Inside Barron Hilton’s elegant St. Barts wedding

Hilton heir Barron Hilton II tied the knot with Countess Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorff over the weekend in St. Barts — the destination island where the couple first met.

The extravagant weekend kicked off with a Saturday night rehearsal dinner for close friends and family, where von Walderdorff wore an elegant white corset and pants by Wtoo by Watters.

On Sunday, the wedding ceremony was held in a stunning church in the vibrant island capital, Gustavia.

“It wasn’t over the top,” an insider who attended the celebration told Page Six. “It was very beautiful and tasteful.”

The bride, 23, walked down the aisle wearing an intricately-beaded custom wedding gown by Watters and an ivory veil gifted to her by designer Toni Federici. The groom, 28, looked dapper in a crisp white suit with his hair slicked back.

Following the ceremony, family and friends headed to Villa La Plage, a luxurious villa on the beach, for the reception. According to our source the dance floor overlooked the water and there was dancing, rejoicing, and “great vibes.”

The newlyweds looked “so, so in love,” the insider said. “They were so happy.”

Hilton and von Walderdorff’s first dance was to “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby” by the band Cigarettes After Sex — an appropriate choice for the former bad-boy and edgy socialite.

“I’m so in love with you, my love,” von Waldedorff wrote on social media just days before saying “I do.” “Words cannot even begin to describe what it’s like to get lost in your smile, locked in your gaze, tickled by your lips.”

Distinguished guests included the groom’s siblings, Nicky Hilton Rothschild and Paris Hilton, who surprised guests by jumping on the turntables to DJ.

Absent from the festivities was Barron’s aunt Kyle Richards, who according to her rep, “Was invited but she had a press tour for her new show.” Her rep also noted of any rumored family drama, “There’s nothing going on with the family.”

As Page Six previously reported, Hilton proposed to the blonde beauty in October 2017 in Central Park.
