A little over a month ago TV host, comedienne and children’s health advocate Jenny McCarthy wed actor and New Kid on the Block Donnie Wahlberg in one of the most romantic celebrity weddings of 2014. In an era of earthy boho ceremonies and mini-wedding dresses, we loved Jenny’s strapless gown of white silk, Donnie’s traditional black tie and tux, and those fabulous red roses! (We’re guessing at six dozen just on the wedding cake and another 12 dozen decorating the altar, not to mention the thousands of petals strewn on each side of the aisle. Yowza.)
The couple tried to keep paparazzi away by starting a rumor that their nuptials would take place in New York, while they dashed to her hometown in Illinois to tie-the-knot far, far away from Hollywood. We are grateful for the beautiful photos they shared with US magazine – and for not broadcasting the ceremony on cable TV.
Donnie proposed to Jenny just four months prior to their September wedding with a huge yellow sapphire set in a halo of diamonds. The 10 carat yellow sapphire, mounted in a white gold engagement ring, was secretly purchased by Donnie at Newport Jewelers in Newport Beach, California. Jenny’s son was part of the surprise marriage proposal – how sweet!
Coast Diamond has sunny yellow diamond engagement rings for brides-to-be similar to the one Jenny proudly wears on her left hand. Call your local Coast Diamond authorized dealer if you’d like to try on one of the following rings (some rings may need to be special ordered) or other one-of-a-kind engagement rings featuring color gemstones.
Congratulations to Jenny and Donnie!
