Alexandra Shipp had an emotional day at Vanessa Hudgens and Cole Tucker’s wedding.

The Barbie star, 32, who was one of Hudgens’ bridesmaids for the big event, shared her thoughts on the wedding ceremony — and noted that she didn’t have a dry eye during the ceremony.

"It was so beautiful," Shipp told Entertainment Tonight of the nuptials. "I cried the entire time."

She added that the couple “have the good stuff.” Though, she also joked that she wished she had what her longtime friend and fellow Tick, Tick… Boom! costar had.

"I was up there and I was like, 'Happy for her, and hate it for me,' " Shipp quipped.

When asked about her goals in “love” for 2023, Shipp suggested that she just had to “manifest it.” She added, "Whatever it's gonna be, it's gonna be." 

It appeared that Shipp wasn’t the only one trying to keep her emotions in check during the private ceremony held at the Azulik City of Arts in Tulum, Mexico, as Hudgens, 34, also recalled to Vogue that seeing Tucker at the altar “for the first time” was the “most emotional moment of my life.”

“I literally keeled over when I saw Cole and had to take a big breath and had to force myself to keep walking because I could have dropped to the floor," said Hudgens, who wore a slip dress with a plunging back by Vera Wang to mark the special occasion.

After the ceremony — which was officiated by Jay Shetty, who introduced the couple — Hudgens said she looked in the mirror and realized she'd cried most of her makeup off. She told the outlet that her makeup artist had to touch up her face before she headed off to take more wedding photos.

The pair initially met on a meditation Zoom hosted by Shetty in October 2020. Three years later in February 2023, they got engaged in Paris in front of the Eiffel Tower.

"It’s the most romantic city in the world,” Hudgens said of the proposal. “[But,] I was very surprised. I dropped a hint that that would be the ideal place, but kind of forgot about it because I didn’t want to have any expectations on the trip. I just wanted to enjoy it for what it was, and he caught me completely off guard.”

Like the engagement, she told Vogue that the wedding couldn’t have been even more perfect.

"Seeing that and bringing everyone together and celebrating us, it was just so magical,” she said. “Literally talking about it right now, I’m getting teary-eyed. I couldn’t have dreamt it to be any better. I knew it was going to be magical, but it exceeded my expectations.”
