Last June, Beanie Feldstein got engaged to her partner, Bonnie-Chance Roberts. Two weeks ago, the couple got married in a summer camp-themed wedding. And guess what? Vogue covered it! So let’s dive into this zillion-dollar affair featuring celeb guests like Ben Platt, Sarah Paulson, Adam Levine, and NO LEA MICHELE.
29-year-old Beanie and 32-year-old Bonnie met back in 2018, on the set of the British flick, How To Build A Girl. Beanie starred in the movie and British Bonnie produced. The two started out as friends, but, as filming went on, they fell in lurrrv:
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.”
After reuniting and getting engaged, the couple decided to throw a summer camp-themed wedding at Cedar Lakes Estate in New York’s Hudson Valley:
“It is our happy place together,” Beanie says. “I grew up going to summer camp for ten years, and my parents and both sets of my grandparents met at summer camp, so camp is a lineage of love through the generations of my family. Even though we met in London and fell in love on a film set, to get married at a camp was a truly beautiful emotional homecoming.”
The rehearsal dinner was Friday, May 19, and the wedding was the next day. For the rehearsal, Beanie wore custom Rodarte:
Very cute, and, personally, I like this dress better than the one she wore to her actual wedding (sorry, Beanz), which was GUCCI, BABY:
“After we got engaged, I called my stylist Erin Walsh, and we started daydreaming. At that time, I was in the middle of working with Gucci, as I was beyond lucky to be a part of the Gucci Love Parade campaign. She said to me, ‘Beanie, it’s your wedding—what’s your dream?’ and I said, ‘Gucci!’ So, she asked them if they would be willing to make me a wedding dress. I could not believe that they said yes!”
Um, I can believe it. You’re a movie star. Here’s the dress:
Full disclosure. I decided to follow the Vogue Wedding Instagram account after I got engaged, and, as much as I enjoy gawking at lavish weddings, some of these write-ups spark a deep, insidious hatred inside my heart. All the brides pretend to be relatable, normal people, but then they’ll drop some bomb like, “I wanted to keep things simple, so I asked my godmother, Vera Wang, to custom design a little something.” Beanie, younger sister of Jonah Hill/daughter of the tour accountant for Guns N’ Roses, is no exception. She grew up L.A. rich, bitch, attending Harvard-Westlake School with Billie Lourd, Kathryn Gallagher (Peter Gallagher’s actress daughter), and Ben Platt. Ben and Kathryn were both at the wedding, and Ben sang Beanie and Bonnie’s first dance song:
“We just kept mouthing ‘I love you’ to him while he was singing,” Beanie says. “It was such a special moment. And then we truly danced the night away in the barn—and then even more at the after-party in the treehouse.”
Beanie’s American Crime Story: Impeachment co-star, Sarah Paulson (“one of the greatest friends I’ve ever known”), was one of her many bridesmaids. Other celebrity attendees included Sarah’s partner, Holland Taylor, Beanie’s Booksmart co-star, Kaitlyn Dever, her “lifelong family friends” Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo, and British writer Caitlin Moran (she’s the one that wrote the film/book How To Build A Girl). There was no mention of Jonah Hill in the Vogue piece, but, based on his hatred of all things publicity, maybe he just shied away from photos.
Here are some more wedding pics:
In keeping with the summer camp theme, guests got custom “Camp B&B” sweatshirts with special enamel pins. At the rehearsal dinner, each table featured different color bandanas with embroidered song lyrics and friendship bracelets. There was also a s’more campfire, pictures on the dock, and the reception was in a big barn. OK, but Bean n’ Bon sorta fucked up, cuz they completely forgot the three most important parts of camp: poison ivy, lice outbreaks, and mean girls who stage a cabin intervention for you because you won’t stop joke-screaming, “I’m soooorryyy!” like Simon Birch did after he accidentally killed Ashley Judd with a pop-fly in the seminal 1998 classic, Simon Birch. Or maybe that was just a me thing?
