Pictures were finally released along with a post via Gossip’s Facebook page.
“At long last, now that we have returned home and recovered from all the amazingness and had some time to bask in the afterglow, we are excited to share with you a pic or two from Beth and Kristin’s wedding!” the post read. “So much love and appreciation to all of our family and friends who celebrated with us! And a huge thank you to Jean Paul Gaultier for the dream-come-true dress!”
The barefoot Ditto wore a short dress which with a revealing neckline, designed by Jean Paul Gaultier. Ogata, who is from Hawaii, wore a casual cropped blazer, shorts and white sneakers.
The couple, who have been friends for over a decade, got engaged in 2012. “I love the idea of being partnered forever. I love my girlfriend, we’ve been best friends since I was 18. There’s not a thing we haven’t been through except for marriage,” Ditto said in an interview with the Guardian in May.
