I know that Emmy Rossum is not controversial in the least, but that’s why I like her. She had what sounds like an amazing wedding to Sam Esmail the last weekend in May, but she didn’t hypermanage it (like I would have done) and she wore just one incredible dress, designed by Carolina Herrera. Her reception was at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, but she didn’t change out of her wedding dress to a reception dress and instead kept it low key and fun. Judging by the photos on social media, a good time was had by all. Now we have photos of the cake too, and it was a very simple tiered white wedding cake. I know that Emmy said that she designed her dress in conjunction with Herrera to mimic the clean architectural lines of the Guggenheim, and it looks like her cake was designed with that in mind too. Check out this cake! I love how simple and elegant it is. This is from an Instagram story by actor Nyambi Nyambi. You have to click the arrows to the right of the photo to scroll through. Look at how they look at each other during their first dance, they are so in love.
Emmy is a rare celebrity I’m actually happy and rooting for instead of feeling any level of jealousy about, except that may have changed now that I’m seeing photos from her honeymoon, on photo safari in Rwanda. I just looked up tours for that and found this website for a touring company endorsed by the World Wildlife Foundation that promises you can “sit with a family of wild mountain gorillas, look into the eyes of a huge silverback at close range, watch babies cling to their mothers, [and] laugh at youngsters playing in the trees.” I have goosebumps now imagining that. Emmy’s new husband posted these photos from their tour (I don’t know which company they used) that show the gorillas at close range, and Emmy taking pictures.
I am getting goosebumps again looking at the photos and video Emmy posted, which actually show gorillas playing in trees. Emmy wrote in a caption that she walked into the mountains in Rwanda with a guide to observe like Dian Fossey and that it was a “once in a lifetime experience.”
Plus she posted more photos of wildlife including leopards and zebras. The pictures are so clear and close, she must have a good camera and it must have been amazing to see in person. Now I’m jealous. It’s so nice to see celebrities going on conservation adventures instead of posting typical beachside bikini photos. I never get jealous of those.
