Virginal Reese Witherspoon Marries Jim Toth: Horses Nuzzle
For purposes of identification, Reese is the divorcee marrying in white. She may have had the seamstress complete the virginal look by placing a few stitches in her bottom drawers.
Rustic Romantic turns out not to be an idyllic country church in the Romanian hinterlands, but a massive, new-build shiny house in California.
We get to know that Rees’s children Ava and Deacon (the latter’s name a clear nod to her youthful dad’s spent watching Blue Peter) carried rings.
We see mum arrive, her face beneath a “cathedral-length veil” and silken-wrapped feet walking on a “bed of fresh-cut lavender”.
We look to the faces. We see Matthew McConaughey, Tobey Maguire, Robert Downey Junior, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sacha Baron Cohen, Sean Penn, Kate Hudson and Renee Zellweger.
The guests mingle under a tent hung with chandeliers made from reclaimed wood and hundreds of mason jars and twinkling candles inside.
Flowers sat in “vintage flea-market glassware and aged terracotta pots on dark wood frame tables decorated with cream-coloured runners.”
Then, after cocktails, Reese reappears dressed in a “hand-cut organza party skirt and a jewel-encrusted belt”. Think Barbie 1986.
They then dine on herb-roasted lamb with artichokes and mustard-grilled chicken. In a “tender touch, the printed menus were topped with a drawing of two horses nuzzling and the couple’s initials.”
Later, guests got pizza and grilled cheese sandwiches.
At midnight, guests went home with bags of scones and honey.
And that is all…
