For those who don't know, Chris Hardwick and Lydia Hearst threw an epically unconventional wedding. The Martha Stewart Weddings cover girl wore a pink-tinted gown, the Doctor Who TARDIS made its way onto the cake, and guests partied the night away alongside zombies and robots. But what guest James Corden wore to the festivities may take the cake.
Lydia Hearst and Chris Hardwick Are Married—and You Won't Believe Their Wedding Theme!
The couple—who are self-proclaimed nerds—threw the quirky wedding of the century, and on The Late Late Show last night, James Corden reminisced about the festivities.
Corden told Hardwick, who was a guest on the show, that the offbeat union was "a great day," and that the cowboy theme was "fantastic" and "incredible." Hardwick interjected however, to clarify the party's aesthetic. "My wife's family are ranchers, and so she said 'cowboy formal,'" he shared. "It was actually sci-fi and cowboy together."
Corden took the cowboy idea in full stride, showing up in a bejeweled red cowboy outfit. "I really went for it," the host assured the crowd, to which everyone indisputably agreed.
Hardwick also shared a few more details about the wedding, specifically commenting on its no-phone rule. "She's super cool, never gets upset about anything, but that was the one thing where she put her foot down," the Nerdist founder said of Hearst. "She was like 'I'm not going to walk down the aisle and see a bunch of phones sticking up.'"
Though the newlyweds initially argued about the decree, Hardwick later realized how great of an idea it really was. "I was like, 'Sweetie, you can't, these are lifelines, you can't tell people not to!" he recalled, but quickly came around on the big day. "She was right—everyone, I'm telling you. Have a party with no phones." "Everyone was in the moment, we were all talking, engaged with each other," he remembered, and "we weren't trying to capture the moment for later"—they were all in the moment, instead.
