Charlie Sheen & Brooke Mueller
According to earlier reports, Brooke Mueller stated she wanted a large traditional wedding with all the trimmings. Charlie however, stated he preferred a small private affair as this would be a third marriage for him. It seems that he convinced Brooke to do it his way! On May 30th, in a gorgeous sunset ceremony, Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller said their vows in a very intimate ceremony with only close friends and family members in attendance. Sheen is a co star of Two and a Half Men while Brooke is a real estate investor.
The nuptials were held at a private estate located in Beverly Hills. The couple shared their special occasion with Charlie’s parents, Martin and Janet Sheen and his brothers Emilio and Ramon Esteves. Charlie’s three daughters from previous marriages were in attendance as well. His two youngest daughters, Sam and Lola, served as flower girls during the ceremony. Others attending the ceremony included friends Eric Dane and his wife Rebecca Gayheart, who had introduced the couple to each other two years ago.
The bride was stunning in a long flowing classical silk Reem Acra gown and a floral headdress. The groom was sporting a suit that he purchased at Men’s Wearhouse. They wrote their own vows and decided to have no other attendants. The ceremony was officiated by a local ordained minister who was a friend of the couple.
The couple‘s wedding décor was planned using their natural surroundings as inspiration. Celebrity wedding planner Yifat Oren used the beauty of the private estate as the backdrop and an enhancement of the couples’ décor. Earth tones including deep rich browns, greens, golds, and reds were used on the tables and decorations in the reception area. Simple, but classy, elegance prevailed with pear, oranges and chocolate colored candles adorning the tables. The guests were served hors d’ oeuvres and a three course meal. The wedding cake was a gorgeous concoction and, while staying with the nature theme, was adorned with birds. The guests were later entertained by a live rock and roll band.
The couple asked that no gifts be purchased. In lieu of gifts, they asked for donations to be made to Chrysalis, which is an organization that helps those who are homeless change their lives. Following the reception the couple traveled to a honeymoon spot in Costa Rica.
When asked if he felt like the third time was the charm, Charlie stated “Yeah, but this feels like the first real marriage for me. The first marriage was for show and the second one was a con,” according to reports by OK magazine. He also stated that he would not do anything differently with this marriage to make it successful than he had been doing for the past two years that the couple had been together. Sheen stated he felt comfortable that their love and trust as well as their being “best friends” was their key to a successful relationship.
Charlie met Brooke in 2006 through friends Eric Dane and his wife, Rebecca Gayheart. Charlie was separated from his, now ex wife, Denise Richards at that time. He proposed to Brooke in July, 2007.The engagement ring was a stunner, set with an 11 carat diamond. Sheen had the ring custom designed for Brooke by Lord Alon Barak.
Charlie and wife Brooke are expecting twins in April of 2009. The couple reportedly wanted boys as Sheen has three daughters from previous marriages and used an infertility procedure called sperm spinning to increase his chances of having boys this time around. Hopefully, the new Mr. and Mrs. Sheen will have both their desired boys AND a long and happy marriage.
