New York, June 13 (ANI): Alec Baldwin Baldwin is planning a Catholic wedding with his yoga instructor fiancee, Hilaria Thomas, at a storied New York church in the weekend of June 30, according to reports.
The couple will tie the knot at the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral on Mulberry Street in NoLIta, a landmarked church built in about 1810.
The site has a Hollywood pedigree - it was where Francis Ford Coppola filmed the famous baptism scene in 'The Godfather,' in which Al Pacino's renunciation of Satan was intercut with the massacre of the Corleone family's enemies.
Martin Scorsese used the church's walled graveyard for a scene in his breakout film, 'Mean Streets,' and as a location in 'Gangs of New York'.
Pope Benedict XVI bestowed basilica status on the historic house of worship in 2010.
"This wasn't a quick decision. It took a lot of planning," the New York Post quote a source as saying of Baldwin's wedding date, explaining that baptismal certificates had to be produced, among various other documents.
It was previously believed that Baldwin and Mallorca-born Thomas could elope in Europe after the Cannes Film Festival, where he was shooting a movie with director James Toback.
It will be the first marriage for Thomas, 28, and the second for Baldwin, 54, who was earlier married to Kim Basinger for eight years before they split 2001.
The 'Rock of Ages' and '30 Rock' star and Thomas were engaged in early April on Long Island. They moved in together last August when Baldwin sold off his 9.5 million-dollar Central Park West co-op to live with Thomas in SoHo. (ANI)
