‘N Sync reunites (again) at Chris Kirkpatrick’s Orlando wedding
Just when we thought it would be ages before the next ‘N Sync reunion, Chris Kirkpatrick reunited the men of the hit boy band at his wedding.
The former pop star, 42, wed fiancee Karly Skladany, 29, on Saturday at the Loews resort hotel in Orlando, Fla., People and Us Weekly reported.
“Great weekend with old friends and family! Happiest time of my life! #offthemarket,” Kirkpatrick tweeted Monday, adding, “Best wedding advice from JT, and then partied til 3 am singing with Joey and Karly, #cloudnine”
The bride wore a strapless dress with a trumpet skirt and married Kirkpatrick under a gazebo in the Citrus Piazza.
“Chris and Karly held hands during the ceremony and kept their eyes locked on each other,” a source told Us. “There was so much love between them and they looked ecstatic to be saying their vows and calling each other husband and wife.”
Kirkpatrick proposed to his now-wife in October 2012 while they were vacationing in Capri, Italy — the same month frontman Justin Timberlake married Jessica Biel in Southern Italy.
But back to the good stuff.
The newlyweds were joined by Kirkpatrick’s former bandmates — Timberlake, 32, J.C. Chasez, 37, Lance Bass, 34, and Joey Fatone, 36 — who served as ushers and groomsmen at the affair. He wanted them back, indeed!
“What a night!! Great to be together again for such a beautiful day. Congrats to @IamCKirkpatrick and his new bride Karly, love you bro!!” said a tweet from the band’s official Twitter account.
The band last reunited at the August MTV Video Music Awards during Timberlake’s 15-minute medley for the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
The guys tore up our hearts in coordinated outfits back then and donned matching ensembles once again for the weekend occasion. They wore black suits from Men’s Wearhouse and rose boutonnieres, Us Weekly reported, a fact that amused Bass.
“He got us the cheapest tuxes there he could possibly get, which I think is so Chris and very lovely. I mean that’s just who he is,” he said of the “Suit & Tie” singer on his Dirty Pop Sirius XM show last month. “I think it’s hilarious to know that Justin Timberlake is going to be in a Men’s Warehouse tux ushering the wedding.”
However, Bass did share a photo of the “fun socks” he wore for his friend’s wedding day.
“Big day for @IamCKirkpatrick love is a beautiful thing to witness,” tweeted Chasez.
Timberlake was joined by Biel at the wedding, and she, the former band and the newlyweds even posed for a photo together.
What’s ironic is that none of the guys were invited to Timberlake and Biel’s Italian nuptials, because Timberlake “thought a reunion would overshadow the wedding,” a source told Us at the time.
And so it did. Sorry, Karly.
