What a way to ring in every new year! Maria Menounos reflected back on her televised New Year’s Eve nuptials this week, marveling at the magic of her wedding day.
“#nye will always be a celebration for us! What a magical night,” she captioned a series of photos from the New Year’s Eve celebration in an Instagram post Wednesday. “Thank you to everyone who helped make it possible…to everyone who helped in Big and small ways.”
Menounos, 39, then rattled off a handful of people who helped to make her unique wedding day possible, including her best friend, Alyssa Wallerce, for being “the best maid of honor ever,” and Steve Harvey “for getting ordained & performing our marriage.” The TV host also thanked Pronovias for providing a “gorgeous winter wonderland gown” and “all the people who shared in our moment and loved on us.”
“It was unreal,” Menounos said of the live television broadcast on her SiriusXM show. The personality felt as if they didn’t have enough time to swap outfits between sets, even with what seemed like ample buffer periods. “We were struggling. I was bridezilla for a solid two minutes there…” she said, while mimicking the tense situation (“I’m going to miss the wedding!” she yelled at one point).
“And having to surprise my family,” she reflected on the radio program, “keep it secret, and somehow get them to dress appropriately from 3,000 miles away…”
