Model Meadow Walker wore Givenchy to marry actor Louis Thornton-Allan in the Dominican Republic

Model Meadow Walker, the beloved daughter Fast Furious star Paul Walker, was working in Europe when she had to go into quarantine for work. Her boyfriend, actor Louis Thornton-Allan, was back in New York by then. “It was the longest we’ve been apart since we were together, and I missed him so much,” she recalls. “He flew to London to surprise me and we quarantined ourselves together. After spending more time with his family in England, he was eager to see the ring we had thought to design and offered with a ring I had received on set that day. It was so sentimental and sweet. I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

The two celebrated their wedding earlier this month in the Dominican Republic, saying their vows in front of an intimate group of family and friends. “The pandemic has had an impact on our plans,” says Meadow. “Louis’ family could not be present. Many close friends who we consider to be family were also unable to attend due to travel restrictions. ”

Meadow’s aunt Paloma graciously helped the couple plan the wedding. “She did an amazing job,” Meadow says. “We couldn’t have imagined it to be more perfect and personal, and honestly, it was easy and straightforward. Louis and I knew exactly what we wanted from the start. It was a very intimate celebration.

While the pandemic took an impact on logistics, as well as who might be physically present on her wedding day, choosing a look for the clean-cut affair was the stuff of fashion dreams for Meadow. “One of the first people I called after my engagement was my dear friend Matt,” the bride recalls. “I asked him if he would design a dress for me. He said absolutely and congratulated me. It was only after the call that the shock set in when Matthew Williams agreed to design bespoke Givenchy Haute Couture wedding dresses for me!

A few days later, Meadow received several sketches. “I wanted something timeless, chic and elegant,” she says. “Matthew’s clean, modern touch made it the perfect piece. She wore a custom Givenchy Haute Couture dress to the beach ceremony, and a fun, young dress to the celebration in New York City that followed in the days following the couple’s return from the Dominican Republic.

“My good friend Meadow is already the most beautiful person inside and out,” says Williams, Givenchy’s Creative Director. “So I really wanted to let her personality shine through with the simplest and most modern wedding dress in silk cady, with a pure hourglass shape; a halter; and an avant-garde design without backrest anchored by a simple strap. We kept the train minimalist. And the veil was so ethereal, it was barely there, which kept the focus on her beautiful eyes; face; and natural and sculptural glamor. The bride’s engagement ring was custom-made by close friend Eduardo Saggese at Eclat Jewels, and she wore Tiffany & Co. jewelry to complement her dresses.

After the ceremony, the small group gathered for a beautiful candlelit dinner, followed by the cutting of the cake and a beach party. For this part of the evening, Meadow transformed into Ludovic de Saint Sernin’s look. “We were all barefoot, dancing in the sand,” says Meadow. “To end the night, there was a magnificent fireworks display and we lit lanterns in the picturesque night sky.”
