Santa Monica, CA
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen were married in a secret wedding ceremony on February 26, 2009.
The 6 p.m. ceremony took place at St. Monica Catholic Church in Santa Monica. Among the handful of guests in attendance were Tom’s parents, and his 18-month-old son, Jack Moynahan.
The bride and groom spent their wedding day at home getting ready together. They left for the church under the dark of night and snuck in through a side entrance.
Gisele wore a Dolce & Gabbana ivory lace strapless wedding dress with a trumpet skirt. She carried a bouquet of ivory roses. Tom wore a gray two-button peak lapel pure wool suit by Ermenegildo Zegna.
The couple entered the church together with their arms linked. A solo guitarist played as they walked from a side door to the altar. Tom’s father, Tom Sr., held his grandson, Jack, and was seated in the front row.
The couple were married by a priest in a 20-minute ceremony. Following the vows, the small group retreated to the rectory for wedding pictures and toasts.
Prior to leaving, Gisele changed out of her wedding dress and into jeans. The newlyweds left the church in a new Rolls-Royce Phantom borrowed for the occasion. They returned to their home in Brentwood where they gathered with family for a small celebration.
