'Big Bang Theory' Star Kaley Cuoco Gets Married In A Spectacular Wedding


'Big Bang Theory' Star Kaley Cuoco Gets Married In A Spectacular Wedding

When it comes to happily ever after, second time is hopefully the charm for Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco.

Two years after her divorce from professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting, Cuoco said "I do" again to equestrian Karl Cook.

The actress and Cook, the son of billionaire businessman Scott Cook, got engaged on Cuoco's birthday in November 2017 after almost two years of dating.


Hours before the proposal, Cook teased the birthday girl with a fake ring while shopping at Target.

"On my loves birthday I got her everything she has always wanted....now judging by her face maybe not, it's the thought that counts right," he shared on social media.

Later that day, he popped the question for real over a candlelit dinner with a gorgeous tear drop diamond ring.  

"Who knew my prior post was oracular. Well after nearly two years I finally got up the courage to ask her to marry me," Cook wrote on Instagram. "This is the best night of my life and I think the video shows it is the best night for kaley as well.....if she said yes!!!!!"

Cuoco, 32, gushed about finding love again with Cook, 27, a couple of times since they met.

"I finally found my horse guy," she said on The Talk. "It was very meant to be. He's an amazing rider, amazing equestrian and a great human. We shared a passion for horses and dogs ... It's been lovely."

"He is my perfect match," she said in another interview with People. "He lets me wake up in the morning and say, "˜I want to go and rescue rabbits.' And he's like, "˜All right, let's get a coffee and let's go.' And that is him. We are the same, our views are the same, our morals are the same, he is my perfect match."

Finally, on June 30, the lovebirds started a new chapter of lives together. They marked the special occasion in an intimate wedding at a horse stable near San Diego, California.

"Legally KCSQUARED 6-30-18 ❤," Cuoco captioned an Instagram post in which she and Cook are kissing in the stables.

Unlike her first wedding for which she wore pink, Cuoco opted for a regal white lace dress with a cape by Reem Acra. Cook went with a classic tuxedo for their equestrian-themed nuptials.

For the reception, Cuoco changed into another white lacy number. This time, it was a lace jumpsuit by Tadashi Shoji paired with Louise and Cie shoes.

Ok let's party!!! #kcsquared 💋 💕

The couple, who were married by Cuoco's sister Briana in front of a horseshoe altar, decided to share their own wedding vows, parts of which were recorded by some of their guests and later posted online.

Once the newlyweds sealed their marriage with a kiss, guests were invited to walk to the reception area via a 100-foot-long canopy of lights.

"There was the beauty room, wine room, beer room," said wedding planner Lauren Tatum. "A photo booth was set up, an ice luge was set up, dessert room and cigar rollers."

Guests were also treated to foot massages and had the option of getting their shoes shined in the beauty room.

"The beauty room that we named 'zhoosh,' that was a surprise to her...it means primp. It looked like a mini makeup store," Tatum described. "Hairsprays, deodorants, lipsticks, men's things, perfumes like crazy, toothbrushes, dental flosses"”anything you can think of...it was in there."

Part of the 1920s-inspired decor included a personalized ice luge and the bottom was "carved into the shape of Kaley's dress pattern and then the top of it had all kinds of things in there like a gramophone, a 1920s staircase, a horse."

For dinner, Tatum told E! News, they "had the biggest burgers known to mankind. We had KCsquared burned into the top of the bread. Everything you could think of to put on your burger to make it amazing."

Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Cuoco and Cook chose to serve cake pops and an assortment of other sweet treats, including freshly made ice cream using liquid nitrogen and Ruby's rhubarb pie, named after the actress's dog.

After dinner, aerial dancers, acrobats, a fire-breather, jugglers and magicians kept the '20s theme going with spectacular entertainment.

The band also played tunes into the early hours of the morning.

Before the party wrapped up around 2:30 a.m., guests were able to enjoy snacks like cotton candy, hot nuts, and tacos.

Tatum called the entire event "spectacular" and revealed that one guest said it was "the best night of their life."

I think it's safe to say Cuoco and Cook also had a night to remember. Congratulations to the happy couple!
