In the 1980s, Drew Barrymore and I were neighbors in a condo on Doheny Drive in Beverly Hills. Even then, Drew was a charmer. Well, she’s come a long way from Doheny Drive, and now she’s a bride. A very happy Drew Barrymore, beaming by all accounts, tied the knot Saturday with her fiancé of five months, art dealer Will Kopelman, at her Montecito, Calif., home. Just minutes from where Kim K had her dazzling wedding. But Drew, now 37-years-old is a much more solid and serious person than any reality star, so we are all hoping the mom-to-be will be happy. And take an exclusive look at Drew’s beautiful mansion in Montecito as well.
Designed by celebrity wedding planners Yifat Oren and Stefanie Cove – who handled Reese Witherspoon’s country chic nuptials last March – the intimate ceremony was “a classic, simple, very pretty, garden-inspired wedding,” a source tells Highlight Hollywood. A rabbi officiated.
Guests included Jimmy Fallon and wife Nancy Juvonen, Busy Philipps and her husband, and Cameron Diaz, who were also present Friday night for rehearsal dinner at the San Ysidro Ranch.
The actress, who is pregnant with her first child, was spotted trying on wedding veils at a New York City bridal shop in May, donned a Chanel gown for her big day – not surprisingly, as her new husband’s father, Arie Kopelman, is a former Chanel CEO.
As the newlyweds look ahead to impending parenthood, friends say the former Hollywood wild child – who was twice married before – is eager to begin her life as a mom. “She’s telling people that she’s finally ready for a quieter, more family-oriented life,” an insider added.
