The last time Pam Anderson got married, a little over a year ago to musician Kid Rock, it was an international affair, with several ceremonies spread out around the globe. But this weekend, when the former Baywatch beauty swapped vows with beau Rick Salomon, it was a slightly more intimate setting — despite it taking place inside a Las Vegas resort.
The ceremony itself, with only 40 guests, including Tobey Maguire, My Name Is Earl‘s Ethan Suplee among others, took place inside a private VIP villa with a private entrance at The Mirage. The villa was heavily decorated in white roses, with petals
scattered around the fountain which stood as the centerpiece for the ceremony. Of course, this being Vegas, there were five bottles of Cristal champagne lined up
by the altar for post-”I do” toasting. There was also a four-tier
wedding cake with “Pam & Rick” written on it. Above it all, the chandeliers were decked out with paper doves.
The ceremony started at 9:10 p.m., as Pam and her escort strode down the aisle to Sade’s “By Your Side.” The vows were relatively traditional, and when Pam and Rick, who did not exchange rings, each said “I do,” the guests applauded wildly. In true Vegas style, the whole ceremony took approximately 10 minutes.
Afterward, guests dined on food from Stack restaurant and bar at the Mirage. The menu included pigs in a blanket, crunchy tuna tacos, lobster, miso black cod lettuce cups and mini donut “munchkin” holes. Considering how avid an animal rights campaigner Pam is, it’s not shocking that she didn’t partake of this carnivore’s delight. The music was supplied by DJ Neva, Jet Nightclub’s resident DJ.
Of course, Pam also had to get back to work, rushing back to Planet Hollywood for her 10 p.m. performance in illusionist Hans Klok‘s stage show. Talk about a busy night!
Following her performance, Pam returned to the villa at The Mirage, wearing a denim mini dress while new hubby Rick, who had worn a black suit to the wedding, was in an Adidas tracksuit.
“It was a fun, intimate party,” one guest tells OK!. “Nothing wild or outrageous.” As for talk that there’s something fishy about this quicky marriage, the guest replies, “Whatever anybody may say about these two getting married to each other, it was very sincere.”
