Kaley Cuoco of 'The Big Bang Theory' Marries Karl Cook
This is the actor's second time down the aisle.
The Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco married her fiance of seven months, equestrian Karl Cook, on Saturday.
The animal-loving couple tied the knot at an undisclosed location in Rancho Sante Fe, Calif., with horse Tilly and bulldog Tank in attendance. The wedding party walked dogs down an aisle that was decorated with string lights and foliage, and the newlyweds snapped photos in stables. Cuoco posted that horse Sammy "snuggled my ears" five minutes before walking down the aisle, when Gin Wigmore sang "I Will Love You."
Getting ready in a feed room, Cuoco wore a custom Reem Acra wedding gown and cape for the special day (made by 10 seamstresses in 400 hours using 50 yards of pure silk chiffon and decorated with handmade floral appliques, says stylist Brad Goreski). For the reception, she changed into a Tadashi Shoji jumpsuit with a Temperley London belt and white pointed-toe Kota pumps by Louise et Cie.
Cuoco played up the theme "KC squared," as both husband and wife's initials are "KC," on the party menu and in matching denim jackets that Cuoco and Cook both wore. They also posed for photos in front of a giant horseshoe made of roses and wheat.
On Monday, Cook posted a video of the couple's first dance along with his vows in the caption: "Kaley…I hate you the least of all people in the world. Outside of you I have no need for anything. Without you I am nothing."
Cook read a note that he wrote soon after they met, saying, "I have loved you from the very first night we met. Every day since then has been only devoted to you. From waking to midday to night time to sleeping, nothing but who we are together matters. I promise to understand you plucking my unibrow comes from a place of love. I promise to remove any errant insect that journeys into our home. I promise to love and take care of all our animals no matter what and how many we bring home."
Cuoco, who plays Penny on the CBS comedy, previously married tennis player Ryan Sweeting in 2014 and changed her credit on the show to Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting before divorcing in 2016. The same year, she began dating Cook, who proposed with a Nadis Diamond ring on her 32nd birthday in November 2017.
At the time, Cook posted, "Well after nearly two years I finally got up the courage to ask her to marry me. This is the best night of my life and I think the video shows it is the best night for kaley as well."
Unfortunately the celebration was short-lived, as Cuoco's "honeymoon" also consisted of a shoulder surgery.
My vows to the love of my life with a little clip of our first dance. ‘Kaley…I hate you the least of all people in the world. Outside of you I have no need for anything. Without you I am nothing. I thought I would read something I wrote three days after the first night we met. We felt safe, challenged, and free. We could be who we are without thought for the ridiculous complexities of social norms. It was as if we were floating on a magic carpet not bound by the slings and arrows that entrap so many. We talked and talked rejecting the very idea of time or place. There is a rhythm and a pulse to us like ocean waves crashing upon the rocks; just like those waves on those rocks we feel like a force of nature. All these raw and beautiful feelings exude from deep deep within me from a tiny and at the same time vacuous corner. I guess that is the power of a true human connection. If you can not tell I have loved you from the very first night we met. Every day since then has been only devoted to you. From waking to midday to night time to sleeping, nothing but who we are together matters.’ I promise to understand you plucking my unibrow comes from a place of love I promise to remove any errant insect that journeys into our home. I promise to love and take care of all our animals no matter what and how many we bring home. From this breathe to my very last… I am yours. @enjetmedia @enjettiff @bricuoco @joegillette
