Richard Gere and new wife Alejandra Silva celebrate wedding with star-studded party

Richard Gere and new wife Alejandra Silva continue to celebrate their secret wedding!

The 68-year-old actor secretly wed the Spanish publicist, 35, "weeks and weeks ago" in a low-key civil ceremony, and the couple threw a lavish wedding bash over the weekend at Gere's estate in Pound Ridge, New York, to officially celebrate their union.

Guests at the soirée reportedly included chef Eric Ripert, composer Bette Sussman, actress Saundra Santiago and several Tibetan monks. Gere is a known Buddhist, and Silva reportedly converted to the religion once she became serious with the "Pretty Woman" actor.
