According to E! News, the two got married in a romantic ceremony at the Hotel Plaza Athénéel in Paris.
“I genuinely just feel so blessed and grateful. I’ve honestly never been happier in my entire life,” Bailon later told People. “I’ve never felt what I feel right now. I can’t even describe what it is, but it’s such a peace mixed with total excitement.”
The couple exchanged their vows around 7 p.m. local time at the lavish hotel one day after celebrating with a rehearsal dinner at hot spot Ferdi, where the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. Houghton first met approximately a decade ago. C’est romantique!
The Real’s Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley were among the 70 guests in attendance. “I’m so glad we chose such an intimate group of who have shared in our journey and know our hearts and that I honestly feel comfortable crying in front of,” Bailon told People. “I didn’t want to invite people I felt I had to put on a performance for. I wanted every moment to be genuine and really special and that’s what it is going to be.”
In early September, the blushing bride gushed to E! News exclusively about her wedding planning and finishing up the last-minute touches on her very special day.
“I got engaged in Paris and I had a flight home back to L.A.—it’s a very long flight—I pretty much planned the whole wedding on the plane ride home, so I’m good!”
The 33-year-old star had also been prepared for her new moniker well in advance, as she recently showed off stationary with the “Future Mrs. Houghton” printed on it.
Bailon, ahem, Mrs. Houghton, also told us that she and her hubby were planning on an “elegant and intimate” setting for the dream day.
“We agree on everything. That’s weird,” she joked of making their wedding day decisions.
“He actually has better taste than me, so if I picked something else, I always go with him because he always has better taste.”
Congratulations to the happy couple on their marriage!
