Reese & Jim’s Down Home Delight

On March 26th at her Ojai, California ranch, Reese Witherspoon followed her two children, Ava and Deacon, down the aisle on her father’s arm to meet her loving groom, talent agent Jim Toth atop a bed of fragrant lavender.  The foursome looked stunning, with Jim and Deacon in dapper gray suits by Rag & Bone and Reese and Ava in soft blush gowns which were custom made by Monique Lhuillier.  The ceremony was set to the strum of a bluegrass band that played the traditional bridal march in addition to twangier tunes such as “Tennessee Waltz” and “Keep on the Sunny Side of Life.”

The reception, planned by Yifat Oren, was described by a guest to be “down-to-earth and beautiful.”  From the wooden farm tables topped with cream runners and wildflowers to the flickering glow of candles in mason jars, there was plenty of country charm to be found.  The menu included down-on-the-farm favorites as well as Orange Mint Juleps, which gave a nod to local Ojai citrus and Reese’s Southern roots.  Keeping in line with the down-home feel, dessert included s’mores and late night snacks included pizza and grilled cheese.

Though plenty of a-listers were present, Reese and Jim’s celebration remained simple and sweet without the fussiness that is soften a trademark of Hollywood weddings.

New Year’s Nuptials

What better way to ring in the New Year than with a wedding?  This year, plenty of celebrity couples chose to tie the knot during the New Year’s holiday.  Here are four couples who kicked off the year with brand new marriages and my take on their wedding day style.

Shania Twain and her husband, Frederic, looked lovely together at their New Year's Day celebration. Their black and white outfits suited each other perfectly. Shania's gown, bought at a small Swiss boutique, was simple and elegant and her long veil added glamour to the ensemble. -- Image courtesy of People magazine

NASCAR driver Kyle Busch and new wife, Samantha Sarcinella, had a lavish New Year's affair. Though this picture only shows the top half of Samantha's Michael Cinco dress, in my mind that is the better half! The neckline on this dress was elegant and sophisticated and is my absolute favorite of the four New Year's gowns I'm showing here. The feathered skirt took away from the stunning bodice. -- Image courtesy of Celebrity Bride Guide

Valerie Bertinelli and Tom Vitale invited friends over on New Year's Day for a surprise wedding ceremony! After stating plans to wear black last year, Valerie instead selected a turquoise David Meister gown. I must admit, I was somewhat upset with her decision. The look doesn't do her fabulous figure justice and looked sort of slapped together. Her Jimmy Choo shoes, while amazing in their own right, didn't suit the ensemble well, in my opinion. --- Image courtesy of People Magazine


Kellie Pickler and husband, Kyle Jacobs, eloped on New Year's to celebrate their love with a beautiful, intimate beachside ceremony. Kellie's Badgley Mischka ballgown suited her figure perfectly and Kyle's laidback attire was just right for a beach wedding! --- Image courtesy of tkatla.com
