The couple’s intimate wedding ceremony was held at the Harold Pratt House on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. The Emmy Award winner wore an intricate Givenchy Haute Couture gown that was custom-made, just for her, by the brand’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci! She absolutely stunned in the dress, which featured sheer, lace sleeves. She showed a hint of skin through cutout detailing at the shoulders, which only added to the ethereal look of the gorgeous creation.

The gown truly fit her like a glove, thanks to the white silk tulle, Chantilly lace, embroidered pearls, and satin material. A sheer, lace veil also added to the beautiful bridal look while Christina wore her hair pulled back into a side bun, keeping the focus on the gorgeous gown.
