Vanessa married Jim for a second time 

The former Desperate Housewives star shared snaps and a video of their special day across her social media channels. Posting a particularly loving photo of herself kissing Jim, the star captioned the photo: "Yesterday we took one last walk down the aisle — this time in my little church. Officially wedded Catholic. Amen! #MyJim," accompanied by a kissing emoji.

Fans of the couple were quick to offer their congratulations, with one commenting: "Congratulations to you both Lovebirds!" while another wrote: "Just beautiful! A Catholic wedding is incredibly special, you look so happy."

The bride wore a stunning low cut Pamela Roland white gown with a pale pink sash, and looked to be in good spirits in a short video she shared on Instagram, showing her dancing in her gown with friends while holding a matching white fan. She captioned the video: "Whip, Nae Nae...Stanky Leg… Wedding weekend part deux."

The 53-year-old also wore her long brunette locks in a loose bun, revealing a pair of elegant silver earrings. Jim, on the other hand, looked smart in a blue suit and pink tie, matching Vanessa's sash.

One of the star's daughters, Jillian, shared the same video of her mother enjoying the day, writing: "The highlight of my weekend was being able to see my Mom glow with love! She really is the most generous person I know, she has always deserved an amazing life which she worked very hard for, and I am SO happy to see her with a man she loves. Congrats again to her and Jim for tying the knot!"

The actress opened up about her husband to People magazine, saying: "Jim is a real man. You want somebody in your life who has integrity, who is solid, who knows who he is. He's romantic and he's a great guy."
