This is for all of the people who wanted to talk about Amber Tamblyn and David Cross’s wedding yesterday. All of these photos come from Questlove’s Instagram – he was at the wedding, and he captured some beautiful photos of the “wedding in the woods”. I’ve included some of the most interesting photos in this post, but you can see even more here, at Questlove’s page. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were there! Blake looked like she stepped out of a Ralph Lauren ad. And the bride wore YELLOW! And Amber was barefoot. It actually looked like a really pretty ceremony.
Amber Tamblyn is anything but traditional. When the House, M.D. alum, 29, married Arrested Development actor David Cross, 48, on October 6, the barefoot bride — who arrived via kayak! — wore a canary yellow dress. With flowers in her hair, Tamblyn vowed to spend eternity with Cross as guests including Amy Poehler, 41, Jason Ritter, 32, and Questlove, 41, looked on. (Us Weekly exclusively confirmed their betrothal October 7.)
Other A-list attendees included Tamblyn’s Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costars Blake Lively, 25, America Ferrera, 28, and Alexis Bledel, 30. Lively — who secretly married Ryan Reynolds, 35, in South Carolina September 9 — brought her husband as her date.
Questlove shared a series of pictures from Tamblyn and Cross’ wedding ceremony and reception via Instagram. In addition to snapshots of the bride and groom, The Roots musician also uploaded a picture of their unique dessert, a cheesecake featuring two fox cake toppers.
Yo La Tengo performed during the reception, while Questlove served as the deejay. This is the first marriage for both Tamblyn and Cross, who confirmed their engagement in August 2011.
Tamblyn next appears in the Quentin Tarantino film Django Unchained, in theaters December 25. The movie also stars Jamie Foxx, 44, Leonardo DiCaprio, 37, Kerry Washington, 35, and Samuel L. Jackson, 63. Cross is currently shooting new episodes of Arrested Development, which is being revived via Netflix.
A cheesecake wedding cake? That’s fine. I’m not a cheesecake person, but I’m simply happy when a couple decides to go with tradition enough to actually have a cake (side-eye at Natalie Portman). And I don’t mind that Amber wore yellow – her dress was pretty, and she looked really happy. Fingers crossed that everything works out for them in the long run!
