Jim Toth and Reese Witherspoon Wedding
March 26, 2011
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth were married on March 26, 2011.
The country-chic style wedding took place at Witherspoon’s seven-acre farm in Ojai, California.
Among the 120 guests at the early evening ceremony were Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Renee Zellweger, Sean Penn, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr. and Matthew McConaughey.
Witherspoon walked down the aisle in a blush-colored strapless Monique Lhuillier wedding dress with a Chantilly lace corset bodice and tulle A-line skirt.
She carried a bouquet of cream colored English garden roses wrapped in silk ribbon.
Toth wore a gray suit by Rag and Bone.
Witherspoon’s children, Ava and Deacon, stood beside the bride and groom at the altar wearing their own Monique Lhullier and Rag and Bone attire.
The couple recited their vows while standing in a bed of lavender sprigs underneath a rose-covered archway.
They exchanged wedding bands by William Goldberg during the twenty-minute ceremony officiated by Jimmy Bartz.
A reception followed planned by Yifat Oren and Associates which mixed Witherspoon’s Southern-upbringing with romance and rustic touches.
A tent was decorated with chandeliers, mason jars with candles and reclaimed wood furniture and centerpieces included wildflowers, lavender, sweet peas, cotton and rosemary.
The bride changed into a white silk mini dress by Lhuillier and danced the first dance with her husband to Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love.”
For a dinner, a farm-inspired meal by Lucques was served which included herb-roasted lamb and mustard grilled chicken.
For dessert, Erica O’Brien created a four-tiered white buttercream wedding cake with a lemon filling. A separate s’mores lounge was set up around a fire pit for guests to enjoy roasting marshmallows.
At the end of the evening, pizza and grilled cheese sandwiches were served and friends and family left with favors of Ojai honey and scones from the local Knead Baking Company.
Witherspoon and Toth honeymooned with her children in Belize.
