After making us cry for two seasons on This is Us, it’s nice to see Mandy Moore giving us a reason to smile, and, in my case at least, feel the white, hot heat of envy.
The 34-year-old actress, engaged to Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith, spent a Instagram-worthy weekend with her closest gal pals (and a token guy, Chase Weideman, who is the Director of VIP Relations for design house ATM Anthony Thomas Melillo) to celebrate her upcoming nuptials.
Mandy’s This is Us co-star Susan Kelechi Watson (because if there’s anyone from the show who could liven up a party, it’s Beth) and Minka Kelly joined some of her gal pals for a California road trip to the gorgeous Big Sur area for one memorable bachelorette party. The crew enjoyed fine dining, spa outings and, of course, wine – documenting it on social media.
The group had an unofficial dress code, wearing outfits in red, pink, orange and golden hues. Guest and blogger/fashionista Emily Schuman posted a group photo on her IG feed, with the caption, “The best crew for the most incredible girl. #mooresunset.” Accessories for the guests’ ensembles came in the form of necklaces featuring Mandy’s face on a charm. Well, I always thought Mandy was charming, so this is quite fitting.
Among some of the other photos shared from the trip are a great shot of Susan and Mandy as well as the trio of Mandy, her BFF Minka and another guest. Mandy shared lots of photos on her Instagram story.
It wasn’t all wining and dining. The crew also managed to get out and appreciate the great outdoors, posing for a group shot at the top of a cliff.
Wow, what a party. I can only assume my invitation got lost in the mail. Congrats, Mandy.
