LOOK OF LOVE
Tia Mowry and her groom, actor Cory Hardrict, share a tender moment on their April 20 wedding day in Santa Barbara, Calif. The Game star, 29, and Hardrict, 32, who have been together since 2000, celebrated their nuptials with 170 guests at the Four Seasons Resort the Biltmore.
DRESS TO IMPRESS
Mowry admires her empire-waisted custom Kevan Hall gown as twin sister – and maid of honor – Tamera gives her seal of approval. “I was really going for a very simple, elegant look because I wanted to look back at my pictures years down the road and say, ‘Wow, that still looks good today,’ ” she says.
“He was very, very poised,” says Mowry about proud papa Timothy escorting her down the aisle. “My dad was in the military so he was like, ‘Tia, make sure you start on your left foot. Make sure you walk in sync.’ “
MEET THE NEWLYWEDS
The jubilant couple celebrate their Mrs. and Mr. status, but it was a gush of tears when they hit the dancefloor for their first spin to Beyoncé’s “Dangerously in Love 2” at their Midsummer Night’s Dream-style reception. “I was bawling,” says Mowry. “I just lost it.”
Mowry says that her sister – and former Sister, Sister costar – was the ultimate maid of honor: “She basically was the organizer, just as much as the wedding planner was. She made sure everybody was down at the appropriate times, getting my hair and makeup. We were so on schedule, it was crazy.”
PARTY OF SIX
For her “something new” item, Mowry (surrounded by her bridal party) wrapped a diamond infinity necklace given to her by Tamera around her bouquet.
INTO THE SUNSET
“It was so much fun,” says Mowry of her wedding day. “When it was over I said, ‘Let’s do it again!’ “
