Congratulations are in order for the daughter of the former Kiss demon, Gene Simmons. News has broken and has been shared throughout the social media world and we would like to share our congratulations. Sophie Simmons is now married – and the ceremony was conducted in her mother’s backyard.
As per People, Sophie Simmons is officially married! After the musician — the daughter of Kiss rocker, Gene Simmons, and actress Shannon Tweed-Simmons — and her longtime love, James Henderson, tied the knot at a Los Angeles courthouse on Friday, the pair exchanged vows in front of 50 friends and family members at her mother’s Malibu home on Feb. 22.
“We couldn’t be prouder of our daughter” Gene and Shannon tell People in a statement. “James is a solid young man, and Sophie can do anything she puts her mind to. We wish them a lifetime of love and happiness. If they are even half as happy as we are, they will last long.”
The day kicked off at 4:30 p.m., with guests arriving to drinks and light bites ahead of the ceremony. As the sun started to set, the main event began. Simmons walked down the aisle in a sparkling blush dress by Galia Lahav and Maria Elena Bridal headpiece to Band of Horses’ “No One’s Gonna Love You.”
“When my fiancé and I first started dating nine years ago, he took me to a Band of Horses concert,” says Simmons. “I was so tired from filming our reality show Shannon & Sophie back then, I fell asleep on his shoulder. We were way too early in the dating phase for me to do that. Luckily, he thought it was cute, and he woke me up for that one song.”
