Actress/comedian/writer Angela Kinsey and actor/baker Joshua Snyder, tied the knot yesterday in Topanga, California, in a heartfelt ceremony that was a total family affair. "Our wedding was more than just two people coming together, it was a family coming together," Angela says. "Josh and his sons and my daughter and I. We were so proud of our children. They each wrote something to say during the ceremony. They wanted us to know how much it means to them that we were becoming a family. It was truly moving. I don't think there was a dry eye in the room! We saved their speeches and are going to frame them!"
Working with event planner and designer Beth Helmstetter, the pair created the big day, which took place at The 1909, in Topanga, California, and boasted an aesthetic that was both romantic and rustic, thanks to plenty of lush garden blooms in the shades of blush pink and creams.
The 130 guests included Angela's family from Texas and Josh's from Colorado. Upon arrival, loved ones were treated to watermelon agua fresca and lemonade to combat the unseasonably warm fall day. Following the ceremony, guests received custom copper mugs that doubled as escort cards upon arrival to cocktail hour. Throughout the night, the crowd sipped Moscow Mules, Angela and Josh's favorite cocktail.
For dinner, Angela and Josh chose a casual and approachable family-style feast that began with a fresh fig and kale salad. After a hearty meal, a bevy of bite-size treats (like southern banana pudding shots, s'mores tarts, and classic vanilla bean cupcakes) were on offer. One special confection—a petite one-tiered wedding cake with a Lego cake topper created by their children—was saved for later, when the bride and groom took it home to share with their family. A fitting end to the evening, considering the proposal was a family affair too, with the kiddos each taking a part.
