Admire: Hollywood Summer Weddings!

We all know summer is the most popular time for weddings, and Hollywood weddings are no exception! It has been a summer filled beautiful weddings (and some drool-worthy dresses!) for celebrity couples all over the world, so here are a few of our favorites:

Most Luxurious: Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson

This long time couple finally said “I do” at San Ysidro Ranch outside of Santa Barbara, California. With both of their young children and a bevy of celebrities, this twosome celebrated under thousands of lights, candles and flowers. And in a custom Carolina Herrera dress no less! The bride was inspired by her favorite film, the 1998 film version of “Great Expectations” (what a wild choice!), but alas, photos are limited. We highly recommend you go pick up that issue of People Magazine because the actual photos are gorgeous!

Most Out-There Dress Choice: It’s a tie! Piper Perabo AND Olivia Palermo

Both of these stylish ladies rocked very unique wedding day styles. Actress Piper Perabo stunned in a metallic silver, leopard print Michael Kors gown with a yellow veil (what a combo!) during her New Orleans nuptials to director Stephen Kay. Surprisingly, with the mishmash of textures and colors, it all seems to go together! On the other hand, while style maven Olivia Palermo looked very traditional in flowy white, she revealed that this Carolina Herrera confection was actually all about comfort–she’s wearing shorts! Hard to notice those while she’s standing next to one divinely handsome groom–Johannes Huebel!

Best Take on a Traditional Dress: Cheryl Hines

While she was marrying political royalty, Cheryl Hines went for a whimsical take on traditional! For marrying Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Hines donned a cocktail length Romona Keveza dress with strappy metallic sandals.

Best Reunion at a Wedding (and coolest cake): Dave Coulier

Weddings are always a reunion of some type–family, friends, classmates, the list goes on! But Dave Coulier can brag he had a mini Full House reunion at his Montana ranch wedding to Melissa Bring. Doesn’t John Stamos make quite the dreamy guest? To top it off, look at this unique wedding cake made by the maid-of-honor’s mom!

Best Surprise Wedding: Naya Rivera and Ryan Dorsey

Having only recently ended an engagement 3 months prior, actress Naya Rivera shocked Hollywood by announcing she had married long time friend, actor Ryan Dorsey, in an intimate beach side affair in Cabo san Lucas. But she did manage to find the time to get her hands on a stunning, lacy Monique Lhuillier gown!

Best Tennessee Wedding: Kimberly Perry & JP Arencibia

Hollywood even makes it way out to Tennessee, folks! Singer Kimberly Perry married baseball player JP Arencibia in Greeneville, the bride’s hometown. Celebrities such as Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton trekked over from Nashville for the fete.

Maybe the Cheesiest, but Most Hilarious Wedding Photo Ever: Jeff Goldblum & Emilie Livingston

Yes, every wedding does have its share of cheesy and staged photos. But to capitalize on his “Jurassic Park” fame, actor Jeff Goldblum raised the stakes with this awesome pic:

Admire: Hollywood Heads South!

As the East Coast continues to get hit with snow (even though spring did start this week!), celebs have made the smart decision to head south for their later winter-early spring nuptials. Here are a few of our favorite recent warmer-weather weddings!

Savannah Guthrie & Michael Feldman

Guthrie 1While many Americans wake up to see Savannah Guthrie on their TV screens every morning she managed to pull a fast one on everyone, surprising the country with her super-secret wedding on March 15. Guthrie and Feldman fled the New York freeze and married in Tuscon, Arizona–close to Guthrie’s hometown (yes, hometown weddings still exist!).

Guthrie stunned in a lace Monique Lhuillier gown and carried local wildflowers. A mariachi band serenaded the couple as they walked back down the aisle. While the guest count was only around 80 people, plenty of stars made the trip to Arizona (and managed to keep quiet about the whole thing!): co-anchor Matt Lauer, Al Roker, Hoda Kotb, and rocker Jon Bon Jovi. But Guthrie surprised her guests one more time, by revealing that the happy couple were also expecting!  Following the wedding, guests were also treated to a very special and intimate wedding favor: handwritten notes from the couple.

Stacy Keibler & Jared Pobre

Keibler 1

In another surprise wedding, TV host Stacy Keibler wed tech entrepreneur Jared Pobre in sunny Mexico on March 5th. The happy couple surprised their whole family by announcing during a joint-family vacation in Punta Mita that they had already planned for their nuptials to occur the next evening! Keibler and Pobre wed on the beach next to luxury villa Palmasola right at sunset with the bride donning a custom made Monique Lhuillier gown.

Congrats to both happy couples and we hope all of our readers are staying warm wherever they are!

 

Admire: Holiday Hollywood Weddings!

While summer is usually the most popular season for weddings, this past December and New Years’ is proving to be just as busy for Hollywood! Here are some highlights of a few beautiful weddings that closed out 2013 and ushered in 2014!

Kaley Cuoco & Ryan Sweeting

Hollywood’s most talked about NYE wedding was easily the union of Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting. Hosted at Hummingsbird Nest Ranch in Santa Sosana, California (a venue we are dying to work at!), Cuoco walked down the aisle in a custom Vera Wang pink gown fit for a princess! The theme of the evening was “Fire & Ice,” featuring crystal chandeliers, white roses and hydrangeas, and white tree branches covered in christmas lights. The prize-piece of the event? A fabulous, upside down chandelier cake. Kudos to Kaley for planning such a stunning event in only 3 months time!

Justin Bartha & Lia Smith

The Hangover actor and his longtime love tied the knot in Oahu, Hawaii on January 4, 2014.  The couple were married close to the water at sunset and were joined by Hollywood friends Reese Witherspoon, Jesse Eisenberg and Ken Jeong. The reception followed at Kualoa Ranch. Wedding photos have been sparse, but we love this shot of the couple shortly after the wedding as they show off the awesome studded flats sported by the bride!

Vanessa Carlton & John McCauley 

Of course being surrounded by family and close (celebrity) friends is a must for any Hollywood wedding, but how about having your wedding officiated by a celeb friend? Singer Vanessa Carlton and musician John McCauley did just that, having the incomparable Stevie Nicks officiate! The couple kept things low key, with the bride wearing a simple, long sleeved gown, holding a small bouquet, and donning a purple flower headpiece.
