The newlyweds both shared their first wedding photo on Instagram on Sunday, showing themselves holding hands and gazing into each other’s eyes as they walked down a driveway together. "Yesterday was the best day of our lives! We became husband and wife in front of God, our families, and those we love. It was intimate, moving, and emotional," Chris captioned the photo.

The Avengers: Endgame actor added: "We feel so blessed to begin this new chapter of our lives. We are so thankful to our families and our friends who stood with us and grateful to Mr. Giorgio Armani who created a once in a lifetime dress for Katherine to wear and for me, the perfect suit. This morning we feel nothing but blessed."

The Guardians of the Galaxy star was previously married to actress Anna Faris, and the pair separated in August 2017 after eight years of marriage. At the time, Chris released a statement which great: "Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another."
