Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump threw a lavish wedding for her daughter Pandora, 24, and groom Jason Sabo on the grounds of their former Beverly Park estate.
Although the actual wedding date was a closely guarded secret, the engagement was not. Jason Sabo’s mother Valeire Sabo shared the good news way back on March 18 via Twitter with the tweet, “Jason Sabo is engaged to Pandora Vanderpump-Todd!”
Pandora wore a classic, white bridal gown, halter, sweetheart, A-line, a little ball gown. The bodice was filled with delicate embroidery and elegant beads. From the waistline, the skirt was multilevel, outside ivory silk covering the fragile chiffon. Her mother, Lisa, wore a little tiara.The famous family dog, Giggy, was also part of the ceremony and walked down the aisle.
The over-the-top made for TV wedding had a hot pink, white and silver color scheme.
Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards, Camille Grammer, LaToya Jackson, Wendy Burch, Jenni Pulos, and Star Jones were among the 275 guest to attend the ceremony.
Photos were made available through the Twitter handle of Lisa’s pomeranian Giggy.
The nuptials come after a hard week for the cast of the Bravo show, who gathered on Wednesday, August 24th for the memorial of Taylor Armstrong‘s estranged husband Russell, who committed suicide a week prior.
The wedding was planned long before Russell‘s tragic death and Vanderpump‘s family decided to go ahead despite the cast being in mourning.
‘The Housewives were caught off guard with Russell‘s suicide and memorial, and although it’s bad timing, the wedding has been planned for quite some time so they couldn’t change it,’ a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.
Taylor did not attend.
Other cast mates, including Kim Richards and newcomer Brandi Glanville, were also absent.
‘Jason proposed to Pandora a while ago, but they’re trying to keep everything secret so Bravo can use the story line to fill in the gaps left by Russell‘s suicide,’ revealed the insider.
The entire affair started with a cocktail reception.
The 275 guests dined on a seven-course dinner which included, salad, risotto, chilean sea bass and filet mignon, and sipped on wine and champagne from the Vanderpump-Todd’s own Villa Blanca. Proud father of the bride, Ken Todd‘s speech brought down the house. “Ken’s speech was sweet and funny…Pandora was crying. It was very emotional.”
After the speech the bride and her dad danced to “The Wind Beneath My Wings.” “It was a lovely evening that everyone will remember,” says the reveler.
Despite Pandora coming from Beverly Hills royalty, the couple had extensive gift registries at Williams-Sonoma, Bloomingdale’s, Crate And Barrel and Z Gallerie, which include martini glasses, waffle-maker, ice-cream maker, and a wine cellar.
Pandora is the only daughter of they British reality star and her husband of 29 years, Ken, and has an adopted brother named Max, 18.
Lisa and Ken own 26 restaurants including celebrity hot spot Villa Blanca and Sur in Beverly Hills, where their future son-in-law Jason has worked as a manager since April 2009.
Lisa Tweeted: “I can’t explain the love and warmth that filled the room and our hearts last night.”
She later updated: “Unequivocally the most wonderful day of my life.”
A picture perfect wedding! Xo @lisavanderpump
