I thought you’d enjoy some candid shots from this morning’s Today show wedding. Though I was certainly nervous (many, many times in the past few weeks!), it went even better than I could have hoped. Jessica and Cody are off to Seychelles tomorrow; the rest of us will be enjoying some well-deserved down time!
Jessica took a break from getting her hair and makeup done to pose with her mother (on the left) and Martha.
The guests filed on to the set well before sunrise.
Jessica’s mother walked her down the aisle. (Jess later insisted that she stumbled, but I certainly didn’t notice!)
Cody and Jessica were married by the priest from Jessica’s childhood church.
The favor boxes each held a DVD of Breakfast at Tiffany’s (our inspiration for the wedding), a bottle of Sterling Vineyards wine (Cody and Jessica’s favorite!), a Martha Stewart Crafts photo album, frosted cookies by Eleni's, and Cracker Jacks (also a nod to the movie).
Each place was set with Mehlenbacher’s salt water taffy, a favorite of Jessica’s—she grew up on the beach.
I paused to pose with Martha, Deputy Style Editor Randi Brookman-Harris, and Senior Associate Style Editor Katie Berry before the reception began.
The bridesmaids posed with a flower girl and a ring bearer outside Tiffany.
A flower girl and ring bearer took advantage of the props (inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s) at the sign-in table, which also held Polaroid cameras.
Our crew also stopped by the sign-in-table! From left, writer Kimberly Fusaro, stylist Kristi Blunt, Special Projects Editor Anthony Luscia, me, and Katie Berry.
Martha couldn’t resist the props, either!
Cody and Jessica (check out her adorable Larissa Barrera bag!) got a few minutes to enjoy the meal. (Caterer Peter Callahan woke up at 4:30 a.m. to have everything ready in time!)
The couple left Tiffany to applause from the staff and customers.
Our photoshoot afterwards stopped traffic on Fifth Avenue.
