Kat Von D wedding to Deadmau5 to have underwater theme, mermaids
Kat Von D and fiance DJ Deadmau5 are set to wed this summer, and in typical Von D fashion, she promises it will be "the furthest thing from traditional."
The 32-year-old tattoo artist and her fiance, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, are set to have an underwater-themed wedding, according to People magazine.
On Aug. 10, the two will exchange vows at a ceremony in Los Angeles with 200 friends and family present. The undersea-themed event will include various blue and green foods, as well as performers dressed as mermaids. The former "LA Ink" star's wedding gown will also fit the whimsical occasion.
"It will have a sleek silhouette and include hints of iridescent teals, blues and deep violet ombre gradients," Von D told the magazine. She called upon designers Falguni and Shane Peacock to make the gown, with Deadmau5 contributing to the design.
"Being with Joel is the only thing that feels more natural than tattooing," she told the magazine about her soon-to-be husband.
"Our wedding is merely a celebration of that love and commitment we live in already," Deadmau5 added.
The pair became engaged after the musician proposed via Twitter on Dec. 15, 2012.
"I can't wait for Christmas so.... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me," Deadmau5 wrote on Twitter with a picture of a ring attached.
The tattoo artist has been dating Deadmau5 since September. The two announced their break up on Facebook and Twitter in November, but later reconciled.
Kat Von D was previously engaged to Jesse James, ex-husband of Sandra Bullock. Von D and James broke up in September 2011.
