The details are FINALLY out! If you love The Hills & Laguna Beach star as much as we do then we know you’ve been dying to learn the details of Lauren Conrad’s September 13th wedding. Well wait no more! After scouring the internet and magazines for weeks, we’ve got all the details here.
Lauren Conrad and now hubby, William Tell, celebrated with 230 of their closest family and friends in their Santa Ynaz, California vineyard wedding. Of course, as we could have all expected, LC was sure to be fashionable on her big day with a custom-made two-tone ivory Chantily lace, Badgley Mischka gown that featured a remarkable 10-foot train. Expecting nothing less from this entrepreneur and lifestyle blogger, Conrad made sure to stun guests in not only one but two amazing dresses. Conrad changed into a strapless Monique Lhullier gown featuring a mermaid silhouette, making it easier to party the night away with her guests.
Reception décor was inspired by a brass apple Conrad spotted at a flea market, just weeks before William Tell’s October proposal. Falling in love with the apples & arrows theme, Conrad baked 50 homemade apple pies and provided 100 vintage handkerchiefs as a personal touch on their wedding day. Bridesmaid and NYC based wedding planner, Cassandra Herschenfeld, made sure the creative bride-to-be didn’t go over board with her DIY projects. When Lauren wanted to arrange her own wedding flowers, Herschenfeld responded with a “no chance”. Conrad, keeping in mind what was most important on her wedding day gave in stating, “It’s important to just enjoy the day and what it represents, my excitement to marry William!”
Event the rich and famous run into wedding drama, Lauren reminds us. Not only had they originally planned on a destination wedding, but they also ended up having to bring everything onto their reception site, from a kitchen, to restrooms, to a tent. Lucky for Conrad, Herschenfeld had it all under control.
And the groom? In typical groom fashion, William Tell says he let Conrad handle the details. Tell, lawyer and former musician, did hire the reception band, Elan Artis’ Ground Countrol, stating “I wanted a band that plays weddings and knows how to get grandmas dancing.” The other most important thing for the hubby-to-be? The food of course! Tell insisted on adding a beef tenderloin option to the menu when his fiancée had chosen black striped bass and Tuscan roasted chicken.
Happily Ever After began at 4pm as guests were greeted outside the ceremony tent by wait staff offering the two signature drinks of the evening - Ketel One-spiked lemonade and a brandy-and-hard cider concoction dubbed, Apple of My Eye. While guests enjoyed a cocktail, they watched Tell’s longtime friend Casey Scharetg lead a short nondenominational ceremony. The couple wrote their own vows with Tell admitting he was so nervous that “nothing was going to be good enough”.
Now, the newlyweds are enjoying their two week Mediterranean honeymoon doing absolutely nothing but living happily ever after. Congratulations, Lauren & William!
