Actress Stephanie March, of Law & Order: SVU fame, was married in Ketonah, New York on Friday, September 1, 2017, to venture capitalist Dan Benton. The couple said “I do” at their expansive home in Katonah, New York, with a small contingent of close friends and family on hand to bear witness. Reverend Lisa Zaro officiated.
She wore a colourful floral Dolce and Gabbana dress, accented with blue hydrangeas for her, and the groom wore a blue suit jacket with black pants and shoes. March’s friend Rebecca Perkins, with whom she co-founded Rouge Make-up Salons in New York City, did the bride’s make-up for her big day, and later told People, “I’ve never seen Stephanie as happy or as beautiful as she was today. She and Dan were surrounded by a close knit group of people who love, support and adore them. Stephanie’s family friend designed the magnificent floral arrangements, I did her makeup, and her best friend played her grandmother’s piano as Stephanie walked down the aisle … It was an absolutely picture-perfect ceremony.”
The bride unconventionally walked down the aisle to the theme from Star Wars. Following the ceremony, guests sipped margaritas and rose, and dined on caviar in the elegant, unique, and intimate ceremony.
March, 43, whose ten year marriage to celebrity chef Bobby Flay came to an end in 2015, met Benton, 58, through a mutual friend in October 2015. He proposed on July 24th this year, while they were on a birthday trip to Greece for her.
