After dating and being engaged for quite a while, Victoria's Secret model Lily Alridge exchanged wedding vows with the King of Leon singer, Caleb Followill. The wedding took place at the San Ysidro Ranch, located in Montecito, California on the 12th of May, 2011. The bride chose a custom-made, wedding gown made by Vera Wang which stood out in its classic, strapless elegance and Chintally layers. The groom put on a Gucci suit. It was a perfect day in every sense of the term and though the party was small, the couple had a most wonderful time, even visiting the poolside for some fun and frolic.
There was a lot of expectation of the wedding being a huge event attended by several models. While only family and close friends were at the wedding, a huge reception was held in Malibu, California at the Church Estate Vineyards. The bride wore a layered party dress as she greeted the hundreds of friends and guests. A lavish dinner was organised via a buffet which included a pot of jambalaya. The lounge area and the dinner tables were set out beautifully alongside a warming fire-pit.
