In what I would describe as a touching tribute, Cody Williams and his new wife, Maria Flores Williams, had their wedding on what would have been Robin Williams' 68th birthday.
Cody Williams, 27, married Maria Flores on Sunday at the home the actor and his ex-wife Marsha Garces Williams shared while raising their son and daughter, Zelda, 29, PEOPLE confirms. (Robin is also survived by son Zachary, 36, whom he had with Valerie Velardi.)
PEOPLE also reported that the home in which they tied the knot was also where the newlyweds fell in love over six years ago.
In a touching remembrance to commemorate their loved ones, thy included a tribute to Robin, Maria’s late grandfather Daniel Flores, her aunt Carol Bowling and Cody’s cousin Todd Elsner, among many others.
Wedding guests held up yellow roses while a recording of Maria singing “Never Enough” played. A candle with three wicks was also lit to signify the undying love for those in their family who have died.
His sister Zelda shared a beautiful message to the couple via Instagram:
"The 21st of July has meant many things to me over the years. It’s the birthday of one of my favorite souls still on this earth, @junotemple. It’s the day Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon (as a space nerd, that’s pretty damn important).And it was the day my Dad was born, and the last day I got to see him.That last one had begun to usurp the joy of the first two in recent years... that is, until two days ago, when it became something new.On the 21st of July, 2019, it became the day I officially gained a new sister!To @mariaaafloresssswilliams and Cody, you are a light in all of our lives. I’m so grateful to have paid witness to your love over the years, to have watched you grow and care for each other in ways we should all be so lucky to experience. You were already part of the family in my eyes, but now there’s an official slip of paper somewhere that agrees! Zak, Mom and I love you both dearly, and I think I can speak for all of us when I say CONGRATULATIONS TO THE BRIDE AND GROOM!!! 🎊🥂🍾🍰💫🕊 ♥️17h"
Cody isn't the only one to pay tribute to his late father in recent months.
Zak announced the special news that he and his fiancé Olivia June welcomed a baby boy, McLaurin Clement Williams. The couple honored Robin with their newborn's name as McLaurin was the Oscar winner's middle name.
It's clear that the children of the late star miss him.
