First Comes Love...

...then comes a magical, over-the-top destination wedding in sunny Italy.

Beautifully Unique

Linda's colorful, hand-beaded, cathedral-length silk gown was created by L.A.-based designer, Claire Pettibone.

The Shoes

Pre-Wedding Surprise

Tears flowed when Linda received a sweet surprise from her fiancé — an original song he penned and recorded for their special day.

Happy Tears

You Chose Me

Drew also filmed a music video for the song, which includes sweet clips of their big day. Watch it here.

Primed + Primped

JD Scott's fiance, makeup artist Annalee Belle, helped Linda get ready for her trip down the aisle.

Mother + Daughter Moment

Linda's mom, Barbara, put the finishing touches on her daughter's gorgeous gown.

First Look: Bridesmaid Edition

Linda's ladies gushed as the bride stepped out in her finished ensemble.

A Quiet Moment

The Bouquet

Linda's stunning bouquet of mauve roses, cream garden roses, white lisianthus and trailing greenery was crafted by Italian event and floral designer, Vincenzo Dascanio.

The Beautiful Bride

Linda's dress featured an open-back design, dripping with strands of jewels.

Before the First Look

Traditional Garb

The groom and his male relatives wore Claymore Imports kilts, made from the Scott tartan. Non-family groomsmen wore kilts in a different pattern.

Something Old, Something New

Drew's sporran (a traditional pouch worn on pocketless kilts) features the Scott family crest.

A Moment of Reflection

Great Scott!

Fun fact: Dad, Jim, emigrated from Scotland to Canada as a teenager with dreams of becoming a movie star (he ended up remodeling houses instead, lucky for us). As a nod to their Scottish heritage, the men of the Scott family donned traditional kilts on Drew's big day. Drew and Linda originally planned to marry in Scotland, but decided against it, citing weather concerns.

Could You Choose a Side?

The Blushing Bride

Escorted by her and Drew's respective dads, Linda beamed as she made her way down the aisle.

The Ceremony

A gorgeous day, a beautiful Italian venue and a breathtaking floral-draped gazebo made for a spectacular spot to say "I do."

An Intimate Angle

You May Kiss the Bride

In Linda's Instagram post of this image she writes, "You both are choosing each other. You have chosen to be with someone who enhances you, who makes you think, makes you smile, makes you laugh and makes every day brighter."

A Cause for Celebration

Showered in Flowers

Linda's bridesmaids, clad in emerald green dresses from Reformation, celebrate a post-nuptial smooch.

Closeup Kisses

Hey, What's Under There?

It wouldn't be a Scott wedding without some goofy antics!

The Wedding Party

The Reception

Wedding planner, Oany Ravello, decorated the reception space in emerald green (Linda's favorite color) and pops of blush pink.

Reception Dress Close Up

After the ceremony, Linda slipped into another Claire Pettibone design that allowed her to dance the night away in comfort and style.

The Happy Couple

Drew also changed into something more comfortable for the after-party — a custom tux by GotStyle.

Cake With Meaning

The four-tiered designer cake featured four unique flavors — goat cheese and strawberry balsamic, organic red velvet, carrot and chocolate hazelnut — and was adorned with a cascade of tiny biscuits that featured the Scottish symbol for "I love" and the Chinese characters for "double happiness."

Darling Details

Even the light bulbs were in love!

The Sweetheart Table

Guest Books + Games

The couple gave guests two options for "signing the book" — to add their name to a Jenga block and/or tape an instant picture into a coffee table photo album.

The Best Man Speech

Drew's then-single twin brother, Jonathan, said of the couple, "The special bond they have has given me hope."

A Surprise Performance

Drew's former DWTS dance partner Emma Slater and her husband, Sasha Farber, choreographed a special first dance that the couple performed for their guests.

Cha Cha, Real Smooth

Dance Till Dawn

The reception reportedly lasted until 5:30 a.m. the next morning.
