Donald Trump Jr. Marries Model Girlfriend
The real-estate scion and Vanessa Haydon tie the knot before 370 guests
Donald Trump Jr. and fashion model Vanessa Haydon, both 27, were married Saturday in the presence of about 370 guests at the groom’s father’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., where the elder Trump and Melania Knauss tied the knot this past January.
Although this weekend’s event wasn’t as star-studded as last winter’s nuptials – the biggest names at Jr.’s gathering belonged to former Dynasty star Joan Collins, model Sophie Dahl and reality TV celebrity Brittny Gastineau – the wedding did bring about a reunion between the Donald and his first wife (and the groom’s mother), Ivana Trump, reports TV’s Extra.
Friday night’s rehearsal dinner reportedly featured a Hawaiian theme, complete with roasted pig.
Saturday’s wedding ceremony, originally to have taken place on the estate’s front lawn, was moved poolside, because of hurricane damage. Haydon s bouquet was white and small, said Extra, and the dress was designed by Haydon and executed by Reem Acra. The bride also told the show that her new husband was not permitted to carry his Blackberry with him.
Officiating was Judge Maryanne Trump Barry of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, who is Donald Trump’s sister and the bridegroom’s aunt, according to The New York Times. The paper also noted that the younger Donald is the vice president for development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization.
The couple will honeymoon in Fiji and Mexico.
