The daughter of Paul Walker, Meadow Walker, is now married to Louis Thornton-Allan.
But the model wasn’t able to so without her late father’s good friend, Vin Diesel.
This past Friday, Meadow, 22, shared a black and white video of the intimate ceremony on Instagram. Family and close friends were in attendance, including her father’s Fast and Furious costars Vin Diesel and Jordana Brewster. In the clip, Meadow and Thornton-Allan can been seen in a white car while posing for wedding photographs.
Walker shared with Vogue how the pandemic “impacted our plans.”
“Louis’s family wasn’t able to attend,” she said. “A lot of close friends whom we consider family were also unable to attend due to travel restrictions.”
After their wedding ceremony, they threw a beach party: “We were all barefoot, dancing in the sand,” Walker mentioned.
“To finish the night, there was a wonderful display of fireworks, and we lit lanterns into the picturesque night sky,” she shared with the outlet.
The two announced they were engaged in August when Walker boasted her engagement ring on Instagram in a photo while in the swimming pool.
But Vin Diesel was not the only who filled some big shoes this year. Luke Bryan, 45, walked his late sister’s daughter Jordan Cheshire down the aisle in early September.
Jordan is the oldest of three children. Her parents were Kelly and Lee Cheshire. Back in 2007, Kelly passed away at the young age of 39 due to undetermined causes. And then, seven years later, Kelly’s husband died of a heart attack.
Bryan and his wife, Caroline, of course, decided to raise nieces Jordan and Kris, and nephew, Til.
In a now deleted Instagram video posted by Emily Clarke Events on Monday, Bryan is seen walking Jordan toward her groom, Clint Eudy, at the Troubadour Golf and Field Club in College Grove, Tennessee. In the past 25 years, and in addition to his sister, Bryan has lossed many family members. In 1996, his older brother, Chris, was killed in a car accident at age 26. Just one year before his sister Kelly would pass away and eight years before Lee would also pass on.
“I’ve had so many tragedies in my life,” says Bryan, “it’s almost like you don’t want to tell the story because you don’t want to feel like you’re out there craving sympathy.”
