Dirty Genie gets her wish...weds Bratman
LOS ANGELES: Pop diva Christina Aguilera tied the knot late on November 19 with music executive Jordan Bratman, in a pull-out-the-stops extravaganza ceremony in northern California’s romantic wine country, according to news reports. US media reported on November 20 that Aguilera and Bratman’s Napa Valley nuptials were held at a sunset gathering at an exclusive mountainside resort late on Saturday. Pre-wedding festivities reportedly began on Thursday and included a lavish Friday-night rehearsal dinner. Aguilera, 24, and Bratman, 28, reportedly asked their roughly 130 guests to make donations to Hurricane Katrina and Rita relief efforts. Attendees also were made to sign a three-page confidentiality agreement promising not to disclose any details about the festivities to the media.
The wedding featured a gospel choir and a star-studded guestlist that included Hollywood actresses Sharon Stone, Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore, according to news reports.
People magazine reported that Aguilera wore an ornate silk Christian Lacroix gown while her bridesmaids wore dresses designed by Kai Milla, who is married to R-and-B legend Stevie Wonder. The much-tattooed, multi-pierced star recently told US media her taste tended toward the conservative when it came to choosing her wedding attire. “The dress will be conservative. Don’t expect the sort of stuff that hangs off me when I’m on stage. I want white and kind of traditional,” she said. A close friend told Us magazine that the fantasy event had Aguilera’s personal stamp. “Christina wanted this to be a dream wedding,” the friend was quoted as saying. “Every detail was personally approved by her.”
