It’s rain on a wedding day when Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan give a toast at the first-ever wedding held during a movie premiere. Entertainment Tonight’s Mary Hart officiates as the happy couple is joined in holy matrimony during Made of Honor festivities held at NYC’s Ziegfeld Theater.
The pink carpet is soaking as bridesmaids and groomsmen head up to celebrate the nuptials of Shaun Bollinger and Michelle Golightly. Next on their agenda? An all-expenses-paid honeymoon in Paris and Venice!
Patrick and Michelle are the first to congratulate the bride and groom after they make it official.
In the romantic comedy, Patrick plays a “maid” of honor at his best female pal’s nuptials. How do their wedding experiences compare?
“The photographers at my wedding were just drunk, and never got a good picture,” the friendly father of three reveals as his wife Jill holds court on the carpet. (Her L’Wren Scott dress is beautiful!)
Michelle tells me she had a male maid of honor in real life — just like in the movie.
Busy Phillips longs for the groom in the flick. “I was once in a wedding where there were two maids of honor – me and my other friend – because our friend who was getting married couldn’t decide between the two of us. We were both the maids of honor. It was nice because we got to split the duties.”
Colin Cowie shares a wedding tip. “The best thing with any wedding is when it moves. The worst thing is when you’re at a wedding and you keep on looking at your watch. We live in a casual world today. Don’t try to make it fancy. Make it real, and keep it moving. It doesn’t cost a cent to keep it on time.”
Does Mary have more weddings in her future?
“I haven’t really thought about it beyond this wedding, but if you’re interested in renewing your vows…”
Made Of Honor is in theaters now.
