Tom Brady says his intimate church wedding to Gisele Bundchen was exactly the way they wanted it.
“We planned [the wedding] in like 10 days, and it was perfect,” Brady tells GQ’s December issue. “We went back to the house and I barbecued aged New York strips. We had champagne, a cake, some ice cream. It was a great night.”
Brady and Bunchen tied the knot at St. Monica Catholic Church in Santa Monica on February 26, 2009. The only guests in attendance were their parents and his son.
“I think you always have this idea that weddings need to be 200 people and you invite everybody, and I’m all for it if people want to do that, but I think there was really something special about just having our parents there.”
The couple hosted a second wedding reception in Costa Rica two months later where they invited extended family and friends.
