They did. Now they party.
Just two weeks after Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell made it official and swapped vows in London, the couple did their best to put the par-tay back in their wedding party, throwing a second celebration in New York Friday night for all their Yank friends who couldn't make it across the pond for their original ceremony.
And it would appear that most of those friends were of the bold-named variety. Starting with his most famous former frenemy...
Yoko Ono! What's past is past, as they proved when they walked the red carpet together earlier this month. John Lennon's widow was among those pals who came out to the Bowery Hotel to help celebrate the nuptials of the loved-up former Beatle and his new (previously) NYC-based missus.
She was joined by quite an eclectic guest list that was a far cry from the intimate gathering just a few weeks back: her son Sean Lennon, fellow rockers Joe Walsh and Keith Richards, the latter of whom was joined by wife Patti Hansen, Ralph Lauren and wife Ricky, David Lauren and Lauren Lauren Bush, Aida Turturro, Jon Bon Jovi, head Foo Fighter Dave Grohl, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Steve Buscemi and James Taylor.
Also along for the celebration, naturally, was Shevell's second cousin Barbara Walters, who was also present for couple's wedding in London (and who will no doubt take advantage of her RSVP by informing her loyal View watchers of all the goings-on this morning).
The revelers reportedly gathered in one of the hotel's private rooms, where they dined on strictly vegetarian cuisine, of course, and, by most accounts, an unceasing flow of champagne.
McCartney and Shevell themselves, at 69 and 51 years young, respectively, left the party at 1:30 a.m., where they were greeted by a crowd of well-wishers. Congrats!
