I’d be lying to you if I said I didn’t spend the greater part of my Sunday in bed, pouring over all of the magazines that featured inside info about fashion designer and reality star, Lauren Conrad, and her wedding with the sexy-musician-lawyer, William Tell.
Why am I so obsessed? Honestly, I’ve always been a little fascinated by Conrad, she’s remained to be pretty down-to-earth despite all the fame from the MTV show. She’s got grace, class, and a touch of style that I kind of die for. As far as her love life, I feel she’s a kindred spirit — she’s dated an alcoholic, she’s swooned over her high school crush, she’s had the heartbreaks, and in the end, she found a great guy.
It gives me hope. And as sad as it sounds, that’s something I always need — reminders that he’s out there, somewhere.
And superficially, let’s just say it: we all knew her wedding was going to be fab-u-lous.
Before the wedding, LC released a few pictures on her Instagram account — a picture of her engagement ring (simple, elegant, thin yellow-gold band with a princess-cut white diamond), and a picture from her bridal luncheon (complete with embossed cocktail napkins that said, in gold, “Almost Mrs. Tell).
She was also featured on the cover of Martha Stewart Weddings (Fall 2014, the style issue), along with three of her bridesmaids. Inside the mag, she says she designed a line of Paper Crown (her upscale line) bridesmaids dresses that really are dresses meant to be re-worn. She let her bridesmaids pick the dress they wanted, and they could choose from two colors, in order to keep things coordinated, but not so exact.
Other facts about the wedding:
- The ceremony took place at a winery in Santa Ynez Valley, California
- Her ceremony dress was a custom Badgley Mischka couture gown (white, with long train, all lace, with small crystals, beads, and pearls)
- Her reception dress was Monique Lhuillier
- She asked her bridesmaids to be in the wedding by sending them custom necklaces (made by her jewelry team at Kohl’s) along with cards… because of course
- Tell wore a Jonathan Behr tuxedo and bow tie
- 230 guests attended
Le sigh. Love it all!
