lapel.
