Jamie Lee Curtis officiated her daughter’s cosplay wedding in their backyard

In July of last year, when Jamie Lee Curtis told us her daughter Ruby Guest had come out as transgender, she also said that Ruby was getting married. Jamie didn’t give many details at the time, just that Ruby and her fiancée planned to marry this year and that Jamie was officiating. Guess what, we now have the details! Ruby and Kynthia were married on May 28 in Jamie and Christopher Guest’s backyard. The wedding’s theme looked like Have Fun, if you ask me, but the guests were asked to dress up as World of Warcraft characters, although any ol’ cosplay was acceptable. The whole thing looked bright and colorful and simply lovely.

On Saturday Jamie Lee Curtis took some time off from shit-talking Doctor Strange and all other movies that aren’t Everything Everywhere All At Once to officiate her daughter’s backyard cosplay wedding. 26-year-old Ruby Guest and new wife Kynthia said “I do” dressed up as video game characters; Ruby was Squigly from Skull Girls and Kynthia was Elphelt Valentine from Guilty Gear. 62-year-old Jamie Lee cosplayed as Jaina Proudmoore from World of Warcraft.

Jamie posted the above picture on her Instagram with the caption: “WIFE IS SWEET! Ruby and Kynthia 5/29/2022“. Guests were encouraged to dress up in the World of Warcraft theme.

The couple’s eldest daughter, Annie, 35, also got married in the family’s backyard back in 2019.

Between the costumes and the rainbow color scheme, the wedding was so vibrant. The cake was just a simply chocolate cake but surrounded with color in both flowers and figurines on the table. There were a bunch of balloon clusters, arches and ropes, umbrellas for shade and tents, again, all in the rainbow hues. It’s impossible not to feel happy looking at Jamie’s photos. As for the costumes, I stand firmly in the camp that a wedding should be exactly what the couple wants. As Emily over at DListed pointed out, Ruby and Kynthia’s costumes look like they made their first kiss a little difficult, but they have the rest of their lives to kiss. I admit my first thought was “oh christ, they must’ve baked in those heavy outfits!” but this weekend was temperate for So Cal, they were probably okay.

As mentioned, Jamie was dressed as Jaina Proudmoore from WoW. I have no idea who that is, but she looked amazing. She said in her caption that she got her costume out of Russia. (She ordered from ETSY, so she’s supporting the individual, not you-know-who.) There are no food details beyond the cake, sorry. There was a photo booth. How beautiful that both Jamie and Christopher’s daughters married at home and that they’ll always have that connection. If I had to give any critique it would be that, as you know, I felt if you’re going to have Jamie Lee Curtis at a cosplay wedding, there should’ve been a decidedly Halloween bent to the theme. At least she got one pic in for me with the shot below, bless her. Congratulations to Ruby and Kynthia, may you know many happy years together.

    I just love Jaimie and congrats to her daughter. In Jaimie’s latest movie, she has the most ridiculous wig/outfit and it’s wonderful. Want to see the film. Jaimie is a national treasure. One of the few women over 50 we see rather consistently in films.

    That’s really sweet! But I am so glad you specified it was temperate weather because my next thought after “that’s so sweet” was that (between excitement, heat, and heavy costumes) “I would have been an unconscious pool of sweat on the ground in 20 minutes!!”. 🤣

    Looks like a good time was had by all. Plus, tiramisu wedding cake! And I agree the wedding should be whatever the couple wants it to be.

    Jamie and her husband seem to have raised such interesting and unpretentious kids. It’s almost weird to see the daughter of a celebrity having an intimate, fun, original, and what looks like a relatively inexpensive wedding! Not one of the multi-million dollar cliffside weddings we’re used to where the tents and chairs cost more than my house.

    I saw all the photos on her Insta feed. The wedding looked so festive and colorful and joyful!! Wonderful and congorats to the happy couple!! (If you played WoW you may know “congorats.”) Thanks for the good news post!! <3 <3 <3
