Mena Suvari Gets Married in Vatican City
Actress Mena Suvari wed concert and music producer Simone Sestito in a private church in the Vatican City, Saturday, June 26.
“The ceremony was truly unique and Mena looked breathtaking,” said one of the guests. “They are very much in love.” Reports indicate that the bride wore a gown by Stacey Bendet.
The couple met in Toronto Film Festival in 2007 and got engaged in July 2008 while they were on vacation in Jamaica. They married in Rome because most of Sestito’s family live near there.
Italian-Canadian Sestito, 25, and Suvari also held a private reception after the ceremony outside the city.
Suvari, 31, starred in the films American Beauty, American Pie and American Pie 2. She will next be seen in the movie You May Not Kiss the Bride.
This is the second marriage for Suvari. She was previously married to German-born cinematographer Robert Brinkmann who was 17 years her senior in 2000.They divorced five years later.
