Actor Dennis Quaid Marries Younger Girlfriend Laura Savoie in a Santa Barbara Wedding
Dennis Quaid and Laura Savoie have made things official. In a secret getaway event, the pair tied the knot earlier this month and are finally talking about it.
Without family or friends present, they tied the knot at a seaside resort located in Santa Barbara. The pastor was their only witness at the ceremony.
Initially, Quaid, 66, and Savoie, 27, were hoping to have a private Hawaii wedding followed by a reception in Nashville which family and friends would attend.
QUAID AND SAVOIE DESCRIBE WEDDING
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the plan was scratched since public groups of over 10 people are prohibited. Although things are slowly returning to normal, Quaid and Savoie pushed forth anyway.
Quaid told People of his big day, "It was beautiful." Indeed, his wife's photos in her Chosen By One Day gown are stunning. Quaid looked handsome in a gray suit.
Savoie, who gained a master's degree in accountancy from the University of Notre Dame, also spoke on it. While taking their vows, she was reminded of "what it really means to bring your lives together."
WHY THEY EACH FELL IN LOVE
For Savoie, her heart fell when she saw how Quaid continues to find joy in life and has such a positive attitude. His unrelenting passion is a driving force for her.
The couple first announced their engagement in October 2019. Quaid has been married thrice before, while Savoie is new to it. However, their wide age gap presented them with unique criticism.
