Although Meadow couldn’t have her beloved father, Paul Walker, walk her down the aisle, his dear friend stepped in and made it a worthwhile experience.
In a clip shared on Meadow’s Instagram to announce her wedding to Louis Thorton-Allan, the 22-year-old was seen holding hands with Diesel as he prepared to walk her down the aisle in an oceanside ceremony.
The bond between the pair was evident as they posed for the camera and interacted with his two daughters, who were dressed up as part of the train.
Since the heartbreaking death of Meadow’s dad in 2013 after a devastating accident, Diesel, who shared a close relationship with him, has stepped in as a father figure for the young model.
The pair who first formed their friendship on the “Fast & Furious” set had a bond that transcended the screens. Diesel was even named Meadow’s godfather when she was born.
The ceremony was nothing short of a “Fast & Furious” affair as Diesel’s on-screen sister Jordana Brewster was present. An excerpt of the black-and-white clip showed Brewster hugging the blushing bride.
All About The Intimate Nuptials
According to reports, the small wedding was held in the Dominican Republic with mostly family and a few friends due to the pandemic. Unfortunately, Thorton-Allan’s family couldn’t be present.
In an interview with Vogue, Meadow explained that her husband’s family couldn’t travel down because of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Nevertheless, her fairytale destination wedding was a dream come true as she said:
We couldn’t have imagined it to be any more perfect and personal—and honestly it was easy and simple. Louis and I knew exactly what we wanted from the start. It was a very intimate celebration.
Meadow stole the spotlight in a custom Givenchy dress designed by her friend Matthew Williams, and she described it as a “timeless, chic, and elegant” piece.

The wedding ceremony was followed by a candle-lit dinner and a party on the beach. For the reception, the stunning bride rocked a Ludovic de Saint Sernin ensemble.
Days after the wedding in the Dominican Republic, Meadow and her actor husband returned to New York, where they reportedly had another celebration.
The lovely nuptials comes two months after the couple announced their engagement via a video on Instagram. The exact date Meadow and Thorton-Allan became husband and wife is unknown, but on October 11, she shared a photo of them rocking matching bands.
Congratulations to the couple!
