Despite Carrie and Debbie not physically in attendance, they were definitely there in spirit as Billie made sure to honour her late mother and grandmother throughout the day.
For starters, Billie’s wedding ring was actually the very same ring Carrie Fisher wore, which Austen had reset. Billie also wore her mother’s favourite blue fire opal ring during the ceremony along with a borrowed ring that was gifted by Carrie to a friend.
But the tribute didn't end there. Billie also told the publication that her wedding shoes were inspired by heels her mum used to wear in the 90s, and unbeknownst to her at the time, were actually purchased from a boutique Carrie used to frequent.
“In true Carrie fashion, we threw glitter in the air at the end of the ceremony. It was magical. I could not have dreamed up a more perfect wedding,” Billie said.
Later in the evening, after the beach-side ceremony, the bride changed into another custom Rodarte dress. This time, the vintage style was influenced by Billie’s grandmother Debbie Reynolds.
“It was inspired by my glam-ma Debbie Reynolds’s iconic dance outfits that she used to wear in all of her shows and is probably the most fun party outfit of all time,” Billie revealed.
Both Billie and Austen took to social media to share photos from the big day. While Billie opted to simply caption her post with the date the pair tied the knot, Austen wrote “married my best friend this weekend.”
Given the destination wedding, we’re sure that Billie and Austen will continue the celebrations and kick off their honeymoon in Mexico.
