Married on this day… in 2002: Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.

In ‘Married On This Day’ We take Inspiration From Iconic Weddings Throughout History

Happy anniversary, Sarah and Freddie! It’s 13 years to the day since Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr tied the knot in a sweet, candlelit ceremony in Mexico. Sarah wore a strapless Vera Wang gown and low Italian style veil with a simple updo. For the latter half of the wedding day, Sarah dressed down into a lighter, floaty beach dress, while Freddie relaxed with his shirt untucked from his white, linen suit trousers.

These days, still going strong after 15 years – the couple met on the set of teen horror flick I Know What You Did Last Summer in 1997 but began dating in 2000 – the Gellar-Prinze family has doubled in size. Daughter Charlotte came along in 2009, followed by a baby brother, Rocky, in 2012. Both actors have continued in their field, but pursued other endeavours; Sarah is extremely active in charities such as No Kid Hungry, while Freddie has recently announced he is to release a cook book in the autumn of this year, inspired by his love of whipping up slap up meals for the family (lucky Sarah!) In honour of this sweet couple, we’ve sourced a few 2015 design pieces, inspired by Sarah and Freddie’s beach side nuptials in 2002:

For dress inspiration, we headed back to the source and found this gorgeous Vera Wang creation from the Fall 2015 collection; The Piper dress is strapless like Sarah’s, with a low back and detailed lace skirt. Or, if you like Sarah’s lighter, floaty beach dress, you’ll love this light, low backed Odile gown from Vera Wang, Spring 2015. If you prefer an edgier look, channel Sarah’s lattice pattern gown with this modern and sleek dress from Mira Zwillinger’s 2016 Stardust collection… For the finishing touches, this simple, low veil like Sarah’s is handmade by The Rainbow Club and is available at Liberty in Love. Lastly, let your groom be Freddie to your Sarah with this neutral, light cotton suit by Burberry at Harrods.
