A Coachella wedding: Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr. marries Nicole Trunfio in Palm Springs


Grammy-winning musician Gary Clark Jr. and model Nicole Trunfio tied the knot in the desert on Tuesday, April 19. For their nuptials, the newlyweds took their love back to place where it all began — Palm Springs, California.

The pair met four years earlier in the area, while attending the Coachella Music and Arts Festival and became engaged in 2014. Gary is set to play both weekends of this year's Coachella, which is why they decided to wed on a weekday.

Nicole continued, "As a model, I don't usually get to choose the styles I wear on the day of a shoot, but on my wedding day I got to show off my style."


The couple made sure to include their one-year-old son Zion in the ceremony. The little boy was carried down the aisle by his godmother and fellow model Jessica Gomes.

Nicole and her groom exchanged vows beneath a floral arch. Rcealling the moment she admitted, “This was my favorite part of the day.” She added, "I loved reading my vows and hearing Gary read his."

"Music had a huge role in our wedding," Nicole said. "It's the story of our lives and our love. We created a list and passed it around to our closest friends to add selections to, so it became a collaboration between us and the bridal party."
