Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage tied the knot for the fifth time with Riko Shibata. The 57-year-old wed Riko in an intimate wedding ceremony at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas last month, with photos shared now by the reputed hotel. In a statement to the media, Cage said, "It's true, and we are very happy." The couple entered wedlock on February 16, with the date being chosen by Cage to honor his father's birthday. "The date was chosen to honour the birthday of the groom's late father. The bride wore a handmade Japanese Bridal Kimono from Kyoto that required three layers," a report on the People stated. 

Riko Shibata was seen wearing a black handmade Japanese Bridal Kimono, while Nicolas Cage had worn a black Tom Ford Tuxedo, which he complimented with a yellow rose buttonhole, with the couple also holding a bouquet. The couple had first met in Japan more than a year back and exchanged traditional Catholic and Shinto vows with poetry from Walt Whitman and Haiku during their wedding ceremony. The wedding also saw Nicolas' third wife Alice Kim and their son Kal gracing the occasion. Cage's wedding to Shibata is his fifth overall after he had asked for an annulment of his four-day marriage with his fourth wife, Erika Kooike, in March 2019, which as well took place in Las Vegas. Cage was previously married to Patricia Arquette (1995 to 2001) and Lisa Marie Presley (2002 to 2004). He also shares a son Weston, 30, with actor Christina Fulton.
