Tying the knot in New Orleans last month, The White Lotus actress Alexandra Daddario married producer Andrew Form in a quintessentially “Big Easy” ceremony at the legendary Preservation Hall. The actress just shared photos from her big day (photographed by Storm Santos) and also opened up about the unexpected way the couple met. It was amid the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and features the kind of meet-cute movie scripts are made of. 

Form was en route to Europe for a work trip and had to connect in New York City. Daddario told Vogue, “I was waiting for my co-op to approve me so I was sleeping on an acquaintance’s couch and would take frequent walks. He was also on a walk, and we passed each other downtown. He turned back and said ‘hi’ just as I was turning around to glance back at him. I laughed and said ‘hi,’ and then we both laughed about how we were the only two people on what is normally an incredibly busy street, and he asked if he could take me to dinner.”

Form had to catch a connecting flight in the morning, but asked his now-bride if she would like to have dinner when he came back from his trip. “I said ‘okay’ against my better judgment,” Daddario told the publication. “Nowadays, you’re supposed to meet people on dating apps!” After he returned from his trip, the two had their first date in the common area at the Greenwich Hotel, considering options were limited during the pandemic. “I brought my dog, and she wandered into the kitchen at one point, and we didn’t notice,” Daddario said. “Someone came out holding her and said, ‘Is this your dog?’”

While the couple officially got engaged in August of 2021, Daddario shared that the two agreed to marry one evening in April after a few glasses of wine. As for the proposal, the bride explained that it happened when she visited Form while he was working on the series Jack Ryan, filming in Athens. “He took me to the Four Seasons there so we could be by the beach,” she said. “He went outside, and I followed him, and he turned around and proposed, and then we walked and had a piña colada.”

Daddario opted for a hand pleated silk wool Danielle Frankel gown for the big day, which featured hand-embroidered chantilly lace floral appliqués along the bust and skirt. Topping off her look with a cascading veil for the ceremony, the Baywatch star wore her brunette locks in a low chignon, keeping her makeup dewy and natural. Form looked as dapper as ever in a cream pinstripe Brunello Cucinelli suit for the nuptials.

With Daddario calling New Orleans, “a city full of music and life,” the wedding certainly seemed like a lively celebration of love for the happy couple.
