Shortly after 7:00 PM on New Year's Eve, Playmate Crystal Harris became Mrs. Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion! The happy couple said their vows before a very small group of friends and family in the Great Hall of the Mansion. Earlier in the day, Mrs. Hefner tweeted:
"@CrystalHarris Today is the day I become Mrs. Hugh Hefner. Feeling very happy, lucky, and blessed."
Shortly before the intimate ceremony, Crystal posted photos of the archway where they were going to say their vows, and a close up of the incredible flowers lining it. Hef just posted the first photo of the happy couple as newlyweds, including his Best Man, brother Keith Hefner. Crystal's Maid-of-Honor is rumored to have been her best friend and business partner, actress Ashley Matthau. Carrying a bouquet of roses, it appears that Crystal wore the dress she had intended to wear at their first wedding planned for June 2011. Crystal Harris had earned the nickname "Runaway Bride" after leaving Hefner five days before the wedding. No cold feet this time! She told US Weekly, "Our relationship is better than it ever has been before. I'm very happy and Hef's very happy and we're excited." Shortly before midnight (PST), along with posting the first photos, Mr. Hefner tweeted:
"@HughHefner Crystal & I married on New Year's Eve in the Mansion with Keith as my Best Man. Love that girl!"
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Hefner!
