Markle walked down the aisle wearing a Givenchy dress that was designed by British designer Clare Waight Keller. She’s also wearing the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau Tiara, on loan from Queen Elizabeth for the occasion. Her new father-in-law, Prince Charles, walked her down the aisle after her father was unable to attend.

The ceremony started with a reading from the Song of Solomon from Princess Diana’s sister, Lady Jane Fellowes. Then, Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir sang a stirring rendition of “Stand By Me.” Bishop Michael Curry of Chicago gave a rousing sermon. During the exchange of vows, Markle followed in the footsteps of Kate Middleton and didn’t promise to ‘obey’ her groom, Prince Harry.
