Brady Smith married Tiffani Thiessen on July 9, 2006 at a French-Italian estate in Montecito, California. The Christian wedding, planned by Heidi Asiums of Red 25 Events, took place overlooking a swan-filled lake.
Among the 135 guests there for the ceremony were Tiffani’s “90210” co-stars Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling and Lindsay Price. Tiffani wore a strapless French tulle and lace Vera Wang gown, while Brady opted for a khaki Kenneth Cole suit.
The vows took place in front of an antique gate woven with geraniums, yellow roses and olive branches courtesy of Floral Art.
The nuptials were officiated by Pastor Jon Ireland, who read letters the bride and groom had written in honor of their parents. He also reminded the couple to give each other at least one 30-second hug and one 10-second kiss every day.
Following the ceremony, guests walked through a vine-covered arbor to the reception held in an upper garden. A violinist played Edith Piaf standards as guests toasted with Perrier Jouet champagne. Dinner menus were written on chalkboards at each table. The Gallic feast was prepared by Maili Halme-Brocke and featured arugula salad with white truffle oil, filet mignon with potatoes au gratin, and a separate cheese course.
For dessert, Decadence Wedding Cakes created a New York-style cheesecake decorated with sugared olive branches.
DJ Dave Meek spun classic tunes all night, and as favors, guests took home handmade bottles of olive oil.
The newlyweds spent their wedding night at Hotel Andalucia in Santa Barbara (now known as the Canary Hotel) before heading off on their honeymoon in the Greek Isles.
