On December 6, Vogue published photos of Hudgens’ wedding and her comments about it. Hudgens said they were married on December 2 at Azurik Art City in Tulum. She said she “knew I wanted to get married somewhere warm, but the chances of us getting married were slim because of Cole’s long [baseball] season. I felt like, “That’s Mexico!” I also wanted a very spiritual place. So I went to the hotel and took a very long trip, and I wasn’t doing too well for myself; I was so hot I felt like I was going to pass out. At the end of this long trip, I thought, “Where are we going to have the ceremony?” And they said, “Oh, it’s at our museum,” and they said, “It takes 45 minutes to get into the jungle.” And I thought, ‘Well, that sounds radical, but I think I’ll try it.'”
She wore a Vera Wang dress inspired by the supermodels of the ’90s. The dress she chose was the first she tried on: “I put it on, and I was like, ‘This is perfect.’ It’s simple, it’s easy, and it’s chic. It was what I wanted, but we obviously had to touch it up a little bit and add some extra love so that it was special and just for me. I wanted it to look like I was floating and loved the combination of the cape and veil.”
