Vanessa Hudgens dishes out wedding details after tying the knot with new ... trends now
Hudgens, who rose to fame starring in High School Musical, admitted that scouting the wedding location was no easy feat.
'The planning process was definitely overwhelming,' the performer shared with the magazine.
'I knew I’d never been to a wedding that I’ve wanted my own wedding to be like, so I had to think out of the box. Finding a venue was the hardest part.'
Vanessa Hudgens has opened up about wedding details after marrying baseball star Cole Tucker in Tulum, Mexico last weekend

The star added, 'I knew I didn’t want to do it at a beach, at a ballroom, or at a barn —these were all things I didn’t want. Instead, I wanted to be surrounded by nature, greenery, and foliage.'

The ivory chartreuse bias-cut cowl-neck slip dress boasted a plunging back and she wore a veil that read, 'Mrs. T December 2nd, 2023' in gothic font.
