The widow of late actor Lance Reddick enjoyed a quiet and humble life with the Hollywood star for nearly 25 years before his tragic death at the age of 60.
Their simple 2011 wedding in Minnesota symbolized their modest lifestyle, which came more than 12 years after they met when he was acting at a theater where she worked.
Despite starring in several blockbusters, the most recent being John Wick 4, Riddick seems to be enjoying an unassuming relationship with his wife.
While his teammates splashed out in lavish celebrations, Stephanie insisted on just two rules. She said, “One of them is that everyone should have fun.” MspMag.
The other is that Lance couldn’t see my dress before I walked down the aisle. That was it.’
Lance Reddick and his wife, Stephanie, tied the knot in 2011, more than a decade after they first met. They were photographed together at the premiere of White House Down in 2013
The couple first met at Minnesota’s Gurtrie Playhouse in 1999, where Stephanie worked while Lance was acting in a play.
Stephanie, who was Lance’s second wife, shared two children with late actor Yvonne and Christopher.
She’s made numerous red carpet appearances over the years as her husband has starred in hits including White House Down, The Blacklist, and Godzilla vs Kong.
While spending most of their days in their upscale $2.5 million mansion in Los Angeles, the couple decided to tie the knot in Minnesota to pay tribute to their humble roots.
After offloading a lavish Hollywood party, they chose the Midwestern state because their first encounter was in 1999 while Stephanie was working on the set of the Guarthurie Theatre.
Opting for an intimate ceremony among close friends, Stefani’s low-key approach was on full display as she detailed her choice of floral arrangements and dress.
“I told[the florist]I didn’t care what the flowers were like as long as they were beautiful,” Stephanie said.
I suggested peonies, because they were in season at the time. I didn’t even know what color the flowers were until the wedding day, and they turned out to be absolutely beautiful.
After insisting that Riddick couldn’t see her dress before the big day, his Hollywood fortune was set aside as she later admitted: “I found it online for $250, including shipping.”
Lance picked it up at the post office, and it fit just right. My favorite moment on the wedding day was when my mom saw me in my dress and started crying.
Lance landed a role in her theater five years after earning her MFA from the Yale School of Drama.
His breakout performance came in 2001 after he was cast in The Wire, and he would go on to appear in all 60 episodes alongside stars including Dominic West and Idris Elba.
But throughout his time as a Hollywood star, Lance has managed to keep his family life private.

Tributes poured in on the actor after news of his tragic death, which came while he was in the middle of a promotional tour for the final chapter in the John Wick franchise.
Guardians of the Galaxy actor James Gunn said: “Lance Reddick was an incredibly nice guy, and an incredibly talented actor.
This is heartbreaking. My love extends to all of his family, friends and collaborators.
‘A man of great strength and grace,’ added Wendell Pierce, his co-star on The Wire.
A talented musician, he was also an actor. Class example. A sudden, sharp, sudden sadness for our artistic family.
Unimaginable suffering for his family and loved ones. Good luck my friend. You left your mark here. to cut’
