Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger walked down the aisle in lavish style at their wedding on Saturday night, June 8. The Guardians of the Galaxy star, 39, and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's daughter, 29, tied the knot after only a six-month engagement. The quick wedding came after a source told RadarOnline.com that theChristian pair had decided to abstain from sex until after marriage.
The couple said “I do” in a romantic ceremony at the San Ysidro Ranch, a high-end 500-acre resort in California. Chris and Katherine began dating in June 2018, a year after his split from first wife Anna Faris, the mother of their son Jack, 6.
Katherine has never been married before. She had a fabulous weddingshower on April 27. Little Jack was at the wedding as well as Katherine's famous parents, her brothers Patrick and Christopher, sister Christina — and Rob Lowe with his sons Johnny and Matthew. Surprisingly, Faris, 42, who had an amicable split from Pratt, was rumored to be on the guest list.
The day after the wedding, Chris and Katherine took to Instagram to post a photo of themselves in their wedding attire.
He wrote as a caption to his June 9 post, "Yesterday was th best day of our lives! We became husband and wife in front of God, our families and those we love.
"It was intimate, moving and emotional. We feel so blessed to begin this new chapter of our lives."
Katherine expressed similar sentiments.
Chris and Katherine wanted to wait to have sex for after they wed, according to a Radar source. “They’re both deeply religious and believe sexshould be saved for marriage,” a friend of the couple told Radar last year.

Here Comes The Bride

Katherine and Chris chose to get married at the famed San Ysidro Ranch, where many other celebrity couples have had weddings.
Terminator star Arnold reportedly gave his daughter away at the wedding. Chris has already become part of the family.
Maria Shriver looked stunning in a purple outfit and she was thrilled to watch her girl Katherine marry the love of her life. Maria and Arnold went through a messy divorce after he cheated on her with the family housekeeper, who had son Joseph by the movie star.
Katherine's bridesmaids wore pale rose-colored dresses for the summer wedding.
Reception food included fresh vegetables and raspberries, blueberries and red currants, reflecting the couple's fit and healthy lifestyle.
According to PEOPLE, Pratt made a speech during the reception and thanked their guests for joining him and his new bride on their special day.

The actor and his beauty got hitched only six months after they announced they were engaged on Instagram in January. Was that because of a no sex before marriage vow?
So In Love
Chris wrote on social media about his proposal, "Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!"
Chris is happy again after his first union ended in divorce. He and Anna announced they were separating in July 2017 after eight years of marriage.
Some reports said that Anna actually attended Chris and Katherine's wedding. Faris had previously joked that she would like to officiate!
No Hard Feelings
Chris has said that he and Anna had tried hard to make their marriage work. Anna said Chris told her when he proposed to Katherine. "I was like, 'Ahh, that’s amazing'. And I texted him back like, 'I just wanted to remind you I’m an ordained minister'... I’m not very good at it."
Anna has previously congratulated her ex Chris and Katherine on their plans to wed. "I love you guys….I'm thrilled," the Scary Movie actress said. "They're both f**king amazing people. I'm so happy."
