The first thing we thought when we heard Christina Ricci married James Heerdegen: We can’t wait to see her dress. And the wait was worth it. The actress shared an exclusive intimate photo with PEOPLE of her Givenchy haute couture gown.
Ricci, 33, did not go the traditional princess route (we knew she wouldn’t), selecting a white silk tulle design with Chantilly lace and satin piping. The dress is also covered in micro pearl embroidery and features a very unique detail: short lace sleeves with cutouts at the shoulders. Not pictured: her white tulle veil, which had a matching Chantilly lace appliqué. (You can see a view of that — and the gown’s beautiful train — in another photo she Tweeted, below!)
The star and longtime boyfriend Heerdegen said “I do” in an intimate New York ceremony Saturday night before their family and friends. The nuptials took place at Manhattan’s Harold Pratt House & Peterson Hall.
“Getting to say ‘fiancé’ instead of ‘boyfriend’ is my favorite thing,” about being engaged, the actress told PEOPLE in July. “I can’t wait for ‘husband.'”
