Comedian and “Talking Dead” host Chris Hardwick has married his actress fiancé Lydia Hearst on Saturday in Pasadena, says an exclusive report on People magazine’s website.
Hardwick, 44, and Hearst, 31, were married before an estimated 450 guests at the Langham Huntington in Pasadena in an elaborate ceremony managed by Beverly Hills wedding planner Mindy Weiss.
The bride wore a custom-designed Christian Siriano gown while Hardwick donned a custom Prada suit.
People magazine said florist Mark Held drew inspiration from the couple’s favorite science fiction and comic book series, and made sure red roses, Tardis blue hydrangea and Vanda orchids added a unique touch to the nuptials.
At the reception, guests dined on an elaborate four-course meal, which included thai spiced prawns, arugula salad, Chilean sea bass, beef filet and of course, their wedding cake, the People report said.
Just before the wedding, Hearst said she expects to be “blissfully happy” after the couple’s big day.
“I could never have envisioned a more perfect wedding day,” she told People. “It’s better and more magical than I could have ever dreamed It’s going to be perfect, and even if it isn’t that’s how it was meant to be. I’m more excited than anything else!”
On Friday, Hardwick shared a snap from the couple’s wedding rehearsal, captioning it “Wedding rehearsal! #AllTheEmoji.” The photo was taken by his bride’s mother, Patricia Hearst.
Hardwick proposed to Hearst on September 13, 2015, says People, with a ring passed down by Hearst’s grandmother.
It was the night of the Emmys.
Last Friday, he went on Facebook and explained his and Hearst’s request about wedding gifts.
“WE’RE GETTING MARRIED TOMORROW!!!” Hardwick wrote. “Thank you for all your well-wishes and wonderful words lately! Some of you have even gone so far as to ask where we’re registered (which is very sweet) so I’m sharing this…@lydiahearst and I are incredibly fortunate people and didn’t feel right taking gifts from anyone so our wedding registry instead is a menu of five wonderful charities that we asked our guests to pick any or all of to make a donation toward: St Jude Children’s Research Hospital (@stjude), Operation Smile (@operationsmile), GLAAD (@glaad), Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (@egpaf) & Best Friends Animal Society (@bestfriendsanimalsociety). If you’re feeling generous and able, this support of others is the best way to support us on our magical day! No matter what, we appreciate you!!!”
