It seems clear that their love is real. It comes as no surprise that the two ended up getting married. Silva has fond memories of when Richard popped the question: “This was really a private moment, just for the two of us, but what I can tell you is that he asked me to marry him in the most romantic hotel I’ve ever been to, in St. Paul de Vence, on my birthday. I get emotional just remembering it.”
Richard is going about this the right way: a relationship is not a public event.
Against All Odds
Silva has said that Richard still has plenty of energy and is, in all likelihood, much more active than her. She has to work hard to keep up with him, according to her. Is Richard Gere even human?
How could a man in his seventies look so good and be so active? Those close to the couple report they are very much in love. Silva has commented that he knows she loves him madly. “I think I bring him stability. Above all, it helped I wasn't an actress or a model. I never had any interest in that.”
Her Undeniable Love
Silva doesn't seem to want to stop heaping praise on her man. She does seem to love him:
“He is the most humble, sensitive, affectionate, attentive, funny, generous man that I've ever met. What can I say? I'm so in love! How would you feel if each morning you were asked, 'What would make you happy today?' Not a day goes by that he doesn't mention how important I am to him. I feel very lucky.”
Happily Ever After
The marriage between these two sweethearts came in April 2018, and the fairytale wedding is another one of Silva's favorite memories. They held the event at Richard's ranch in New York state. Silva reported that she felt like the luckiest woman alive.
The couple did everything they could to make the event something spectacular for themselves and all of their guests. They wanted something both exotic and opulent for their big day, and Silva reported she did feel like she was in a fairytale.
Out of a Fairytale
The couple put in tons of work to get the ranch looking like something out of Indian myths. They brought in tents from Jaipur, an Indian state capital, and adorned the entire area with a mixture of colorful flowers and Tibetan prayer flags.
Their family and close friends arrived several days – up to a week – beforehand, so there was plenty of time and help for getting everything prepared. However, one of the significant additions was transportation to take the guests to the wedding.
