Ashley Greene & Paul Khoury got married in San Jose on Friday

This summer sure has been the season for celebrity weddings, hasn’t it? Twilight actress Ashley Greene wed Australian TV personality Paul Khoury in a romantic ceremony in San Jose, California on Friday. Nestled in a redwood forest, the couple made it legal in front of 120 guests, including Eiza Gonzalez and Josh Duhamel, Aaron and Lauren Paul, Zac Efron, Liam Hemsworth and Brittany Snow. Ashley’s Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson, was also in attendance.

Ashley and Paul have been dating since 2013. Paul popped the question in December of 2016, getting on one knee at the bottom of Bridal Veil Falls during a vacation to Australia and New Zealand. Ashley shared the video on Instagram, adding in the caption, “This is the most beautiful moment I could have ever hoped for. You’ve successfully made me the happiest, luckiest woman alive. I can’t wait to show you my unfaltering immeasurable love for the rest of our lives.”

A Brides magazine story detailing the day reported that the couple used wedding planner Mindy Weiss to create an unforgettable event keeping with their vision of “a dreamy woodland, inspired by the verdant nature of the venue’s surroundings.” To bring this vision to life, Mindy created a stunning floral ceremony arch that served as the backdrop for the ceremony. Ashley said it was “the perfect choice to represent the eternal and everlasting love that Paul and I were celebrating on our wedding day.”

The ceremony was officiated by the couple’s friend, Dave Osokow, who kept things light, cracking jokes during the ceremony. In keeping with the playful atmosphere, the couple employed an unusual way to choose who would recite their vows first. A source told PEOPLE, “Paul and Ashley [played] rock-paper-scissors to decide who would say their vows first during the ceremony. Ashley ended up ‘losing’ and went first.” As much as humor played a part in the festivities, the vows, which the couple wrote themselves, were emotional. PEOPLE‘s source shared “It was very emotional and there were definitely some tears. They talked about being best friends and how they make each other better people.”

Ashley admitted to Brides that she was nervous about finding the perfect gown, but had no need to fear. She told the magazine, “I found a designer named Katie May who created a ‘Barcelona’ dress that spoke to me. Thankfully, she’s based in L.A., so I worked with her to create a custom gown that was 100 percent Ashley. It was absolutely perfect.” I’m not going to argue with that. The gown is absolutely stunning.

What bride wouldn’t want to wear two gorgeous gowns on her big day? Ashley not only looked radiant during the ceremony, she changed into a second gown, a lovely sheer creation by designer Windi Williams, for the reception. I love this one too. The reception was a festive affair, from a dinner among the trees to the couple’s first dance to Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.”

After seeing all of the photos and reading the details of Ashley’s big day in Brides, I have a serious case of “bridal envy.” What a gorgeous ceremony. Congratulations to the happy couple. (If you need to unload either one of those gowns, Ashley, call me.)

    I got bored reading about this giant pile of bland.

    Congrats to them anyway.

  2. Mrs. Wellen-Melon says:

    It looks lovely.

    I am puzzled. Having grown up in the South Bay, when I think San Jose, I think All the charm of a parking lot of a tattoo parlor. I don’t think destination wedding. Palo Alto, Los Altos – sure. Anything Mountain View and south just is…not glam.

    • KidV says:

      Exactly! I’m sitting here trying to figure out where in San Jose there is a wooded forest like that. Golden hills, sure. But wooded forest??

    • C says:

      Looks like it was actually Los Gatos which makes sense… I lived in the South Bay for over a decade and it’s beautiful. It’s just when you compare it to like Woodside, Monterey, SC, SF, or whatever, then yeah it’s not as great… But that’s just because other parts of the bay are insanely gorgeous.

  3. damejudi says:

    Maybe it’s just me, but in the dress for the ceremony she looks like she’s serving up her boobs. She’s young, she’s pretty, but I don’t think that’s a good look.

    • JustJen says:

      THANK YOU!!! I had to look at that a few times and just decided it doesn’t look good from the side. I haven’t looked up other angles but, yeah…kind of odd.

  4. Bridget says:

    Ashley Green – there’s a name I haven’t heard in a long, long time.

    • Neelyo says:

      Yeah she was trying so hard for awhile and then nothing. I guess she couldn’t translate that TWILIGHT buzz into anything else.

      • Bridget says:

        She and the Twilight kids thought they were going to be HUGE stars. Which clearly happened.

  5. Mia4s says:

    While pretty much all of Hollywood is thirsty as hell, this girl impressed me with her level of thirst. Look up he tag on Lainey. Dear GOD.

    Anyway it’s nice she got some attention for a good reason. I even clicked on the story. There you go dear, *click*.

  6. HeyThere! says:

    The engagement Instagram video seemed fake and very staged like they almost rehearsed: “okay I’ll dance when you say yes, I’ll jump up and down then be ready I’ll puck you up and twirl a few times. Then dramatically look into the camera, then gaze at your ring then the camera again!Okay?! Ugh sorry not sorry.

  7. Marigold says:

    So, what is she storing in the top of that ceremony gown? Snacks? It looks like a trough.

  8. EMc says:

    Maybe I’m feelikg overly emotional today, but I enjoyed this! What a beautiful wedding. I want to have another wedding now!

  9. S says:

    So, her ceremony dress has a boob shelf and her reception dress was see through? Way to keep it klassy, Ms Hallmark movie regular. I mean, wear whatever you want, but there’s something to be said for not requiring flower petals to act as pasties at an event your nan is likely to be attending.

  10. Miss E says:

    In some of the photos she has major Megyn Kelly face.

    • Laughysaphy says:

      Yes! I was thinking the same thing. She’s morphed into Megyn Kelly, yikes 😳

  11. YeahRight says:

    Her dress(es) look like nightgowns to me but congrats.
    The only thing I ask of anyone nowadays is if they’re a Trump supporter.
    All the best Becky!

  12. bella says:

    Wow! She looks gorgeous and it the wedding looks gorgeous too! i I love both dresses! Definitley dress/wedding envy

  13. meh says:

    Is this her real face?? It’s very…pinched.

  14. Jh says:

    Not a whole lot of symmetry going on in the face department with these two.
