Kat Von D and Rafael Reyes: MARRIED!!!
Congratulations are in order for Kat Von D!
And her HUSBAND, Rafael Reyes!
That’s right, yesterday Kat married Rafael, also known as Leafar Seyer, his stage name with his band, Prayers.
Or, well they were technically already married — they tied the knot back in February in a quickie ceremony.
Back then, she took to Instagram to call Rafael “my soul’s mate, my mind’s twin, my best friend,” and he was pretty gushy about her too, calling her “the girl of my dreams.”
And even though it’s only been a few months since then, it looks like they’re more in love than ever, since they had their big wedding this weekend!
The whole thing really is just so sweet, and also so stylish — wait till you see Kat’s dress!
But before the actual wedding — on Friday after the rehearsal dinner — Kat took to social media once again to express her absolute happiness, along with a picture of some flowers.
“Such a beautifully emotional day today,” she wrote, explaining that the next day she and Rafael “will have our wedding ceremony for our close friends + family.”
“This has been the sweetest, most stress-free experience where we continuously fell in love with each other all over again with each day counting down.”
As for the flowers, she said that they are three carnations that a friend brought them, and that they “represent him, me, and our sweet baby boy we are adding to our family.”
Because in case you missed it, she’s pregnant, too!
“All I can say right now,” Kat continued, “is that I am so grateful fo my dear friends, and for my sweet husband.”
“Lastly, thank you all for the love and for understanding that starting tomorrow we will most likely be stepping away from our phones for a while to be as present as possibly on such a beautiful day.”
But thankfully, Rafael did grab his phone to give us a quick little peak at the beautiful bride!
Can you even handle this beautiful Beetlejuice realness?!
In the caption of the photo, Rafael told us that “In a couple hours I’ll be walking down the aisle with the love of my life,” and he added “EN VIDA Y EN MUERTE,” which is what they’ve both been writing in their captions about each other for a while now.
It translates to “in life and in death,” which is nice, right?
We don’t have too much more information on the wedding yet, since they do seem to be off enjoying this special time together.
But in case you wanted more info on that amazing dress, it’s by designer Adolfo Sanchez!
A friend was also kind enough to share a photo from the reception — you can get a full look at the dress, plus the kind of decorations you’d expect from a Kat Von D wedding.
The friend congratulated the couple, saying “You are both beautiful people and deserve a lifetime of happiness together. Thanks for letting me be part of your amazing wedding!”
And honestly, in case you’re not getting our feelings on this, it really does look like it was an amazing wedding.
For the record, this is Kat’s second marriage — she was married to tattoo artist and Ink Master judge Oliver Peck from 2003 to 2007.
This is Rafael’s first marriage, but he does have a daughter from a previous relationship.
In a few months, they’ll welcome their baby, a boy they’ve said they’ll name Leafar.
Once again, congratulations!!!
