It feels like some summers are lousy with famous people weddings. So many that I’m sure People magazine has to set up a makeshift Thunderdome filled with publicists to see which celebrity couple gets each week’s “INSIDE OUR WEDDING ALBUM!” cover. This year wasn’t one of those years. There was these two, and this glamorous pugstravaganza, and that’s about it. Well, now I can add one more to the Post-It note-sized list of celebrity summer weddings.
People says that 31-year-old Lydia Hearst, daughter of Patty Hearst and one-season recipient of Naomi’s side-eye on The Face, and 44-year-old Chris Hardwick, former host of Singled Out and current king of the nerds, got married in front of 450 people this weekend in Pasadena, CA. Lydia wore a pink dress that sort of looks like the David’s Bridal “Look 4 less” version of Gwen Stefani’s. (It was a custom Christian Siriano). Both Chris and Lydia get a boner for nerd stuff, so they had a cake that was shaped like a TARDIS from Doctor Who. According to Chris’ Instagram, their wedding was also filled with zombies, droids, and Jawas. That actually sounds like a nerd’s dream panel on an episode of Comedy Central’s @midnight.
No word on who shot the wedding, but it’s pretty obvious Lydia didn’t scroll through her phone and call up Terry Richardson (NSFW). Of course, I’m just basing all of this on the fact that it appears that neither of them have been instructed to rub their crotches against that railing in that picture above.
As for guests, lots of famous people went. But there was one person missing: Chris’ former Singled Out co-host Jenny McCarthy. How rude! Did the years between 1995 and 1997 mean nothing to you, Chris? Or maybe Chris did plan on inviting America’s Sexy Fart, but tore up her invite once they decided on a cake shaped like a telephone box. Who knows if Jenny would be able to restrain herself from pointing to the cake and shouting “I bet I’ve had more guys inside my box!” It’s best not to take that chance.
