So technically Wednesday is already over, but I'd like to squeeze in a Wedding Wednesday post while it's still Wednesday here in California. ;)
How would you like to take a look at Reese Witherspoon's wedding photos?
I got the People magazine issue that features Reese's beautiful wedding photos... People, please don't get mad at me! We all love Reese, so I just wanted to share these pictures! ;)
Reese Witherspoon married Hollywood talent agent Jim Toth on March 26, 2011 at her Ojai, California ranch.
I love this photo! They look perfect for each other.
Although it may seem a bit too fast (they were only dating for a year), I love seeing Reese happy like that. :)
Her husband seems like a nice guy, and I don't think Reese would've married him if he wasn't.
***Jake Gyllenhaal, you're cute and all, but there was probably something wrong with you. Ryan Phillippe... eeeeee, let's not even go there.***
Anyways, let's get down to the wedding details!
Reese looked simply happy and beautiful!
I like how she wore her signature blonde hair -- it's very simple and laid-back, very Reese. Although I would probably want a nice updo or something, this look suits her very well. :)
And her bouquet is gorgeous!
A custom-designed, blush-colored Monique Lhuillier creation. It has a chantilly lace corset bodice, a full tulle A-line skirt, adorned with a double-face silk satin ribbon with cascading silk flowers that matched her daughter (and maid-of-honor), Ava's dress.
Cute little Deacon wore a three-piece suit that matches his step-dad's Rag&Bone suit.
Reese and Jim did not have bridesmaids or groomsmen -- it was just the two of them, Ava, and Deacon.
Other wedding details:
They said their vows under a rose-covered arch, while standing on a bed of fresh-cut lavender.
They danced their first dance to Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love".
To blend her Southern roots and her local Ojai home, they served orange mint juleps for cocktail hour.
LA's Lucques restaurant catered -- that cute card with the horses and their initials (seen below) was the dinner's menu. They served herb-roasted lamb with artichokes and mustard grilled chicken. And for dessert, a four-tiered buttercream wedding cake with lemon filling and a chocolate groom's cake. Oh, and they had a s'mores station! :)
They also served late-night snacks of pizza and grilled cheese sandwiches.
After the ceremony, guests headed to a tent hung with chandeliers made from reclaimed wood.
They had mason jars with twinkling candles inside.
Their centerpieces featured wildflowers, English garden roses, lavender, sweet peas, cotton, rosemary, and Queen Anne's lace -- set in vintage flea-market glassware and aged terracotta pots on dark wood farm tables decorated with cream-colored runners.
How beautiful and romantic does that sound?!
For the reception, Reese changed into another Lhuillier creation -- a white silk minidress with a corseted lace bodice, a hand-cut organza party skirt, and a jewel-encrusted belt.
Their guests left with a burlap sack filled with Ojai honey and warm pecan-current scones.
Who are those guests? Here are some of them:
It sounds and looks like such a beautiful wedding! I would love to have been invited! :D
What do you think of Reese Witherspoon's wedding? :D
