All the details on Britney’s weddingSeptember 19, 2004
Star magazine: Britney Spears and Kevin Federline pulled a sly one on everyone by saying “I Do” at what was supposed to be an engagement party and not even Brit’s own mother, Lynne, was in on the stunning surprise.
Star brings you the details no one else has!
It all happened Saturday night, Sept. 18, at 7:30 p.m., at the relatively modest Studio City, Ca. home owned by the tailor, who had custom-made the tuxedoes for the groom and all the men in the wedding. The tailor happens to be the ex-husband of Britney and Kevin’s wedding planner — it was all very close-knit.
Only 20 immediate family members – including Britney’s shocked mom and sister Jamie Lynn. Britney wore a strapless white dress by designer Monique L’Huillier, with long veil and tiara, and she carried a bouquet of pink and white roses. Kevin suited up in black tux. Five bridesmaids and a maid of honor all wore burgundy and carried red roses.
Guests dined on chicken fingers, crab cakes, ribs, Waldorf salad, and the newlyweds danced to Journey’s City by the Bay. Britney gave Kevin a platinum ring with diamonds, and she got a platinum band.
The actual ceremony lasted but five minutes. “He was crying, she was crying,” a source tells Star. “It was beautiful.”
Wedding invitations had already gone out for the Spears-Federline October 16 wedding near Santa Barbara. That event is now being revamped as a party for all the newlyweds’ friends.
