Beanie Feldstein & Bonnie Chance Roberts’ wedding included custom Gucci and s’mores

I didn’t know too much about Beanie Feldstein’s personal life, though I did follow the weird Funny Girl drama last year. She was fired (or quit?) from the Broadway show and replaced with Lea Michele, who I guess is now un-canceled. But Vogue has a writeup about Beanie’s recent wedding to producer Bonnie-Chance Roberts, whom Beanie calls “Bon.” Guests included Sara Paulson, Ben Platt, Adam Levine, and Behati Prinsloo. They met while making the 2018 movie How to Build a Girl and Bonnie proposed in 2021. Sometimes I front like a big cynic, but the way they talked about each other to Vogue is so sweet and romantic that it warmed the cockles of my frozen heart. And their wedding looked beautiful in that rustic-barn way that’s so popular now for weddings. The rehearsal dinner even had a summer camp theme with smores and bandana tablecloths.

Their love story is so sweet: The two clicked from the very beginning—first as friends, and then, as the relationship evolved, into love. They spent the summer of 2018 making How to Build a Girl while also taking walks through Hampstead Heath, eating dinners at Osteria Basilico in Notting Hill, and falling for each other. “From the moment we first kissed, we both knew we would get married and months after that, Bon had announced that when the time came, she wanted to be the one to propose to me,” Beanie recalls. “Because of the pandemic, we were not able to see each other in person for 13 months.”

The rehearsal dinner was camp themed: “On Friday night, we wanted to take our guests on a true camp experience with bandana tablecloths and s’mores for dessert, with pennant banners and friendship bracelets: a true ‘We’re at summer camp’ feeling,” Beanie says. “Then, we really wanted to surprise guests when they entered the barn for the reception. We wanted it to feel unexpectedly elevated and romantic and like nothing they had seen.”

Bonnie’s wedding look was inspired by Julia Roberts: When it came to thinking about what Bonnie would wear, the couple knew they had the opportunity to really change the way people look at bridal suiting. “Bon knew she wanted to wear a suit, but she wanted to look like a bride, not a groom,” Beanie explains. “When we were researching for inspiration, we came across a stunning photograph of Julia Roberts modeling the suit that was to become Bon’s—we figured that if it was good enough for the queen of ‘the Robertses’ it would work for the Scouse one too!”

I love Beanie and Bon’s wedding day outfits, both custom Gucci. Beanie’s dress feels like the charming elements of Gucci’s current aesthetic without the cloying ones–a little trompe l’oeil bow at the neckline, flouncy lace sleeves, and a floral applique at the waist. It feels very of its time while also having a timeless silhouette. And Bonnie’s pink satin suit with a white waistcoat is so fabulous. I love seeing how queer couples interpret wedding fashion and make it their own. Their wedding aesthetic reminds me a little bit of Wes Anderson, cute and twee and whimsical. That’s a good thing in my books. If there’s ever a time to go sentimental and whimsical, it’s a wedding.

The idea of smores at a rehearsal dinner sounds fun, except the thought of melting chocolate and gooey marshmallows oozing around makes me paranoid about staining my clothes. When one of my friends got married a couple of years ago, instead of having wedding cake, she had little hand pies for dessert. You got to choose from a bunch of flavors–marionberry, peach, apple, cherry, vanilla creme–and it was a nice change from the yellow-sheet-cake-with-raspberry-jam that seems to be the go-to for weddings. I feel like wedding cake is never as good as you expect it to be, and I’m all for unconventional desserts instead.

    Beanie and Bonnie, even their names are precious.

    They looked fantastic and so ecstatic on their wedding day.

    And big ups to them letting the kids have the bench to get the photo. I have been to enough events to know how that goes.

    Where was Beanie’s other brother Jonah Hill??

    This does look charming – and their clothes are great – and perfectly tailored to them!

  5. Normades says:

    The whole camp theme could have been so twee (Mason jars! S’mores!) but all the Gucci dresses and suits were super classy and they made the whole thing so sweet and personalized. Congrats to the happy couple!

    Beanie looks beautiful and so happy. They’re so cute together! They look like people I would be friends with, just richer.

  7. Blairski says:

    I loved the details – The camp pins! The friendship bracelets! The embroidered bandannas! That Vogue piece was a beautiful way to waste 30 minutes on a Sunday morning.

    • Jane says:

      Agreed, reading it made my weekend! It was all so sincere and adorable. And it was lovely to see a celebrity wedding where the guests looked like normal people who were there for genuine reasons rather than aesthetic ones.

  8. The Recluse says:

    Is it weird that, facially, they resemble each other?
    That ‘mirror’ attraction that you can see in some couples…

    • Minnieder says:

      I thought the exact same thing! Like sisters (and I don’t mean that to be a negative comment).
      And I love their looks!

        I was thinking the same thing. And, as stated, no negativity meant, just looked at them both and went, hmmm, look like fraternal twins.
