The Voice alum Alisan Porter marries long time love Justin de Vera in intimate Las Vegas ceremony

Alisan Porter married her longtime partner Justin de Vera on Sunday in an intimate wedding at the Venus Garden Chapel at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas after six years of dating.

The couple exchanged handwritten vows during their ceremony, reports People magazine which also has exclusive photos. Alisan and Justin met as children more than two decades ago.

“I think for both Justin and me, we have been best friends for so long that this just feels like the next step,” she told People. “We’ve known each other for over 20 years. We’ve had an amazing six years together, raised incredible kids and had our own baby. So this is what we’ve been waiting for.”

The Voice season 10 winner is mom to kids Mason, 10, and Aria, 8, from a previous relationship, and she and Justin welcomed daughter Shilo, 17 months, in October 2021. The kids were included in the ceremony, entrusted with holding the rings.

Alisan wore shoes given to her by friend Adam Lambert

The Curly Sue star wore a Sau Lee gown, which she chose because it’s “classic and simple with just enough edge,” and completed the look with Versace shoes given to her by close friend Adam Lambert, who was one of 75 guests in attendance.

“Our wedding is very personal and very us,” she says. “We didn’t go for any kind of traditional anything — just what felt right to us.”

Alisan walked down the aisle to “Warm Under the Light” by Justin Nozuka, and was greeted at the end by Justin and their officiant Guy, a close friend of the couple’s who is also Shilo’s godfather.

“Guy was my grandmother’s godson and grew up dancing at her dance studio,” she says. “He is like a cousin to me. I introduced Justin to him at a dance competition when they were 12 or 13 and they have been best friends ever since.”

The couple got engaged last July at a David Gray concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

“We have been best friends since and always loved each other,” says Alisan. “I’m a bit older than J, but we both went and lived amazing lives until the universe brought us back together.” Alisan is 41 and her new husband, a dancer who toured with Madonna and Britney Spears, is 33.
