Stop us if this sounds familiar. A doyenne of New York City fashion pops into City Hall with her longtime beau to get hitched. This time, though, it's not Carrie Bradshaw saying "I do" — it's style star Olivia Palermo. Well, maybe.
Sources tell Page Six that Palermo and German model Johannes Huebl tied the knot in a low-key ceremony at Manhattan's City Hall last Saturday. Though the couple has planned to wed in St. Barts in the fall, visa issues allegedly prompted them to speed things up.
"They were planning a big wedding in the fall, but Johannes left Wilhelmina Models last year, and he currently isn’t with an agency, and was told he would have to leave the U.S. in September," a source revealed to the gossip column.
“Olivia’s friends were surprised when they got married at City Hall on Saturday, with the only guests being his friend Ulli Saeuberlich and her parents, who weren’t happy with the rush, but decided to be there at the last minute.”
Here's the catch. According to its website, the marriage bureau is closed on Saturdays. Huebl's Instagram feed shows the couple having a seemingly relaxed weekend outside of the city, with a snap of Palermo riding a bike. Alas, they each have their left hands obscured, so there's no telling if they're wearing wedding bands or not.
Finally, Palermo's spokeswoman, Barbara Saint-Aime, denied that any wedding took place. She did confirm, however, that the lovebirds will have a civil wedding this month before hosting a bigger ceremony.
"They had always planned to have a small civil wedding in June," she to the paper. "The whole visa thing is not relevant. They have been together for six-and-a-half years, they got engaged this past January. They travel so much during the summer, they really don’t have much time to plan things. They are not married yet. They are doing a much smaller civil ceremony in the States this month and they are planning to do something much larger later on.”
This month (June) ends on Monday, so she could mean this weekend. The truth is bound to come out at some point. But, honestly, don't people really just care about the dress? (Page Six)
