Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl were married over the weekend in an "intimate ceremony" in Bedford, New York. In place of a traditional wedding dress, Palermo styled three pieces by her "favorite designer" Carolina Herrera together: a cream cashmere sweater, a pair of "chic" white shorts, and a tulle skirt overlay featuring a floral pattern that's a little reminiscent of Beyoncé's sheer white Grammys dress. She paired the ensemble with a pair of blue Manolo Blahnik heels (her "something blue;" Johannes' "something" was a pocket square.) According to the writeup at OliviaPalermo.com, which features exclusive wedding photos, it's an "effortlessly stunning" look that "[personifies] bridal bliss." And I mean, a bridal sweater! How daring.

Guests at the occasion included only close family members and two of Olivia and Johannes' closest friends. Apparently the couple wanted to keep things quiet and stylish, "private and special," but Page Six also reports that the ceremony might have been a bit of a rush-job — a green card wedding, even. Johannes, a German citizen and former model, left his agency last year and has since "been experiencing visa issues which might have forced him to leave the US sooner." (As a British citizen with MUCH experience with US "visa issues," this sounds like a polite way of saying his visa was set to run out without the possibility of a renewal. And you do not want to overstay past your visa's end date/fuck with U.S. immigration AT ALL, let me tell you.) This unfortunate situation meant the couple had to move their wedding — apparently planned for St. Barths in the fall — forward, and to a location within the States.

"Olivia's friends were surprised when they got married at City Hall on Saturday," Page Six continues. "The only guests [were] his friend Ulli Saeuberlich and her parents, who weren't happy with the rush, but decided to be there at the last minute." Now, this report does conflict with the news from Olivia's site, which says the ceremony happened in Bedford, though it's possible that they held the more romantic, photo-appropriate part of their day there after making things official. And Olivia's rep said "the whole visa thing is not relevant," when asked for comment. She added that the happy couple "had always planned to have a small civil wedding in June," and are planning "something much larger" later in the year also. If that big blow-out wedding party happens after Johannes' green card as the spouse of an American citizen comes through and frees him up to travel internationally again, well, that's just a happy coincidence!

That said, Olivia and Johannes had dated for six and a half years prior to their big day; it's not as if they're not a legitimate couple. If a few visa-related scheduling shenanigans mean their relationship remains as blissful and uncomplicated as it probably is, then more power to them both.
