On Saturday, the actress, 29, married fiancé Austen Rydell in an intimate ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. For her big day, Lourd looked as graceful as ever in a custom Rodarte dress that held significant meaning to the actress. In an exclusive interview with Vogue, Lourd shared that she first was introduced to Rodarte's designers, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, after they interviewed her late mom, Carrie Fisher, in 2014. "I immediately fell in love," Lourd told Vogue. "So when I started thinking about who I wanted to design my wedding dress, they were the first people who came to mind. I have always been a massive fan of their work and thought their elegant, ethereal, unique style was a perfect fit for my — kind of —elegant, ethereal, unique personality. I also felt a strong connection to them because of their connection to my mom and because they are California gals just like me!" Just Married! Billie Lourd Shares First Dreamy Photos from Her Wedding with Austen Rydell Lourd met with the Rodarte design team at the brand's downtown L.A studio where they started to make her dream dress a reality. "We got married on the beach at sunset, so I really wanted something that reflected the vibe of the ocean-y setting," she said. "We decided to make the underlayer of the dress out of sequins. The underlayer of my personality is also made of sequins, so it just felt right. The dress came out even better than I could've ever imagined, and I feel so beyond grateful to Laura and Kate for making it all happen." Billie Lourd and Austen Rydell at their wedding.

In fact, her dad Bryan Lourd picked them out because "they reminded him of the shoes my mom used to wear in the '90s," Lourd told Vogue. And her bridal jewelry packed the same sentiment.

For her "something blue," she wore her mom's favorite ring, a blue fire opal, according to Vogue. Her groom went classic in a Tom Ford tuxedo, and Lourd's closest friends dressed in Halston for the beachy wedding. Billie Lourd and Austen Rydell at their wedding.
