Denise Richards is not like other brides. While most brides have months to find and chose the perfect wedding dress, Richards only had 24 hours.
Just two days after the engagement between Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers was announced, the pair proceeded to tie the knot in an intimate wedding in Malibu this past Saturday.
Richards' gown was revealed to be a stunning floral print mini-dress with a train of sheer fabric that was designed by Mark Zunino.
Zunino received a lot of opinions on the design worn by Denise so he defended her choice by writing in an Instagram caption, "Here’s our thought: we work for the bride/client. As long as they’re in love with the design, we feel we’ve done our job. Unless you’ve paid for it or are the one wearing it you don’t have to worry about it! We are thrilled that Denise felt beautiful on her special day and love how the dress 100% fit her personality and the setting. We look forward to working with any of you and creating the dress of your dreams no matter what anyone else thinks! XOXO.”
Denise was previously married to actor Charlie Sheen from 2002 to 2006. The pair share two daughters Sam, 14, and Lola, 13. Denise also has a third daughter Eloise, 7.
Meanwhile, Phypers was previously married to Desperate Housewives star Nicollette Sheridan and split two years ago following six months of marriage. After Phypers finalized his divorce from Sheridan in August 2017, he begun dating Richards in December 2017.
A source shared to PEOPLE that the pair didn't want to have an over-the-top wedding, saying, “Denise and Aaron just want a small group of people to be at the wedding, really just their inner circle,” the source remarked. “They’ve both done this before and this time just want to exchange vows in front of the people who are most important.”
The source also shared that, “[Denise] and Aaron are extremely happy, and he’s definitely game with her on-camera persona,” the insider continued. “He’s on board with the drama that the show might bring, and Denise is a total pro with this. She’s done it before and knows how to navigate life on and off camera even when the show gets blurred with reality. He seems to care for her in a real way and is up for whatever she throws at him and vice versa. They’re a good team.”
Denise is set to star in the next season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and gave fans a sneak peak of her wedding via Bravo.
In the video the actress gushes, "Hi, I'm Denise Richards, and yep, the rumours are true: This is my husband Aaron, and we just got married."
Phypers added, "Love you, baby."
The premiere of RHOBH is set to include vision of the wedding.
