3/31/2010 – Update…Reese Witherspoon wore a PINK wedding dress, can’t wait to discover photos of this one. I don’t think the designer has even ever made a pink one in her past.
After all of these weddings in movies Reese finally broke down and did the real deal this past weekend. Jim Toth, 40 & Reese Witherspoon, 35, who became engaged in December, tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony at Witherspoon’s ranch estate in Ojai, Calif. Wish I had a private estate for times like this 🙂
A pre-wedding cocktail hour took place before the 20-minute ceremony, which started a bit late, as most celebrity weddings do. Witherspoon walked down the aisle to “Here Comes the Bride.” Monique Lhuillier designed Reese Witherspoon’s wedding dress as seen below.
Those in attendance included Witherspoon’s children (with her first husband Ryan Phillippe), Ava, 11 and Deacon, 7, as well as 120 guests — including Renee Zellweger, Isla Fisher, Matthew McConaughey and other stars — looked on as Witherspoon swapped vows with CAA agent Toth, 40, in a 20-minute ceremony in front of her rustic country home. A few photographers were blinded by her 4 carat engagment ring during the ceremony (just kidding). Her Jimmy Choo wedding shoes I’m sure wowed the crowd as you can see below:
A bluegrass band played during the service. Decor details of the country-themed soiree: Lanterns and chandeliers hanging from trees, mismatched antique chairs and distressed benches set throughout the property, a wood plank dance floor, antique leather sofas, jute rugs, wago wheels and Turkish textile pillows.
After the meal, guests boogied on the dance floor to DJ-spun tunes. When it was time to call it a night, drunken wedding goers departed clutching gift bags with pecan currant scones from a local baker. I doubt the scones were as good as the ones from our local church….of course they only cost about 50 cents. You can’t beat 50 cent scones that are fresh.
Here’s a possible inspiration for Reese Witherspoon’s wedding dress from Monique Lhuillier? Is it close to the real one?

Tom joined the company as CEO, to turn Monique’s vision to establish a couture design house into reality.
