Top 5 Celebrity Weddings of 2012

At Pedestals Floral Decorators our designs are influenced by many things: classic styles, current trends, art, pop culture and of course celebrity weddings. We have been fortunate to design a number of celebrity weddings, most recently Danielle & Kevin Jonas at Oheka Castle.

We are going to take a look back at our picks for the top 5 celebrity weddings of 2012. Our staff chose these celebrity couples for a variety of reasons. We hope your favorites made our list.

#5 Drew Barrymore & Will Kopelman
Date: June 2
Where: Montecito, California
Notable guests: Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Jimmy Fallon, Scarlett Johansson
Gown: Chanel

Sure this wedding had the A-list star power, but we selected this wedding because as so many time in the past. Drew is on trend in so many ways. She wore vintage lace and used pink flowers. Pinks, blushes and neutral tones will continue to be strong looks for 2013 as vintage inspired weddings are more popular than ever.

#4 Anne Hathaway & Adam Shulmam
Date: September 29
Where: Big Sur, California
Gown: Valentino

No, we did not select them because of her flawless custom Valentino gown or their reported $100,000 flower budget or because of all the Oscar buzz Anne is receiving for her work in Les Miserables. We chose this couple because of how they used their wedding to work towards a greater good. Every time a picture from their wedding is licensed a portion of the proceeds will be used to support Freedom to Marry , a pro-gay marriage campaign and other non-profit organizations.

#3 Cynthia Nixon & Christina Marinoni
Date: September 19
Where: New York
Gown: Carolina Herrera

It’s Miranda! It’s a Green Dress! It’s about time (thank you Governor Cuomo)

#2 Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds
Date: September 9
Where: Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
Gown: Marchesa

For 2 of the hottest people on the planet they kept their wedding very private. Then the picture they released allowed you to imagine their wedding anyway you wanted… it was a fill in your own fantasy moment. It gave just a glimpse of Blake’s custom Marchesa gown and Ryan’s wedding band. All the other details you were free to picture any way you wanted. (Some pictures were later released in Martha Stewart Weddings, and since Blake is an avid baker many of these pictures featured the couples amazing dessert bar)

#1 Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake
Date: October 19
Where: Puglia Italy
Gown: Giambattista Valli haute couture

This wedding had it all. It was held at an unbelievable super-luxury Italian resort setting at the super luxury Egnazia Celebrity guests including Adam Samberg and Jimmy Fallon a lavish weekend & custom men and fireworks. All of this plus Jessica’s show-stopping Giambattista haute couture gown in Pink!

Justin sang Jessica down the aisle with an original song. Featuring a special skill or talent in your wedding is something we highly recommend. It will create a magic moments that only you can provide.

Oh dress! Love it or hate it Jessica was not following any trends. She was following her own style.
Between Justin’s song and that unforgettable pink dress the choice was easy Jessica & Justin made it personal and any of Pedestals brides & grooms can do just that and that’s why they were any easy choice for our favorite celebrity wedding for 2012.
