We all know that summer is one of the best and most popular time for weddings – and that notion goes not just for us mere mortals, but for celebrities too! But now that most of summer has slipped by, we are going to do a condensed round-up of our summer celebrity favorites.
Jimmy Kimmel & Molly McNearney
Funny-man Jimmy Kimmel married longtime girlfriend, and comedic writer, Molly McNearney at a beautiful estate in Ojai. While details have been sparse, the number of celebs in attendance was not! From Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner to Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, this guest was a who’s who of Hollywood! What we loved? That the couple stayed close to their humorous roots—the bride had good friend, actress Gabourey Sidibe, walk down the aisle in full bridal-gear before she did! Why not start your marriage off with a good laugh?
Keira Knightley & James Righton
The beautiful British bride married Klaxons keyboardist James Righton in a small, private ceremony in the south of France this past May. The fashionista shocked the wedding world when she sported a short, strapless tulle dress with flats, a cropped jacket, and a daisy-chain garland in her hair—all from Chanel, of course. But we loved that Keira stayed true to herself and kept her wedding attire comfortable, yet stylish. Even Karl Lagerfield deemed the dress, and the day, to be “perfect.”
Aaron Paul & Lauren Parsekian
Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul isn’t so bad after all! Paul married girlfriend, activist Lauren Parsekian, at Calamigos Ranch in May. The couple had a carnival-themed wedding, which featured a Ferris wheel, mimes, and magic by David Blaine. We loved that the groom made sure nearly every guest was involved, from having John Mayer serenade the bride with “Daughters” as she walked down the aisle, to having the entire audience sing along to a favorite song during the recessional. Way to keep the focus on your beautiful bride!
Celebrity weddings are an amazing resource for inspiration, which is why CLD is now going to feature our favorite celebrity weddings here on the blog at least once a month. We’d love to point out some of our favorite trends and styles, as well as some cool things that any couple can feature for their own fabulous day. We hope you enjoy!
