Katherine Schwarzenegger did not stray from tradition at her recent wedding to Chris Pratt. The bride took part in the time-honored wedding tradition of having "something borrowed" and "something old," courtesy of important women in her life. Katherine, 29, said "I do" wearing mom Maria Shriver’s veil. Former President John F. Kennedy's niece wore the tulle veil at her own wedding to Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1986. Katherine also accessorized her bridal look with a pair of her grandmother’s earrings, which appear to be the same ones Maria wore for her wedding day as well. The author's tribute to Maria is fitting given that the mother of the bride played cupid for her daughter and Chris.

The Marvel star and Katherine tied the knot on Saturday, June 8, at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. Eunice Kennedy's granddaughter looked stunning on her big day in a custom Giorgio Armani Privé crinoline lace bustier column gown that featured a full skirt, which extended into a lace train. Following the religious ceremony, the bride slipped into a second custom dress by the Italian designer for the reception—an ivory silk satin gown that had delicately draped sleeves and covered-button detailing along the back. Meanwhile, the actor, 39, and his son, six, looked sharp in Giorgio Armani suits.
