LA Kings' defenseman shares wedding photos

Back on Saturday, July 11, 2009, Los Angeles Kings' defenseman Sean O'Donnell made good use of the offseason to marry his girlfriend, Laura Marie Buka. The classic vintage-themed wedding took place at Fort Street Presbyterian Church in Detroit, Michigan in front of family and friends including some of O'Donnell's present and former NHL teammates - Rob Blake, Drew Doughty, and Luc Robitaille. A reception followed in nearby Dearborn at the Henry Ford Museum.

“For my family to see me so happy and in love with a wonderful man was the highlight,” said Buka. “We’re best friends, and celebrating our day with all our closest friends and family meant the world to me.”

Buka wore a strapless Renee Strauss gown and a floor-length veil she made herself, while the bridesmaids were outfitted in gowns from David's Bridal.

At the reception, the guests dined at candlelit tables under crystal chandeliers, and watched the newlyweds share their first dance to "Let It Be Me" by Taylor Mills and Joe Brocato in a room at the Henry Ford Museum originally built to teach Ford employees the techniques of ballroom dance.

The couple, who got tattoos on their ring fingers with each other's names to celebrate their engagement, honeymooned in Greece and Italy.
