Today in Things That Make Me Emotional: Meadow Walker just posted new photos from her wedding to Louis Thornton-Allan…and in the process revealed that her late father Paul Walker’s The Fast and the Furious co-star Vin Diesel was the one who walked her down the aisle. SOB.
As Vogue previously reported, the model wore a custom Givenchy gown for the beachside ceremony held in the Dominican Republic. “We couldn’t have imagined it to be any more perfect and personal—and honestly it was easy and simple,” Walker told the magazine. Louis and I knew exactly what we wanted from the start. It was a very intimate celebration.”

Diesel, for his part, showed up in a powder blue suit and sunglasses that feel befitting for the man behind Dominic Toretto, his Fast and Furious character. Diesel is Walker’s godfather and has clearly stayed close with her since her father’s death in 2013. In 2015, he also revealed that he had named his daughter Pauline after his late co-star. “There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord,” he said at the time of Walker. “I just thought…knew he was there. It felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world.”
Vin Diesel wasn’t the only Fast & Furious cast members in attendance either. Jordan Brewster, Walker’s on-screen love interest in the franchise, also posted a photo from the day to Instagram. “I’m so happy for you beauty,” she wrote in the caption. (See that photo here.)
