Joey King and Steven Piet’s Mallorca Wedding Channeled ‘The Great Gatsby,’ With a Spanish Twist

Since the wedding dress—with its dramatic strapless neckline and large fabric flower-petal paillettes—was such a statement, Joey decided to keep the glam simple. “Because it was so windy during the ceremony, we did add a bit of texture,” she explains. As for beauty, the bride wanted some sparkle but also to make sure she looked like herself. For nails, she wanted to incorporate elements of the dress, so they included scalloped detailing to match the flower-petal paillettes on the gown. “I’m so lucky to have my team that I’ve been working with for so many years be part of this day,” Joey says. “It means the world!”

The ceremony, which took place atop the lower-terrace swimming pool, was, in Joey’s words, “absolute perfection.” The couple’s friend Erik officiated, and Sabrina Carpenter sang her down the aisle. “Looking out from the altar at all of our friends and family was an unforgettable moment,” Joey says. “We truly felt so perfectly present, and soaking in every detail was pure magic.” Steven’s nieces and nephew and Joey’s grandmother all did readings. “Between that and hearing Steven’s vows and being able to read mine to him…. Nothing could’ve made this moment better,” she adds. “Also might I add, it was raining heavily right before the ceremony, and somehow the sun shone right as guests arrived. We were truly the luckiest people.”

After the service, guests made their way to a palatial party tent pitched alongside the main house. There, Joey’s mother and sisters and Steven’s brother all delivered hilarious and heartwarming speeches. “There were tears everywhere,” Joey says. “And then the food and drinks—oh, God, the food and drinks. It was unreal! The Jesse James’s Usual—named after our beloved dog—was the most delicious spicy marg, and the beef cheeks were truly a highlight for me.”

The newlyweds shared their first dance to Cat Power’s “Sea of Love.” “It was magical,” Joey says. “Looking at my perfect husband while dancing to this perfect song was a dream.” From that point on, however, the party ramped up. “We danced so hard that we looked like we had taken showers because we were so sweaty,” Joey jokes. “The best part was seeing all our friends who didn’t know each other just melting into one another and instantly connecting. We are surrounded by the best people, and seeing them all together was infectiously joyous.”
