|American Beauty star Mena Sulvari and music producer Simone Sesito finally tied the knot on Saturday in Italy. In a “very romantic and traditional Italian wedding”, the ceremony took place in a private church in Vatican City with a few hundred guests. They chose this location because Simone’s family is from Rome.
Having met at the 2007 Toronto Film Festival, Sesito got down on his knee and proposed about a year later with a sparkling diamond engagement ring. “It was very romantic” said Suvari. “I love him. It’s all about family and culture. I love his family and it just inspires me.” she added.
This is the second marriage for Sulvari, who wed cinematographer Robert Brinkman in 2000 before breaking up in 2005.
